"Pride" as written by and Darrell Lance/abbott Abbott....
I'm sickened
I know I've been betrayed
But I keep ignoring
The warning signs

You tell me
That I'm not beneath you
But you act above me
Knives in my spine

Now with all the money in the world
You can't buy my respect
Yeah, it's just a matter of pride
But that's all I've got left

I reach up
For your hand as you stand
Looking down on me but
You turn your back

Now with all the money in the world
You can't buy my respect
Yeah, it's just a matter of pride
But that's all I've got left

    General CommentMissing 1 course

    I believed you
    Now everything that we had
    that I thought was sacred
    Has turned to black


    Added that for the respect of Darrell

    General CommentGood shit here. This one here is about straight up betrayal and now with all the money in the world, this person couldn't buy his respect back. Reminds me of some of my friends, my old job.. Good shit.

    General CommentOh and this song is about being betrayed but still having enough pride to be able to look away from them and to cope without them in your life.
    They cant buy his respect back for what they have done to him.
    Good song, everyone can relate to it.
