Everything Will Be Alright in the End track listing
"Foolish Father"
"The Waste Land"

"Foolish Father" is the tenth track on Everything Will Be Alright in the End.


According to fans who attended focus groups prior to the album's release, the line "hell or high water" was in consideration in place of the line "You are his daughter." [1] [2] In December of 2017, an early version of the song was leaked, along with the rest of the album. This version has slight lyrical differences ("You are his daughter" was "You are his dear one") and the song's outro is missing. Rivers Cuomo can be heard whispering the words "except you die" at the end of the song (approximately 4 minutes, 11 seconds) [3].



Simple love songs
Drenched in blood songs
Coming out all wrong songs

Hesitate to throw your stones
When criminals are victims
Looking back into our past
There's no cause for these symptoms now

Forgive your foolish father
He did the best that he could do
You are his daughter
And he'd do anything for you

Think of how destroyed he feels
Walking to his grave plot
Knowing that the one he loves
Hates him with all of her heart

These nucleotides are paired up in a strand
How comical this stuff that makes a man

Everything Will Be Alright in the End
