The Father's Song

That's another day gone by, son, close your eyes
For the moon is chasing clouds across the skies
Got to sleep and have no fear, son
For your mam and dad are near, son

And the giant is just a shadow on the wall
Go to sleep and when you wake it will be light
There's no need to fear the darkness of the night
It's not like the dark you find, son

In the depths of some men's minds, son
That defies the daily coming of the dawn
Stop crying now, let daddy dry your tears
There's no bogeyman to get you, never fear

There's no ogres, wicked witches
Only greedy sons-of-bitches
Who are waiting to exploit your life away
Lie easy in your bed and grow up strong

You'll be needing all your strength before too long
For you'll soon be on your way, son
Fighting battles every day, son
With an enemy who thinks he owns the world

Don't you let 'em buy you out or break your pride
Don't you let yourself be used then cast aside
If you listen to their lying
They will con you into dying

You won't even know that you were once alive
No more talking now it's time to go to sleep
There are answers to your questions but they'll keep
Go on asking while you grow, son

Go on asking till you know, son
And then send the answers ringing through the world
