Sins of the Son

from Resurrect the Insurgence by Katagory V



I’m afraid I don’t remember how it happened,
But I do recall the end result.
One blurry, chemically-induced romantic night
Had shaped our future. It’s all my fault.
How could I bring a life into this world
When mine had only just begun?

When the sins of the father
May one day be the sins of the son,
Could our children’s children ever show us how
The struggle of life is won?

Ten years have passed, and I can not tell you his first word,
Who’s his hero, or his best friend’s name,
But I can tell you what I had to drink last night
When I was watching the football game.
I hope he won’t grow up to be like me,
‘Cause it’s too late for me to change.

Repeat Chorus I

Solo—K. Krompel

Another decade, and my boy has one of his own,
But he doesn’t even have a job.
To work would take away from all the fun he has
Down at the tavern. When will it stop?
He has become so irresponsible.
I wonder where he gets it from.

And the sins of the father
Have now become the sins of the son.
Let’s hope that our children’s children choose
To never be what we have become…
What we have become…
When will it end?
