What's Real?

You think you’re all that

You’re as real as can be

Have you changed your style

Out of screaming envy?

Have you had second thoughts

Because of someone else’s opinion?

I’d never change my mind

Because no one is my dominion

While you follow others

I create my own path

I lead my own life

So you do the math

And when you come running

Trying to bite my style,

I’ll put you in exile

Because you’re foul and in denial
