MANIPULATION People try to manipulate I don't think people should anticipate The good coming out of being used By people on the streets who like to abuse I hate being used, abused, and I blow a fuse I choose to not manipulate I'll do my own thing I'll just flip your plate I'll give you a sting People try to rip off elderly people It's so wrong, your wondering who? I've seen it happen and done before I just kept to myself, don't want to see any more Life is different Don't know what you'll run into I'm sure you'll make it through and through Wake up the next day facing the same thing I want to fly away Just using my own wings I run into stuff where people try to get money It isn't funny, you won't out do me People can't take no for a simple answer It's annoying how their dumb as a hamster Manipulation is not the way to go To get what you want, take your own road Just be bold and do what you have to Don't be cold thinking you'll slack too Get what you get but be straight up No need to sweat if your not hated enough Just don't manipulate
