I come from a genius, I am my father's son
Yeah, too bad he was a psychopath and now I'm the next in line
Lonely nest dear mother, yes, surely she's a work of art
I never got top dollar, but she gave us all a star

Can I get a reprieve?
This gene pool don't hurt me
Can I beg a release
From the volunteer amputee?
From the moment I fell
I called on DNA
Why such betrayal
Got me tooth and nail

Yeah, how's about one conversation with nothing else left to be had
Oh, is this your long lost son, and he's never had dear old dad
I forget the insemination and for that I'm supposed to be glad
What a pity you left us so soon to climb your mountain of regret

Can I get a reprieve?
This gene pool dark and deep
Can I beg a release?
Can I volunteer amputee?
From the moment I fell
I called on DNA
Why such betrayal?
Oh I gotta set sail

Oh real bright light shining as you're trying to breathe in thin air
Cannot forget you're hiding collected wounds left unhealed
When every thought you're thinking sinks you darker than the new moon sky
The faraway lights rising in the whites of your eyes

Now father you're dead and gone and I'm finally free to be me
Thanks for all your dark gifts for which I've got no sympathy
I'm living in a walled-up place in the bounds of fifth symphony
Thanks for this and thanks for that, I gotta let go, learn to see legacy

Can I get a reprieve?
This gene pool don't hurt me
Can I beg a release?
Can I volunteer amputee?
From the moment I fell
I called on DNA
Why such betrayal
Oh I gotta set sail
