What

What kind of a human am I?
Do I live on the out or inside?
What fears me more, a crowd or a door?
The light of the day or the dark of my mind -
What kind of a human am I?

What kind of a brother am I?
Brave interloper or worthless old joker
A prodigal son, disappoint everyone
A gap in a family photographic album
What kind of a brother am I?

What kind of a lover am I?
Tender no hoper or grizzly groper,
Elaborate wanker or passionate spanker?
Too little too late or open flood gates
What kind of a lover am I?

What kind of a lover am I?
What kind of a brother am I?
What kind of a human am I?
Just cut me and see if I die
