Daddy's Speeding

Album: Dog Man Star (1994)
  • Whiplash caught the silver son
    Took the film to No. I
    Crashed the car and left us here
    Broken glass for teenage boys trapped in steel and celluloid
    Crashed the car and left us here.
    And daddy burned a million eyes
    Dared the dogs to criticize
    He crashed the car and I was born

    And daddy turned a million heads
    Took the teenage dream to bed
    He crashed the car and left us here

    With dreams of gasoline drying our eyes
    Green fields of destiny high in the sky
    But oh can you see him?
    Oh Daddy's speeding

    Whiplash caught the silver son
    Killed the sad American
    Crashed the car and left us here

    And sorrow turns his eyes to mine
    Come with me now it's your time
    Let's crash the car and I'll be born

    And sorrow breaks the silent day
    Takes the teenage boys away
    They crash the cars and leave us here

    With dreams of gasoline drying our eyes
    Green fields and death machines high in the sky

    But oh can you see him?
    Oh, when Daddy's speeding Writer/s: BRETT ANDERSON, BERNARD BUTLER
