lyrics

First thing they told me
Don't snitch on your homies
Next thing you know
I'm cold and dying lonely
Must have been something that they not told me
Must have said something made you not hold me
Must have took something because I feel hunted
Figured out I could have everything I wanted
But then I didn't want it
Because it was too easy
Next thing you know
Not a damn thing please me
Cliched and cheesy
That's how you see me
Yet you're watching E-news
and Q.T.ing with your TV
Who's seeing 3-D
Imax and Disney
Man please forgive me if I sound like a hippie
But wow
I'm tripping off the shit I see daily
Work a day job
There's not enough you could pay me
My time is priceless
Later for the monkeys with flashlights
Hollering about whose shine the brightest
Girls break their necks
But my lack of a check
Is affecting my flyness
Well excuse me your highness
Blankies like Linus
Emotional me
But my asymmetry receive a B minus
There's always something there to remind us
Emotional baggage we can't put behind
I hope someone find us soon
We're all alone in our rooms
Just waiting to be touched like Midas
The Lord made man in his likeness
For what just so he'd have someone to fight with
Looking for long term in a world of impermanence
What about a man you can spend the damn night with
Man I'm not like this
How could I be so self righteous
I'm tripping off the stereotype
That's been giving to me as an emcee
Whatever it be
I swear to god that tonight I'm the hypest

Look at me all night
While I hold your coat
I want to give it up
But you don't want to let it go
Keep saying it'll be all right
But I know it won't
Y'all so scared to do something wrong
and I can tell
I want it the most

I hope you find it in your heart to forgive me
I fell so hard and I thought you fell with me
Couldn't believe when I leave you don't miss me
Try to solve the mystery
By thinking about our history
But that's when it hit me
I was still obsessing on a blast from the past
But the past does not fit me
I grew out of the clothes ten songs ago
Seems like so long ago
But now your eyes can't get me
Because I've seen what lies behind them
Tragedy upon tragedy
Collected by none other than her majesty
Ask myself why it had to be
I try not to hate but you stay mad at me
I feel the gravity pulling at my heart
But I was built for this
I bear no more guilt for this
I bury my sword up to the hilt for this
Life is looking like some scary fun shit to live
Underdog out
I'm going in
Somebody root for this

Look at me all night
While I hold your coat
I want to give it up
But you don't want to let it go
Keep saying it'll be all right
But I know it won't
Y'all so scared to do something wrong
and I can tell
I want it the most

about

Coolzey Los Angeles, California

Golden era hip-hop roots planted in black Iowa dirt are the foundation. Growth tempered by alternative era rock influence. This along with a love for the juxtaposition of the dark, horrific nature of life paired with a slapstick and comedic view of the world allow for a wide, unpredictable arsenal ranging from soul-spilling indie bedroom rock to wise-cracking battle rap and on to radio pop. ... more
