The introspective track asks, "Who's keeping me from the top? It's Me. What keeps me punching the clock? It's Me... In the end I have to face Me."

Ugly Heroes continues to connect with listeners through their self-titled debut album. As they begin booking their fall and winter tour schedule, Apollo Brown and company wanted to drop one of their non-album bonus cuts. Red Pill & Verbal Kent both deliver heartfelt vocal performances, while Apollo Brown dips into his experimental toolkit with 808's and stuttering double time hi-hats.


Red Pill:
I'm sitting, stressing bout this life I chose
I hope they see it when I'm up behind that microphone
I know they'll look at me and wonder shit they wanna know
I start to question being real, did I just sell my soul?
And all I know is all I know, I've seen my past right
My father feeling lost and my mother read her last rites
Knowing nothing else but how to grab that glass tight
Thinking back on thoughts I was thinking bout just last night
Not sure I'm doing this for good reason
Start to think it's a mistake, how would it look leaving?
Holding back and knowing that I'm better than
Everything I'm doing to myself, learned my lesson and...
When I'm painting that reflection
Can't look back on it later, never leave a fucking question
You make yourself, nobody else
For better or for worse you paint that picture of yourself

Games we play

1 -who's keepin me from the top, me,
Yeah, it's me
2- What keeps me punchin the clock: it's me . yeah it's me
3 -Who runnin circles in place: me
-runnin the wrong way in the race: me
....In the end ill have to face, me: the end ill have to face, me:

Verbal Kent:
hey yo this
1 grinds not new to me: hustle like this day could be my
last, just consider this my eulogy back in school they
2 hoped they'd find a teacher that get trough to me, knew there wasn't
Jack that they could do to me...until they booted me
3 I puff, puff..passed...asked to get my work in,
All I ever turned in were rough,rough, -drafts
4 got in with the wrong crowd,
None of us was on shit, despite,
learned to do some wrong shit
5 and no one told me stop Dan, no one had kahones big
enough to make me stop and, see where I was goin so
6 I owe it to myself, as the only one ashamed, and the
Only one who gave a fuck about who I became and,
7 life has a shape an it's a circle in a square space-
-And it's a race: to fall UP a staircase
8 clear case of optimism: I think I can fly fam,
Anything is mine, and who's to blame if not: I am.
