The Song: What Makes A Narcissist Tick (A Comment on a Modern Plague)

The other day I received an email from a man who listened to one of my YouTube videos about Narcissism/Emotional Manipulation.  He described that his healing journey from a narcissistic partner included writing songs.  This song, captures the mental and emotional capacity of a narcissist.  It is sweetly honest and painful.  I really respect Mr. Payne for his talented depiction of what what probably hurt him so badly.

What Makes A Narcissist Tick (A Comment on a Modern Plague)

©Words and music by Doug Payne 2007

I hide I can not relate
I put on a face and I shut the gate.
I wont confide. I can not debate.
I wont decide. I procrastinate.
You cant reach my soul.
It’s down a deep dark hole
and if you love me too well,
I’ll make your life hell.

So well I’ve lived this lie.
No one can tell. Not even I.
My baby’s got the right to ask,
but i wont stop and take off the mask.

You cant reach my soul.
It’s down a deep dark hole
and if you jump in this well
I’ll male your life hell.

If someone tries to touch my heart
show they care the trouble will sart.
My greatest fear are her loving eyes
and tender hands across my disguise.

She cant reach my soul.
It’s down a deep lonely hole
and if she jump in this well
I’ll make her life hell.

I’d like to feel with you.
To laugh and cry and see things through
We should have it made
if I could only end this charade.

You can’t reach my soul
It’s down a deep lonely hole
and if you jump in this well
I’ll make your live hell.

If you jump in this well
Ill make your life hell.

Nah NAh Nah NAh Nah.
