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 wanted
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 wanted
Can I rise above the flood?
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 wanted
Can I rise above the flood?
Will it wash out in the water
Or is it always in the blood?

Is it always in the blood?
