lyrics

I broke kayfabe, yeah now I dropped the mask
And none of my old fans are ever coming back
I cut the line that was already blurred
Between reality and fiction and lessons never learned

There's no use in a gimmick when it's just already me
In the squared circle taking bumps for everyone to see
The only difference is, when I'm not in the ring
Is that I'm the same person but afraid of everything

But when I think about it, it's my fear of defeat
That pushes me to go all-in when I'm called to compete
How is it that I'm a beast when the gloves are drawn
Yet declawed, defanged and deballed when the house come on

I broke kayfabe, yeah now I dropped the mask
And none of my old fans are ever coming back
I cut the line that was already blurred
Between reality and fiction and lessons never learned

You think it seamless but we're calling all our spots
Making gestures no one picks up on when the highlights come up
Do I look like a deity when putting on my shoes?
The real story is there's not much else that I know how to do

But when I think about it, it's my fear of defeat
That pushes me to go all-in when I'm called to compete
How is it that I'm a beast when the gloves are drawn
Yet declawed, defanged and deballed when the house come on

I broke kayfabe, yeah now I dropped the mask
And none of my old fans are ever coming back
I cut the line that was already blurred
Between reality and fiction and lessons never learned

The line is blurred 'cause there's no difference to be made
'Tween when I'm in my civvies and the clothing of my trade
If I could be consistent, I'd be top of the lot
Than to be the loser jobber who can't even get a pop

But when I think about it, it's my fear of defeat
That pushes me to go all-in when I'm called to compete
How is it that I'm a beast when the gloves are drawn
Yet declawed, defanged and deballed when the house come on

I broke kayfabe, yeah now I dropped the mask
And none of my old fans are ever coming back
I cut the line that was already blurred
Between reality and fiction and lessons never learned

I broke kayfabe, yeah now I dropped the mask
And none of my old fans are ever coming back
But I won't be stuck between the loner in the locker room
And the main eventer in the stands who's just starting to bloom
