lyrics

I wore flannel shirts for my father.
Thought they'd make me be like him.
Even though I didn't want to
he could always draw me in.

Who is the architect?
Who is to say?
Regardless of the fashion
you're a mannequin either way.

I did funny voices for my father
and always tried to make him laugh.
A funny face, and he'd laugh harder
while I'd cut myself in half.

Who is the architect?
Who is to say?
Regardless of the jokes
the routine don't go away.

I cannot help but cry for my father
for he was once a child.
Even though he didn't bother
and was always running wild.

Who is the architect?
Who is to say?
Regardless of the boy
the man gets built anyway.
