Trauma turned the feathers white
In the judge's chamber we lived inside
Tears of laughter the only medicine in sight

I need the potion for the poison
The antidote's all antiquated
Black record cures, turning the tables around

I wish I was a Tenenbaum
I wish I was a Tenenbaum
I wish I was a Tenenbaum
I think maybe I was...

He sounded just like my old man did
Taught me to put a brick through the other guy's window
I built this wall between this season and these thoughts I used to know

I'm so sorry I let you down, but my shepherd led me to my redemption
Cut and paste this up to you now
I'm gonna make this all up to you somehow

Turning the tables around...

I wish I was a Tenenbaum
I wish I was a Tenenbaum
I wish I was a Tenenbaum
I think maybe I was...

So, why all the dysfunctioning?
The kids can't make sense of anything
I'm tearing down the walls between the reasons
And the record cures that keep me spinning

I wish I was a Tenenbaum
I wish I was a Tenenbaum
I wish I was a Tenenbaum
I think maybe I was...
