1-2- 3

1-2- 3

Take a look at me

Tell me what you see

Verse 1:

Oh no Mr. Blow Blow, I got eyeballs on your M.O

Looking fly on the outside but your innards needing chemo

I got the ammo, I know you’re on the up and up

I see the pictures on Insta, flash, flash, click, click, lock!

Mallorca to Playa Vista, hole up

It’s time for another selfie, chin up

Gotta get the angle just right on your iPhone, duck, duck

Gotta get your girl’s pout locked in, honey pucker up

Take a seat Narcissus, ah, you know it ain’t like that

Everybody thinks you’re cool, you ain’t got it like that

You know the emptiness you feel inside, why you frontin’ like that?

Touche Mr. Broadway gonna keep stuntin’ like that?

Listen my man, how long can you keep this up?

Tied up in knots so tight inside you know you’re fit to pop

Suave and debonair on the outside but on the inside all beat up

Don’t try to keep up with the Joneses anymore, just stop


1-2- 3

1-2- 3

Take a look at me

Tell me what you see

Verse 2:

You’re so vain you appear to be popping

You’re so fly we can see you are coming

Just be upfront, don’t be fronting

Lust of the flesh got a grip on you; you were covered by the blood but it creeped on you

When you’re home alone like Mac Culkin, do you fight the thief when he’s knocking?

Or you open the door and let him come in?

Bible verse and buttock exhibition, what a weird juxtaposition

To go from grass to grace, you don’t need to catch a case

You don’t need to become two-faced

I know sometimes it’s hard to show your real face

Let the son (sun) in, let the light shine, this is night time

Let the father take you to your own place, then people will see your true face

Verse 3:

Hey, hey Ms. Show Show, how you doing today?

I don’t believe we met in the past. My name is Tru and I’m here to sway

Not here to play, know you’re the mistress of the game

Let’s not delay, get to shaking tables, fanning flames

I know you got your act down, social media influencer

You going viral everyday, digital influenza

Likes and tweets got more folk on your case than a solicitor

You clean up everyday, more spick and span than a janitor

Okay, but how is all this working for you

You’re all alone when the lights go out, ain’t nobody talking to you

When you take that makeup off, do you even like you?

Can the real you step up, not the girl in comments and views

It doesn’t have to be this way, you can rest

Don’t have to deal with pressure everyday, life’s not a quest

Living up to expectations is a notorious task

Drop the facade, quit the charade, it’s going to be for the best
