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 CommentI think this song is about the singer having his fate already in place because of his father. Maybe figuring he is going to follow his father's footsteps down whatever path that may be. Something probably dark.

    While the runner is a person who is going to go far in life. Maybe a friend or someone he loves. Regardless, he figures this person will be going places in life and that he will merely be watching them while he stays behind.

    Just my theory. Awesome song, just as it is an awesome album.
