Official Lyrics:

For Real
Oh brother, look what we’ve become
Oh brother, could we be so dumb
They set us up like dominos

I didn’t do it for no magazine
Didn’t do it for no video
Never did it for no CEO

But I did it for real
Woulda done it for free
I did it for me
Cause it was all that rang true
I did it for real
And I did it for you

Mighta done it for my sanity
Maybe done it for my vanity
Could be I did it for my big ego

But I did it for real
Woulda done it for free
Yeah I did it for me
Cause it was all that rang true
I did it for real
And I did it for you (true)

Oh brother, look what we’ve become
Oh brother, I’ve been overrun
Only did it for the way it made me feel

Yeah I did it for real
Woulda done it for free
Yeah I did it for me
Cause it was all that rang true
I did it for real
And I did it for you
