I Exist As A Myth


If you "bet she's not" my girlfriend

I sure wouldn't put any money on it

As if there is such a thing

As a true long distance relationship

That ever went without saying anyways


No, I'm not "the guy from The

__Hamburger Train"

Though my tones may sound a little

__on the crazily alike side anyway

The taunting of affection

What is she doing with me?

Do I even have the big picture?

Am I in control of where this is heading?

Much of my time spent on this subject

Elects such a prosperity to magnify the justice

I alligate without meaning

Serving the truth as it stands

Her in my life

And me not even a man

I don't like thee idea

That a man has to take charge

I don't live up to the moto

Of big pimpin' and mackin'

It's not what I wanna be

I could never be something I hate

That would make me into myself

And that is totally gay

Fuck confidence too

It's always black and white to me

Any bit of it, only, even

Is still over doing it for me

I couldn't stand to be arrogant

Though I have arrogant other selves

Our dissociation

Is making it so I could be a dick

And not have to realize

That that son of a bitch is me

I will always be more than

__just myself

For we've different roles

In my own gang

Separate from the gang

That half of us went into

They call them by our names instead

Even though they named G.A.W.N. too

They call them Duncan, or Dun

Even though it is Puppet, and G.A.W.N.

That they hang out with

And ironically, we let it go about it

__that way indefinitely

A lack of being believed in

Is such an impeccable blame

Why would I give people a name

That is not on my driver's license?
