She asked me “Aren’t you exhausted”
I said “That’s what they make drugs, for isn’t it?”
Please don’t judge, I need your love while I’m still in it
Vision blurrin’, that’s how I know that I’m feelin’ it
Are you hearin’ it?
God whispers, guide me to a higher plane
How I came down back to earth and got high again
I done gained nothin’ but pain in this form
I could find warmth, but I stayed in the storm, yeah
Look in my eyes, viewer discretion is advised
Only time I feel alive when I’m on the shit
Standard of livin’ so high, penthouse suite and we aligned
How the feelin’ so divine it get hard to kick
Yeah, it’s lonely, I’m holdin’ strong, I keep it calm
‘Cause they love me, I’m Ho Chi Minh in Vietnam
Oh it’s lonely, I’m holdin’ strong, I keep it calm
‘Cause they love me, I’m Ho Chi Minh in Vietnam
Look I’m in control, Napalm in my soul
I bomb let it burn, how long ’til my turn come?
Who gon’ bleed with me in a war of one?
Who my enemy? I’m the only one
Self destruction is imminent, dimmin’ my light
I been livin’ my life like the cinemas
Picture me rollin’, cue the Serotonin
I been runnin’, low but it keep me in the moment
Damn it feel golden, neck and wrist golden
Beauty in the eye of the holder
And man, I been holdin’ and holdin’ and holdin’ and holdin’ on
