lyrics

My father, the hunter, found god in his guns.

He'll take my place when he is older. Looking back on what he's done he finds himself the only shoulder I can cry "wolf" on.

Becoming a compromise because of a promise not to compromise becoming a compromise. His coming to terms determines his demise. A demon for every disguise.

Four eyes foresee, for me, this foreword: Never be afraid of war.

It's out of his hands and into my head how I'm supposed to be a man. It's out of my hands. I'm out of my mind to find the time to be everything you knew I wouldn't.

My father, the hunter, found god in his guns and he's wanted for dead pride. He's hunted. He's nothing like me even though I'm like him.

I am not my father's innocent son.
