I say assassination and you say genocide and I needed concentration and you needed to pulverize and be the force that cut that course and lay it out… Before they calmed you down. Before it wore you out. And civilized your savage moves. Your situation should break into. I needed isolation but you said “let’s live it up!” and I gave you consolation and you said “it’s not enough!” But if we can work to curb the hurt that put us out before they spun us ‘round. Before they wore you down… They’d say always be kind. Stay, between the lines. And make love all the time. I feel you feeling me. I feel you feeling me now.
I had my share of the drama Now 1 and 1 is making 3? So I went and asked your mama "Come light up my Christmas tree?" I took an Xanax in the sauna Then I almost fell asleep I got a text from your mama She made a rope out of sheets! I could leave and be back in hour...? But hey, I'd be a coward. I get the whole say? Say here I am! I get the whole thing? Then here I am! We're going the whole way? Here I am! We get the whole thing? Your mama picks up up at County She said she wants to make peace But she don't want you around me She puts her hand on my knee I left my charger in her Lexus!!! So I couldn't see my tweets Did you ever get my message...???
It's been still long enough I need the calm to erupt Do you got my back? While I go get my cut I got a feeling we're screwed I'm gonna need an excuse Now you've got the match But I got the fuse And even though... I do just what I like Bring a knife to a fight I got a place to lay low Keep the shades pulled tight I can't wash out these stains I can't loosen these chains I need to take off this mask Warm the ice in my veins I'll lay back and wait In case you hesitate Just put an X on my heart And I'll drive in the stake
Undesirable 03:54
Now she’s a slave that’s what she’s always been about And she “keeps it loose” so she’s got “her way out.” Now anymore, and you’re paralyzed…you get sucked in, you realize. Now you’re over…organizing a dirty command. Undone feelings and she’s doing the best that she can so she won’t be undesirable. So maybe she can be, indescribable to all those strugglers out there… Now I aint afraid and I’ll even be your vampire out in the sun. And this is only for now ‘cause tomorrow this whole deal is done. I’ve got harmony it even says so there on my arm. All this “keeping the peace” and she’s “looking for a way to stay calm”
Get Reborn 03:38
I think of all the times, the years we waste Then get reborn back in the chase I could tell that you loved me with your knife to my neck All eyes are on us when we come back 'Cause I can't do this anymore – so when we come back out, again...We can't keep 'ho'ing 'round I would drift behind you from place to place Stayed in your shadow and smile to your face It's better if you'd love me then put a knife to my neck So when we walk through the door – I'm not your slave ever again
Tell me, did you finally shed your skin? Did you, start over again...you get it right? Rebelling, committing endless sins Abandoning, your family and friends...for this love. 2 trains, 1 track Stops you like a heart attack 1 heart, 2 cracks Can we...ever...fix it back? We make peace, we lay awake at night. They form teams, but we never had to fight...for our love ........it was always here, always real 2 trains, 1 track Stops you like a heart attack 1 heart, 2 cracks Can we ever fix it back? 1 hope, 2 views Bad things that we choose 2 hearts, 1 fuse Everything we hoped...we'd never lose.
