lyrics

My Dad lives up in Fingal Bay
My soul lives down in Glebe
My heart is lost somewhere within a torrid angry scream

Betraying locks of auburn hair
He strayed beyond the pale
My mother purged him long ago
But I can't forget his wail

But when's there time to forgive him?
When can I let forget?
And when's the time to beat the shit
Out of my lost and lonely lovely lovelorn Dad?

My strands of memory by the sea
Out there he's riding waves
I wish I were there dangling legs
Beside him as he strayed

Perhaps I could've headed off
That possibility
Or strangled her, that evil witch
No questions, vengefully

But I can't I can't
Forget forgive
I'm tortured up inside
I want to be the ship that shifts on
My own tossed turning tide

But when's there time to forgive him?
When can I let forget?
And when's the time to beat the shit
Out of my lost and lonely lovely lovelorn Dad?
