I don't eat I just devour, everyone in every hour
All is me, is all I need and that's all that I care
Propelled through all this madness, by your beauty and my sadness
I'll never change or rearrange, till I've finished what I've started.

And life leads me here
It shows me, I have never really loved no one but me
Like the time, you slipped through my hands
I'll never understand why I'm such a selfish Man

Walk around me not before me
I'll pretend not to ignore ye
But I'll compromise if I realize you can do something for me
I'm ugly and you know it, but you think that I'm a poet
So I'll keep the rhyme if I feel in time, it gets me where I'm going

And life leads me here
It shows me, I have never really loved no one but me
Like the time, you slipped through my hands
And I'll never understand
No I'll never understand, why I'm such a selfish Man

All I heard was an unearthly silence
Apart from the violence, explode in my head
Where all at once was this moment of beauty
No more since it slew me, no never again, again, again

No I'll never understand
No I'll never understand, why I'm such a selfish Man
