      Lyrics for Fort Minor - "Slip Out The Back (feat. Mr. Hahn)"

      You know me
      I used to get caught up in everyday life
      Trying to make it through my day so I could sleep at night
      Tried to figure out my way through the maze of rights and wrongs
      But like you used to say
      Nothing feels like it's really worth it
      Forget perfect, I'm trying not to be worthless
      Since I last saw you I've been looking for a purpose
      Well, I met this kid who thought like I did
      He had a weird way of looking at it
      This is what he said

      Slip out the back before they know you were there
      And at the worst you'll see nobody cares
      Cause you don't wanna be around when it all goes down
      Even heroes know when to be scared

      Now, I don't remember where I met him
      Or remember his name
      But he walked funny like he was just too big for his frame
      Just over five foot but he weighed a buck fifty
      And what he said seemed so right it stuck with me
      Listen, it's like poker, you can play your best
      But you gotta know when to fold your cards and take a rest
      And know when to hold your cards, hold your breath
      And hope that nobody else is stacking the deck

      Because I don't need to tell you that life isn't fair
      It doesn't care, it arbitrarily cuts off your air
      And like you, I want someone to say it's okay
      In the truest part of our hearts everybody's afraid
      We're just under-appreciated and overwhelmed
      Fighting so hard to hide our fear that we're scaring ourselves
      You understand what I'm saying, cause you always did
      But it's different in the words of a cowardly kid who said

      And I'm no hero
      You remember how it was, you know
      All I ever did was worry, feeling out of control
      To the point where everything was going end over end
      I'm spinning around in circles again
      This is where you come in
      All of this to explain to you why I had to
      Separate myself away from yesterday's life
      Please remember, this isn't how I hoped it would be
      But I had to protect you from me

      That's why I
      Slipped out the back before you knew I was there
      I know you felt unprepared
      But every single time I was around I'd just bring you down
      And I could tell that it was time to be scared
      That's why I
      Slipped out the back before you knew I was there
      And I know the way I left wasn't fair
      I didn't wanna be around just to bring you down
      I'm not a hero but don't think I didn't care
