I see you watching me, your eyes are just like glue.
Stuck like glue to every foolish thing I say and do.
There's a safer distance, still not out of touch.
If Daddy's quiet it probably means he's thinking way too much.
Someday you'll be a man, you'll have a big ole brain.
You won't need it, but you'll try to use it just the same.
It's like any house lonely people roam around.
Wasted empty space, a maze with only one way out.
Nobody ever told me half the things I'm telling you.
Even if they had, I'd have had the same look that you do.
Sometimes you think it and you want to heard it said out loud.
If no one else does, then it's up to you to shout it out.
You'll want to do it all, and you'll believe you can.
When the best that you can do becomes all you can stand,
you'll know you're just a man when you feel all the weight press down.
Next time that you're watching me, remember that's all I am now.
