[I may not be pretty…]

I died for three days

[I may not be pretty, but it’s plain to see]

I died for three fucking days

[It’s plain to see I’m beautiful]

[Just keep it down]

Yeah

[I’m beautiful]

I can’t even remember my life

[I’m gonna burrow my way in there]

[I’m like termites baby]

[Gimme something that’s not fake]

Once you start coming with the customers it’s time you get out of the game

Yeah
Yeah, yeah, yeah
Yeah, yeah, yeah, OK
Yip

Yip

Ah, ha

Yeah

Ahhh, yeah

Yeah, you wanna scratch it?
You wanna scratch it?
You wanna scratch it, baby?
You wanna scratch it, baby?
You wanna scratch it, baby?
You wanna scratch it, baby?
You wanna scratch it, baby?
Go ahead and scratch it

Scratch it baby
Scratch it baby
Scratch it baby
Scratch it baby

Yeah, go ahead and scratch it, like this

Waaaaaaa, uh

Termite, find the spot
It’s home
Find it’s home
[Find my way to your heart]
Termites got a bad rap
Out on the street
[In your mind]
I ain’t never gonna leave
[He ain’t no slouch]
Gonna stay in your mind
I’m gonna find my way into your home

Deep, deep, deep
Deep, deep

Get deeper into your soul

I don’t know when to quit

His crew cannot be caught

[It’s plain to see I’m beautiful]

He’s gonna burrow his way into your heart

[I’m beautiful]

It’s plain to see

I can’t be stopped
I can’t be stopped
I can’t be stopped
