"Coward" as written by Brian Mcternan, James Buddy Nielsen, Daniel Gerard Trapp, Garrett Michael Zablocki and Jason Black....
I blame myself for never saying anything.
You're dead to me,
But I'm the fool who still believes
That one day you'll actually see
That you missed out on everything.
My innocence you devoured,
You fuckin' coward!

I'm finding faith in myself tonight
And finally, I got it right.
I must forgive you to move on.
It's my only choice;
Cause' you'll never come
To fill up all the cracks in this foundation.

You're the fear, all the panic and shame.
I'm afraid I'll be like you one day.
I'd love to hear the things you tell yourself
To pass the blame.

Your own daughter barely knows your face.
You set the fire and then walked away,
Leaving everyone to clean the mess that you have made.
Everything you passed down to me,
The stiff right hand, this fuckin' disease.
What do I get for being your son
Nothing!

I'm finding faith in myself tonight
And finally, I got it right.
I must forgive you to move on.
It's my only choice;
Cause' you'll never come
To fill up all the cracks in this foundation.

Jesus Christ, look what you've done.
Abandoning everyone that you should love.
You fuckin' failed me.
All that I have left
Is a choice to forgive or forget.
Hold your hand to the fire
You fuckin' liar

I'm finding faith in myself tonight
And finally, I got it right.
I must forgive you to move on.
It's my only choice;
Cause' you'll never come
To fill up all the cracks in this foundation.

    General CommentDefinitely about Buddy's father. And there's only one thing wrong with this, its "All the fear", not "you're the fear". It's from the booklet

    My InterpretationSong is definatly about the relationship between Buddy and his father, and how his dad's a coward for leaving his family to grow up by themselves.
