about

My first original rap song. The beat is very electronic, done in a quasi-drumstep style.

I can be O.G., for Obnoxious Guy
I can be O.G., for Obvious Guile
I thought I had it made, but all the while
everyone around me’s calling “foul, foul, foul”

I know what I need, and I need it now
please fill the hole in my ego somehow
give me an inch and I’ll take a mile
I’m all out of bounds, I’m foul, foul, foul



I haven’t done this in a long time
It might be the last in a long line
of decisions that may have made this song rhyme
but quite frankly, I’m ashamed to call mine

the self loathing is real - can’t show the real me
am I showing what I feel? - you couldn’t deal with what you’d see
I gotta retreat, gotta try to be
something that I think will make you pleased, cause

sometimes, it’s so easy to hide the truth
even though your whole life is the proof
of things that simply stare you in the face
and sting your eyes, like mace in the face

of the ones you love - can I set a new pace?
fits like a glove - can these lines be traced?
back to yours truly - they’re sayin’ some sooth
and the whole entire band is playin’ your tune, now



I can be O.G., for Obnoxious Guy
I can be O.G., for Obvious Guile
I thought I had it made, but all the while
everyone around me’s calling “foul, foul, foul”

I know what I need, and I need it now
please fill the hole in my ego somehow
give me an inch and I’ll take a mile
I’m all out of bounds, I’m foul, foul, foul



I micromanage your responses so I know I’m wanted
you flatter when I’m honest so I guess I’ll guess I’ll flaunt it
in an undercover way I’ll try to make you say
what I want to hear like an act in play

I wanna script it, can’t miss a single digit
so when my number’s up at the end of the day
I’ll have a prescription for when things get rigid
and all of my bumbles can look like a good thing

now I know I might be beatin’ on myself
but honest, I’m just eatin’ what I’m grabbin’ off the shelf
you might be teasin’ but what you tell me
is just another lie I know you’re tryin to sell me

shut me up and send me away
I know that’s really what you want to say
every single day I step in the fray
that’s why a simple conversation’s what I’m afraid of



speculate, manipulate, I gotta regulate
like an OCD patient, can’t eat what’s on his plate
100 different ways to self-medicate
I’ll take ADD agents just to get a passing grade, cause

all I really want to know is who I am inside
I need all of you to come and identify
every single day I gotta try to rectify
I CAN’T DO IT! NO! I CAN’T TAKE THESE DREAMS AT NIGHT



I can’t take these dreams - I don’t know who I am
I’m not what I seem - my life’s a sham
I wanna know where I fit - don’t even know if I can
Jesus, please help me quit, take this weapon from my hands



I can be O.G., for Obnoxious Guy
I can be O.G., for Obvious Guile
I thought I had it made, but all the while
everyone around me’s calling “foul, foul, foul”

I know what I need, and I need it now
please fill the hole in my ego somehow
give me an inch and I’ll take a mile
I’m all out of bounds, I’m foul, foul, foul

I can’t look at the child I once was
without fear of the foul thing I’ve become
I don’t wanna use my heart like a gun
or live my life always on the run

I want your praise
I want this foul thing like it’s the latest craze
when you start as a kid you can’t quit the addiction
God, I don’t wanna live my life like a fiction
