lyrics

You gave me a pair of cleats when I asked for
a pair of dancing shoes birthday age four.
You smiled as you promised a pitcher I'd be
for the school team like you and your father before.

You made me your little sweet pitcher,
cause you thought that the world could use more of those.
But I longed for the shoes of a dancer,
as you told me that only a fool wears those clothes.

My hands became callused like leather
familiar like sweat on your brow
Just like you old bastard
Can’t you run a little faster?
with that rugged behavior
Spit and swear and savor

You made me your little sweet pitcher,
cause you thought that the world could use more of those.
But I longed for my own self-approval,
while your life taught me only a fool wears those clothes.

Now I dress in patterns I defined
Still expectations with me all the time
Wisdom wears not just a robe of white
I am my father and that is alright

Nor evil black burly bands
nor people as simple as they seem

I am my father
