  • [Chorus]
    You see right through me.
    How do you do that shit
    How do you do that shit
    How do you do that shit
    How do you
    How do you
    How do you
    How do you
    How do you

    You let me win,
    You let me ride
    You let me rock
    You let me slide
    And when they lookin'
    You let me hide.
    Defend my honor
    Protect my pride.
    The good advice
    I always hated
    But looking back
    It made me greater.
    You always told me
    Forget the haters
    Just get my money,
    Just get my weight up.
    Know when I'm lying,
    Know when I'm crying
    It's like you got it
    Down to a science
    Why am I trying
    No you ain't buying,
    I tried to fight it
    Back with defiance.
    You make me laugh
    You make me hoarse
    From yelling at you
    And getting at you
    Picking up dishes
    Throwing them at you.
    Why are you speaking
    When no one asked you.

    [Chorus: x2]

    What are we doing,
    Could you see through me?
    Cause you say Nicki
    And I say who me?
    And you say no you
    And I say screw you.
    Then you start dressing
    And you start leaving
    And I start crying
    And I start screaming
    The heavy breathing
    But whats the reason.
    Always get the reaction you wanted
    I'm actually fronting
    I'm askin' you something
    Yo, answer this question,
    Class is in session,
    Tired of letting
    Passive aggression
    Control my mind,
    Capture my soul
    OK your right
    Just let it go.
    OK you got it,
    Its in the can.
    Before I played it
    You knew my hand.
    You could turn a free throw into a goal.
    Nigga got the peep hole to my soul.

    [Chorus: x2]

    Stop,
    Stop,
    Would you just stop looking through me
    Cause I just cant take it.
    No I cant take it.

    You see right through me.
    How do you do that shit
    How do you do that shit
    How do you do that shit
    How do you
    How do you
    How do you
    How do you
    How do you

    You see right through me.
    (you see right through me baby)
    You see right through me
    You see right through me Writer/s: ANDREW THIELK, JOE SATRIANI, ONIKA MARAJ
