Nobody listens anymore, what are we talking for? We’ve been here before, do we want more? But if the morning waits for the sun Well when it’s all said and done will we all become one? Look what we’ve become Most of us barely even care, we’re all in our own despair All in life is fair but tell me how did you get there? And as the evening waits on the stars Someone is travelling far never mind who they’ve left at home So why are we alone? We’re only people, we’re only what we were taught to be Children become what they see, so what about me? How can we be far when we’re so near? Well maybe sometime next year. I heard that you’re fine my dear And when I call I hope that you’ll still be here

Alfa Verse: I was not prepared She called me a good person, I was like “You lost me there.” I got fam in foster care cos it wasn’t my cross to bear Lots of prayers long distance but life’s not as fair For a child with a problem parent Not comparing or judging, not as caring Must have lost my bearings My vision is tunnel, I live in a bubble But living’s enough, I’ve been in the struggle So I send Ps but can’t listen to troubles Forgive me I love you but I live a life paved with lies Everyday I say I’m fine, then lay awake at night Contemplating ways to fly but then I stabilise I stay alive Chorus Take My time, So they only see me in right state of mind We all rise and decline I don’t want to live a life they design Take My time, So they only see me in right state of mind We all rise and decline Lex Amor Verse: What do I owe? What do I give? Feel like Babylon owes me everything Bus stops in winter taught me all about a wish - darg Feeling, I been feeling things Demons ere I musta let a couple in Something for the cold Something for my questions marks My yes’s and my no’s Is this everything I get? Spirit feeling it but my mind a bloody mess Can’t lie my guy, my mind a bloody mess Tonight I think I hit the belly, mazza mazza what a mazza Wish someone would tell me I just woke up In a sweat Not much I can do to force a happy ever after Imma Pick the ink, swish my wrist, pray that it connects again I’m praying it connects Not sure what I’m doing here been hoping for the best Still Fidgeting and restless Consciously in awe of possibility and essence I just think I need a rest Would you please give me a sec Tonight Jigga told me she believes the ends’ll make amends Wish someone would tell me I been fighting with this passa Why’s When’s and How’s drowning out my fathers “Yo” I know cold like everyone I know‘s known a mazza Praying vim’ll back it But jacket’s wither in the cold Shoulda known Dash my phone Let me lie down here in silence man I’m tired...

Serious face cos it’s really a race Trying to stabilise while my health deteriorates My fever leaves me a delirious state Now I’m growing weary of fakes, here to replace They cheer me and wait, until they hear a mistake I don’t wanna lose my drive so I’m steering away Plus I got a call saying that her period’s late So I’m opening my calendar and clearing the dates It’s fate, I’m just a battler, too black to be tatted up A hunter a gatherer, lunge if you’re bad enough Been thrown downstairs I clung to the banister I used to have it rough, saw my plan erupt Now I’m on the settee playing 3 months of soul caliber I missed brekkie need lunch for the stamina Young and dumb like a man in love Meant to vote (do the ballot) but I’d rather see the planet crushed, Organic Rust I should be a fan of your kind But you focus on the gram and the size All your followers are tapping the like Waiting for the chance to be the man you’re beside All this surface talk while I’m knackered inside I’d rather burn them all like I’m Anakin sky All these planets collide, trying to capitalise It’s the furthest I’ve even been but I’m lagging behind At the front of the queue for the back of the line With the devil’s idle hands and the passion of christ Trying to plot a map in my mind While you push the panic button, I’m pushing 29 Some people are pushing daises I could die anytime Behind enemy lines of by friendly fire Why does everything we hold close damage us? I’m trusting, young and dumb like I had a buzz When it all gives way and I’ve had enough I got a few words for the man above When I’m Organic Rust
