All these years
An angry child
Broken shattered
Torn inside

Where were you?
Where were...

I feel old
I feel dead
Barely hangin'
By a thread

Where were you?
Where were...

To my father
How could you run?
You walked away
Abandoned your son
Broke my heart
Left me dyin'
So fucked up
Where I came from

What's a father without a son?
It's like a bullet without a gun
I live to die, I'll fly away
You're the knife and I'm the prey
But you're dead, so fucking dead
We all gotta die, so fucking die

I love you Daddy

    General Commenti think the song is all distorted coz nikki's image of his father is distorted coz he never got to know him properly and he has know idea what kind of person he is.

    General Commentim pretty sure that this was off the CD that they started to go 'nine inch nails' which i really thought was gay as hell... i might be wrong but i really like how you thought of how the song is distorted and how he portraits the image of his father... thats artsy adn its awesome right on.

    General CommentIt’s about how Nikki’s dad wanted nothing to do with him. In the movie The led Nikki too legally change his name to Nikki and burn his ID showing his birth name.
