I lost the thread I lost the map
It's not a feeling it's a fact
I had it once I was on track
Why won't it stay? I want it back
I see you there in that magazine
You're looking smart you sound supreme
You got such lip you know the street
You been around you took some heat

You mighta killed you might be cruel
You might be stupid but we love you
You're in the paper you're in the air
You're in my head, you're everywhere

I want it back

You're so extreme, you're feast or famine
You got one mission, just like a salmon
You said in life, mistakes are many
How come you never admit to any?

Are you for real or are you bluffing?
You really get me, famous for nothing
And every morning you got a name
In a world where people all look the same

I want it back

I can't give love, I don't know how
I write in code so you won't know
I was on drugs, I took a nap
I didn't mean it, I want it back

I dreamed again of paradise
I floated steady, it felt so nice
To sell your soul, just think of that
I'm halfway there, I want it back

I want it back
