Paroles de la chanson Runs In The Family par Amanda Palmer

My friend has problems with winter and 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 blight
He gets shakes in the night
And they say that there's no way that they could have caught it
And time takes his toll on him
It is traditional, it is inherited
Predisposition

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 'cause who knows it might
Fill me up
Fill me up
Fill me up...

My friends depressed she's a wreck she's a mess
They've done all sorts of tests
And they guess it has something to do with her
Grandmother's grandfather's grandmother
Civil war soldiers
Who badly infected her


My friend has maladies, rickets and allergies
That she dates back to the 17th century
Somehow she manages - in her misery
Strips in the city and shares all her best tricks with me.

Me ? well, I'm well. well, I mean I'm in hell.
Well, I still have my health--
(at least that's 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 'cause I just want you to know me

Know me and my family
We're wonderful folks,
But don't get to close to me 'cause you might
Knock me up
Knock me up
Knock me up...

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,
And mostly I can't even tell what I'm running from

I run from the pity
From responsibility
Run from the country

And 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 till I'm gone
I can run for the office,
And run for the 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
Help me if you like,
But just don't tell my family
They'd 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...
