5 CHINESE BROTHERS - My Dad's Face Lyrics
Tom meltzerWhen I look in the mirror I see my dad's faceWhere my face used to beThen I realize that he was about my ageWhen he started his own familyThen my radicalism, all my college marxismStarts drifting on out to deep seaWhen I look in the mirror and I see my dad's faceWhere my face used to beWhen I was a kid I used to look at my dadAnd I'd say, this is who I am not.He used bryl-creem, I used hair sprayHe was fat, I was skinnyHe drank beer, I smoked potBut now my feet are disappearing beneath an ocean of beerAnd not so mysteriouslyWhen I look at my face I see in it's placeMy dad's physiognomyI used to look at my friends, they looked fifty years olderSome nights when I'd get too stonedThat's when I believed time was a visible lineWith it's end and beginning both shownNow I know that's not trueBut I've still got an idea pretty much of what I can expectWhen I look in the mirror and I see my dad's mugSitting there right on top of my neckWell, my dad had it rough, he couldn't keep his true loveHe never reached his sought-after perfectionSo as I headed down my own life's roadI headed straight in the other directionNow, when I turn around, he's not so far awayAnd we're on the same road, I can seeWhen I look in the mirror and I see my dad's faceWhere my face used to be
