  • Yeah, the child in the mirror was homely
    So he learned early on how to switch into low-key
    Little person, observant and accurate
    Grew the skills to argue and the passion to back it with
    Kick over the blocks just to re-build them
    'Cause mom and pop used to pop
    Sound familiar?
    Daddy had to leave, but Mama kept hurtin'
    So we stepped up to help
    Be an anger and a burden
    And right around the same time
    Started noticing girls, but they wouldn't pay him any mind
    And if they ever did, he got nervous
    You shoulda seen him practice on his hand for his first kiss
    Even though he was too young to hunt and gather
    Hungry puppy had to learn how to front and swagger
    It didn't matter, it was all self-esteem
    At 16, you only needed one on your team
    And mom and dad was never gettin' back together
    So he was on some "Maybe we gonna make it last forever"
    Basically married right out of high school
    Five years of getting high and fightin' at a drive-thru
    And when he hit 21, they made a son
    But on his 22nd birthday, the relationship was done
    Now he's got a best friend instead of a wife
    But he feels like he stole the best years of her life
    After that, it was one co-dependant to the next
    A lotta love, a lotta hate and a little bit of great sex
    Self-learning in between the self-loathing
    Strangled in a cycle
    Can't feel yourself choking
    Some of them would overlap
    Some of them would double-back
    None of them deserved to be exposed
    To the trouble that he posed
    Strike one? Not even out of fear
    He don't even do rough sex
    You bite him and he's outta here
    Make no mistake he puts the man in manipulate
    And he's attracted to the women that reciprocate
    Y'all can kick karma 'till it's getting late
    Until Mama's little drama is the topic of the big debate
    And nowadays the confidence is off the page
    'Cause women are attracted to that clown on the stage
    He's only in town for a handful of hours
    But Repunzel wanna come down and dance in the flowers
    Wanna make a smile? Wanna make a laugh?
    Wanna make up for the mistakes in the past?
    Wanna act like he doesn't know better
    If payback's a bitch he'll be in debt forever
    Insecure, Impatient
    Temporary gratification, self-validation
    That's what it's made of
    It's all true and it's the only reason he's even talking to you

    You can try to fix my broken wings
    You can know all the words to the songs I sing
    But you don't need to know what's wrong with me
    Unless you think you're gonna come home with me
