The Narcissist

When is it alright to cross boundaries?

When is it alright to step over the line?

When is it alright to be selfish?

I am tired of bleeding out for this cause.

I want to live in deception,

Delivering my own perception of justice.

I want to lie in this pompous existence,

And drive you out of this rationalization.

Throw away generosity and amenities,

This time around we all turn black.

No more convention and confusion,

Just my dreams and myself. . .

I want to be naïve again,

God help me pull through.

Because this emptiness of appeasement,

Tears apart my dreams, my beautiful dreams. . .

So step by step and note by note,

I will fade into oblivion.

I will disappear into conformity,

Just my dreams and myself. . .
