When Hell Comes Home (4:29)

(Mike Bruce / Alice Cooper / Bob Ezrin)

Daddy wants to take me for a ride
Daddy likes to drink when Daddy drives
He's poundin' on my door
He wants to come inside
Yeah... Daddy wants to take me for a ride

That's just the way it is, when I'm left alone
Yeah, that's when hell comes home

Mommy says that everything is fine
Mommy hides her bruises all the time
She always makes excuses
But I know that she is lying
Mommy says that everything is fine

That's just the way it is
He's evil to the bone
Mommy says that everything is fine

That's just the way it is
When we're left alone
'Cause that's when hell comes home

I hear those bootsteps on the stairs
Mom's bleedin' out or maybe she don't care
We live in darkness and despair
I'm just so tired of being scared

Daddy's gonna get a big surprise
I'll put one right between his eyes
And in his blood
I'll write his last goodbyes
Yeah, Daddy's gonna get a big surprise

That just the way it is
He'll be deader then a stone
That's just the way it is
He'll leave us both alone
That's just the way it is
When hell comes home
Home....
