Like a buncha blind people playin' tic-tac-toe
Who knows where the zeroes and the exes go?
Buncha blind people playin' tic-tac-toe
Who knows where the zeroes and the exes go?

Just like sweet November here comes a pretender
Borderline half-cast, tell me nothing else and please don't ask
Listen woman, I swear if U put another streak n ur hair
Change it 1 more time while ur Uncle Cleo Pusha just stares and stares

Like a buncha blind people playin' tic-tac-toe
Who knows where the zeroes and the exes go?
Buncha blind people playin' tic-tac-toe
Who knows where the zeroes and the exes go?

If U ever get the chance 2 travel back 2 ancient dance
Tell this balletina that I wish her well and happy romance
I'm doing much better than I was when she got me high
Trying 2 rely on how many layers I should strip and why

Like a buncha blind people playin' tic-tac-toe
Who knows where the zeroes and the exes go? (Who knows?)
Buncha blind people playin' tic-tac-toe
Who knows where the zeroes and the exes go?

N simpler times the tic-tac that I told U down below
Made ur womanly obligations better than U know
After which wide open eyes that previously were closed
Saw the past and other things about U better left untold

Like a buncha blind people playin' tic-tac-toe
Who knows where the zeroes and the exes go?
Off n2 the deepwater catastrophic down below
