You're my father
I obey you
I want you to be my father
I want you to be my father
You know what i am
You know what i am
I want you to kill me
I'm weak:
Take what's mine
Make me feel good
Make me feel soft
Come into my room
Put your hands on my throat
Now choke me
We'll die
Make me nothing
Make me nothing
Be my father
Be my father
Think for me
Make it right
Think for me
Make it right
Put your hands on my throat
Choke me
We'll ride

    General CommentI wouldn't have anything to say about this song except I read an interview where Michael lays it all out: It's inspired, apparently, by psychologist/inspiration for "The Hounds of Love" Wilhelm Reich's 'The Mass Psychology of Fascism,' which posits that people are drawn to fascism because it's structured like a family. Having read this, Michael then had a dream in which Ronald Reagan was his father and had sex with him. Then, naturally, he wrote a song about it.
