Hear me when I speak and just listen and try not to be Some kind of self-righteous high being with the opposite mislead me To better your mind and see this is a story of how we can't be.
They're building you up to tear you down They won't admit it but it's true Smiling advice to end with your frown Cuz they don't want what's best for you. It's sad, I know, I know But you know I'm something else And now's my time to just sit back and tell that
You don't know just when to stop. You're living life to be on top, So start back here and be realin' And just admit the way you feelin' See we're all one page learning gang And it's true that We all want to be the baddest; We all have a little baggage, Even though we hide it And we always will deny it; We are driving this float down In this pride parade
And I'm not saying that I'm any better than you Sometimes I have motives that are just so stupid And I play the fool But man you're killing me The charade has got to end So stop acting like you know everything Because you're missing the point You were supposed to be my friend
Just try just trying to lean away Take me to another place where I know I know What's happening to my head and to my dreams? cuz I want I want, I need I need Some piece of mind and clarity So just take take my hand and let's leave
