Creepin, i could do this shit here every weekend Turning upside down again, that’s what I get for dreaming Everytime I come around she ask why I’m leavin Screaming down the alleyway you know the chalk is streaming Pavement, I don’t fuck with nothing but the payment Falling out the window slow motion, what a shame man I don’t wanna fake this, Everytime I think I wanna stay I Run away. Are you listening? Despite these walls we seek I can feel it. And I cannot be saved. If I just walk away. If I just hide and act like nothing solves your bullshit Nothing will change and this is not perfect. I was on my way it was a sinking ship I was out of my league I was out of my league Everytime I call it’s the same old shit, you don’t gotta be free, I don’t wanna be free Every night I walk down the street alone Every time I die, Everytime I put my hands up, and say give me everything that you fucking got You sound like White noise You sound like a new way out You sound like everything I wanna say when I can’t move my mouth I’m dialed into this shit, What’s your timing anyway i got a favor to ask Yea OK, maybe I’ll get over it It’ll pass. I wanna tell you I’m sorry, for the way I was moving I used you, Used you I’m coming back now the hardest, hardest There’s a way i abuse and a way I’m abused by you (Are you listening? Despite these walls we seek. Can you feel it? I cannot be saved) This isn’t how I pictured it. Like, is anybody listening? It’s so selfish to think that my own paranoia is worth throwing fits about. I’m stalling out, falling on top of my own words. I was cutting out a little, stuttering through a long winded phone call. I choked, well, touch me don’t speak, ‘cause your words get so violent, it’s all i can think about. Why bother with it, when I’ll forget the way I felt? We ask for praise, we lie and say ‘we do this for ourselves.’ When it’s confirmation. When I’m grasping for my phone, And I’m screaming back like, ‘Desperation don’t find your way home.’ I think I’m ready to do this again, and I can’t be sorry I’m coming back with a grip and my friends, and I won’t feel sorry This is the best that I think I can be, and I know I’m sorry Try to stop me I’ll pull up again, and I won’t feel sorry
It’s always Better, it’s always Better Burn your bridges often (Burn it quickly) That’s what I would do (Find a new way home) I don’t think I solved it But I Know You I try to walk these streets and each night I walk alone I try to run around, no one calls when I’m home There’s times that I can’t breathe And when I can I get so surprised that I can’t open My eyes, every night I stay up, feeling tight Looking left, I can’t run No one knows what I’ve done Burn your bridges often (Burn it quickly) That’s what I would do (find a new way home) I don’t think I solved it But, I Know You I live in a house built by slaves

Wash away And think about me now.
Everything an act and I get tired I can’t tell if I’m a liar. I’ve seen pictures of you there, it got me goin Someone’s gonna come. Probably use one road, Tell me now where you’re at, If it’s good I’ll go I can’t do this, that’s what I say every time I roll Time will tell, time will tell when i’m ready to go. Guns Up, I’ll explode You celebrate when lies come true. Don’t look at me for what to do. Just grind your teeth and run right through. Just grind your teeth, and run right through. Lemme tell you something No one has to know, See no one asked me first And it’s easy now To look at you like someone’s looking back It’s better now, But every time i wonder how. If I could go out on weekends… Time will tell, time will tell when I’m ready to go Guns Up, I’ll explode It’s better than before. It’s better than you thought it was. I thought you came for mercy, Thought you were the car seat, Now I know you never rode the miles it takes to save us all, Thought you had the guns up Thought you knew that I was gonna come home sometime, Prodigal baby boy. get low stay close see smoke hope for fire
By the way They always tell you that there's no school when you’re drowning I didn’t wanna say this but I’m crowing everyone who gives you pain On the way This is for who the ruler should be I swear that he aint me, it’s all because i try I hate it all Oh yes, I hate it all. What’s an grown man say to the weight of the world? If I can’t take it no more... By the way, They wanna put me in the back seat like I should be Cops don’t understand me cuz I’m black B They don’t get me, now I got trial By the way, This is for who the ruler should be I swear that he aint me It’s all cause I tried What gets you off I’m waiting for a bottle The only thing that comes down when you’re gone And i don’t want another bottle It’s the only thing that comes down What’s an grown man say to the weight of the world? If I can’t take it no more… So what do you say?
When you called, and your voice felt like cracks in the road, I corrode. And i fell. through the window and into a hole. dial tone. Your voice Death knell Rings through Jesus christ it hurts like Call back Spirit Pick up Words you left Come home Holom Haunt me Jesus christ it hurts like hell Come home Holom Haunt me Spitting up the ocean air. I left a message for your ghost That I know you'll never hear I'm left here pleading with a machine For one more second of your voice in my ears And if I let myself believe this Are you ever really gone at all? And I don’t wanna be alone anymore (Gone away) Cause when I am I wanna motherfucking blow I hear you, I see you Dead birds holding closer, with hope in their eyes I feel you, I need you Did you think of me then, a brief flash is all I ask I hear you, I see you I have to believe you felt nothing, I try everyday to do the same. following the birds out to the sea.
