I own my father’s books
They’re all that I ever took
From him when he died
But I don’t think he’ll mind now

I fought my father’s wars
But I can’t figure out what for
So I think I’ll concede
He don’t care, he’s fast asleep

I’ve done it your way
I’ve loved all your shade
But I think it’s time I go
Instead of living inside yours
I’ll cast my own shadow

I have my mother's teeth
People say that they can see
Her when I turn a smile
Except I’ve been feeling sad a while

I did my parents' drugs
I took them in the name of love
But I like being clean
I like feeling finally seen
