Lyrics
It's only human to want to inhabit every feeling you've got
and more often than not let's take it to the Nth degree
here he goes,
'gimmie ten bucks and a head start'
heres where he goes,
'the puzzle's pullin apart'
and here's the scene:
you're yellin calmly down the street,
'are we family'
or what?

From happy-go-lucky to surly-go-crazy the lot
and more often than not admission to the battles is free
here he goes,
'gimmie ten bucks and a head start'
heres where he goes,
pulling the puzzle apart
and here's the scene
where you whisper down the crookedest street
'are we family'
or what?

are we family when its only if not when
sisters brothers wolf wolf lover
and the boy who stamped too many ants?
are we family?

Its only human to want to inherit every feeling you've got
and like it or not let's take it to the Nth degree
here we go,
give us ten bucks and a head start
here's where we go
the puzzle's pulling apart
and here's the scene:
your horse is going the wrong way up the street
are we family?
or what

are we family when its not if but when
taking care of eachother one bullet to another
when its all 'If a song can't save us then nothing can'
are we family?
or what

to one another?
the lost to the recovered?
the new caledonian crow to the chimpanzee?
the tribal jury to the pakistani teen?
ill-starred evenings to champion mystique?
sick as a writer writing to be lighter than the uncanny
when the invasion of Antarctica's complete
are we family?
