Song Interpretation
Father equals God. Son equals mankind. The theme is how mankind takes God (more specifically, organized religion), and uses it for his own empowerment. The Man is “twisting”, because mankind has twisted the message of God.

Originally, the song ranged from a take on Religion, children, lost souls, and trapped environments. Early versions, interestingly, borrowed from The Beatles Glass Onion (“The Beatles” aka the White Album), in referencing back to other DMB songs.
