"Closer" as written by Gene Griffin, Aaron Robin Iii Hall, Timothy William Gatling, James Todd Smith, Theodor Bowen and Teddy Riley....
Self starter since the age of ten I didn't know I'd have to go down fighting
down this road
Again class clown to a corner I was bound a dunce cap wearing. Real God fearin
who never
made a sound

I cut my head out of the classroom picture and thought that I was the victor I was blind

Now I'm closer to the ideal complexion
Closer for my own protection
Closer to the edge

I never thought that I could be so blind

A white shirt plaid tie wearing, child prodigy
Two steps from sanity
One from the edge

A glance away from a face that shatters me
As photogenic as a freak
Poster boy for the meek
Pale face and week,
God damn, my future looks bleak

I cut my head out of the classroom picture and thought that I was the victor I was blind

I'm closer to the ideal complexion
Closer for my own protection
closer to the edge

I never thought that I could be so blind blind
