The dam broke daddy, but I never noticed the flood

V1:
I guess why doesn't matter, but I know I always will.
wonder why you were the you, the one I tried to kill.
I left you long before I knew,  you were always there,
by the time I had it figured out,  I claimed I didn't care.

chorus:
Father, why'd you do it?
Father why'd you die?
Why'd you live your life like that?
Daddy Daddy,   Daddy why? 
Father, why'd you do it?
Father why'd you die?
Why'd you live your life like that?
Why is it  I can't       cry? 

V2:
All the common obstacles, the fashions of the day.
excuses, reasons, happenings,  all came into play.
I said you built a wall between, I said you didn't care,
By the time I had it figured out, the place you'd been was air.

Bridge:
Oh the dam broke brothers, 
but I never saw the flood
A tide of life washed over me 
and with it I made mud
Of the solitary life I've lived 
but now I know it's true:
Brothers please forgive them, 
for they know not what they do.

V3:
I guess why doesn't matter, but I know I always will,
wonder why you were the you, the one I tried to kill.
Anger burning in my heart, sure as hell I tried,
To kill the man who lived your life, but I'm the one who died.

Chorus:
Father, why'd you do it?
Father why'd you die?
Why'd you live your life like that?
Daddy Daddy,   Daddy why? 
Father, why'd you do it?
Father why'd you die?
Why'd you live your life like that?
Why is it  I can't       cry? 

V4:
Many years have passed on by, with you not around.
I never felt much different, with you in the ground.
But if I could see you one more time, one thing I'd ask of you,
Daddy please forgive me, if it's the last thing that you do.

Final chorus:
Father, why'd you do it?
Father why'd you die?
Why'd you live your life like that?
Daddy Daddy, Daddy why? 
Father, why'd you do it?
Father why'd you die?
Why'd you live your life like that?
Daddy daddy  let me       cry.
