 Struggling with Manhole? Become a better singer in 30 days with these videos!

I'm holding here a book 
Notable, but not the greatest 
Stolen for me by the latest in a long line of thieves 
And I'm just about to drop it down that man hole of memories 
But I realized it doesn't bother me like loves mementos usually do 
And I look up to see who's different here, the latest me or the latest you 
Course you're the kind of guy who doesn't lie he just doctors everything 
Who chooses some unassuming finger and quietly moves his wedding ring 
Who rewrites his autobiography for any pretty girl who will sing 
But you can't fool the queen baby cause I married the king 
It was I who betrayed his majesty though opposite reality 
Like a puddle with no reflection of the sky, of the trees 
But after my dreaded beheadding and I tied that sucker back on with a string 
And I guess I'm pretty different now, considering. 

I kissed you on the street that night on the far side of for ?
I didn't like taste in my mouth or yours 
And ignoring the persona you wore for my benefit 
For once I had balls, to call it, just call it
The lesson must be lived, in order to be learned 
And the clarity to see and stop this now
That is what I earned. 

It was I who betrayed his majesty though opposite reality ?
Like a puddle with no reflection of the sky, of the trees 
But after my dreaded beheading and I tied that sucker back on with a string 
And I guess I'm pretty different now, considering 
I'm holding here a book, notable and not the greatest. 

Stolen for me by the latest in a long line of thieves 
And I'm just about to drop it down the man hole of memories 
When I realize it doesn't bother me, a heartache not so dire 
And I look up to see integrity and finally won over desire
