Because It's Me, Me, Me


I wouldn't tell it to this face of the world

__that looks at my faces

____and laughs

I wouldn't say it to my courtship

__of all the loves that come

____just to pass

But I will hear it in my life

The many lives I live

How, whatever is the reason

To steer me off my ship

"I can only be me

So this is MY life"

Thee echoing phrase on the paper

Do no justice to it all

I am wrong

Many wrong

And am so much more

It's not all about me

So I will collapse one day when I see

A life built off of myself

Crumbling to the sea

A shameful waste

My ratings have shown

And I will be the biggest regret

Of my father having a son

When I will finally be complete

I will have done it all for me

Next is me being murdered

And if not, I still won't undo it all

I'll check in time and time again

On my underground fame for DLCannon Reprise

And at thee end of my life

DLCannon will too, see it's end

How do I check up on me there

When I die?

I don't know why

I don't know why

Freedom from eating French fries

I guess
