preach

i get the impression you're trying to preach to me
i'm trying to be real
i'm trying to be thorough
i want an all-out success
or all out loss
because there's only one life here and its short
and i can't pretend that its the most important thing
because everybody falls in it, no one wants to admit it to themselves
our success and our world is our fall
what is in it is good but it will die
what is in it was good now it dies
what we think is good is rank
what i think i want should be blanked
what you think you love is corrupt
hold on too tight it'll all erupt
simple strong and pure and humble
in love and life and in trouble
so in lies my hypocrisy
i try to reach to you and you're tryin to reach to me
