Cruelty, is the better part of your honesty;
and when you're so direct it's just for yourself to protect.

And if I started crying, yeah, would you start crying?
And if I started crying, would you start crying?
And sometimes; when I see a world inside,
sometimes; when I, you know I try.

And hope is just another rope to hang myself with,
to tie me down, somethin' real comes around.

And if I started crying, well, would you start crying?
Now I started crying, why are you not crying?
Sometimes; when I got a world inside,
and sometimes; when I... I try, I really try (hey)

When I, when I, when I,
when I, when I, when I, when I...

When I started crying, yeah, would you start crying?
And when I started crying, why are you not crying?
And, sometimes; when I see a world inside,
sometimes; when I, you know I try, I really try.

    General CommentThe version I downloaded sounds more like...

    "Cruelty, is the better part of your honesty;
    and when you're so direct it's just for yourself to protect.

    And if I started crying, yeah, would you start crying?
    And if I started crying, would you start crying?
    And sometimes; when I see a world inside,
    sometimes; when I, you know I try.

    And hope is just another rope to hang myself with,
    to tie me down, somethin' real comes around.

    And if I started crying, well, would you start crying?
    Now I started crying, why are you not crying?
    Sometimes; when I got a world inside,
    and sometimes; when I... I try, I really try (hey)

    When I, when I, when I,
    when I, when I, when I, when I...

    When I started crying, yeah, would you start crying?
    And when I started crying, why are you not crying?
    And, sometimes; when I see a world inside,
    sometimes; when I, you know I try, I really try."
