lyrics

Feel like I'm decomposing,
Feel like I wasn't chosen,
For the gym class, I was picked last, and now I’m stuck at home and
Vibin out as I sit on the couch so I ponder to the yonder “will ever make it out?”
Probably. But this monotony is haunting me
So strap me to this bed and somebody go give me a lobotomy
But when I’m upon the beat I ride it til its finished
Marathon to paragon, you know i'm on it, so replenished
I’m the dennis to this menace, I’m the apple of your eye
Or maybe the worm inside the apple, rotting by your side
I think I’ve been living a lie, or or givin’ a bit of my mind
To those that chose that road that goes a slower speed and time.
I've been swimming or sinking i'm feeling helpless
Signs be telling me yellin to be more selfish.
Tried for a minute i did it but then i felt sick.
God, i been feelin’ so lost and i can't help it.


I've been shot down, I've been abused.
Oh oh I’m so confused
And lately, I've been thinking bout leaving town
I've been so low, I lost my mind.
Oh oh i’m so confined,
And lately I've been thinking bout leaving town.

Something in my bones is starving in the buzz tonight.
I'm lying to myself playing like I was alright
I wanna fuss and fight, I will become the light
I will invade your brain and eat up all the kryptonite
I fucking need the hype, believe in it and scream it right?
Been itching since I switched and envisioned if I read and write
To make it right, we’ll be alright but we need a light to feed the fight
But even that won't trap what the darkness seems to find
So watch me battle the rage
As i rip and rattle the cage
Have you seen the look on my face?
Man I ain't made for this place
Man I ain't keeping no pace
With haste I wasting my days
That I ain't ablaze on the stage
So come my people lets raise.
Because you eyelids are spies kids
They tryna hide the fact that you can be inspiring
The road is never straight in fact its mostly winding
And straight out of this town is where I’m driving

I've been shot down, I've been abused.
Oh oh I’m so confused
And lately, I've been thinking bout leaving town
I've been so low, I lost my mind.
Oh oh i’m so confined,
And lately I've been thinking bout leaving town.
