Everybody wants to be a showman
Yeah they all got another one
Everybody thinks they got a genius
Everybody got me on the run
Sometimes I think they come here
Just so you can say that you can
And I can't get alone in my bathroom
I need to give myself a hand

Ya'll c-c-c-creepin'
Creepin' underneath my skin
**** you and your flashbulbs
Snappin' my picture again
You drank all my whiskey
You stole all my smoke
And you're crowded all around me
Like I got nowhere to go

Eyes are gonna roll back
I'm here to kill time
For you to go I'ma gon' spill
It ain't yo fast train
I'll be the king running near the wheel
I ain't looking to make no deals here no

You keep sticking to me like a prickly porcupine
You're getting your information from the grocery checkout line
Are you through confessing of your little girl obsession
'Cause I was only messing and I had a little time

Eyes are gonna roll back
I'm here to kill time
For you to go I'ma gon' spill
It ain't yo fast train
I'll be the king running near the wheel
I ain't looking to make no deals here no

Eyes are gonna roll back
I'm here to kill time
For you to go I'm a gon' spill
It ain't yo fast train
I'll be the king running near the wheel
I ain't looking to make no deals here no

Eyes are gonna roll back
I'm here to kill time
For you to go I'ma gon' spill
It ain't yo fast train
I'll be the king running near the wheel
I ain't looking to make no deals here no
