a grin that feels familiar,
a sleight of hand so similar
the grass is always greener i guess
but does that mean anything can be the best?
or is this all searching for a comfortable meaning

well shit, i hope not

saw all those movies in my pubic teething
celebrities always looking out for director dream teasing
if i could find a way that reality might please me
then i could do away with the inbetween so boring

it's all a fault of my own
so much input it's hard to control
the subjectivity of an art imitating life, permeating the whole
essence of what it is to be real; be real with you.
i'll never be reynolds or gosling
but that doesn't mean you'll never think i'm awesome

you know my name is Biiko
but they keep calling me Mr. Grumbles
well, maybe they think that's all i do with no real clue
how i deal with troubles

live a trailer and breathe all the deleted scenes
everything is easier when you have that edited sheen
cause no one wants to see
the hero drop a deuce or do dry cleaning
so take the best of the best
and let me compare it with anxiety and doubt
self confidence revisions
maybe i will, maybe i won't coin flip decisions

never say "let's work through this" and always go with "take it or leave it."

what a perfect recipe for bullshit.

to be fair, i sang this line at least two dozen times
before i chose take seventeen as the best sample i could provide
it's just my story is filled to the brim with mistakes and typos
so it's not that i'm above it,
just i don't know a better way to make you care
