In the blood

How much of my mother has my mother left in me?

How much of my love will be insane to some degree?

And what about this feeling that I'm never good enough?

Will it wash out in the water? 

Or is it always in the blood?

 

How much of my father am I destined to become?

Will I dim the lights inside me just to satisfy someone?

Will I let this woman kill me, or do away with jealous love?

Will it wash out in the water? 

Or is it always in the blood?

 

I can feel the love I want

I can feel the love I need

But it's never gonna come the way I am

Could I change it if I want it?

Can I rise above the flood?

Will it wash out in the water? 

Or is it always in the blood?

 

How much like my brothers, do my brothers wanna be?

Does a broken home become another broken family?

Or will we be there for each other like nobody ever could?

Will it wash out in the water? 

Or is it always in the blood?

 

I can feel the love I want

I can feel the love I need

But it's never gonna come the way I am

Could I change it if I want it?

Can I rise above the flood?

Will it wash out in the water? 

Or is it always in the blood?
