Grab my face
As hard as it's funny to you
While I pretend
I'm your real dad

"How is Anne's cough today, Ms. Sheryl?"
I pretend to ask
A daughter who I bug
And can only stand to be around me for about thirty seconds
But whose picture I wear
In a pin inside my coat

"So, who is this picture?"
"That's you, Anne"
"You're not coming to my birthday"
"Oh, I know"

    General CommentI think it's the whole idea of the hypocritical suburban father who truly has no love for his child, but lives under the facade that he actually cares for her [asking about his daughter's health, the picture of her in his coat] because he doesn't know how else to act - society has dictated this image of fathers for him to live through.
