      got me fearing life Colleek are you paiyrng for me See I got demons in my past So I got daughters on the way If the prophecy's correct Then the child should have to pay For the sins of a father So I barter my tomorrows Against my yesterdays In hopes that she'll be OK And when I'm no longer here To shade her face from the glare I'll give her my share of Carol's Daughter and a new beach chair YES. Beach Chair'
