Surrender (A Second to Think)

This song is by Saul Williams and appears on the album Saul Williams (2004).

Well, there's two ways I can say this
And one would be: fuck you
And there's no two ways around it
Because one would be untrue

'Cause
I love everything about you
But I don't wanna be around you

If you control my heart, will you control my brain?
If I give in to you, will it still feel the same?
'Cause I want nothing more than to be here with you
If you fulfill my dreams, will that fulfill you, too?

I need a second
I need a second to think
I need a second

Now, the other way to play this
Would be mellow, light and cool
Poetry and meditation
Higher ground and higher truth

But
I love everything about you
But I use everything to doubt you

If you control my heart, will you control my brain?
If I give in to you, will it still feel the same?
'Cause I want nothing more than to be here with you
If you fulfill my dreams, will that fulfill you, too?

I need a second
I need a second to think
I need a second

I found the spot where truth echoes
And know each beauty mark by heart
But I just can't keep her still enough
To render perfect art

'Cause the truth is ever changing
And although she loves my touch
I've had my way, but I when I pray
She kisses back too much

And it's hard to feel real gangster
When you're always getting kissed
But you jump at every pucker
'Cause your fear of getting dissed

I try not to fight the parts of me
That want to kiss her back
Egos should be illegal
Mine just don't know how to act

He tells me I don't need her
And I should walk this path alone
She's make believe, she's up my sleeve
That I'd do better with a clone

But could it be?
It seems to me that she's my other half
My inner Tarzan monkey girl
Who's raised mainly by giraffes

And besides she makes me laugh
'Cause deep down, I think she's stupid
But deeper down, I'm just a clown
Starting bar room brawls with cupid

Like, "Fuck that naked baby angel, yo
And gimme two more buttery nipples"
And God just re-invents herself
As ice-cubes in my ripple
