    Never had a Man like me

    Who can you call when you watch the sky, high?
    Mile high emergencies, species like in unknown lye
    Who art it in how thou die?
    I lifted you by the Achilles of your soul to be Yao high
    Hit you with information; spoke through your narthex, my conversation
    Loving you when you was hating, kept you close to me like probation
    Probing my mind, feelings were scarred frying pans, burnt from natural gas
    That emitted from cerebral pipes and came out your ***
    ****ted on me, regurgitated flows, blowing me off, why
    The breeze blows by, door closes as you pass by
    Without looking, irresponsible for my sponsor posed to be
    Irreconcilable, unreliable, lied to me u, love is undeniable
    Trial with you, at your side, no lawyer fees, no transaction, no automated deductions
    I stayed loyal no matter what the function’
    At every junction, shared my last crunch n’ munchin
    Stepped on like a munchkin, pacifying in mind why u punching
    Ate the food you catered to me at the luncheon
    East coast don’t it mean sumthin, guess it means nothing

    Nothing to you, never had a man like me

    Every night after work, weary, beard cuts my epidermis
    Thirst, I guess I’ll die if I depend on you for a thermos
    Lyricist I spit this, watch protesters burn this
    I never learned this, try to be earnest; somehow I retreat to the furnace
    Word is cold, ice sickles form braids, crystallize my shades, melt spades
    Slipping off course on my escapades, like spoiled marinades
    On steaks that break, bleed due to my mistakes, at stake
    At the stake, stabbed with a stake, shredded and raked
    Greenery, foliage is destroyed at the scenery
    Like a builder that didn’t design for me
    A tree, I grow old, circles around retinas tell age
    Paper returns to its essence in his old age
    Maybe old age, reminiscent upon past events, occurrences
    Should have tooked my time to learn this
    Game, coaches tried to reach me, teach me the defensive schemes
    All I could see was blurry colors, distracted cus my pants split from the scenes

    Don’t wanna be embarrassed, try to hide the seams, my heart
    I retreat to locker room early, shoot some darts
    Think to myself like a quarterback who threw picks
    The lineman who missed a block, cuz the tight end was sidetracked
    Tell me, will you hand me the baton when I touch the track?
