Lyrics

Proud (To Be Dysfunctional)

I am proud to be dysfunctional

Why should I not be?

I’ve been kicked around by this thing called life,

Since before the age of three

I’ve got an issue with my issues

I think I’ll be OK

So I’m standing tall;

Warts and all, upon my feet of clay

 

My father was manic-depressive,

He would not take his pills

He could beat those “crazy doctors”

In a test of wills

He never was a pious man

I can hear him to this day:

Yelling, “Get up damn it, we’re going to church;

Your mother wants to pray”

 

That’s why I’m proud to be dysfunctional

I hope that you are too

This world is such a messy place

I get hopeless and confused

I’m dealing with my imperfections;

I hate to hear the news:

Jesus was the last perfect man;

I guess the rest of us are screwed

 

I’m living in a Prozac-Nation;

Full of anger, guilt and shame

At least I know when I screw up,

There is someone else to blame

My parents and “the system" made me what I am

I blame Woodstock, Nixon, the Missile-Crisis,

And the War in Vietnam

 

I am proud to be dysfunctional

Why should I not be?

I’ve been kicked around by this thing called life,

Since before the age of three

I’ve got an issue with my issues;

But I think I’ll be OK

So I’m standing tall;

Warts and all, upon my feet of clay.

 

Enlightenment will light up your life,

If you can learn to love the real you

That’s why I’m proud to be dysfunctional

I hope that you are too
