lyrics

a lot of people around your town
will Wanna talk
Let em 
They paint s’s on their chests and it is pathetic
they can go and play the hero i don’t even mind 
i’m cool with creeping through the shadows swiftly sneaking up behind ya

How many pills does it take to convince everyone that you’re great
me all i need is a mic and some personal space to invade  
by the look on their faces i can tell that their minds are mine taking
i write for the ones who engage with my words in a way that is sacred
praise is my fortune and fame
unlike plays there’s no way you can fake this funk
grew up on a sound that made ladies and cars wanna shake their trunk
middle school bumping and grinding
and finding my groove 
and i figured out cool without ever having taken a drug 
yup
rocking the parties with SAMIX and afterwards go for a sandwich
got love from our families encouraged to work for our dreams 
its amazing what all of that means 
when you’re grown up and things aren’t as good as they seem 
breathe
it will all be cool in the end
maybe
the only thing i know for sure
is
you are who you choose as your friends
pay me
in kisses and hugs and things i can take to the bank
got leaky pipes under my sink 
my body's a vessel
your money will do but  your love is what fills up my tank

please don’t spell my name with a space
use two capital L’s and the a’s lower case

a lot of people around your town
will Wanna talk
Let em 
They paint s’s on their chests and it is pathetic
they can go and play the hero i don’t even mind 
i’m cool with creeping through the shadows swiftly sneaking up behind ya

i wear the mask of the people
ask around town I’m both jester and regal 
the portrait i paint on this beat as my easel
both devil and saint 
and i revel in ways that my brain can appease you
tell me what feeds you
maybe it’s one and the same as mine
and we can all set up a day to dine 
i’ll pay for yours you pay for my
mistakes right
that’s how it is when you live in a place where the space is communal
and everyone’s difference is put on display in a way to bring shame
ignoring the fact that the waste we contribute exists in the same place in time
Whether you think it’s fake or jot
truth is truth
and that doesn’t change despite what you’d like to believe 

please don’t spell my name with a space
use two capital L’s and the a’s lower case
