[2015] The Long Con

Dishing out the bullshit
how ignorant can one really be?
Neither deaf or blind
Dim bulb not bright enough to see
I was there front and center
hiding right in plain sight
In shadows of your darkest hour
I blend with the lowlight

You were the mark in the long con
Bet you thought it was your idea all along
You were the mark in the long con
My endgame you were never in on

What's it feel like
to be taken for the fool
you've always proved yourself to be?
So pretentious, unshaken, cool
clutching your hand of cards
bottom dealt from this custom deck
still clueless of what comes next ...
Six figure bounced check

You were the mark in my long con
Plan never being yours
It was always mine
Even though you thought
it was your idea from the start
you were the mark the entire time
