Make me wanna sa-- Sometimes, time don't let shit be done. Sometimes, your mind won't let shit go. Even if it's what you want, we know... hearts don't give a good gatdamn, what you want. What do you need from me? Feels like the right thing to ask while we're here at the top of the road. But, I don't know. I don't know. Rather say: Nothing Nothing Nothing Shit. I was doing fine spending time getting fucked up, finding my peace.... alone. Guess it's never gonna be a good time, cause time don't give a good gatdamn what you want. What do you need from me? Feels like a good time to ask since we're here at the top of the road. But I don't know. Man, I don't know. I'd rather say: Nothing Nothing Nothing Saying it won't is only making it worse, I need to control it. Nothing goes bad. Put it away (and it goes down) Saying it won't is only making it worse, I need to control it. Nothing goes bad. Put it away. and it goes down and it goes down and it goes down

Ooh, lord. You're such a fucking baby. How the fuck do I forget that shit? Every time it's my fault, like maybe I should set an alarm. I mean, damn. Even so much more lately. And every time, I'm shocked and appalled, like maybe, Jean, you should recall... how this nigga lane be... and every time you try to make things right, he burn it down to the ground . Don't turn around, you're such a fucking victim, ain'tcha. That kinda thing is just your nature. Well, I kinda hate'cha. (goddamn) I'm so glad it's over. So glad that it's over. Nigga, I'm so fucking glad it's over. So glad that it's over. I loved you baby, but that don't make me wrong. How many damn apologies can one man want? You run, then walk, right back to guilty threads. I won't. You must be fucking crazy, to think I wanna stay in a loss. I tried to let you get your player shit off, but let's be real... you never really understood how it feels. Mmm.... can I get I witness? I bet I could. So many bitches. (rap) You know what's interesting? And if everybody had a bit you in em then they would be assholes. Bitter women, definitive feminists, giving this nigga the pass though. Remember that Jean is the enemy, really? You fill in the memory with an epiphany that was a phony epiphany? What are you kidding? We've been in the moment again and again, I'm living them all. Made the decision to kick in the bucket and click the phone call... off. Boss, stick to being a victim... most of the time. Post up your lines, blah blah blah. Instagram, fine. Bitch, you ain't mine. Quit your damn cying. Bitch, you a damn lie. Bitch, you a damn lie.

Seem so composed, I know the notes I wrote in theory. Repose... I wish I knew more often than I take it… nearly. Laid in between the sheets in discord of who I am and what my colors bleed and in the end I know you'll never give me all the things I need So far, so close, so far. So close. So far, so close. So far, so close, I know I pick the bones I could have left alone... in theory. No one has traveled this road even though they still stand near me. Caught in between hope and a dream, though it seems to most that I can see it. Most of these days, morning rays, I've come to deathly fear them. I'm... There's always tomorrow. There's always tomorrow. There's always tomorrow. There's always tomorrow. There's always tomorrow. There's always tomorrow.
