    It is what it ain't
    What it is, is something else
    Appearing to be closer
    While staying far away
    Serious intentions
    Disguised by games you play

    Cleaning up
    What you mess up
    Using a bucket
    When all you need is a cup

    Silent words
    Spoken so loud
    Gaining support
    From an unsuspecting crowd
    No depth too low
    To where you go

    Prying on those
    Who may be emotionally lame
    Impressed are the weak
    With your ego-feeding game

    You make up the rules
    As you go along
    Changing the tune
    As you sing a different song

    I too will listen
    Checking out all you do
    Shaking my head
    Feeling sorry for you

    For what you give
    Is what you will get
    Ten times over
    That's even better yet

    As you get older
    You'll look over your shoulder
    No more smiling fools
    Not one single friend
    You gonna get yours
    Before the end

    Giving you time to feel pain and suffer
    You'l be all alone
    No suckers
    No Buffer

    True to your mentality
    You'll think life threw you a curve
    When in reality
    You only got what you deserve

    BE
