This song is by Lupe Fiasco and appears on the album Tetsuo & Youth (2015).

Troi:
Closet full of bones just don't try to put'em back together
(Try to put 'em back together)
And I'll just bite my tongue so wear it like a scarlet letter
(Wear it like a scarlet letter
I've always loved you)

Lupe Fiasco and Troi:
Quiet in the court for the courtship
Marriage of the dork and the gorgeous
Took her from the king of the corpses
He revolve jumped off the wall of the fort with the horses
This is foretold, Bojangles was tapping in morse code
At least to the mad man genius, tap top secrets and more gold (All of you)
From the guts of the mother, Kombucha move her undercover
With a $3,000 son, she just want a lover and somebody else to come and try and drug her
Take her off the grill, she done (I've never loved you), pills celebrating, "We won"
In the system of the women, never knew he had it in him
This condition when the world that they make him become (Love you)
Cocaine and new high tech ways, smuggle whole things (I've always loved you)
From the control range that make radio heads with gold brains (All of you)
Depart '84 Jags on gold chains
Developing niggas from a whole name
God is great but it's snakes on my soul plane

Troi:
Closet full of bones just don't try to put'em back together
(Try to put 'em back together)
And I'll just bite my tongue so wear it like a scarlet letter
(Wear it like a scarlet letter
I've always loved you)

Anatomy skin will be the death of me
Anatomy skin that's just my anatomy
Anatomy skin will be the death of me
Anatomy skin

Lupe Fiasco and Troi:
(Tell me what to do) Limo to the limit, fill it till the brim get in it
You can't get it, if you gotta ask (Make me pretty)
In that case, I want two masks
Bottom class, dollar cast, poppin' tags, droppin' trash
In shopping bags till Akeem take our pocket cash (Am I beautiful?)
Write it in lights, molly in the body of Christ
Drop me to the lobby from heights (Trust me)
Then over the threshold to redeem the doorway
Fourteen broads like the king of Norway
Fourteen broads having dreams of foreplay
Fourteen arm Shiva, viva la coup (Love you)
If the government get it, I'm a fool

Troi:
Closet full of bones just don't try to put'em back together
(Try to put 'em back together)
And I'll just bite my tongue so wear it like a scarlet letter
(Wear it like a scarlet letter
I've always loved you)

Anatomy skin will be the death of me
Anatomy skin that's just my anatomy
Anatomy skin will be the death of me
Anatomy skin

Lupe Fiasco and Troi:
Uh, yeah
Sanskrit dance on the page of the dead book
Don't leave the restroom with the left foot
Flags of Tibet, to bet, to bed, to death, flesh
Release the leash on a fast car
Feed on the keys, fall asleep in a Jaguar
The tip of thy sword is white
Am I night, am I black, am I light? Have I been this?
Realize my begin when I find where my end this
Oedipus wrecks, motherfucker this better than sex
Material potion the love of my martyr
Currency soaked in the blood of my father (Will you cry for me?)
Sky burial, let the wind carry you, farther than I could (Live forever)
An anatomy, not of me, knotting me to it, nodding me to it
Eyes of the I and others, watching me do it, adapt in each rubric
Kubrick in plot and tone, lots of bones, scolds to the top of tone
Skim through it is just skin to it
You're so thin you see the sins through it

Troi:
Closet full of bones just don't try to put'em back together
(Try to put 'em back together)
And I'll just bite my tongue so wear it like a scarlet letter
(Wear it like a scarlet letter
I've always loved you)

Anatomy skin will be the death of me
Anatomy skin that's just my anatomy
Anatomy skin will be the death of me
Anatomy skin
