lyrics

You are the man of contradiction
though you're unwilling to concede
how do I know of this condition
guess I got too much time to think

Im in two minds
cant bear to waver
its in my side
thoughts of every flavour

You say son, don't you ever trust your father
but know you can confide in me
you say son don't you break that family unit now
though I broke this one into three

He's a man borne of the congregation
with only distain for piety
say's theres nothing worse than the judgemental
but that never stopped opinions of me

Oh can you see
these fading family sigils
and I know I could be
burning all my bridges

You say son, don't you ever trust your father
but know you can confide in me
you say son don't you break that family unit now
though I broke this one into three

Oh I didn't think things could get any better,
but now I believe theres gotta be a change in the weather
as I get further, further and further
I get further, further and further

You are the man of contradiction
but i fear its hereditary
looking at all your misgivings
I see so much of that in me
You are the man of contradiction
and I fear its hereditary
though I may be so fruitless
this apple didn't fall far from the tree

You say son, don't you ever trust your father
but know you can confide in me
you say son don't you break that family unit now
though I broke this one into three
