Ever since I was a child
You always said that I should understand the rules
You take some and give less
Sit high above the rest...don't you

As I ask a simple question
Cuts me off with his reply
He's been practicing for decades
Now he thinks I have the time
He flows in and out of riddles
Looking me straight in the eye
But it seems like something's missing
From the days when he was more my size

Ten years older and I've finally found my pride
This old man comes rolling home to die
Old feelings make it hard to decide
Just what it means to me

Everything exists 'tween black and white
You can twist and distort the most blatant of lies
Or just offer up solutions
Practiced only in your mind

    General Commentit seems like it's a song about a son that has been sent on an emotional rollercoaster per order of his dad. it seems like the old man comes back to him later on down the road to die, and the son's not sure if he should let him back in his life again cause it just hurts too much to think about it (or he doesn't wanna deal with emotions the thought of the older man brings up). Maybe the son's not sure if he's sad or happy the old man is dying. He doesn't know what he's supposed to feel, how he's supposed to react, or exactly what to do.
