Screamer

I knew my father like the back of his hand
more father than I needed to understand
I was brought up in the world to suppress my scream
I didn't realize it could spoil all my dreams

If all I've got is one last dream
then I'm not gonna beg if you know what I mean

'cause now I'm a screamer
now I'm a screamer

I knew my father like a military child
marching to another rhythm single file
I was brought up in the world to hide my pride
and took it undercover until time was on my side

If all I've got is one last dream
then I'm not gonna beg if you know what I mean

'cause now I'm a screamer
now I'm a screamer

I knew my father like a west bound train
I curled up in a cloud form and prayed for rain
I was brought up in the world to suppress my rage
I didn't realize I could die in that cage

If all I've got is one last dream
then I'm not gonna beg you better listen to me

'cause now I'm a screamer
now I'm a screamer
