Why I'm better than him

I don't need drugs

To keep my demons at bay,

I don't need to make my mamma cry at night

To show I got something to say

I don't have to fight the law

To feel I got somethin' to prove

I don't have to run the streets

Like a fool,

the way that you do.

I don't need to drink myself

Into oblivion you see

I can look myself in the eye

When my reflection speaks to me

How do you live, I ask you

How do you live your life ?

How do you sleep with all the wrong you do

I bet you don't even cry at night

See I used to think that it made me weak'

Used to think I had something

Something' wrong with me

Cause if I saw you pass by,

I'd go lose at the knee

Now I know that's only cause I'm too real

And I have the capacity,

to love, and to feel,

And babe its your lack in all these things

That somehow keeps you free.

Love the irony, the opposite of responsible, genuine, thinking. Liked this theme - the delusions people live never fail to raise my brow - xoxoxo Stella
