Yeah, hey, I want to travel south this year
I won't, won't prevent safe passage here

Why you act crazy?
Not an act maybe
So close a lady
Shifty eyes, shady

Yeah, hey Yeah, tears that soak a callous heart

Why you act frightened?
I am enlightened
Your weakness builds me, so someday you'll see

I stay away

Why you act crazy?
Not an act maybe
So close a lady
Shifty eyes, shady

I stay away, I stay away, I stay away, I STAY A WAY

    not to sound so vague but i think it might be a terrible day of crack cocaine useage probably too many rocks when the heroin supply was in short supply most opiate addicts like myself hate crack and rather have opiates anyday of the week but in depression u indulge cause ur sick so of being in withdrawals but in the long run u actually feel worse from the crack cause its a terrible suicidal comedown and a greedy drug overall
