Where were you Peter Lanza? You divorced his mom, you divorced him You ran like a coward- you left him hanging from a string Money in the place of a Father is a terrible thing You moved an hour away The further you moved- the more money it would pay The draw of money was so strong for you The price you will pay is more than money- so true You left your home for a new wife- a new life He wasn’t important- there was too much strife You left him at a time when he needed you most Your absence left him as a ghost Where were you while he was slipping away? You turned your back on him- we NEED to say Mom couldn’t do it alone You walked away- so much indeed for the world to pay From one Father to another- Sir, you have failed The pain for so many will never be curtailed He needed you- a Father- who abandoned his son You turned your back, he grabbed the gun You have failed the ultimate test Now 27 innocents have been put to rest What a world it could have been Had this “Father” not committed the cardinal sin Peter Lanza, the media says you wonder how it all came to be Look into any mirror Peter and you will come to see.
