"Caro Padre" as written by and Thomas Ogden Christopher Daniel Pennells....
I arrived on time
into my mother's arms with a name I didn't choose.
I was blinded by the white of the hospital and in that moment I was pure and absolute.
Little did I know the moment died when it was young
When my father taught me half of right and wrong.
He washed his hands of trust and left us penniless
Before my brain had chance to learn his foreign tongue.

Even though I feel like I'm alright, part of me is missing when I close my eyes.
It's clear that you shine through me in every mistake that can't be undone.
And as I'm getting older, it's clear what I've become.

I am my father's son
I am my father's son
It's clear what I've become
I am my father's son

I do more than just share your name,
I can feel your blood running through my veins
Because the lying, the cheating, the stealing, oh, it's transferred through.
To me,
From you.

Even though I feel like I'm alright, part of me is missing when I close my eyes.
It's clear that you shine through me in every mistake that can't be undone.
And as I'm getting older, oh, it's clear what I've become.

I am my father's son
I am my father's son
It's clear what I've become
I am my father's son

All of the months and the years that have gone by,
You never once could find the time to tell me why.
In all of the months and the years that we've gone through, I tried my best to be myself
But ended up turning into you.

My father's son, my father's son...
It's clear what I've become, because I am my father's son...
It's clear what I've become...

I am my father's son
