Ego (lyrics and audio)

I’ve tried to follow
I’ve often failed
I’ve tried to swallow
This bitter pill
I’ll take the glory
But skip the pain
Edit the story
To fit my frame

And now my shame has me sparring for a fight
This town ain’t big enough for me and me tonight

My ego’s on the altar now
Escaping through the flames somehow
I took so long to realise
That loving equals sacrifice

I’m left defending
These hollow wins
But this trip is ending
Where freedom begins

And now my fear leaves one more unfinished song
I’ll hide in here till the critics’ pens have gone.
