The Songs : Tow The Bar


*Finished* 6/02
Music (5-6/02) Words (5/02)

I am a hypocrite
I am completely full of shit
my head is bigger than your mouth
I know every fact that comes out
I don't give a damn about you
as long as I do what I want to
all I can think of is me
my opinion is everything
I am a gift to God's earth
I only care about my worth
I don't tow the bar
the bar is towing me

A momentary lapse of selfishness
how could I have forgotten myself
a momentary lapse of selfishness
how could I have forgotten myself

I have the most fun
and I blame my mistakes on anyone
I take advantage of who I can
I always have to prove I'm a man
and no problem to lie or cheat you
if I need to make my way through
I speak and everyone heeds
no one hurts until I bleed
you're not as important as my time
all I want becomes mine
I never tow the bar
the bar keeps towing me

I never lose faith when I'm correct
why should I give you any respect
I never lose faith when I'm correct
why should I give you any respect

One moment I'll be plotting your end
and the next I'll pretend like I'm your best friend
as long as you keep towing the bar
I'll never have to change
I'll never have to change
I'll never change
