--verse 1
who tried to take the songs i sang, and use 'em for your personal gain
ya didn't think i was on to your shady schemes, to steal people's dreams and
who took advantage of my broken heart, and made playin' chicks a work of art
so i flipped the script, made a record out of it, and that hit'll make me a star
so tell me baby, why you cryin'?
When you the one that was lyin'?
Yo tell ya wifey i said “hi”
one day she'll realize that you're no good
so take
all the money that i made ya; ya know, the bread ya thought i should've paid ya
mr. incredibly fake
you were a big mistake
but you shall remain...

(nameless) i shouldn't even say this...but i gotta get it off my chest
i'll protect your identity
hushed for too long; it's my time to speak
(nameless) you know who you are, and though you may get far
some things will never change
you'll always forever and ever remain nameless

--verse 2
and who could forget about you
cried wolf, said he cheated, when you did it too
ya even tried to start a teeny little fire
but it only burned you
oh my!
look how the tables turned, i hope it's a lesson learned
and how ya lost ya little j-o-b (ya secret's safe with me) but
truth sets ya free
so tell me girl, why you cryin?
When you the one that was lyin?
Yo tell ya hubby i said, “hi”
one day he'll realize that you're no good so...
congratulations on the baby;
a momma's boy, daddy's maybe...
hey lady don't blame me
i won't say it
but you shall remain


--verse 3
and what about those of you who use Jesus to hide all the dirt you do?
Ya dress up real nice every Sunday, and turn around and act shady on a Monday
you got the nerve to list your name among the needy
Daddy's preachin' and he's gettin' real greedy...
askin' masses for 10% to give his little girl the means to have cash to spend
what's happenin' ?!?!?!?
tell the congregation where all their tithin' went!!!!
but i'm on to ya
ya ain't foolin' me
the church supports ya whole family tree so,
remember when ya said that i was wrong,
When you worship your idols in Babylon?
I can't wait to see the looks on their faces;
they're pointing at you
but for now,
you'll remain
