Dysfunctional

Anne Dorko

Lyrics

It's not for lack of wanting

To do the things that I have to do today

It's not for lack of knowing

How I should do them to make them go away

I broke it all down in steps I understand

I've got all the right pieces

Here in my hand

But I'm drawing all blanks

No I can't even start

It's falling apart

Cause

I'm dysfunctional

My executive reasoning

Has gone out the window

And I'm not (I'm not) far behind

I'm looking for a parachute

Cause I'm chasing my problems

Right off the roof

Yeah we're fine (We're fine)

I'm gonna be fine

One of these days

I'm gonna catch up

Oh, one of these days

I'll have done enough (Enough)

Right?

It's not for lack of schedule

Or looming deadlines to tackle this whole list

It's not for lack of pressure

To get it done so I can finally just exist

I lined 'em all up to knock 'em all down

So why am I the one

Laying here on the ground

And I can't seem to move

No I can't even budge

You know

It's all because

I'm dysfunctional

All of my energy

Flew out the window

And I'm not (I'm not) far behind

I'm looking for a parachute

Cause I'm chasing my problems

Right off the roof

Yeah we're fine (We're fine)

I'm gonna be fine

One of these days

I'm gonna catch up

Oh, one of these days

I'll have done enough (Enough)

Right?

I'm frozen

In permanent malfunction

I'm hopeless

All or nothing in production

I'm restless

But my body just won't move

I'm tired

And sleep evades me, too

How much of this pressure (I'm frozen)

Is from my own head (In permanent malfunction)

How much could I let go (I'm hopeless)

And just not do instead (All or nothing in production)

The tasks they keep piling (I'm restless)

And I keep on climbing (But my body just won't move)

The world keeps exploding (I'm tired)

But I must keep going (And sleep evades me, too)

I'm dysfunctional (How much of this pressure, I'm frozen)

All my sense of purpose (Is from my own head, In permanent malfunction)

Escaped out the window (How much could I let go, I'm hopeless)

And I'm not far behind (And just not do instead, All or nothing in production)

I'm looking for a parachute (The tasks they keep piling, I'm restless)

Cause I'm chasing my problems (And I keep on climbing, But my body just won't move)

Right off the roof

Yeah we're fine (The world keeps exploding, I'm tired)

I'm gonna be fine (But I must keep going, And sleep evades me, too)

Cause one of these days

I'm gonna catch up

Oh, one of these days

I'll have done enough

One of these days

I'm gonna catch up

Oh, one of these days

I'll have done enough

One of these days

I'm gonna catch up

Oh, one of these days

I'll have done enough

Right?
