Runs In The Family Lyrics

My friend has problems with winter & autumn.
They give him prescriptions, they shine bright lights on him.
They say it's genetic, they say he can't help it, they say you can catch it - but sometimes you're born with it.
My friend has plight, he gets shakes in the night & they say that there's no way that they could have caught it in time takes its toll on him.
It is traditional.
It is inherited.
All day I've been wondering what is inside of me, who can I blame for it?
I say it runs in the family

This family that carries me to such great lengths to open my legs up to anyone who'll have me. It runs in the family, I come by it honestly, do what you want cuz who knows it might fill me up
me up x8
fill me up
me up x7

My friend's depressed she's a wreck, she's a mess.
They've done all sorts of tests & they guess it has something to do with her grandmother's grandfather's grandmother civil-war soldiers who probably infected her.
My friend has maladies, shrickets, and allergies that she dates back to the 17th century.
Somehow she manages (breath) in her misery.
Strips in the city and shares all her best tricks with me, well, Im well, well, I mean Im in hell, Well,I still have my health at least thats what they tell me.
If wellness is this what in hells name is sickness?
But business is business and business runs in the family.

We tend to bruise easily.
Bad in the blood.
I'm telling you cuz I just want you to know me - know me & my family.
We're wonderful folks, but don't get to close to me cuz you might knock me up
me up x8
knock me up
me up x7

Mary have mercy now look what I've done but don't blame me because I can't help where I come from and
running is something that we've always done well & mostly I can't even tell what I'm running from.
Run from their pity, from responsibility.
Run from the country & run from the city-
I can run from the law, I can run from myself.
I can run from my life, I can run into debt.
I can run from it all, I can run til I'm gone.
I can run for the office & run for my cause.
I can run using every last ounce of energy.
I cannot, I cannot, I cannot run from my family.

They're hiding inside of me.
Corpses on ice. Come in if you like but
just don't tell my family.
They'll never forgive me.
They'd say that I'm crazy.
But they would say anything if it would shut me up......Shut me up.....Shut me up
me up x8
Shut me up
me up x7
