A look at how the human machine works and what drives it. In this case, my machine.
Gonna stop, and think a few
Expose what I'm committed to
Take a closer look, and see
What it is that's running me?
Let me introduce myself
Fun and friendly, hooked on health
Generous as you could wish
And considered quite a dish
Mostly happy, at times insane
Turn my back, so you can feel my pain
Hold you close when I hear thunder
Let you gaze, admire and wonder
Want me, just enough to know
You'll be there when I let go
Love being right, and, not to mention
Dammit, I adore attention!
Hopeful, sweetheart, up for fun
Tease me and I come undone
Dreamer, dancer, storyteller
Feeble, frantic, fearful fella
Peaceful, calm, warrior Prince
Get my way, judge and convince
Pretend to listen, so I can speak
Creative genius, attention freak
Worship, cherish and adore me
Scared, I let your love ignore me
Desperate, I hunt your heart down
Humiliated, foolish, clown!
Beat me up, make myself wrong
Sounds like a familiar song?
Stick in the knife, twist it around
Hold me under, gasp and drown
Soul sliced by every incision
Cuts with surgical precision
Charming, witty, eye for fashion
Stone-faced, steel eyes, no compassion
Conniving, scheming, love control
The framework built around my soul
Open-minded, guarded heart
Made self-destruction in to art
Cunning mind, I grow, and know
To deal a devastating blow
Move mountains just to help you shine
Align your goals and thoughts to mine
Love, torment, enjoy the latter
Find fault, just so I can matter
Beam in like a crystal, bright
Scare the darkness from the night
So peek inside a little more
To see who lives behind the door
Lift my mask, I'll let you see
Needy, greedy, ego feedy, me!
