An invalid argument burns behind my eyes

I want to scream and rage and shout

But know I'll only cry

My pride is always in the way

Of what I feel compelled to say

Blocking me from saying I was wrong

I wasn't wrong! How would you dare

To tell me truths that just aren't fair

Your words I will defy.

Maybe I was wrong this time

But I still won't admit it

Until you take back what you said.

Harsh truth should be a crime.

An invalid argument is all that I have left

But I will stand behind it

My pride is strong, that's why.
