My Oedipus Complex

I need somebody won't you help me

I need somebody won't you tell me who I am

I've been livin a lie so long it seems I've lived a life time

If you 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, yeah

My heart turns to stone and I think of this

I need somebody won't you help me

I need somebody won't you tell me who I am

You never loved me, you never held me tight

Instead you shook me like a beast to wake me up at night

You 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 hell's hidden with a grin

Dad take the stand and let the trial begin

You said that oil and water don't mix though it seems cool

Keep with your own and don't fuck up our gene pool

UYoushould'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 you so wise

How could you 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 you

And oh the pain how it hurts

It was always your home and your business that came first

You said a man is as good as his word

But your mind was closed and mine never heard

My visions blurred, thoughts obscured

And with my blinders down I strain from the heard

They say the nut don't fall far from the tree

Look at u then look at me...

You ain't nothin to me you've never been to me

And all you ever gave a damn about was money see

So now fuck you man you ain't shit 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

No 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 ass off and I put myself through 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 but still you resent me so

Son I said I'm sorry and why do you resent me so

I always loved you I always cared for you

Just never wanted you to go through what I've been through

I tried to raise my fuckin family just the best I know

And now I'm hated like the devil and for why I don't know


Alright, get down baby


I need somebody won't you help me

I need somebody won't you tell me who I am

I need somebody please, please help me

I need somebody you must tell me who I am

Hey, hey, hey

Tell me who I am

Hey, hey

Tell me who I am

I am, I am

Tell me who I am, am, am

Tell meeeee

Tell meeeee

A Minute Or So After The Song Is Over -

If it looks good, you'll see it

If it sounds good, you'll hear it

If it's marketed right, you'll buy it

But if it's real, you'll feel it
