Nothing but jive

 
In time, will life backslap your egotistic feelings?
Trying to sit up straight in such curved dealings
So fools, when did you last take a deep breath?
Rewording history to speak your shallow mess,
-
Back to the lying room to converse with thyself,
-
No clue of the past so no clue of what's to come
I said I believe you but do you believe you, son?
Keeping this circular logic sword under the belt
Are you trying hard to convince me or yourself?
