We only have one candle
To burn down to the handle
No matter what they say
If you live like a man,
You live in tales you tell

To rage and run like a fool
You need no brain, your best tool
Stay put and as they say
Live like a man, the only way you can

You let the phone line bring it home to you
The life, the lies, the dreams
You cannot see the real thing underneath
- Naked truth revealed

You type your name on one row
To get dosed-up tomorrow
You live in a CC dream, with your machine
It's your goal supreme

You think you have it all now
The wisdom, power, know-how
Can't even think you're wrong
This is the way the brain of a male is made

You let the phone line bring it home to you
The life, the lies, the dreams
You cannot see the real thing underneath
- Naked light revealed

If you live, you will die
You won't live forever stuck in time
Ebb and flow, push and tow
You must keep it real to find her

You let the phone line bring it home to you
The life, the lies, the dreams
Can't even see the real thing underneath
- Naked light revealed

If you live, you will die
You won't live forever stuck in time
Ebb and flow, push and tow
You must keep it real to find her

    The notion of manhood, the way that society pressures males to behave in order to be "real men" is an attempt to fulfill a self-destructive desire - the desire to be special, to be someone. This includes the desire to be needed, e.g. by women. It's said that women are, men are made; and this thinking is damaging to both sexes. In the case of men, it encourages macho, insensitive and brutish behaviour that not only makes one less of a real (hu)man, but will repel true love and a true sense of self. Women, being accustomed to being pressured to act feminine every day, see through this farce easily and the only way to find her is to "keep it real" and be yourself, just as she too struggles to do. It is about realizing the truth that you are not special; you are not a hero; you will die; in the grand scheme of things YOU DO NOT MATTER but regardless, if you think for yourself and live a good life you will be special to someone.

    I'm not sure what CC machine refers to, though.
