for a woman
all too often
it's not about
the reputation
that precedes her
but rather unfairly
like a stalker
it's what follows
closely behind her
DevMon Jan 3
He looks decieving
I didn't saw that coming
He looked at me
Wearing a high class outfit

He's too naive
Have a self-esteem
But it's just a little bit showy
So that he'll be recognized and praised

Jesters are in a crowd
Clowns are spreading all around
Spontaneously making crimes
Inside the party of royalties

He came to me
Convinced me to be like him
To be a partner of him
But do I really like to be like him?

If you want me to be a villain
Well, sorry dear
I'm worried about me
Being exposed in public
Hidden Message: Don't ruin me, I'm innocent

why do anything if it will fall short of perfection?
i have a reputation, after all
and ive been dragging its corpse with me
for a long long time
the weary old corpse of when the sun still shined
and i had dared to be brighter

If the situation is as complicated as it seems,
figure out how to own this **** and manifest your dreams,
run now , the vapors are opening,
the happening is so seeming,
you map out your cause and effect,
when reality tells you reality check and seems you lack
like lack luster with facts and all accordingly leading you
back to the real world ,
you really just gotta chill girl,
Luck doesn't exist but karma does , if its any constellation,
old times reside where the modern was , but its all a simulation,
you say you are all about good energy, still with complications?
The Vultures are lurking roun' the corner , that should be your occupation,
gotta rewire the program so right with perfection installation,
Don't give a **** about fake friends , this was never about reputation.

Reputation - what they think they see
Character - what you prove to be

Image - what is seen from afar
Substance - what you truely are

The difference is what makes a man
a sure and steadfast gentleman
Built from a line from a movie

I
follow your pattern
You
totally change
my nervous system
I
don't know what happen
Is it real or a game!?

Also
you
change my reputation
Nobody
I
should blame
Is it real or a game!?
This
question is rotating
In my head
is still vibrating!

Who do you wish to be?
Who do you wish to die as?
How will we remember you?
As joyous or as pious?

So, you fancy fame?
Are you willing to step into the frame,
And give up your life
In exchange for the spotlight?

Careful--
It could go out soon.
Wistful--
Listen to the monster's croon.

So, you envy the game?
Will you keep your reputation tame?

And listen as they watch,
While you are left all done and used


Like another belt notch.
