Paper In The Bottom Of A Songwriter's Trashcan

I'm just an ex-heroin addict from Delaware, what do I know?
I know I got the flow!
Might f*ck around and read the dictionary so my vocabulary can grow!
Hit em with some big words in these verses
Like, hold up one minute
Ok, google what are other words for phenomenal
Shit, how do you even spell phenomenal?
Bitch, I don't know but I can demonstrate it!
Hit em like
Pause- allow me to expand on that last word
My past is absolutely scandalous
It's so hard to handle this
But I continuously look up to the sky
I pray and ask for peace of mind
Then I get on with it
I've been working on forgiveness
Just to go and mess it up
Oh look! Another mistake!
Need another take
Right after this coffee break
Please stay tuned
Something like, picture The Olsen twins both committed to Mos Def
Cuz it's I against I
And that bitch is doomed!
