my oedipus complex lyrics – kid rock

i need somebody won’t u help me
i need somebody won’t you tell me who i am
i need somebody please please help me
i need somebody u must tell me who i am
i’ve been livin a lie so long it seems i’ve lived a life time
if u could see what i feel it would make your ghetto lood like heaven
and i believe it stems down from my family situation
i never liked my old man
i couldn’t stand to be around him
sometimes i sit all alone just starin at his picture
my heart turns to stone and i think of this

you never loved me you never held me tight
instead u shook me like a beast to wake me up at night
u tried to make me think that your ways were best
when all i was was an outlet for all your stress

life it’s the ultimate sin
a game with no rules that you’re expected to win
my personal h*ll’s hidden with a grin
“dad take the stand and let the trial begin”
u said that oil and water don’t mix though it seems cool
keep with your own and don’t f*ck up our gene pool
u should’ve went to school like your bigger brother
but you played the fool with a different color
runnin’ ship with a whip
i tried to keep up but i kept getting tripped
money made u so wise
how could u look thru my face and not see your own eyes
do as i say and not as i do
but i can’t cuz when i look in the mirror i see u
and oh the pain how it hurts
it was always your home and your business that came first
u said a man is as good as his word
but your mind was closed and mine never herd
they say the nut don’t fall far from the tree
look at u then look at me…

u ain’t nothin to me u’ve never been to me
and all u ever gave a d*mn about was money see
so now f*ck u man you ain’t sh*t to me
and it’s the day that i die of this hate that i’m free
now i know growin up son that it ain’t always been easy
and i know at times i was not always there for you
we never spent much time just talkin or havin a good time
but understand growin up son i never had a dime
so i worked my *ss off and i put myself thru college
and everything i have to this day u know i built it all
oh i wish i could go back and change the years that’s lost between us
i wish i could take back some of the things i said to you
son i said i’m sorry…
son i said i’m sorry but still u resent me so
son i said i’m sorry and why do u resent me so

i always loved u i always cared for u
just never wanted u to go thru what i’ve been thru
i tried to raise my f*ckin family just the best i know
and now i’m hated like the devil and for what i don’t know
