  • I don't look at myself in the mirror because I'm a narcissist
    I simply like to watch myself exist...
    Now I'm in a fog and mist...
    Now my reflection is anonymous
    Ponder this!

    I've seen a reflection of my soul in the store window
    Caught in limbo 'cause I was dressed all in Timbo's
    Having fantasies of playing Polo with Ralph Lauren on a Tommy Hill
    And my paper thin spirit was still grieving from the Versace kill in Florida
    Opened the door to the store and I walked down the corridor
    to see they had a blow out sale on Nautica
    I've always been a Lord of the button down Flies
    Being they were half-priced, I pass 'em on by looking for Levis
    But Guess what? All my favorite clothing lines and hip designs
    Were being liquidized and it made me sick to my eyes
    I don't understand, when I had no ends, the price was quick to rise
    I'd buy a pair of trends even if it didn't fit my size
    Purchase a surplus of fads from merchants whose ads
    Made these cheap ass fabrics that were so worthless and sad
    Just look priceless, they used unethical devices to attack my sense of
    self-worth during my prepubescent crisis
    It fed into my insecurities, so instead of being righteous
    I want everyone to see me like this
    It's all about who looks the nicest
    Ice is falling off my Rolie onto my body, shoot!
    I hope to hell it doesn't melt and ruin my Armani suit
    While I'm sweatin' this,some kid who doesn't got any loot
    Is buying my necklace along with my same exact khakis and army boots
    What?! This is blasphemous!
    Since Adidas tried changing its logo
    there ain't been nothing as wack as this
    It's probably a stunt being pulled by Animal Rights activists
    Because of all that Third World country garbage but I'm a pacifist
    So while these monkeys sweat over my name brands that exchange hands
    From enslaved lands, I wonder if I'm the same man
    Without reward...for what I bought but CAN'T still afford
    This is the type of self-realization that might have killed the Lord
    I didn't mind working free as a walking billboard
    But now I want my money the ice spilled and poured
    Onto the floor I did see a distorted reflection of my Nike hat
    I don't know how others might react
    For me it was an unsightly act that helped me get my psyche back
    I stood 5 feet back, afraid that it might strike me like Shaclack clack!
    Ya'll think I'm kidding? It's not big thing
    What I seen made my heart hurt, stomach turn, throat burn, teeth cringe
    spine tingle, and ribs sting
    I noticed that the swoosh symbol was nothing but a whip in mid-swing..

    I don't look at myself in the mirror because I'm a narcissist
    I simply like to watch myself exist...
    I'm in a fog and mist...
