lyrics

Hot damn son where should I start/ on my sleeves I was wearing my heart/ My beliefs I was tearing apart/ cause she was my religion I declared as an art/ Idolized her, itemized her/ fiend for the esteem I secrete & supplied her/ for I too am to blame for I used her/ to view her's a living proclaim I'm not a loser/ To walk next to her you'd understand/ to be her man most think that you'd have to throw a check to her/ I mean dog, I fooled off the might I get/ when men would drool off the sight of the chick that I'm with/ excite's the word to describe being next to something that's desired/ to possess requires obsession/ I need her in my life so she I invest in/

Chorus
Superficial, super, loving

Most things being chased don't want to be/ she keeps a pace where her face stays in front of me/ what a great catch, don't let her get to near/ Biggest fear is that my interest would disappear/ I ain't escape yet, but in time I'll find something to climb for the challenge of it mere/ sweet nothings in the ear of my next here/ my dear in the making I make tears/ from the faces of beauty I've turned ugly/ I want you to want me to be unclear/ I'm so good at courting & yet keeping/ I ain't quit perfected I'm just horrid/ steady deceiving myself/ believing I ain't leaving for somebody else/ I cycle I just can't get through/ I love her right now though, superficial/

Chorus
