"Son Of A Prophet" as written by and Matthew Pryor....
All your hangers on
Watch with anxious eyes
Watch your mouth to speak
Words mystic and wise

Can you explain away
Everything that I know to be true?
Will you flinch if I criticize anything about you
Anything about you?

Wash your nervous hands
Speak and only lie
Dismiss distances
Between you and I

Can you explain away
Everything that I know to be true?
Will you flinch if I criticize anything about you
Anything about you, anything about you?

Preacher's only son
Wise man's only tie
Scorned by anyone
With an evil eye
