[Me] I have always been creative, I don’t understand
Aspired to be an artist, not a business man
[Pride] You need to show your old man you’re in control
To be successful, you’d sell you own soul!
Yeah, you’d sell your own soul! Yeah!
[Me] I've always been respectable, I don't understand
I tried to be compassionate, I’m not a ruthless man!
[Pride] You need to show them you're superior, you lead the field
No one opposes you, all men must yield!
Well, all men must yield! Yeah!
[Me] I've always been affectionate, don't understand
I really love her, I'm not a heartless man!
[Pride] You have no time for commitments, they get in the way
Get down to business, there's no time to play!

[Reason] You can still change and right what is wrong
[Pride] But can you swallow me? Am I too strong?
[Reason] You have to get back now, it’s not too late
[Pride] It’s not like you to resign to your fate
[Reason] The loved ones are waiting, break out of your cage
[Pride] You have the power, give in to your rage
[Reason] Listen to Pride now, for once he is right
[Pride] Listen to Reason, let us be your guide

    General CommentIncredible song from The Human Equation. The dialogue with Reason and Pride at the end is great and a defining point in the story.
