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!
