Others tell like it is, while I tell it how I would like it to be.

Cee-Lo, “The World I Know,” from Slam The Soundtrack, 1998

Who’s that peeking in my window?
Nobody now.

Goodie Mob, “Cell Therapy,” Soul Food, 1995

I wanna lie to you sometimes…but I can’t.
I wanna tell you that it’s all good…but it ain’t.

Cee-Lo, “Thought Process,” from Goodie Mob’s Soul Food, 1995

You don’t wanna hear the truth, so I’ma lie to you…make it sound fly to you.

Cee-Lo, “The Experience,” from Goodie Mob’s Still Standing, 1998
