Man Up (A Song)

Beyond the capacity of my own mind, I’m trying to decipher all the codes and road signs of the divine. I’m looking back, I’m seeing black, I’m seeing white and it’s no secret I…I’m spinning round, I’m sliding down, the sides of this box that I am stuck inside.

Despite the prose I compose to sound just right, at home alone I find comfort in the victimized. Why did he do that? How could he not factor in all the things I put on the line? Again it’s poor I, I’m under attack, of malicious hearts that give nothing back.

I’ve looked this case up and down now. All the evidence and defenses have been laid out. I’ve seen it concise, and I’ve seen it long. So many renditions and editions that I, choose to hold, hold on, to the one that leaves me pleasantly…in the right, you were wrong, just change a little bit and we can carry on…I in the right, you were wrong, just change a little bit…and the…

Only conclusion I come to is maybe it just wasn’t right. But the childish solution I’m choosing where I don’t have to let go or cry, is you better man up, you better man up, you better man up.

Beyond the walls I grow tall to save face behind, all the blame that I place brings no peace of mind. These stoic stones, I thought would save me, from reality I tried to hide. And I sit here alone, isolated, while denial eats me alive.

And I realize, the reason I, had to vilify and hold you as a guilty man. Is just this mind, can’t finalize, I been trying but can’t seem to understand how…two souls that, seemed to match, couldn’t hatch a plan to make it right. Two souls that, seemed to have, everything right, and the…

Only conclusion I come to is maybe it just wasn’t right. But this childish solution I’m choosing is eating me up in my pride, so I better man up, I better man up, I better man up.

Beyond the awareness that I’ve been choosing lately, I think it’s time for me to say sorry maybe. We tried to be kind, patient and wise. We knew that just time would take the voltage away. So I lay down my arms, I man up and start, to love you in a different way.

To love you in a different way.
