"Wake up. It's time for school. Get ready. I don't wanna be late again. Be good. Do your best today."
I'm grown as Dad and these words still apply.
Day by day, I grow to be just like you
Is it inevitably true to the extent of me and you?
You can't quit the curse of a hard-headed boy with dreams that'll never work
When they pronounce me dead in the ground, what will they say?
Will they say that I was pointless? Will they say that I was nothing?
Will they say I only hurt the people that I loved?
Will they say I was a bad son? Will they be happy when I am gone?
Will they laugh as they lower my casket in the ground?
Or will they say I was the most outstanding, selfless person to walk this earth?
I hope to God he sees my true intentions when I cover my heart in dirt
And I hope everyone who loves me will smile when they see a red tide forming off the ocean's coast and know that it is me.
And I hope in the last second that I breathe, I praise my mother and father and mutter under my breath that "It was all for them"
I only hurt, I only hurt.
