  • Love's gonna get you killed
    But pride’s gonna be the death of you and you and me
    And you and you and you and me
    And you and you and you and me
    And you and you and you and me and

    It wasn't all to share, but there
    In another life, I surely was there
    It wasn't all to share, but there
    I care, I care

    Hell-raising, wheel-chasing, new worldy possessions
    Flesh-making, spirit-breaking, which one would you lessen?
    The better part, the human heart
    You love ’em or dissect 'em
    Happiness or flashiness? How do you serve the question?
    See, in the perfect world, I would be perfect, world
    I don't trust people enough beyond they surface, world
    I don't love people enough to put my faith in man
    I put my faith in these lyrics hoping I make amend
    I understand I ain't perfect
    I probably won't come around
    This time, I might put you down
    Last time, I ain't give a ****, I still feel the same now
    My feelings might go numb, you're dealing with cold thumb
    I’m willing to give up a leg and arm and show empathy from
    Pity parties and functions and you and yours
    A perfect world, you probably live another 24
    I can’t fake humble just 'cause your *** is insecure
    I can’t fake humble just 'cause your *** is insecure

    It wasn't all to share, but there
    In another life, I surely was there
    It wasn't all to share, but there
    I care, I care

    Maybe I wasn’t there
    Maybe I wasn't there
    Maybe I wasn't there
    Maybe I wasn't there

    Now, in a perfect world, I probably won't be insensitive
    Cold as December, but never remember what winter did
    I wouldn't blame you for mistakes I made or the bed I laid
    Seems like I point the finger just to make a point, nowadays
    Smiles and cold stares, the temperature goes there
    Indigenous disposition, feel like we belong here
    I know the walls, they can listen, I wish they could talk back
    The hurt becomes repetition, the love almost lost that
    Sick venom in men and women overcome with pride
    A perfect world is never perfect, only filled with lies
    Promises are broken and more resentment come alive
    Race barriers make inferior of you and I
    See, in a perfect world, I'll choose faith over riches
    I'll choose work over *****es, I'll make schools out of prison
    I'll take all the religions and put 'em all in one service
    Just to tell 'em we ain't ****, but He's been perfect, world

    It wasn't all to share, but there
    In another life, I surely was there
    It wasn't all to share, but there
    I care, I care

    Maybe I wasn't there
    Maybe I wasn't there
    Maybe I wasn't there
    Maybe I wasn't there
