Uncovered Deception

Pain of the first degree
Caused by your deceit
You had to lie all this time
You've been so cruel and unkind
This wasn't your choice to make
But it was your big mistake
And now, as the truth has come out
Hate for you has lost all doubt

Did you think you had the right
To keep the truth from me?
Forgiveness is so far away
Now that the story's free
Hate for you has overcome
The love I used to feel
A father's place is in the home
But you belong in hell
How could you?

Despite what you had said
Thoughts ran through my head
That you were doing wrong
Telling me she was gone
She was always here
She was hiding in fear
And you had put her there
Forced her to dispair

Did you think you had the right
To keep the truth from me?
Forgiveness is so far away
Now that the story's free
Hate for you has overcome
The love I used to feel
A father's place is in the home
But you belong in hell
How could you?

LIAR, LIAR
Forced her to dismay
LIAR, LIAR
Forcing me to repay
LIAR, LIAR
You think that you should live
LIAR, LIAR
I'll take what you won't give

Since I have found the lies
And uncovered your disguise
The world can see through you
But that cannot undo
What you have chased away
The love that she always gave
Now she will never return
And you will forever burn

Did you think you had the right
To keep the truth from me?
Forgiveness is so far away
Now that the story's free
Hate for you has overcome
The love I used to feel
A father's place is in the home
But you belong in hell
How could you?
