"Foolish Father" as written by and Rivers Cuomo Patrick Stickles....
Simple love songs
Drenched in poisons
I've been out of long

Hesitate to throw your stones
When criminals are victims
Looking back into our past
There's no cause for these symptoms now

Forgive your foolish father
He did the best that he could do
You are his daughter
He'd do anything for you

Think of how destroyed he feels
Walking to his grave plot
Knowing that the one he loves
Hates him with all of her heart

Forgive your foolish father
He did the best that he could do
You are his daughter
He'd do anything for you

Please Remember your dad
Although he's been astray
How comical
The stuff that makes a man

Forgive your foolish father
He did the best that he could do
You are his daughter
He'd do anything for you

Anything for you, anything for you
Anything, anything, anything for you
Anything for you

Everything will be alright in the end
Everything will be alright in the end
Everything will be alright in the end
Everything will be alright in the end

    General Commenti love the song but not the message. my father has been emotionally absent throughout my 20 odd years. i resent him, profoundly. but at least it's deterred me from the idea of ever having children. good god i would just end up being him. im a heartless bastard but everything will be alright in the end.

    General CommentI'm not sure how much I totally agree with these lyrics. I'm pretty sure there are a lot of dads who don't even try to connect/ look after their children properly. But it does bring me hope that as dads, if we try our best, our kids will hopefully look back one day and see that we tried, even though we (pretty much guaranteed) make a lot of mistakes along the way!

    General CommentIs it just me or does parts of the tune have a om shanti/hare Krishna/mantra feel to it? I can't put my finger on it , but it sounds like it incorporates some element.
