audio & lyrics: A real fantasy (“I’m Justified!”)

A real fantasy

Can a story be the real me? Can the real me be a story?

There can be stories about me. I can tell some of those stories.

But which one is the real me? Which one is just a story?
Is there a myth that I worship? That’s the story of the real me!
Is there a story that I worship? That’s the myth of the real me!
Can a myth be the real me? Can the real me be a story?
Is there a myth that I dismiss? As just a myth or a story?
If it’s not the one I worship, then it must be a heresy.
If it’s not the myth I worship, then it must be a blasphemy.
When I tell the story of the real me, you can be part of my story.
My story weaves you out of me. You’re just a role in my fantasy.
I’ll make you the arrogant skeptic, the infidel, the crazy.
A hero needs a villain, like the end needs a beginning
and a story needs a traitor, like a myth needs a creator
so I’ll tell you what to do next, then later call it sinning
(during your punishment)
I’m justified                     in my story
You’re sacrificed          for my glory
I’m justified                     by my history
my mythology               my real fantasy
You justify                       my reaction
I’m trapped by               your resentment
You limit me                   in my story
Your curiosity               could destroy me
I’m justified                     You’re sacrificed
I’m justified                      by your vanity
I’m justified                      I’m justified                   I’m justified                    in my tragedy
