Burnt Pride is a crazy thing / But now what does it take to make you feel me concrete? / I ain't your maitre'd I ain't on pain relief / This ain't make believe I ain't on no ankle leash / I tried speaking in a rational manner /Tried to get my point across using regular me(ans) / I even patterned my delivery / Similarly after something you had said / So that you would not interpret me differently but / My head's on a tree swing / Your debt's still lingering / While you erect gates with codes really nobody knows / I ask, "Why's it always closed?" / I'm told it's my approach / Well let's suppose / just for the sole sake of argument that/ despite the spite and all the ill will you're harboring / that me, Lyrics Born, all this power that I'm harnessing / That I didn't come in here to no conquering / That I came in here to do a little bargaining / Grease key people do some apple polishing / Maybe hail a cab for my local congressman / so he can hook me with the landlord in parliament / Then I'll set up a booth, hand-pick my operatives / Train 'em up, send my squad of garbagemen / To spread the good will, all in the environment / and all the false doctrine and all the carcinogens, but now / I gotta be wise 'bout who I'm targeting / The key is make the young folks offerings / so that they don't become adults that are demonstrative / or else my chances of retirement go spiraling / So then I work my way into their subconsciousness / I tell them always use caution, now, cautiousness, because / Are you absolutely positive that you can make it without us and be prosperous? / You need to look at me and my accomplishments / Hey, I got an idea, let's start a partnership! / It'll be just like livin' in a Harlequin / And we'll feed our pond fishies ostriches / we'll feed the starved kiddies self-doubt lozenges / Just peeling layer after layer off their confidence / until it's one planet us homogenous / versus one gumball you optimists!! / Burn pride!! Burn pride!! / Burn pride!! Burn Pride!! / Burnt Pride is a crazy thing / What does it take to make you feel me concrete? / I ain't your maitre'd, I ain't on pain relief / this ain't make believe, I ain't on no ankle leash / I tried speaking in a rational manner / Tried to get my point across using conventional means / I even patterned my delivery similarly after something you had said / so that you would not interpret me differently, but- / My head's on a tree swing / Your debt's still lingering / While you erect gates with codes really nobody knows / I ask, "Why's it always closed?" / I'm told it's my approach / Okay, what's appropriate your royal holiness? / Shall I fan you with foliage in front of an audience? / Hi-five Napoleon? / Lo-five a Scorpion? / Then and only then would there ever be an opening / Well, that's just your big, wet blanket of power / You weight us down with double-talk until we think we're insane / But if you're trying to save your pride / You're trying to save your pride / As far as I'm concerned that shit is going down in flames / With your piddly-ass riddles / You think I ain't mentally apt / I see you slither 'round my ankle like I ain't gonna react / No more me nibblin' on a bridle while you're kickin' my abs / No more "everything's Ore-Ida" when I can't even stand / No more fiddling with the maps / No more belittling the past / No more nonsense when my questions is asked / No more concessions for an ego so fragile / Any self-expression chips away at your castle / Your pride's your damsel, you built your barricade / I was so careful / I danced around your insecurities /on your schedule / Ignored all your absurdities / But all the people / you parody with that dogshit your nurturing / Then you have the nerve to take certain shit personally / I didn't even speak a handful and I encroached on your territory / You need therapy there mister Pharisee / seriously, 'cause apparently your circuitry's terribly damaged / How 'bout a nice hot kerosene bath / I'll come back / I'll serenade you with flaming arrows oh serpentine / Your pride needs refurbishing / I'll extend you that courtesy like- / "Hi, this is Lyrics Born servicing!" / Burnt Pride!! Burnt Pride!!
