Explanation:
You're in suspension you're a liar

Now i wanna know know i wanna known why
You never look me in the face
Broke a confidence just to please your ego
Should've realised you know what i know

I know where you go everybody you know
I know everything that you do or say
So when you tell lies i always be in your way
I'm nobody's fool and i know all cos i know
What i know
