Drawn to what could have been instead of could be
happy go lucky slash ugly, judge me
flowing rain channeled down from clouds above me
waiting for the hand of time to touch me

I aint the same since I reached puberty
Im 29 every day I wake the world's new to me
beautiful or brutally, suitably or fruitfully
the sun blinds my eyes and I just killed the man I used to be

Again.. I ain't doing this for them..
nah I'm doing this for them and me, yeah I'm selfish
Raised inside of paradise and turned it to a hell pit
butterflies to parasites and tree's to ash can't help it

walked through fire til that paradigm had melted,
music was my summertime through sour times I felt it
and Im feeling it still, the ability to bleeds my appeal
and if that's not for you then you ain't needing to heal

So go back to what you're feeling is real
ain't braggadocious got nothing to boast about
rather burn my demons than MCs when I'm open mouthed
Writing cos I need to do it, found a niche,

my mind a leash releasing when I free the fluid,
build a ship to flee the ruins
capsized when I was baptized
in seas that I was cruising

quit jobs if interfered with writing process
but then I chose powders, whiskey showers for fighting progress
saloon martyr lost his June Carter,
threw away those life given goods that few barter

When it rains in slow lanes we move faster
the ones who swaps the worlds greenest grass for new pastures
this boundary crippled world is too small for what we after
so all those things your feeling are real, through tears and laughter

Sentimental to a fault
field of vision mostly sepia, tears leaking out the vault,
heart bleeding by default,
but filled with too much hope to recieve the fate Im sold
