Eye of the free, but it is really more than anything.


Let me tell you a story
Let me shovel some dirt
Let me tell you a story
And it's gonna hurt
It's about your mamma
This song's about your mamma
And your poppa, too
You're gonna learn something
You don't wanna know
I'm sorry, son
But it's time for you to burn/learn

Let me tell you a story
About the time you were born
When God made me a cuckold
When God made me his bitch
When God gave you to this world
That's when God made us all rich
'Cause you're God's only son
You're God's only son
You're God's only son
You're God's only son

(God's only son...)

I should have told you
Before you murdered that man
Maybe I should have told you
After you raped that girl (you animal)
If you knew
That you already had won
If you knew you had
Won redemption
But now you're damned
I'm sorry
I called God up
I asked his advice
Maybe I shouldn't have beat you so much
When you were such a little brat
But you know how hard it is when everybody's laughing at me
(oh my God, it was such a pain raising you)
When they say you're not my kid
When they say you're better than me
(so much stigma about being a single father, they hate you)
When they talk about how much better you are
You're fucking perfect
(it was always like that)

Hang on, wait
You know what, I'm sorry
Because I shouldn't be talking about how I feel
Because this song's about you
Because it's always about you
Because you're God's only son
You're God's only son
You're God's only son
You're God's only son
You're God's only son
Never have fun when you're God's only son
Never have fun 'cause you don't go the sun
