lion

got it on top
going for broke
left it on the level
but the balance was off
slid down towards defeat
but the hammer hits
never being discreet
in my pleasures
where ever that leads
mangled over the years
thought i was one
to be along the side
but the habits died
the old stories too
i am what you see
now before you
let it be known
the person i now face
is the one i became
the one with hard truths
hung over my head
that will still be told
long after you and i are dead
the reflection i see
shows what was inside me
hear me now
let me roar
