[Sage Francis]
More than two faced, I've got at least six with cheap tricks
I use battin' rouge to battle crews who don't like the remix
Cuddle with me quick, get befuddled and sea sick
The beat kicks, my belly feels empty I want a person there
Haven't been to church in years, right now that's the setting
It's upsetting how plastic my mask is getting
Covered by lots of perfume, never coming out of my closet of costumes
After that occurs, time gets consumed
Until my head is cured I'm heading for pedicures and manicures
to pop the question I'll let you in on the answer..
A phony life with a trophy wife, menthol cigarettes and cancer
Smoke and Mirrors
So sophisticated
So cool
I AM..
The one the wake up next to even if it's not the one they went to bed with
I squish my feet until they crunch, but I'm unable to make these sandals fit
And I won't forget it, she does it during the opening credits
I like the smell of coke, get it? I powder my nose
I'm getting snow plowed, I KNOW
I just applied blush and look surprised
Time out, I'm in a tanning booth... reading Danielle Steel
Waiting for them to fall for my sad trick I stop, drop and kneel
I'm not real, but I've got FEELINGS...
To have my chest enhanced I pant in dresses but never dress in pants
Sipping on Listerine, Mr. Clean don't like the smell of nicotine
Smoke and Mirrors
So sophisticated
So cool
I AM..
