die before dying (“isn’t something wrong with me?”)

die before dying ("isn't something wrong with me?")


I've got this feeling	this old familiar feeling
it's my reality		the way that things will always be
I've tried to fix it	I've tried to compensate
yet I shall defend it	until my dying day
It is my center		my sacred idol
it's what I worship	it's the title of my bible
isn't something wrong with me? isn't something wrong with me? 
isn't something wrong with me?I know there's just got to be

This is my good excuse	for why I'm like this
this it what justifies	all of my limitations
this is the trunk 	that supports all my branches
it's my identity	my questions and my answers
this is my language	this is my culture
this is my heritage	my religion and my only cure
 
isn't something wrong with me? isn't something wrong with me? 
isn't something wrong with me?I know there's just got to be

cause I'm not the one that they really wanted
I'm just a new son to replace the one they lost
or I'm the wrong color, wrong size or wrong shape
I'm sure I'm wrong, but it could be in so many ways
 
isn't something wrong with me? isn't something wrong with me? 
isn't something wrong with me?is this body-mind who I really am
or is this "me" just a pattern of conversation
should I be personally attached to my life or to my self
and how should I try to become the right somebody else
 
isn't something wrong with me? the sage dies before dyingI've got this feeling	this old familiar feeling
it's my reality		the way that things will always be
I've tried to fix it	I've tried to compensate
yet I shall defend it	until my dying day
It is my center		my sacred idol
it's what I worship	it's the title of my bible
 
isn't something wrong with me? the sage dies before dying
