You say you’re never coming out
Once you get inside your daddy’s house
Well, you got nothing to cry about
So how ‘bout you just shut your pretty mouth
C’mon

Well, your daddy lives up on the hill
Where he lights up all his pretty things
He don’t know I got the key, baby
I think I’ll go and have myself a peek
Now listen

What your daddy done for you
He’s gonna do for me too
You got no need for tears
You got no need to pout
You got nothing to cry about

The lights are off so take the key
And take a little walk with me
If you wanna have some fun
Baby, show me daddy’s gun

Well, what your daddy done for you
He’s gonna do for me too
And if you want some
You better get it now
You got nothing to cry about

What your daddy done for you
He’s gonna do for me too
So shut your pretty mouth
And put your foot down
You got nothing to cry about

What your daddy done for you
He’s gonna do for me too
I set you free now
Let’s burn the fucking town
You got nothing to cry about

    Song MeaningAwesome song! I think its a sordid tale of a father molesting his daughter. He locks her up. This guy loves her and is going to set her free.

    General CommentHmm...

    I think this song is about a guy who is dating a girl, and her father doesn't like him. So he breaks into the "daddy's" house to kill the father and convince the girl to go with him.

    I think the line is

    "Where he locks up all his pretty things",

    This implies that the "Daddy" is protecting (locking up) his valuables, including his daughter.
