It's all about steam.
It's all about dreams.
It's all about making
The best out of everything.
You'll know when your fine.
'Cause you'll talk like a mime.
And you'll fall on your face,
You get back up, man you're doing fine.

"A considerate clown, a preachy preaching machine"
Is one of the sweetest things you would say about me.
But I don't have the time for your distorted esteem.
Why are you toying with my mind?

I don't wanna hear you
Say-say-say-say-say-say-say-say it.
I don't wanna hear you
Say-say-say-say-say-say it.
I don't wanna hear you
Say-say-say-say-say-say-say-say it.
Now you're messin' with my pride.

Look, you think you're smarter than me.
Well, everyone knows you will never be smarter than me...
That's how it goes
I gained forty pounds because of you.
Was there an "S" on my chest?
Well I confess, you were too much stress.
I'd have a heart attack at best.
So now I breathe it out, I breathe it out.
And I spit it on the crowd cause they lift me up, they lift me up,
They lift me up when I'm feeling down.
What am I spitting out? Spitting out?
Something we never talk about.
It's called my... mind.

I don't wanna hear you
Say-say-say-say-say-say-say-say it.
I don't wanna hear you
Say-say-say-say-say-say it.
I don't wanna hear you
Say-say-say-say-say-say-say-say it.
Now you're messin' with my pride.

I'm sick of standing in your line
So now you'll have to take it.
Take this to heart
I will never let you fuck me over.
Stop talking down to me, your war is old
Your game is over.
So here's my coldest shoulder.

I don't wanna hear you
Say-say-say-say-say-say-say-say it.
I don't wanna hear you
Say-say-say-say-say-say it.
I don't wanna hear you
Say-say-say-say-say-say-say-say it.
Now you're messin' with my... pride.

My pride.

Something we don't talk about.
Something we never talk about.

    An emotionally abusive relationship in where the girl never gives him the time of day and basically screws over his every thought, so now he's standing up for himself
