Down with the heavy drift feel the undertow,
And then the pulling away from something you hold,
All this shit has gotta stop,
All poppin off inside my brain!
Watch again and you will see to,
I’m taking back what’s mine and yours,
What you can and you deny
This pain is instinct.
No stepping back,
no stepping back,
no stepping back in the real world.
C’mon bring it back,
C’mon then give it back,
No takin back in the real world.
Tell me that you’re pleased to jump
I’m the lyrical wizard, ripping up this pad.
What you say is nothing meaning
I’m the cop, the saint, the primate
I’m illicit to come and change you
But you take it, but you won’t break this pain
But what you can and you deny
The pain is instinct
No stepping back,
Your stepping back,
Your stepping back in the real world
C’mon and give it back,
Just bring it back,
You’re stepping back in the real world.
I’m the only, yes the only
I’m the only taste for your cruel mouth
I’m the only, yes the only
I’m the only taste for your cruel mouth
For reach I stay inside
Would you walk away, don’t hide
To reach I stay inside
But now I’m feeling you
I don’t come around, anymore because of you.
Mama tell me why I’ve been, upset to this point in.
Mama tell me why, Mama tell me why,
Mama tell me why, Mama tell me why,
Swear you!
Somebody yell, where there’s problem I know it’s true
So you lie and I stare, who gave you my space in?
I don’t need this shit it’s not alright,
When you walk away and you find,
I don’t need this shit it’s not alright,
When you walk away, yes you walk away yeah.
Tell em all not to get inside.
You are always gonna be in my constant sight
You are always gonna be in my constant sight
You are always gonna be in my constant sight.
Guess at the crawl with the show it’ll bring
(Scream I can’t figure out)
