Lyrics

But first be a person who needs people, people who need people,
be a person who needs people, people who need people.

Check it, I feel like a wandering soul, a Nomad,
cos when I'm relying on people I find it goes bad,
so try and keep myself to myself,
I'm self sufficient and never find myself depending on no one else,
I've seen em' let me down,
I've seen em' talk a good game and say they in my corner,
yo but when I turn around, it must have been a hoax,
cos I don't see nothing there unless this
is the time they wearing invisible cloaks,
they said they had my back,
but every time I was in trouble they
would "walk on by" like Burt Bacharach,
"I say a little prayer" and just wait a little later,
but when I check the data there ain't nothing on the paper,
they say love thy neighbour,
but when I get to know em' and just peel away the layers,
I'm the MVP, the most valuable player,
until somebody told me I should
really just be a person who needs pe...

They say no man's an island
and people really need communities that they can thrive in,
cos the animals that stay in a pack keep on surviving,
but I love the way I'm living my life, I keep it private
and my blood pressure's lower when I stay away from others,
I don't wanna live a life in which my peace of mind suffers,
so I'm gonna keep my distance like, "no these ain't my Cousins",
I know I said they was,
but for real they really wasn't, but don't get offended,
I'd rather keep it real on my own than be
pretending that I'm the most sociable soul,
it's condescending,
so I'mma' take a step back and cancel my participation,
no need to worry bout' me, I am good in isolation
and don't be looking at me funny like I'm losing it,
I'm choosing this although you disapprove of it,
assuming it's the right way to go,
but I know you're gonna tell me I
should just be a person who needs people.

Yo', I need you and then I don't need you.

Outro (Stee Moglie)
people who need people,
Oh people, people who need pe... (sigh).
