"Like Father, Like Son" as written by Tyler Smith, Anthony Pizzuti, Zack Hansen, Justin Salinas, Nick Urlacher and Dusty Riach....
If you're not my blood, you are my bones.
The only one I've ever known.

You showed me how to be a man.
You don't know what you mean to me.
So many secrets run through me.

Don't fuck with family!
Don't fuck with family!

I've tried to be a better man
For you will see that I've grown.

I know we've both made mistakes but you could never fail me.
In my heart you're the one who's molded me to be a man who could make you proud.
Do you have regrets do you ever look back?
Do you have regrets, don't look back.

The one I turn to.
Nobody sees me as you do.
You're always there.

You taught me all I know (you better me I know)
You taught me all I know (you better me I know)
I'm sorry for the times I made you sad
I just want you to know that.

I know we've both made mistakes but you could never fail me.
In my heart you're the one who's molded me
To be a man who could make you proud.
Do you have regrets do you ever look back?
Do you have regrets, don't look back.
(Don't hold back, don't hold back!)

Many nights I laid awake trying to think of a way to say
But the words just don't seem to escape.
They get trapped at the start but the feelings won't fade.
So here's a song to say I love you.

This is the one I hope will let you know
I don't need blood but I need bones. You are my home.

I know we've both made mistakes but you could never fail me.
In my heart you're the one who's molded me to be a man who could make you proud.
Do you have regrets do you ever look back?
Do you have regrets, don't look back.

I don't need blood! I need bones!

    General Comment"Like Father Like Son" is by far the most personal song I've ever written. It's also one of the heaviest and fastest songs TWA have ever written. I really wanted to write a song about my life growing up with my father. It talks about how despite him not being my biological father, it doesn't matter to me. When I was younger, I was so confused not knowing why my "real" father wasn't around. But as I grew older, I understood that the only father I'd ever known is as real as anyone could ever be. It's definitely one of the band favorites on the album."
