If I hollowed you out and put your soul on a shelf
Would it be yourself or would it be someone else
Would it be the person that you try to be
Or would it be a black soul painted so effortlessly

Watch who you curse

Watch who you curse

And if I hung your soul out to dry
Would the foul stench of selfish pride, burn my eyes
Be that place where you reside
Behind trust and loyalty or behind closed eyes

Watch who you curse
'cause in reverse
It bleeds it hurts
And be selective
of the people you hate
'cause plastic shadows retaliate

And if I painted a picture of your life
Would it be in shades of black, or shades of white?
Would it take you long to realise
That it’s not you behind those eyes

Watch who you curse
'cause in reverse
It bleeds it hurts
And be selective
of the people you hate
'cause plastic shadows retaliate

    General Commentcan't believe there's only one comment to this song... In the beginning it almost sounds like something from tool... the lyrics are kind of keeps keeps me from mixing them up. Anyway it's a good song. I'm just wondering if it's such a terrible thing to have a black soul...

    General Commentmeaning,if you hate someone,leave it at that rather then backstab them because when they retaliate back to you, you find out how it hurts and how it made them feel. L kyne good meaning.
