When I'm not thinking about myself, I'm thinking of you / when I'm not holding myself together, I'm holding you / when I'm not keeping myself in line, when I'm not doing time, all I hold, I hold for you.
And if you think I'm going to fold for those bricks that are painted gold, I know money is as easy as paying a price / and I'll be singing sha-la-la-la-la as the walls all fall apart, but I'm taking my own advice.
So don't ask me to prove / and don't ask me to choose / you gotta fight on the street everyday for what you need / and honey you know that I do.
Well all I want is all that's been denied / and to give you everything I hold inside / but if the blood turns to a stone, if the reasons are all gone, all I hold will still be true.
And if you think you know my name, if you think it'll stay the same, feel the fire that's ripping through my insides / and if you can't control the burn, well you're old enough to learn to take your own advice.
