You Know I Know

A spider crawls under that mask
I know and don’t have to ask
Ain’t life sometimes a funny thing?
We both fight and argue for wanting bling

The thought of danger makes me think
If all this coming will soon sting
If I take cover and leave closed the door
Would you unlock it or slide past my floor?

I know you will not cause any harm
Cuz all you do is grab me by the arm
Although you act so tough and like you’re in charge
I’ve come to realize the mask you wear is large

If before I knew of thrill to be this strong
I would have never longed for long
Of time where you may throw
To test if I can take the blow

But it’s your face that I adore
And I’m telling you, I want more.
