I.O.U. (Shinoda Mike)

Yeah, levitating off the black top Used to struggle getting started now I can't stop Used to be the quiet kid in the sandbox Now it's hands up every time that your man rocks You all just saw me coming in again You mad, you thought we were synonyms Too bad that's the water you're getting in You're too fat for the sharks that you're swimming in From where I'm sitting contenders Are looking like fruits spinning around in a blender Hardly a snack when I'm here looking for dinner I eat 'em, delete 'em, they're barely beginners Main course is my main sport Play major but Minor's my main Fort Put a chain around everything I came for Look but don't touch sucker Tell 'em take an I.O.U. Say they want respect now Thinking they deserve to have it next now Tell 'em take an I.O.U. Believe in what they're making up Talking loud but never really saying much Tell 'em take an I.O.U. I've been drawing plans out And they think I'm giving them a handout Tell 'em take an I.O.U. Thinking they're entitled to a piece, no I don't think so Tell 'em take an I.O.U. Levitating in a blackout Used to drink a 40 'fore we mashed out Used to think that working 40 was a max-out Now I'm working even when I'm sleeping, do the math now 'Cause even when I'm sleeping, eyes keep 'em open Stripe across them both the color of your hemoglobin A huge act man, like I'm known for being Logan X-23, I'm keen to leave 'em with a femur broken Taking it too far maybe Friends like Mike, I don't know who you are lately But pride and hate has made naysayers mistake me For wasted brain space, of ratings they gave me I don't need your respect, I got history I'm '81 Reagan with that nonsense, miss me Father like Francis, Anakin or John Misty Not to be touched, sucker Tell 'em take an I.O.U. Say they want respect now Thinking they deserve to have it next now Tell 'em take an I.O.U. Believe in what they're making up Talking loud but never really saying much Tell 'em take an I.O.U. I've been drawing plans out And they think I'm giving them a handout Tell 'em take an I.O.U. Thinking they're entitled to a piece, no I don't think so Tell 'em take an I.O.U.
