-I Tell the World-

while you're, "Look at me! I can win!"
I'm quiet, saying, "Look at him."
while you're saying, "I want to be happy",
I'm worrying on generosity
while you try to hide lies with lies
I have to fight to keep the truth inside
while you hold control, you don't let go,
I am free with ease and let it show
you use a noose to confuse and bruise
while my hold on you is much too loose
you hurt, you sin, but that's worth the win
still I tell the world, "Be good to him."
you're all about your amounts
I want you happy, that's what counts
you need everything, infinity is not enough
I'm seeing, saying, "You just need love."
