1. Flowers To My Demons Pick my naps in public, I’m a happy tree I’m a Ross painted pretty bitch, Shout out Lil B But I know what the city needs, I can hear her speak “I don’t like you. Un-invite you. You’re my allergy” Dark as nitro but my heart is light as Streep’s I can be so damn indecisive when it comes to me I don’t know what this feeling means, my reflection screams “I don’t like you. Un-invite you. You’re my allergy” I sent flowers to my demons After I cast them out I turn back and invite them If this microphone could see me Then you’d find out that I mostly live in silence Staring sideways at my fears Till they find out it’s not my concern to hide them I still shower with my demons Tried to fight it now I’m not afraid to like it I need you need something new I need you I need something new I need you need something new I need you I need something new I need you need something new I need you I need something new I need you need something new I need you I need something new I sent flowers to my demons After I cast them out I turn back and invite them If this microphone could see me Then you’d find out that I mostly live in silence I need you need something new I need you I need something new I need you need something new I need you I need something new I need you need something new I need you I need something new I need you need something new I need you I need something new

4. Everyone I Loved I’ve been changing with my age and These ain’t phases I’m still that nigga But now, Different things I used to care ‘bout now just wear me out Everything I love turns into dust I try to Stop my brain when It starts to fade away to new terrain Try to catch myself when I keep complaining Everyday I feel it changing me Everything I loved now turns me off I’m concerned with the things I’ve learned It’s a little bit disconcerting Wish I never learned Wish I never learned about I can’t never Trust my elders or my friends again Everyone of them has let me down I’m afraid that I’m too jaded and I’m impatient. I’m not waiting. And I’m chasing Money. Women. Cash. Pussy. Racks. I need Ass mmm All my family I never call I love em but we’re drifting apart But I know they're all having trouble Understanding why I chose this route Everyone of them has turned to dust And I hope my folks still pray for my soul Even though I strayed from it all Will I get erased? I don’t want to fade all alone And I hope my folks pray for my soul Even though I strayed from it all Will I get erased? I don’t want to fade into dust
