one bird, one stone. one father, one son. patriarchy like a toll. you have to get out. when you're tired, must be stoned. if you're hyper than you're high. the little bit of joy that you feel knowing you've taken his only son. less interest creates power. a number one.

    General Comment"This song is the meanest jab I’ve taken at my dad. It feels so good to know that he won’t ever get to see me succeed. He won’t get to be proud of me. It feels good getting high and forgetting that he ever fucking existed. It feels so good knowing that I never took a penny from him after I moved out.
    I was really heavy in high school. Eventually, I decided to stop eating five times my weight in food every day. When I started slimming down, he and my stepmom accused me of being on speed. They didn’t understand self-improvement.
    One time he found me reading On The Road and he was like, 'Where the fuck did you get that? Kerouac was a fag and if you read that, he’ll make you a fag, too!' And I just thought to myself, 'My god, you are a dumb man.' At sixteen I decided that was the stupidest thing I’d ever heard. And that was a defining moment in my memory of him. That’s the character that’s getting written about. Just a really soulless son of a bitch."
