these patterns are born
and patterns repeat
patterns divide and rejoin
and they leave the
past at your feet
so step and be safe
your father is right by your side
he'll take you for all of your money
your health, your kids, and your bride
replace my name with your own,
i'll soon be gone
i'll leave my trespasses at home,
and you leave your own

these patterns are born
and they will repeat
he's there in the sight of yourself in the mirror,
haven't you seen?
and you will deny,
you think your lover won't crack the disguise…
until he comes riding the waves
down her face from out of her eyes
replace my name with your own,
i'll soon be gone
i'll leave my trespasses at home
and you leave your own
