[Intro]
You know technically
I'm not even really supposed to be here right now
So f*ck it
Might as well make the most of it

[Verse 1]
Feels good
Guess I'm lucky
Some of us don't get a second chance
But I ain't blowing this one
Sh*t I feel like I can do anything now
Who can catch lightning in the bottle, set fire to water?
Coming out the nozzle on the fire hose, flyer than swatters
Cinderella man, cinderella man, cinderella man, cinderella man
Smash an hour glass, grab the sand, take his hands and cuff em
Spit a rhyme to freeze the clock, take the hands of time and cuff em
Cinderella man, cinderella man, cinderella man, cinderella man.
There's a storm comin that the weatherman couldn't predict
I start the bug, prick you better, flee cause I get ticked
It's a wrap, I was down, when I was down, I was kicked
I got up, I'm bout to punch you to the ground
You trick, it's a trap
F*ck my last CD, the sh*t's in my trash
I be god damned if another rapper gets in my ass
I hit the gas and I spit every rap as if it's my last
You can die in the blink of an eye
So bat your eyelashes, and keep winking and blowing kisses
Cause you're flirting with death
I'm destroying your livelihood, I ain't just hurting your rep
I catch a flow and get going
No remorse I'm showing, ain't slowing for no one
Knowing there is nothing you can do about it
Zero in on the target like a marksman
The target is you
I shut your lane down
Took your spot, parked in it too
Arsenic flow, lighter fluid saliva: what can you do?
Go get your crew to hype you up stand behind you like "whoooo!"
That boy's hot enough to melt Hell, burn Satan too
Fry his ass and put his asses back together with glue
See you can hate em, he don't blame you frankly he would too
This game could ill afford to lose him
How bout you? Now guess who?

[Hook]
Here's a clue
He came to a ball in a wife beater
Lost his Nike shoe
It's in your ass
He's in your ass, he's all up in your psyche too
Now what's his name?
Cinderella man, Cinderella man,
Cinderella man, Cinderella,
Cinderella man, Cinderella man,
If I had a time machine, I'd be
Cinderella man, Cinderella man,
Cinderella man, Cinderella man,
Music is my time machine so call me
(Cinderella man, Cinderella man,
Cinderella man, Cinderella man,)

[Verse 2]
F*ck catching lightning
He struck it, screamed "shut up" at thunder
Flipped the world upside down and made it rain upward
Cinderella man, Cinderella man
Cinderella man, Cinderella man,
Rewound the future to the present
Paused it - don't ask how
F*ck the past, motherf*cker
He's the sh*t right now, he's
Cinderella man, Cinderella man
Cinderella man, Cinderella man
Cinder Fellow, Shady Dane
Came to wrap the game up in cellophane
Raise hell, from Hell he came
But didn't come to bore you with the Cinderella story
Nor did he come to do the same
Can't afford to be a label in this day and age
And at this stage of the game
Mediocrity can no longer be allowed to fly
So say bye to the old, hi
To the new que sera
Consider it his last hurrah
The coup de gras
Raise em high in the sky, keep em up
Time to bring the place alive
Thanks for being patient, I will make no more mistakes
Sh*t, my potato's baked
Homie, the veggies on my plate can fly
My filet is smoking weed
Yeah, faggot - the steaks are high
Sh*t I ain't even suppose to be here
By the grace of god, the skin on my teeth
And the hair on my nuts, I skated by
Now y'all are on thin ice
With ankle weights I hate to lie
How f*cking irritated are you?
How much in your face am I?
It ain't sh*t you could do but fear it
Proof is here in spirit, I'm the spitting image
I'll mirror it when I stand near it
Your pussy lyric: I "cunt" hear it
Who forms pyramids and raps circles around square lyricists, who?

[Hook]
Here's a clue
He came to a ball in a wife beater
Lost his Nike shoe
It's in your ass
He's in your ass, he's all up in your psyche too
Now what's his name?
Cinderella man, Cinderella man,
Cinderella man, Cinderella,
Cinderella man, Cinderella man,
If I had a time machine, I'd be
Cinderella man, Cinderella man,
Cinderella man, Cinderella man,
Music is my time machine so call me
(Cinderella man, Cinderella man,
Cinderella man, Cinderella man,)
