as someone who seems to be sorely disappointing one side of her family and then is just tormented by the other side, it's as if this song wraps both sides of that into one little narrative. therefore, this song hits home.

father's eyes
by the blank theory


you tried to control everything
you tried to live through me
you tied my hands with your condescension
i was always walking on glass
you kept me locked in the past
everything i did was to get your attention

i'll always let you down
yeah but i don't care
you'll never understand
i wasted all the time in the world in your eyes
father's eyes

you twist my thoughts with your ways
you let my feeling decay
and now i'm afraid of the world around me
don't let me think for myself
you wish i was somebody else
everything i did was for you
what about me

i'll always let you down
yeah but i don't care
you'll never understand
i wasted all the time in the world in your eyes
you'll never understand
i'll withstand the pain inside
a father's eyes

all the things you broke
all the things you took away
all the things you lost
all the promises you made
never giving in
always feeling betrayed
i won't let you out of my head


i'll always let you down
yeah but i don't care
you'll never understand
i wasted all the time in the world in your eyes
i'll always let you down
yeah but i don't care
you'll never understand
i wasted all the time in the world in your eyes
father's eyes
