Helpful Heathens (RB)

It’s hard to believe sometimes

How much people’ve doubted me

I never mess with anybody

Keep to my own really

I just mind my business

But the moment I excel

The moment I start winning

Heathens are what they become

The least helpful of all

If I show any interest

They shut me down completely

I don’t really care though

Okay, I might be lying

But these aren’t my people

Don’t really need their approval

Because look here and see

When I’m up and out

I’m not taking new friends

If you weren’t here before

I won’t need you then
