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

Just like sweet November
Here comes a pretender
Borderline half-caste
Tell me nothing else & please don't ask
Listen, woman, I swear
If U put another streak N ur hair
Change it 1 more time
While yo Uncle Cleopusha just stares & stares

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

If U ever get the chance
2 travel back 2 ancient dance
Tell this balletina
That wish her well & happy romance
'm doing much better than ...
Was when she got me high
Trying 2 rely
On how many layers should strip & Y

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

N simpler terms
The tic-tac that told U down below
Made ur womanly obligations
Better than U know
After which wide open eyes
That previously were closed
Saw the past & other things about U
Better left untold

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