"Answer"

With a vaguely sunny "Lucy in the Sky With Diamonds" vibe and a sung chorus, this song at first seems like another of the album's many unlikely love songs before transforming into a middle finger for Tyler's absentee father, whom he calls a mere "sperm donor." But the next verses group his father with his dead grandmother and an ex — all people won't "answer" if he were to call them. The effect isn't quite heart-breaking — Tyler's nonstop pity party is familiar ground — but it still cuts deep.
