Lyrics: Dear Ol'Dad

Recorded at: London Bridge Studio, Seattle (Feb - June 1992)

Come now and listen babe
I gotta reason why I behave
Like a child with a light in eyes
Running naked on a cold winter night
I am like a pigeon that is spreading
itís wings to fly away to better things
Like a hammer that has made
a dent in every little single cent youíve spent
Said oh God youíve got to help me a little bit
Youíve got to have a relief file for me
Now I know Iím always right
thatís a thought that never even crossed my mind
Donít touch me there Iíve gotta be pure
So smack that hand, and read this verse
So I wrecked your life, what the heck
My new found faith will pay by check
This lifeís took a toll on my soul
So this is me and thatís my song
And I guess that you can see that we donít get along
Iíve shut the doors on what we had
so now she can sleep with her dear olí dad
My eyes are dry and my hands are clean
and I canít believe all the things Iíve seen
Oh my God

from the "Dear Ol'dad" video

"... the only preaching the band does is against preaching, particularly on Dear Ol' Dad, a biting love letter from Hoon to an acquaintance who iced him after she found the Lord..."
