Confession Of A Ghostwriter
Everything Isn't Always As It Seems
At your verbal battles,
I play the shadows,
even though I'm the creator of the tales you tattle.
No one will ever know,
that not only do you not write -what you recite, but also,
that you don't even possess your own flow.
As long as you and I know what's real,
I could care less about how others feel,
even though my name isn't associated with your record deal,
I still get half of that mill'.
In your phone,
you have me listed under unknown,
in mine, I have you listed as my rap clone.
I'm just fine with our arrangement,
because from where I sit,
I'm 95% responsible for that platinum plus hit.
Take me out of the equation,
and there goes your power of persuasion,
doing it your way is a thought you think during that heavy drinking occasion.
I'm that safe bet,
and though we have never officially met,
connecting with me is a decision you'll never grow to regret.
I brought about clarity,
turned hope into prosperity.
You were lost but found,
the second you decided to pick me up, and the moment you put the pen down.
I studied this trade,
learned from the mistakes that were made,
and for my effort, I received more than just a passing grade.
I graduated the best in my class,
this is how you can go from last to first so fast,
your bright future is due to my dark past.
And there's never a need to feel some type of way,
because there's a hundred more just like you that pay me to write what they say.
