I'm holding here a book
Notable, but not the greatest
Stolen for me by the latest in a long line of thieves
And I'm just about to drop it down that man hole of memories
But I realized it doesn't bother me like loves mementos usually do
And I look up to see who's different here, the latest me or the latest you
Course you're the kind of guy who doesn't lie he just doctors everything
Who chooses some unassuming finger and quietly moves his wedding ring
Who rewrites his autobiography for any pretty girl who will sing
But you can't fool the queen baby cause I married the king
It was I who betrayed his majesty though opposite reality
Like a puddle with no reflection of the sky, of the trees
But after my dreaded beheadding and I tied that sucker back on with a string
And I guess I'm pretty different now, considering.

I kissed you on the street that night on the far side of for ?
I didn't like taste in my mouth or yours
And ignoring the persona you wore for my benefit
For once I had balls, to call it, just call it
The lesson must be lived, in order to be learned
And the clarity to see and stop this now
That is what I earned.

It was I who betrayed his majesty though opposite reality ?
Like a puddle with no reflection of the sky, of the trees
But after my dreaded beheading and I tied that sucker back on with a string
And I guess I'm pretty different now, considering
I'm holding here a book, notable and not the greatest.

Stolen for me by the latest in a long line of thieves
And I'm just about to drop it down the man hole of memories
When I realize it doesn't bother me, a heartache not so dire
And I look up to see integrity and finally won over desire
