[Verse 1: Mike Shinoda (Chester Bennington)]

When I pretend, everything is what I want it to be

I looked exactly like what you always wanted to see

When I pretend, I can't forget about the criminal I am

Stealing second after second just cause I know I can, but

I can't pretend that this is they way it'll stay, I'm just

(Trying to bend the truth)

I can't pretend of who you want me to be so I'm

(Lying my way from)

[Hook 1: Jay-Z]

If you feelin like a pimp nigga, go and brush your shoulders off

Ladies is pimps too, go and brush your shoulders off

Niggas is crazy baby, don't forget that boy told you

Get, that, dirt off your shoulder

[Verse 2: Jay-Z]

I probably owe it to y'all, probably be locked by the force

Tryin to hustle some things, that go with the Porsche

Feelin' no remorse, feelin like my hand was forced

Middle finger to the law, nigga grippin' my balls

Said the ladies they love me, from the bleachers they screamin'

All the ballers is bouncin they like the way I be leanin

All the rappers be hatin, off the track that I'm makin

But all the hustlers they love it just to see one of us make it

Came from the bottom the bottom, to the top of the pops

Nigga London, Japan and I'm straight off the block

Like a running back, get it man, I'm straight off the block

I can run it back, nigga cause I'm straight with the Roc

[Hook 1: Jay-Z]

[Bridge: Jay-Z] x4

You gotta get, that, dirt off your shoulder

[Verse 3: Jay-Z]

Your homey Hov' in position, in the kitchen with soda

I just whipped up a watch, tryin' to get me a Rover

Tryin' to stretch out the coca, like a wrestler, yes sir

Keep the Heckler close, you know them smokers'll test ya

But like, fifty-two cards when I'm, I'm through dealin

Now fifty-two bars come out, now you feel 'em

Now, fifty-two cars roll out, remove ceiling

In case fifty-two broads come out, now you chillin

With a boss bitch of course S.C. on the sleeve

At the 40/40 club, ESPN on the screen

I paid a grip for the jeans, plus the slippers is clean

No chrome on the wheels, I'm a grown-up for real, chill

[Verse 3: Mike Shinoda (Chester Bennington)]

Yeah, I remember what they taught to me

Remember condescending took for who I ought to be

Remember listenin to all of that and this again

So I pretented up a person who was fitting in

And now you think this person really is me and I'm

(Trying to bend the truth )

But the more I push the more I'm pulling away cause I'm

(Lying my way from)

[Hook 2: Chester Bennington (Jay-Z & Mike Shinoda)]

You (Nah, no turning back now)

I wanna be pushed aside so let me go

(Nah, no turning back now)

Let me take me back my life

I'd rather be all alone

(No turning back now)

And anywhere on my own, cause I can see

(Nah, no turning back now)

The very worst part of you

The very worst part of you

It's ME!!

[Bridge: Mike Shinoda] x4

This isn't what I wanted to be

I never thought that what I said would have you running from me

Like this

[Hook 2: Chester Bennington (Jay-Z & Mike Shinoda)]
