[edit] Lyrics

I'm the son of an engineer
I'm the son of an engineer
And he's gambled all he's made
On every life he saves
Can't let the devil by his side

I'm the son of a driving rain
I'm the son of a driving rain
And it thunders when it pours
I'll hide behind his doors
And when its safe unlock the doors and pray

I'm the son of a great pretender
I'm the son of a great pretender
Pretending life's not real
Cause I've got a heart of steel
Pretending home is closer than it feels

I don't own the clothes I'm wearing
And I'll go anywhere
There's just one thing I always must remember
I will always be the son of an engineer

The Devil rides in a black car
Yeah the Devil rides in a black car
And after I have paid all the moves I've made
Walked for every inch within the mile

I'm the son of an engineer
I'm the son of an engineer
Ooohhhh hooo!
