Sins of the Father

from by Tales of Pandemonium

lyrics

Too many around me are like
Getting to my head
Sometimes got me feeling
I’m better off dead

I found myself made out to be someone
Who died a long time ago
Tow the party line now son
Or the Whip will unfurl

Do what I say
Don’t do like I do
Be from me
But don’t do the things that I done

It comes to my mind
That what you see is what you get
I’m at this time in my life
Where the weight of burden is debt

Inherited obligations
Way back down my ancestral line
Got me leading my life
That doesn’t feel like it’s mine

Do what I say
Just don’t do what I do
Be from me
But just don’t do the things that I done

When I was in my Fathers house
Strict rules were inferred
Some things never spoken of
Children seen but not heard

Now fate has befallen me
And my Father is who I am
Subconscious patterns unwittingly
Made me pay for being the son of that man

Do what I say
Just don’t do like I do
Be from me
But don’t do the things that he done

The sins of the Father
Sins of the Father visit the Son
The sins of the Father
Sins of the Father visit the Son
