I got a number on me, I got a number
Won't make it through the high noon sun
I am my father's son
And I am my father's son
His bed is made
I was a hero early in the morning
I ain't no hero in the night

I am my father's son
And I'll build a house inside of you
I'll go in through the mouth
I'll draw three figures on your heart
One of them will be me as a boy
And one of them will be me
One of them will be me, watching you run
Watching you run into the high noon sun
Watching you run farther than guns will go
You are a runner with a stolen voice
And you are a runner
And I am my father's son

I am my father's son
I am my father's son

    General CommentFrom the opening crunchy riffs, it immediately paints the picture of the quasi-anarchic Wild Wild West. The protagonist seems to have a bounty on his head, and this has led to a sort of bipolarity where he must struggle between his innate desire for survival and the traditions of honor and courage that his father instilled in him.
