Family Name

This song is by Sandra McCracken and appears on the album Gypsy Flat Road (2001).

Change the set, change the names
Protect the innocent with a clean shave
You don't know what to keep and what to kill
You think you've walked away but you're standing still

Just like your father,
Just like your mother,
Just like your family name.

Three bags full, black sheep with closed eyes
Just enough cheap grace to cover your hide,
Freedom from the bottle leaves regret in your home
What you can not forgive, now holds you close.

So who are you now, when you are alone
Will you recognize it when you're old?
You stare it in the face, then forget what you've seen
You give it to your sons, it's tangled in their dreams.

Just like their father
Just like their mother
Just like your father
Just like your mother
Just like their family name...
