The Man in Me
- 2 Views
There's a man in me He's cold and he's hard He's got an eye for deception He's always on guard He's swimming in concrete Drowning in fear And he keeps it all locked in his heart This man is a tyrant, a fault finding hack You can't tell him nothing There's no turning back He leaves blood on the highway And scattered debris He crawls from the wreckage But he still doesn't see He's alive The man is jive There's a man in the mirror I don't like his looks His teeth they are crooked His hands are like hooks He speaks 4 letter language Because his mind is so small His voice is like venom I don't like him at all God, I gotta get away from the man in me She says What are you afraid of There's no need to judge You know I can help you But you won't even budge Pretty flowers surround you But all you can smell is a rat She says Why do you insist on your head in the sand Building walls all around you, you don't understand These ways are outmoded, But all you can change is your hat The man in me don't wanna know nothing about that There's a man in the closet He wants to come out He wants to be noticed But he's so filled with doubt He wants to be well known and famous But he's so filled with pride The keys to his fortune stay locked up inside Can it be the man in me? She says Now what are you afraid of? There's nothing to fear You want me to help But you won't let me near In your heart you can hear me But all you believe are your eyes Tell me why you're convinced That a fist in your face Is all you deserve From love you've misplaced The truth is salvation But all you believe in are lies The man in me wants to believe, But he won't even try There's man in me, And he's so full of hate He's so misdirected He thinks it's too late Pours salt on the wounds Only Time wants to heal He's dying inside And he don't wanna feel Anything The man is strange
