Been slippin like grease at 90 degree my knees hit the pavement I wanted to scream I wanted to call for a priest I don’t even believe in I feel fairly decent This is barely reason for a smile How can I fall more Been at the bottom floor down at the deep end Im swimmin look up see you mouth and eyes wide grinning your teeth I’ve blurred out every face I pray These smiles can’t all be fake My god Are you happy at all? Cus’ Ive seen you smiling and I want to feel whatever you feel that makes you smile that way Are you happy at all? My god Are you happy at all? Cus’ Ive seen you smiling and I want to feel whatever you feel that makes you smile that way Are you happy at all? Cus’ I don’t remember how it feels

I wish I was a farmer I wish I was an astronaut So I could feed my family And then take them somewhere very far away yeah I wanna be a traveler I wanna witness everything And then bring you to my bedside I dream about it even when I wake up I think that I might lost my mind Think that I might lost my mind You don't care about the words that I sing So I don't care about the burden it brings This is something that I gotta try This is just something that I gotta try I don't care about the birds and the bees No I just want you to have what you need But that’s how you feel? That’s how you feel. Yeah. You just see failure How could it be? How could you think that? You should know better Pray to the stars Pray to the moon Pray something moves me I can't be swayed. Nah. I think it's too late. I wish I was a farmer I wish I was an astronaut So I could feed my family And then take them somewhere very far away ya I wanna be a traveler I wanna witness everything And then bring you to my bedside I dream about it even when I wake up

You're doing too much for me When the lights turn on I can see all the things you hid from me What’s wrong with showing a little extra? I can’t sit still Why you wanna keep everything the same? None of its real It’s just all a game Am I too hyper, or are you too serious? I think you’re too serious. You're doing too much for me They too fake and I’m too crazy They don’t want me at the show Sound like hating that don’t phase me Bitch I’m knocking down the door I’m impatient I hate waiting You can miss me with the bull shit Saying I’m too much I know I heard it all before They all losing they too choosy they too cool to hit the floor I got drive and got Em moving uhaul whippin through the course They so live And droolin riding zoomin in and out the Taurus Watch em bussit did too much Im stacking up all my rewards Now I’m fuckin up a bag I got it all cause my persona That was something I didn’t have I dreamt about when I was Broke I was working every night and day and grinding on my own I was certain I’d be poppin if I’m honest knew I got it but these People wanna pull you down When they ain’t got nothing else to do People wanna wear you out When they ain’t got nothing else

Backseat 03:07
You got a Pipe dream Catching up to me on my nitro speed Lucky me Up all night like P Till the sun I see Eyes stuck at noon Hands Ten and two Iced for the track meet Passed up like last week You gotta speak Nicely When asking me for favors I may comply I see illusions bike away Afraid. you want a ride Get in just hop in the backseat Rinse and wash and then repeat It’s spreading like ace Pop In the back seat Hop in the backseat Where you wanna ride to? I can take you anywhere I got the keys and Im starting up the engine Tell me where you wanna go We gon’ ride if you wanna ride Cranking up the gas At the drop of a dime I stop and rewind after me I leave em behind Slowing down? Nah nah Neither am I Know i get to jonesin when the feet on fire Know you wanna ride Ya You Reading my mind dont wanna anytime know you’re Free to decline If you wanna turn it up Go on and crank up-the speed And hop in the backseat Hop in the backseat Where you wanna ride to? I can take you anywhere I got the keys and Im starting up the engine Tell me where you wanna go We gon’ ride if you wanna ride Ain’t afraid of gas We take it slow Or take it fast Don’t slam the door Make mama mad The Colors glow up on the dash Ain’t no other cars out tonight Drive smooth like peanut butter bread all white It’s sweeter than nabisco lanes feel like a disco Dancing off the brights The Street is shining all in the light The stars inviting us to the sky The car feel like it’s gonna take flight It might just take flight

...If you even gotta ask... you dont know On a Porcelain wing look how fragile Look how agile when it’s droppin right in Yeah Really dip low and Really dip low But I Get Up singin like Selena Let me beat it beat it bom bom ya Pretty thing got em all on pause gon’ throw the bare like diddy Kong Charming bet I clean up strong Hit once swear to god got em turned to gollum Crouched down like that And it fold in half Edible in the mouth like grapes So divine Make it rewind Glarin behind bussin out that Mylar tape I don’t know. They all wanna know. ...if you even gotta ask... How he do it like that? Fucking me back Throwing that ass I might really dip low & Play with my friends Play with my fam Play with my funds I might really dip low & You don’t know how far I’ll go On a porcelain wing Fall apart Coulda been cautious Got a bit nauseous as it drops ...If you even gotta ask... You don’t know I’m not even gonna act like I didn’t pass you in a past life Why do I feel gaslit when the whites ask if I’m half white? I want to thank the academy I been acting like you had a chance Satellite out of sight Out your mind actually that to me Sounds alright Sound high strung you should drop the capo Fake fucking friends act Ross and Rachel I grew up in the woods by farms and stables All my best friends were pines and maples We were just kids Stayed up ‘til dawn Typing an email to send to a blog (Oo) We never got a response Maybe I’m glad I forgot I’m feeling that way a lot Feels like a lifetime ago crushing pills in the parking lot Now my enemies looking for a deal Call the record label End up on the phone with me Let my phone look like Saturn Watch that bitch ring

about

I'm excited and grateful to get to share these songs with you all. Me and Lynyn worked on them starting last year through a time of introspection when things were generally bleak. Hopefully these songs will bring you some happiness, peace, awareness or slight improvement to your lives. Making them definitely has done that for me. <3
