Music and Lyrics by Ben Pagano


Father I love you but you left me so young
A martyr if you will, and as an only son
I lift up my head from the ground where you fall
Oh, Father I will love you, and I hope you like this song
Your Mother, a devil sought revenge above the soil
Lonesomely destructed you left us in turmoil
But as your son I forgive you with a smile
Even though you have left me, hungry in the wild

Singing a song from long ago
Written with the love of a young born son
1993, lights broken and scarred
And he's singing your song, a song from god
On another side a conquest for the gain
Your valor is an angel, and your name remains the same
A man with soft spoken desire for the cry
Oh father, I will love you til' the day I die

"The longer you spend with the music of Ben Pagano the more impossible it becomes to define. The Brooklyn-based art pop project clambers around genres with an artisan’s ease, eclectic yet handily refined all at once."
- Happy Mag

"Pagano’s soulful, funky, and downright beautifully bonkers compositions will hit you like a ton of rainbow-colored bricks"
- Art Ivan Tiny Mix Tapes
