Who
Who am I to be blue
Look at my family and fortune
Look at my friends and my house
Who
Who am I to feel dead and
Who am I to feel spent
Look at my health and money
And where
Where do I go to feel good
Why do I still look outside me
When clearly I've seen it wont work

Is it my calling to keep on when I'm unable
Is it my job to be selfless extraordinaire
My generosity has me disabled
By this my sense of duty to offer

Why
Why do I feel so ungrateful
Me who is far beyond survival
Me who's seen life as an oyster

Is it my calling to keep on when I'm unable
Is it my job to be selfless extraordinaire
My generosity has me disabled
By this my sense of duty to offer

And how
How dare I rest on my laurels
How dare I ignore an outstretched hand
How dare I ignore a third world country

Is it my calling to keep on when I'm unable
Is it my job to be selfless extraordinaire
My generosity has me disabled
By this my sense of duty to offer

Who who am I to be blue
