"Father Figure" as written by Richard Michael Patrick, Dean Deleo and Robert Emile Deleo....
Cold is your heart
When you're heart has been broken
Love is what's lost
When the loss leads to loathing
Pain's what you've got
When you've got
Got going
There is your food
And your food's
Got you choking

[Bridge]
Touch a good game
'Cause the rules are the same
I can't deny that we'll miss him
Now that you've killed
It's a much bigger pill
'Cause larger words are missing

[Chorus]
Say what you will
Where's your father figure?
Say what you will
Where's your father figure
Now?

Spun is your head
And your head is unfolding
Crushed is your soul
And your soul is unloading
Torn are your thoughts
And your thoughts
Make life hopeful
Gone is the cost
And the cost
Is un-hopeful

[Bridge]

[Chorus]

Say what you will
Where's your father figure?
Say what you will
Where's your father figure?
Say what you will
Where's your father figure?
Say what you will
Where's your father figure?

    General CommentDon't know what it's about, but it rocks brutally. No doubt the most Filter-ish song on the album, and Richard sounds incredible on it.

    General CommentIt's a classic Filter style anti-religion song, like Dose, or Under, or the STP song Naked Sunday. I hope their next album has a few more dark sounding songs like this.

    General CommentThese song can be interpreted as two different meanings

    1. As he says, this is a song about all the people being hypnotized by common religions, following role models and rules that only leads to a confusion noticed but ignored by everyone of them. They get "painful" "soul crushed" "mind twisted" "head spun" "heart cold" when these people recognize that their God has dissapointed them after blindly following him. The empty food of the last supper and eucharist got them choking. All the priests and religious people say what you will because there is no father figure!
    2. This song could also be interpreted as child's abuse/domestic violence. Talks about a hopeless child or woman who is being abused or violently treated and who is supposed to follow father figure's rules
    "Now that you kill it's a much bigger pill, There's a larger world you're missing"-->the father figure has an unreasonable and crazy behavior who is being under drugs or medications and lives inside of a small ignorant world under these effects.

    anyway, I asked myself where is my father figure..... There is none!

    General Commenti forgot to say.....This is a crazy work made by Army of anyone....Im so glad Deleo's brothers found Richard Patrick to interpret their songs...My respects to Scott Weiland, as he is one of my favourite singers but I think that Richard Patrick is doing a much better work than what Scott Weiland is doing at Velver Revolver.
