The Lyrics

In order to fully enjoy this, you need to be familiar with the Iori Yagami character from the "King of Fighters" series of games. You can visit PurpleFlames (not my site) to learn everything you ever wanted to know about Iori and then some.
I can't stand to fight
I'm not that crazy
I'm just out to find
The better part of me

I'm more than a freak, I'm more than a fiend
More than some pretty face on a magazine
And it's not easy to be me

I wish that I could cry
Fall upon my knees
Find a way to lie
About a mom I'll never see

It may sound absurd...but don't be naive
Even madmen have the right to bleed
I may be disturbed...but won't you conceed
Even madmen have the right to dream
And it's not easy to be me

Run, run far away...away from me
It's all right...You can all sleep sound tonight
I'm not crazy...or anything...

I can't stand to fight
Can't you feel my pain?
Men cannot survive
With bad blood in their veins

I'm only a man in a silly white shirt
Looking for a real quick way to end my hurt
Only a man with fastened-up knees
Looking for special things inside of me, inside of me, inside of me, inside of me

I'm only a man with fastened-up knees
I'm only man looking for a dream
I'm only a man with fastened-up knees
And it's not easy
It's not easy to be me.

The pacing is there, it was just a little too much like the original to be of my liking. Not bad by any means though.
