5 Chinese Brothers - My Dad's Face Lyrics

Font:      
Align:    
  • Tom meltzer
  • When I look in the mirror I see my dads face
  • Where my face used to be
  • Then I realize that he was about my age
  • When he started his own family
  • Then my radicalism, all my college marxism
  • Starts drifting on out to deep sea
  • When I look in the mirror and I see my dads face
  • Where my face used to be
  • When I was a kid I used to look at my dad
  • And Id say, this is who I am not.
  • He used bryl-creem, I used hair spray
  • He was fat, I was skinny
  • He drank beer, I smoked pot
  • But now my feet are disappearing beneath an ocean of beer
  • And not so mysteriously
  • When I look at my face I see in its place
  • My dads physiognomy
  • I used to look at my friends, they looked fifty years older
  • Some nights when Id get too stoned
  • Thats when I believed time was a visible line
  • With its end and beginning both shown
  • Now I know thats not true
  • But Ive still got an idea pretty much of what I can expect
  • When I look in the mirror and I see my dads mug
  • Sitting there right on top of my neck
  • Well, my dad had it rough, he couldnt keep his true love
  • He never reached his sought-after perfection
  • So as I headed down my own lifes road
  • I headed straight in the other direction
  • Now, when I turn around, hes not so far away
  • And were on the same road, I can see
  • When I look in the mirror and I see my dads face
  • Where my face used to be
