lyrics

I was raised in a bubble
Face to the bubble
Face to the window safe from the trouble
crack rock apocalypse chased through the rubble
My auntie’s a zombie, same as my uncle
Projects we stayed for a couple
Stayed in my inner space like Hubble
I came back to Earth but same days I struggled
These Western languages arranged like puzzles
I’m livin off a late night hustle
Living off pain, living off saying I love you
and there’s no daylight in the jungle
cause the police’ll beat the daylights from you
my insides rumble
I seek protection from the winds, I’m bundled
My ego’s an inch high, humbled
Trying to resist I got ten white knuckles
So I’m going back within my bubble

I counted my accomplishments
When I was finished
my whole shell dissolved
I fluctuate in confidence
It cost me so much to pretend I’m strong
I don’t want to but I’m gone
I don’t want to but I’m gone
I don’t want to but I’m gone
I didn’t want to but I’m gone

American anxiety dang, I be trying to hang
start out shouting, now I’m quietly sang
I can’t be the President but won’t die in a gang
Its your stereotype but its alive in my brain
so the effect is really kind of the same
chains like I’m a slave, its psychological so I can behave
in future days
I’ll be wondering why I was afraid
While I was anxious when I could of raged
the heart bangs
but the minds in the way
and makes waves without pushing away
its makes phrases that I wouldn’t say
I can’t hang is what I’m trying to say
I got to run up in this cage for a couple of days
so I can not feel strange for a couple of days
I’m buckled up in a plane
I’m stuck wondering what its gonna save
Its clinical I’m fitted with this cynical gaze
I counted my accomplishments
When I was finished
my whole shell dissolved
I fluctuate in confidence
It cost me so much to pretend I’m strong
I don’t want to but I’m gone
I don’t want to but I’m gone
I don’t want to but I’m gone
I didn’t want to but I’m gone
