Dad, I watched you fall
And split your head on the dock
I couldn't bear to see
A lion so meek
In the francis jay memorial wing
So I never came

my family tree is me

angela, sister near, once
Stripper severe
Your husband donnie
Is pure fear
So I stay clear

my family tree is me

mother dear
Your eyes are lost
Gunpowder shot
Gun tossed, there's nothing left to brood
I lost you too

my family tree is me
Now I'm set free

    General CommentMan, I really hate to break it to you like this, but sometimes singers adopt personas in songs that aren't necessarily them.

    Maybe he's doing so here, and Angela is this sister of his imagined narrator...maybe he isn't actually a helicopter pilot, shooting at people with tracer bullets, as he claims to be in Heated Pool and Bar. Come to think of it, I don't think he was a pharmaceutical rep in Abilene or a P.O.W. in Vietnam either. I think he's a storyteller.
