JH:Generally I'm a modest guy I've eaten my share of humble pie Sometimes that's delicious, but I do have wishes To swim with the biggest of bigger fishes What would be the point if we were all the same Life would be an abject hackneyed game No frame of reference for pleasure when there's no pain I'd rather not refrain I'd rather not abstain Do you believe I'm special Would you agree I'm special How could I be so special Do I believe I'm special I'm not afraid to be cast aside Invisible guys don't need to hide The struggle is real but what's the deal When people feel like they need to have the most appeal I remember practicing most weekends At the expense of spending joyful time with friends Imagining that it would yield the best rewards Not for repeating hip-hop doo-wop chords Do you believe I'm special Would you agree I'm special How could I be so special Do I believe I'm special IC: Mom always told me I was a one-of-a-kind but now that I'm old and wise, that thought it never be runnin' my mind What makes me different than all of the other dreamers I can't impress 'em with bars when I meet up with the reaper I said ignorance is blissful World is abysmal, so every time I rap I gotta snap like a wish bone What the future holds Let me look into my crystal ball I ain't got no friends left 'cause I ticked 'em off I ain't slept in days I'm getting more Fs than As When this record plays evident I'm in a mental haze staring at the Yellow Moon while Aaron Neville sings Heard the devil say that I'd never be special Wait I control my destiny piecing up what is left of me Confidence and common sense'll be the recipe This industry, it be faker than pro wrestling 'Makes me wonder if this talent really is a specialty JH:Anyway who am I to fret like this Maybe a key change can pull me out of this abyss Sooner or later I shall find myself And make amends with the me left on the shelf In a dance, an epic vast expanse of kids A round-robin championship of ids Maybe I'm unique and maybe not But I might as well deliver all I've got Do you believe I'm special Would you agree I'm special How could I'be so special Do I believe I'm special ALL:Do you believe we're special Would you agree we're special How could we be so special Do we believe we're special Do you believe we're special Would you agree we're special How could we be so special Do we believe we're special
