EL-P lyrics : "The Overly Dramatic Truth"

(feat. Daryl Palumbo, Camu Tao)

(Verse 1)
I became for you what you had asked
you're too young to ask outloud
I'm too old to not know that
I can talk like you've not heard
I know weapons
you think words I exposed you to these terms
you still chose to roll unheard
that could work but
not so fast
you're so open
I'm so crass
I'm to weak to hold that back
you still think intrigue will last
you can't imagine of my past
I just can't explain all that
I wish I could trad you're place
so romantic full of faith
I must spare you
I must learn
I refuse to be your first
first to put you in your place
first to make you speed your pace
I'm a man now (good or bad)
you're a girl still, (good for you)
don't think this don't make me sad
this is something I must do

keep you own time (leave me be)
trying to spare you (trying to be)
god melodic (man on fire)
coward long gone (all desire)
fuck you raw now (it's my fault)
fuck you raw dog (I can't stop)
should have listened
should have left
I can't stop unless you're dead
it's so simple...open head
I will knit my savage thread
help me help you (walk away)
leave this un-amazing grace
you don't know you from pure disgrace
you still think I'm here to save
I'm not even really here
I can't give what I can't take

what a ride
what a slide under the door
what a score
you think I'm a genius?
I know I'm a whore
what a time
what a climate for our lives
what's in store?
you see live forever
all I see is war
I will pull your hair back
fuck you on the floor
pour myself into the act
poor myself (boo hoo I'm bad)
cause I know that these moments end
but telling you the truth is sad
you deserve the ignorance and bliss that I still wish I had
don't you let me keep you here
don't ignore my greatest fear
I need you to not need me
you need not beleive just flee
I will put myself in side you
find some way to run and hide you
I can't be responsible
do as I say, not as I do


this is not my ego talking
I know I'm no perfect draw
and I do love the way you lat there
and I do like the way we talk
maybe I'm just condescending
maybe this thing isn't wrong
maybe you should lay right there
put your hands up in the air

[Fades out:]
You still think I'm here to save

this is my type of religion
