While you’re too busy being two-faced
I’ve got one face with many layers.
Take me at face value, or take a detour,
reforged, like Ant Man upon my deep pores.
Tryna get 1UP, that’s a weak score,
cos we’re living with a single life, ain’t no respawn.
Yeah there’ll be pitfalls, but that’s ok man.
Pick yourself up and start again, like Rayman.
But don’t be obsessing, like man SWE with Tekken,
not everything is perfect, so what you reckon?
Bout snatching victory from the jaws of defeat...
now that’s great.
So don’t be sniping, if you ain’t got a Halo.
Just a modern take, on some Christian say-so.
There’s a time and place for stories, be it pub or a page,
but don’t be acting up like the world’s a stage.
Fuck the law of the jungle, deforestation is here.
Cos even Will won’t shake spears if a viper is near.
