ugly duckling
(feat. aqualeo)

[verse 1 – tech n9ne:]
i am this way cuz i got up
and got it when i was the oddest
to demolish the hottest scholars
with all of these goddish products
call it way polished
i jot it, dot it
then they got it
stay modest
but brought it
psychotic thought is raw and sick
but everybody didn’t want to give a n*gg* time of the day
or will i ever reach another when i’m in the grave
i got to be different to keep up with the pay
say, say, say
what you wonder about nina?
the one who is wishing me
coming up missing
that one is a dreamer
calling me ugly i laugh
because i’m rough as rugby and fast
industry’s chubby and flab
you look sick, pudgy and cr*p
now your chick want to hug me and smash
i look lovely with cash instead of muggy and clash
you act like we were buddies in cl*ss
got my painted face
ain’t it great?
really illuminated
but then it tainted sp*ce
better to bring it straight then gain it late and aim it fake
famous for my brain its fate
that i strained in fate
then i became the great…

[hook – tech n9ne:]
no love or nothing
just blood and suffering
for the ugly duckling
trust me
trust me
trust me
trust me
is worse than knowing you’re beautiful but your treated like and ugly duckling

[verse 2 – acie:]
ever since i came out the womb
and i was birthed to the planet
it’s like the earth couldn’t stand it
i was just worthless abandoned
so i write verses and curses
to try and cope with the damage
citizens gave me you cholos are going to feel my curses in spanish
i’ve been in verses then vanished
i’m not the first to be banished
but ostracized because i prophesied the churches are scandalous
see my words are just managed
perfectly perched on the canvas
painting a picture with scriptures
with my fellow dirty from kansas
so i’m going to spit on the wax
drip on the tracks
and spill out my pain
rather than give me a gat
empty the mac
shatter then spill out my brain
people are strange
verses be spinning
a dime on the top
trying to get all the change
i have to devise me a plot
then gamble the lot
so i’m stocked to get me some change
see all the hate that they gave me
fueled my p*ssionate speech
made me react on the track and start
whooping *ss on the beat
so since i’m rude
i fire noses up like a flu off the grease
head in the sky h*lla flying high
like i’m blew off the sweet


[verse 3 – priceless:]
it’s my godd*mn time
go ahead shine a light over here on the darkness
what’s you thought?
what, we gon’ play dead
roll over and add up losses?
d*mn fools
cause no pro band cool
politicking with the rules
eat fools for the carc*ss
because we back
well seems like we leave
and another leave
a vegan
no sausage
but don’t ride d*ck now
and act like you like b*ms lit now
keep signing to killers and fat drug dealers
is you really the big sh*t now?
i gotta spit
these n*gg*s be weak runnin’ ’round like their nuts cut loose
can’t even shake a n*gg* hand, gotta dap a n*gg* up
f*ck around and touch b*tt-f*ck juice
mayday to the payday, they say we stay
don’t cut the noose
yes, off with the heads
n*gg*s off to the bed, getting head like duck, duck, goose (ohhh)
technicians form a pet*tion to never ever let it up
on a rapper that sucks, and these industry f*cks
with the bucks that will make you turn small from a duck
crystal meth, cocaine, e-pills with a little weed fill and a lot of free will
and a couple refills to whenever we steal
won’t see thrills like these steals on a steap hill
that’s some hot sh*t
that’s our sh*t
one more time, don’t ride d*ck
sh*t, i got us creeping on your level
aqualeo, now that’s speaking of the devil
