Selfish Pride

A long time ago
We used to have some pride
We would take our selfishness
And throw it away

A long time ago
We had some sympathy
For the crashing of the hope
And the crashing of the tides

Throw all your pride away
We don’t need it today
Step down from your podium
And forget
I don’t need your selfish pride
And I never will
So I swear to this very day
I won’t let my pride get in the way.

You say you can fight your own battles
But you can’t take the pain
So when it all comes crashing down
Your on the verge of insane

People are dissing
And What your really missing
Is some new perspective
Get over it

So let people in
Don’t lock them out
‘cause you’ll be missing out
On our battles

Throw all your pride away
We don’t need it today
Step down from your podium
And forget
I don’t need your selfish pride
And I never will
So I swear to this very day
I won’t let my pride get in the way.

So get off of your high horse
Because I have something to stay
But you have no time to listen
So go away.
