From The Inside - EP

by Tim Be Told

Analyze 04:23
V1 Dear friend please tell me who I am and start from the inside Or wait instead, before it's said: all these monsters I couldn't hide beneath the bed, are in my head. If I was stronger they would have died But every once in a while I'm terrified.... CH Hey you could you analyze my state of mind my, state of mind? What did you recognize what did you find, what did you find? Of better days I'll fantasize am I satisfied, am I satisfied? Get rid of this low feeling with soul healing Get rid of this low feeling with soul healing V2 Please talk, before the clock runs out and I'm still a mystery You're not so wise. I apologize, I still care what you think of me. Cause to survive, I criticize all the people that I'll never be The truth is I bruise too easily... BR Convince me it's alright That loneliness will subside My hands tied, surrendered to all these storms that I weathered Are you listening? Whatever. Why is this taking forever? Heal it quick, I don't care how just fix me now....
Allow me to introduce you to some friends of mine They have both kept me company at some point in time One takes you captive, her comforts attractive While the beggars sit and wait at her door And with her you will always want more Wealth, why do you exist and why are you so hard to resist? We purchase we pay, we hope it gets better but hope is sold for the day Wealth and Poverty stay And then there's Poverty she's hard to shake Cause till death do us part is the same as forever She'll rob you dry, o you should see her cry when you find out you don't have anymore. She replies, "that is why you are poor." Poverty should you exist? "Yes of course," the rich men insist They'll give you a dollar and hope it gets better but hope is sold for the day Wealth and Poverty stay Why does it have to be so separate and clean? Abundance, destitution no in between And why do we desperately cling to our extremes? Mercy, do you exist? "Yes of course," the good men insist But mercy is silent 'cause no one will let her Give us hope for the dayThe love that I taste Wealth and Poverty stay
System 04:00
Third Wheel 03:33
He dangles you in front of me like a hooked worm in the sea Fishin' for an angry stare But I'm tryin' to play it cool cuz I won't be played a fool and I'll pretend that I don't care Excuse the immature expression it's slight regression in the things a usually say Baby I was here first, but I guess that he wins today So get out of my way with you two I'm done with pretending it's fun I'm tired of these third wheel games Cause high school is over and I'm getting older You always say that I belong, that I'm included but you're wrong, you brush me off so casually You're company's more than I can bear, you can't have both and think it's fair You'll have to choose eventually Can I have your full attention to this one objection in a point I have to relay He'll never deserve you, that's it, I got nothin' left to say I'm tired of his stories and his tall tales everyone sees through the lie Hey, good try Mr. Fly Guy, I don't want her back so goodbye
