  • Hey Father
    I want to put you to an end
    Hey Father
    I'm almost over it again

    Hey Father
    You were never my friend
    Hey Father
    I've lost my mind again

    Officer, what will you do?
    Officer, I'll pay you

    I'll pay you to shoot him now
    I will you pay you to take him out
    I will pay you to shoot him now
    I'll pay you to blow his brains out

    Hey Mother
    Did he hurt you again?
    Hey Mother
    I want you in, it's got to end

    Hey Mother
    Swallow your pride, you know it's true
    Hey Mother
    You know he hurt me too

    Officer, will you please?
    I'm begging you on my knees

    I'll pay you to shoot him now
    I will pay you to take him out
    I will pay you to shoot him now
    I will pay you to blow his brains out

    (My sanity's lost now)
    To choke him now
    (The sad times are over)
    To fuck him up
    (I've taken control now)
    To make him drink from the same dried cup

    Hey Father
    I wanna put you to an end
    Hey Father

    I will pay you to shoot him now
    I will you pay you to take him out
    I will pay you to shoot him now
    I will pay you, I will pay you to blow his brains out
    To blow his brains out
