(H)
look to the past to retrieve vivid entities
scars from the youth reflect unwanted memories
love's a struggle between the strong and the weak
even absolute beginners are playing hide n' seek
chasing each other- a race of love and hate
a race that never ends till time says too late
seeking love and happiness but the hearts are cold as stone
they build themselves a cage where they'll end up alone
visits have been abolished and this shit's killing my confidence
is this filling your conscience when distance is accomplishment?
'cause the parents never transfer that umbilical joy
girls create a false world and fill themselves with boys
universal love ain't the basis of action
in a nation of addicts, waiting for they satisfaction
where the word, itself, is fashioned in fits of passion
hand-in-hand with animalistic, orgasmic reaction

(chorus:)
you wanna know the truth? sometimes
it's only you on my mind
and those times I'm inclined to get
(down)
and then I take a sense of myself
reconsider my health and walk away
you wanna see what's sinking my thoughts
the heart of inking my plots
and the feelings that I fought to get
(down)
you're asking for a piece of my soul
already had it to hold, now walk away

(P)
take two at a year old verse, scratch the first
application- take a place till it hurts
I work tirelessly, trying to turn this two into one
just so I can shade your face from the sun
the sunlight's bright and I might just fall in love with a pretty mug
pretty smug, a bitty tug mind lend a kiss and rub
but what you know about that? you always know how to act
you always watch how I act, always concoct all the facts
that's why they chant, "can't join 'em? beat 'em"
might finish last but ain't lapped on this mad dash for freedom
'cept I'm a dreamer and I lack your commonsense
till I'm stranded in a city, swimming through a maze of consequence
you know, a million lights screamed you're right last night
but I was too proud to acknowledge it
you know, a millions lights screamed you're right through my flight
I just exhaled my pride and then swallowed it
(this is for you)

(chorus)

(H)
give way for another truth-less day
in this world, your only friend is you is what they say
attitude switching like the weather
confrontation one minute- the next minute you're better
I'm going hungry in the belly of the beast
that unclean serpent has got this lion on a leash
the man staring at pictures, memories are fading
like a shadow, swallows the light that he's evading

(P)
hold you down? I held you down like gravity
you ravaged me- depravity was savage like a battery
so what did you expect in the first place?
scenario's worst case like murder in the first case?
the worst taste, maced up in the face from the first base
the birthplace of hate, chased down at a lurched pace
so if you're gonna stand there while I stare up your skirt
maybe this'll bring you back down to Earth

(H/P)
for every lie that you told / for every second you stare
for all the hate you hold / for every time you're not there
for every word out your mouth / for every minute you cost
for every curse that I shout / for every clutch at the cross
for every beat of your heart / for every kiss in the dark
for every piece of my art / for every flame from the spark
for every breath that you breathe / for every fight of desire
for every drip that you bleed / for every night in the fire
I get down
