Real Talk

I feel so alone
Even when people are around
But I still keep it moving
Like I’m coming off the rebound
And the world is taking shots at me
For years, even the people that I’ve known
So can you blame me for the change? 
That’s why I depend on my own
It’s the world verse one man
So I got to play zone
And this ain’t The Book of Eli
But I sense what’s going on
The weather is so hot
But the world is so cold
Forget all the pressure
This man will never fold
And yes umm, 
I know there’s a lot to say
I’ve been homeless before
I won’t let anybody put me back in that place
I’m going to feed mine
Even if I got to take it from your plate
What you going to do about it? 
You can say it to my freaking face
You can say I am a disgrace
Cause I heard it my whole life
I take your rights and say they’re wrong
Turn my wrongs and make them right
And if you have a problem
You can bring them to the light
You fake people are camouflage to the dark
As a predator you stay in my sights
And I’m happy if you’re offended
Cause that’s the way I have to be 	
I’m sorry you won’t make it to the top
Cause I refuse to accept defeat
I’m so high
I can’t even be reached
So call me a star cause that’s the view
When you are looking at my feet
And I can keep going
Going on more pages
But the fact of the matter is
That you can never ever change this
And watch how you stare yall
Go ahead and change your faces
Cause this is not Face Off
But I can leave you all faceless
