There goes my phone again, ringing and ringing
I won't take your calls, blocked your whole family off
Say what you want, you can't hurt me more
I know my worth and I will no longer listen to your manipulating words
Yes I am hurt, I'm only human
This is my way of defusing
Better than sipping syrup and popping pills thinking of a million ways to get rich just to feel that thrill
It's sad how some people are so poor all they have is money
You really thought getting rich quick was doing something
And now you sit there in your cell hoping no one tells your tales
It's okay though, can't say you didn't know
You've been there plenty of times boy
quit your crying
And stop with the lying, that I ain't buying shit
I gave my last fuck a while back and what did you do with it
I must admit, you act well
Too bad you can't act right though
Some days it's hard to tell what role you'll play
I can do stupid but I won't be fooled
So now I am removing myself
You're going through it but I am too
We all are
It's no longer about just you
I will keep you in my prayers and hope you're guided well, but I can't continue to hurt myself
That's who I blame
I'll be okay and I know for you I can say the same
