All I've seen in me is this gaping divide in me//But I'm changing in spite of me to a man I can stand to see in the mirror, some light in me//Look in my eyes, they don't lie to me//When I see me I see a giant who's been playing hie and seek, as it happens I'm finding me//It seems I've been in the gutter, no wonder people utter their accounts of how I ain't amounted to nothing, and how I messed up every opportunity I was given and all the dumb luck//But I'm dumbstruck that some of them still pretend to be my friends, punks//I've been stuck, I've been blaming my dad and mom and my God for every page on the map where I got lost//'Cause it's not drawn quite the way that I had expected//Then life threw me out like a pass//Thank God he intercepted//I was headed in the wrong direction//I was a mess then//And destiny doesn't mean a damned thing unless it's manifested//Tell me, what good is talent without balance?//Check it, it's all for appearances like glasses with plastic lenses, yeah it's true//I may seem like a hypocrate to simpletons who can't see how my world is spinning now and how I'm limmitless//I thank my best of friends who have all had my back and yes my actions have tested them to the limmits but they kept their heads//I guess that's just a part of what friendship is//And I'd do the same for them if eve they're in distress//If ever they find that their eill to live is just getting less//And that goes for my mom and my dad and my sisters too, you know I love you//YES//and I know who I am, Donald Bonelli, the man//And that's exactly why i go by my own name when I rap//Followed by Ravens and black cats//Insane? I guess I'm mad, or could it just be a manifestation of my past fam, watching my back after a long ass stretch of fighting these demons?//And you might need a reason to fight back but I don't need one//This animal is mad hungry but you don't have to feed him, just watch him

I drove a hundred fifty in my Century toward a cliff, with the pedal to the floor ready to make my exit swift//I've been broke, auto shaking nearly as heavy as my hands//Feeling Goddamned cause I ain't got a leg on which to stand//Demanding manna having a sense of entitlement and if ever heaven don't answer immediately I flip//A killer a villain//Liable to go through the ceiling//Traded a trillion touches cause I was chasing a feeling//Now my ind is racing and reeling, I'm chasing that healing, bass and the rhythm keep me on pace//No annealing, I'm heating up//Like that NBA jam, I'm going flambe//Damn there ain't no way a hater can stand it when I'm acting//So get out of this kitchen quick and just quit your bitching//I used to be blind, limmited, but then I caught the vision//See me switching up the hand that I use when I'm pitching and catch me if you can//Turn up the volume and just listen
