I’m a man. I say those words with tears in my eyes
and I’m still feeling the pressure where leverage has been applied.
I’m great at giving up when effort is required. Man I try over and over until I tire.
I’m a man, when the lows in the valley seem even higher,
beating in my heart is weaker and my soul’s on fire.
I say man, I’ma be here till I expire, soul survivor. To the finish yo.
I have gotten myself turned around, am I chained to this shame, am I found now?
I chose to believe in the words of that woman
ain’t it something how you want it so you overlook
what’s obvious and strange is still the truth my ninja
to be misled by the fallacy when all’s fair in love and war.
Still waters running, I’m just trying to stay afloat.
