    You see me for who I am, know that I do what I must
    When it gets down to it with this identity your one of the few I trust

    I save the day you bless me and say you believe in me
    But you don’t believe fully cause the mask is all you see

    When without it my actions are still the same
    You see the shirt, tie, & glasses thinking I’m tame

    That was my aim for the world but never for your heart
    Cause it was you that saw right through my disguise right from the start

    You saw the man behind soul but choose to look away
    Until I put on my cape and fly away

    The suit don’t make me either way I’m bullet proof
    All that is seen when you look at me is a goof

    Why don’t you love me the way you love him
    I mean me can’t you see you making my light go dim

    Been beat out of getting the girl by myself?
    Save the world all day but who’s gonna give me help

    Mask get out the way let me get the girl just this one time
    Cause the actions she fell in love with were mine

    My heart was the guide the mask just a distraction
    Thinking you loving me need planned for this reaction

    That you love a dream that I could never compete
    So I tell you black soul I admit defeat

    You get the credit for my mistakes
    Forgotten about you’re the one that will be great

    You’re the body I’m the shadow I know when to step back
    Just remember that I’m the reason where you are were you at

    So enter yin exit yang you don’t want the whole set
    So I’ll give the world soul less of me no regret

    The world wants a hero to bad for the average man
    So I stand on the top of this mountain my mask in hand

    Supply and demand gonna give the people the man in the black mask
    So here I come real, deflecting all trash

    You will never no the whole story just enough to make you feel complete
    So next time you see me this superman soul will be all that you will meet

    Black soul

    Your Gift and Your Curse
    Dont feel the worse

    Noone will ever know what it is that makes me tick
    To go without a word from you makes me sick

    I get so excited everytime he's comes through
    Even tho I know its you

    I began to see you and your mask in anotha light
    And the real man I see now is bright

    Got me thinking about you when I shouldnt
    When it comes to that day I know you couldnt

    Touch me nor Kiss me
    Love me down to my feet

    I for once wouldnt ask where Blacksoul was
    I couldnt even ask for you to give him a buzz

    Because now I see you and him are one in the same
    The man in you not lame

    You been saving the day for others now its time for me to save you
    If you dont have a clue

    My heart is only for you
    My soul is only for you
    My mind is only for you
    My body could be only for you

    But these things you will never know
    Because I didnt give the man in you the chance to grow

    But Im saying before all if I could have one wish
    I would want for me to be the only fish

    In the sea you would save
    Say Im sorry hopefully you forgave

    Me for lusting for the suit
    Into me Peach the fruit

    And ask that when that time come you would let me know the Man
    Not the Superman

    and hopefully you'll not feel that the Gift you have
    Is not a Curse!!!!!!!!!!!1
