The dining room fell silent
I can't believe what I just said
I just told my dad he's full of it
And I watched his face turn red
And I should've said "I'm sorry"
But I matched him shout for shout
I can still hear that screen door slammin'
The night I called him out

He said "Son, it's gonna hurt me more than it hurts you"
But somehow I couldn't help but have my doubt
'Cause I'd seen my older brothers crawl back in the house
Each time they called the old man out

Fist to fist and eye to eye
