Unsentimental,
Sure of myself,
You stand this close to me,
In the eyes of the Grocery,

Remember well,
Could you tell,
In the shadow of your first attack,
You said baby we don't speak of that,

Lazy and safe,
(Born in two way)?
I pretended I was horrified,
Of the court yard gate,
You're not a victim,
Nostalgic for garbage,
I could blame it on your mother's head,
But I know that I was never fair,

Driving around,
Sure of it now,
Like the future was suppose to be,
In the blocks uptown,
I remember,
But if I forgotten,

I was questioning and looking back,
Like a real aristocrat,



Unsentimental,
Sure of myself,
You stand this close to me,
In the eyes of the Grocery,

Remember well,
Could you tell,
In the shadow of your first attack,
You said baby we don't speak of that,

Lazy and safe,
(Born in two way)?
I pretended I was horrified,
Of the court yard gate,
You're not a victim,
Nostalgic for garbage,
I could blame it on your mother's head,
But I know that I was never fair,

Driving around,
Sure of it now,
Like the future was suppose to be,
In the blocks uptown,
I remember,
But if I forgotten,

I was questioning and looking back,
Like a real aristocrat,
