[2015] The Long Con

 
Dishing out the bullshit  
how ignorant can one be?  
Neither deaf or blind, but dim  
bulb not bright enough to see  
I was there front and center  
hiding right in plain sight---  
navigating in the shadows
blending 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 a custom deck  
still clueless of what comes next ...  
six figure bounced check  
 
You were the mark in my long con  
Plan never being yours was always mine  
Even though you thought  
it was your idea from the start  
you were the mark the entire time
