The Ego Usurping the True-Self, ala Metallica!

“Sad But True”
Hey 

I’m your life 

I’m the one who takes you there 

I’m your life 

I’m the one who cares 

They 

They betray 

I’m your only true friend now 

They 

They’ll betray 

I’m forever there 
I’m your dream, make you real 

I’m your eyes when you must steal 

I’m your pain when you can’t feel 

Sad but true 

I’m your dream, mind astray 

I’m your eyes while you’re away 

I’m your pain while you repay 

You know it’s sad but true 
You 

You’re my mask 

You’re my cover, my shelter 

You 

You’re my mask 

You’re the one who’s blamed 
Do 

Do my work 

Do my dirty work, scapegoat 

Do 

Do my deeds 

For you’re the one who’s shamed 
I’m your dream, make you real 

I’m your eyes when you must steal 

I’m your pain when you can’t feel 

Sad but true 

I’m your dream, mind astray 

I’m your eyes while you’re away 

I’m your pain while you repay 

You know it’s sad but true 
I’m your dream.

I’m your eyes.

I’m your pain.

I’m your dream.

I’m your eyes.

I’m your pain.

You know it’s sad but true
Hate 

I’m your hate 

I’m your hate when you want love 

Pay 

Pay the price 

Pay, for nothing’s fair 
Hey 

I’m your life 

I’m the one who took you here 

Hey 

I’m your life 

And I no longer care 
I’m your dream, make you real 

I’m your eyes when you must steal 

I’m your pain when you can’t feel 

Sad but true 

I’m your truth, telling lies 

I’m your reasoned alibis 

I’m inside open your eyes 

I’m you 

Sad but true
