You dreamed he'd shine like the sun
Now your son has set
Hey dad, grab another cigarette
Ashes fall like an unpaid debt
Come on everybody
Place your bets
In seventh grade he dug his grave
Trying to be cool with the cool kids, hey
Follow everything they say
You might fit in if you misbehave
At sixteen, he promised he'd be clean
You didn't bend but you sure did lean.
You do not deserve this

Hey Mr. Wilmington
Yeah I heard about your son
It's hard enough to hide your scars
In small town usa
Sweet Mr. Wilmington
Yeah I read about your son
Don't blame yourself
You raised him right
Remember that when you can't sleep at night

At 21 you found his gun
Hey dad it's just begun
The ties that bind they come undone
Come on everybody just for fun
At 24 you find him on the floor
Decadence was all he wore
You do not deserve this

Hey Mr. Wilmington
Yeah I heard about your son
It's hard enough to hide your scars
In small town usa
Sweet Mr. Wilmington
Yeah I read about your son
Don't blame yourself
You raised him right
Remember that when you can't sleep at night

And na na na na na
Na na na na na
Na na na na na
Na na na na na

At the funeral
Read his eulogy
Insincere apologies
You do not desrerve this
All the papers and press decide
Hey, just another suicide
You do not deserve this

Hey Mr. Wilmington
Yeah I heard about your son
It's hard enough to hide your scars
In small town usa
Sweet Mr. Wilmington
Yeah I read about your son
Don't blame yourself
You raised him right
Remember that when you can't sleep at night.
