(When I first got into magic yeah)
When I first got into magic it was an underground phenomenon
If I shot my full load with the first hand I played
Hangin' with the David Blaines
Smiles full of razor blades
I got outta that game
I talked till I'm red in my face
I rocked till I'm outta my range
I played through the pain
Refraining from commenting on the lame compliments
Even one-fifths of some of this ****
I'm leavin' naysayers stumped like rain forests
I'm not revealing any tricks of the trade

Now I'm givin' them a glimpse and I guess I'm sittin' in the middle of an unread book
Never been missed
What did you miss
Funny I'm serving the sentence of solitary confinement
I'm just wondering where my time went
And every single assistant I ever had got stored in half
Cause see I never payed attention but I can't afford to laugh (word?)
And an autograph from my cats (Ok)
So all I ask is volunteers from the crowd
When I say hip (what do I say)
And I'll respect it (yes!)
In a flair for the dramatic exit
(Oh) The self-destructive things that I do for entertainment
You're broken heart is my pallet
You were disownin' your talent
And I bought this house off my parents (uhh)
I see the hair on my back (I see the hair on my back)
His poems versus better raps
What's worth remembering
The size of my manhood

Now I'm givin' them a glimpse and I guess I'm sittin' in the middle of an unread book
Never been missed
What did you miss
But none of this is gettin' told in confidence I reckon

I clip your wings to fit you in
Shapeshifting reptilian
Orphanages started offering tortures to abortion clinics (abortion clinics)
And a morgue of lady friends
Good Gods adrogenous
But looks can kill
Put me in a special kind of case that only breaks if
The vault is vacant
I called my agent
I let him know that I'm goin' nowhere
If he leaves tonight then he might just help me find it
Not his
Holding the future hostage
A new respect and understanding of bartenders and locksmiths
But I'm not precise enough
On an amateur level

(Escape, escape)
Escape Artist
Escape Artist
Escape Artist
But there ain't no magic in the breakdown baby
Ain't no magic in the breakdown baby
Ain't no magic in the breakdown baby

You're scared to shoot me in the heart
Uhh!
I gotta bulletproof heart
I'll never fall in love with you
If you got glass so long too
