    Bet you thought I'd care

    Bet you thought I'd feel bad

    But man, I swear, that attempt was so sad


    You say you hate me

    So tell me

    Why you still looking my way?

    Keep my name out ya mouth, bruh

    I'd bet you'd have nothing to say

    'Cause from then til now

    I own your thoughts

    Like the sun does the day

    But like your words, they're trash

    So Ima throw 'em away


    Your insults, they're weak son

    Just like that thing you call a personality

    Scratch that, you have none

    You're void, just like your reality

    Keep sleeping, stay snoozing

    You and ya boys all losing


    I'd say, you think you know

    But I don't even know if you think

    Bet you've perceived less in your lifetime

    Than I do before a single blink


    From the inside out

    A Phake Philosopher

    All you've given is rotten

    Wait til life catches up

    And leaves you

    Like you should me

    Alone and forgotten

    Ya boys validate you

    On all you do and all you say

    Y'all stay stroking each others "egos"

    Funny, I ain't know you swung that way

    But I don't lose no sleep

    Not for losers, nor for creeps

    Keep messin' around with me, you gon' find I don't play


    If you looked exactly like your soul

    Like the sickness you spew

    I bet you still wouldn't understand

    Why you're told you have no clue

    You're an infinite joke

    And you ain't even funny

    Like the corniest punchline

    By a comic and his dummy

    Too bad there's no curtains

    No calling for another act

    It's your same humorless theme

    Back to back to back


    There ain't no way in this world

    Someone like you could be taught

    You thinking you got it to teach

    Oh I bet...

    You thought

    (Continued...)

    Low life, no life

    Bummin'

    Buzzing around where you ain't wanted

    You're nothin'

    Bet you thought you was more

    Check again 'cause you ain't

    A loser, you is

    Nowhere near a saint

    Tell yourself you got it

    Live in your delusion you liar

    All fake ish

    Eventually comes to fire

    Fired off from your mouth

    Straight to oblivion, unknown

    As worthless as your mind... your thoughts and your poems
