    [Verse 1: Black Thought]
    I drew a 2 of hearts from a deck of cards
    A stock trick from my empty repertoire
    Another hopeless story never read at all
    I'm better off looking for the end
    Where the credits are
    It's a pain living life against the grain
    I'm looking back and y'all look the same
    Troy, Mark, and little what's his name
    Memory is rerunning it all
    It's the flight of my fall and it's right on the wall

    I remember
    Can you remember?
    How it was
    I do
    Remember, do you?

    [Verse 2]
    I used to ride the train to the same two stops
    And look at the graffiti on the rooftops
    Like the same song playing on the jukebox
    Joint called "Faded Polaroids In A Shoebox"
    Regardless to what the cadence is
    It can't be forgotten like old acquaintances
    I realize how depressing of a place it is
    And when I notice my reflection whose face it is


    [Musical break]


    [Verse 3]
    It's only human to express the way you really feel
    But that same humanity is my Achilles' heel
    A leper can't change his spots and never will
    So I'm forever ill
    Now I can never chill
    What's keeping me from breaking out like Benadryl
    When my baptism of fire resulted in a kill
    Sometimes it's as cut and dry as a business deal
    You gotta cause the blood of a close friend to spill
    But you remember still Show less
