lyrics

FATHER

(v1)
You're the man, who had a plan, that went awry, because in your eyes
you passed the torch to who you brought forth and paved his own way;
Turn your back as we grow old, I've never felt a colder shoulder,
I've stoked the fires of your empire, now i'll burn it to the ground and watch it smolder...

(p1)
[DON'T ENTRUST!] your aspirations unto me,
only call me your failure;
all your childhood fantasies, recovered in rust but,
I refuse to choke as you shake of the dust!

(c)
Choose the trail of broken dreams, or walk the road unknown;
I'd rather tread in my own shoes, and down that path alone.
As I stand, as my own man before you today;
It's not your life, and hence my strife to find my own identity...

(v2)
Bestow your son, to be outdone, to your extremes of antique schemes,
with ill regard, and so discard the talents at play;
You wonder why, at night we cry? You throw your hands up to the sky;
Lost in your own reverie you wash it all away with turbid ending...

(p2)
[PLANT THE SEEDS!] of selfish deeds, which blossomed into entropy,
all you did was germinate rebellion;
created in the likeness of, but not a clone, and lack thereof,
your ambitions you've never chased, and that is why I face to...

(c)
Choose the trail of broken dreams, or walk the road unknown;
I'd rather tread in my own shoes, and down that path alone.
As I stand, as my own man before you today;
It's not your life, and hence my strife to find my own identity...

Evil Engine Chicago, Illinois

Kryssie "Crisis" Ridolfi (of DEADMANSWAKE) has teamed up with Mike Skull, Jamie Booth, and Colin Holmes to bring you a myriad of punk reminiscent of the early California "skate punk" sound; from the "Suffer era" of bad Religion to more contemporary first wave and Oi! bands in the likes of Cocksparrer, Slaughter and the Dogs and Stiff Little Fingers, with a metal edge of Motörhead and Anthrax. ... more
