Ive got a plan, where we give up everything we ever held dear to us
Just to make a point that once we're gone theres nothing left to give

What makes a man so resiliant to resist others aid
If our lives have a deeper meaning tell me have I been meaning all I've done

Well what is the right way anyway? Tell me is there a right way anyway?

So they've conjured the rules and dictated how things should be
but the most important things learned are the ones that our fathers have taught us:
Don't take advantage of the weak and helpless,
Find a way to carry on,
Find a way to love and let go

But me and my father, we talked about life and death
If my life has another meaning to what Ive done I retract it
Oh my god, I feel so alone in this
But if I only knew it better, Id know that everyones been there before

Oh and this light bestowed upon us all, feels more like a burden to heavy to carry
So I toss and turn in the saddest of dances only to find no, not one resolution

only time will heal what I've cursed
But your singing this song to me,
and somehow it's bringing peace
and showing me there's so much more to life than this

So me and my father talked about life and death
If there has been a deeper meaning, then ive been meaning to find it all along
Oh my god, I feel so alone in this
But if I only knew it better I'd know I my had taught me this before

Father, what have you taught me?
