My Oedipus Complex - Kid Rock

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 f_ck 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 f_ck you man you ain't sh_t 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 f_ckin 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
