    Twenty-One

    Daddy can you tell us
    Why you stay out late at night?
    Who will feed your children
    As addiction controls your life?

    Daddy did you love us
    When your children you deny?
    Your footsteps have grown silent
    Under a dirty, bitter sky

    Daddy can you hear us?
    For once you were beguiled
    Understanding comes with a high price
    No reprieve for the fatherless child

    Daddy did they tell you
    What you sow you must also reap?
    I softly call your name
    As I kneel at your grave to weep

    Daddy are you happy now?
    Did the devil have his fun?
    Twenty by the hand of fate
    But the house holds twenty-one
