Don't make me a promise
you'll never follow through.
Don't promise me the sun,
then bring me morning's dew.

Don't promise me life,
when I see but decay.
Don't promise me the road,
cause I'll find my own way.

Don't promise me full love,
when you can only give some.
Don't promise me you'll be there,
when you really can't come.

Don't promise me everything,
for some I will settle.
Don't promise me the rose,
then bring me the petal.

Don't promise me first,
when I fit in the middle.
Don't promise me much,
when I want so little.

"If to rectify your demeanor,
You must imitate another,
Your philosiphy on morality
Is a burden on your mentality,
Your actions based on popularity,
Will never fulfill you internally,
Cuz the world was not blessed with equality,
But rather with fake geniality.
