lyrics

I've got intimate details that hold you to Fiji. I'm bowling blue meanies. I told you I'm needy, impeding the meaning of keeping the reading in need of a meeting, careening the leaning to places unknown on a map or a globe. I got tackled ten-fold when I passed on a probe. Oh the places you'll go, but you're told 'slow your roll' as men sell their souls. the infinite froze. you're hung by your toes and left in the cold to give them the rhythm you have but can't hold. I could grow to be old and folding my robes and still have a clue as to what you've been told. It's incidious. the most is venemous, sounding hideous (slowly infringing us). they're living on ignorance, converting a verdict from guilty to innocence, outlawing friendliness, ending these synonyms and losing us in their long sentences.

I don't know why I try sometimes.
(and since we're on the topic, I figure I would drop some rock shit, reach inside my money and pull out my pockets. They say life isn't easy when you're trying too hard. Well, i'm trying too hard to remove these scars and a large part of life is just to live with what you're given. I've been given criticism and so that's how I'm living but i keep on working and I keep on learning cause I've got to be here for a purpose.)

Well it's us versus them now. Tell it to your pen pal. he don't know nobody that can get out of the hen house. Write rhymes for days, but nothings going to change. We're all brainwashed, it's got us stuck in a cage and I'm sucking on rage and nursing on the antidote. I ran a note back. It's withstanding no wax and it's stuck in your ears so you're having trouble hearing this. I'm feeling amiss and what's clear in the mist? There's nothing to know that television doesn't tell you. Why turn it off? their purpose is to sell truth. Don't listen to me. I'm not on an album cover advertised by your local big brother.
I used to write songs to be popular. But now I write songs cause I like to write songs. If you like them, sing along.

I don't know why I try sometimes.
(and since we're on the topic, I figure I would drop some rock shit, reach inside my money and pull out my pockets. They say life isn't easy when you're trying too hard. Well, i'm trying too hard to remove these scars and a large part of life is just to live with what you're given. I've been given contradiction and so that's how I'm living but i keep on working and I keep on learning cause I've got to be here for a purpose.)

Well I'm sitting in my room with the door closed (hormones). It's normal for me to be forceful. But I'm taking down the set. yeah. i'm stripping down the banners, a mannerless pan of insanity. Hold the vanity. you stand there, disbanded, see me, thinking 'can it be, please?' If you let me be free, it's so easy. All I have to do is try but i keep questioning why. I'm too fly not to cry. Well hold my album to a candle if it's more than you can handle. I'm enamored with vandals who amble to the center. I've got so many friends wearing sandals in the winter, a mandolin dinner. It's like a can of vanilla entered my psyche. I might be thinking boycott against Nike but even New Balance does that shit so I'm not going to sit here and list them, but instead I suggest that you remove your shoes and lets boycott the sytem.

I don't know why I try sometimes.

I've been given television <i'm not sure if i actually said this or not, but i should have> and so that's how I'm living but i keep on working and I keep on learning cause I've got to be here for a purpose.)
