FATHERS & SONS

Side 2, Track 4. “Fathers & Sons.”

[DAVE & BRENT (Edgar & Fool)]
LET ME DRINK TONIGHT
DON’T BOTHER ME
YOU ALL CAN GO AWAY
AND JUST THE BOTTLE CAN STAY
LA DA DA DA DA
DA DA DA DA
DA DA DA DA DA DA DA DA

I’M NEVER REALLY HAPPY
AND I’M NEVER REALLY SAD
BUT I’M A PRETTY BAD LOVER
AND I’D PROBABLY BE A DEADBEAT DAD

[DAVE]
MY SON MY SON
GET AWAY FROM ME
STRIKE OUT ON YOUR OWN
PACK YOUR BAGS UP AND FLEE
AND NEVER LOOK BACK
AT YOUR ROTTEN POP
DRINKING IN THE BATHROOM
OF AN ICE CREAM SHOP

[BRENT (Fool/Pusher)]
MY DAD MY DAD
I’M OUTTA HERE
I’LL FINISH MY DRINK
AND THEN I’LL DISAPPEAR
I'M GONNA PLAY CELLO
IN A ROCK’N’ROLL BAND
MAKE MONEY ON THE SIDE
FROM MY HEROIN STAND

AND IF ANYONE PUSHES ME
I’M GONNA PUSH THEM BACK
AND IF ANYONE PUSHES ME
I’M GONNA PUSH THEM BACK

[DAVE & BRENT]
LA DA DA DA DA
DA DA DA DA
DA DA DA DA DA DA DA DA

LA DA DA DA DA
DA DA DA DA
DA DA DA DA DA DA DA DA

[BRITTAIN & GELSEY (Rose & Pearl)]
THERE’S A MAN ON THE PLATFORM
SCREAMING ABOUT THE APOCALYPSE
SCREAMING ABOUT THE DAY OF REVELATION
THE DAY OF REVELATION IS AT HAND

REVEAL IT TO ME
REVEAL ME EVERYTHING
REVEAL IT TO ME PLEASE RIGHT NOW

[DAVE & BRENT]
I’M NEVER REALLY HAPPY
AND I’M NEVER REALLY SAD
BUT I’M A PRETTY BAD LOVER
AND I’D PROBABLY BE A DEADBEAT DAD
