Why can't I beat the bankers
Deal tehn find a home to rob
Why can't I lie and cheat and steal
Who wants an honest job
And if I curse you night and day
My integrety's been tried
While I waste a life away
Why don't you try and hide
The end has just begun
The end has just begun
Your life's been run
My bastard son
Why can't I turn off the light
And see I'm all alone
Why can't I change my liar's
Life and find myself a home
And if I did where would I be
Lost in my due misery
So if there's truth you
Better keep it away from me
It away from me
So why can't I shut the
Window tight and keep the
World outside
And with no friends in sight
To help me fight the tides
My own rests in a hotel room
And on a switchblade knife
Why must I find the truth so
Soon and end this bastard's life
The end has just begun
The end has just begun
Your life's been run
My bastard son
