Daddy's Little Defect

Album: Start Static (2001)


  • This song is about a man in a relationship who fears for his girlfriend because she was sexually abused by her father: "So don't don't don't make a sound, your father's around to play with your head, the gift-wrapped guilt-trip kisses left you naked in your bed." He wants to be with this girl as long as he doesn't have to deal with her baggage: "Keep your secrets away from me if you want to be mine." >>
