So, like, my favorite images are the ones where Someone who isn't supposed to be there Who's like in a space, a space where We were not ever welcomed in, where we were not invited Yet we walk in and we show all the way up People try to put us down by saying She's doing the most; or: He's way too much But, like, why would we want to do the least?
Cheap on your skin, smooth Jewels that ring Shine hit your eyes, black kiss the ring Ruby ebony sides, time Change my eyes for something, cool
A dream never leaving my sight A sun never leaving my side A feeling, a door starts to close I'm feeling the burn in my eyes The eyes of a heavy best Suited to staying indoors like a good nigga I treated the hope like my home And destroyed it, go figure Still proud, best of my abilities Still I think about an exit No one ever will appreciate The way you bare your soul for them too I'm through I'm through
Cheap on your skin, smooth Jewels that ring Shine hit your eyes Black kiss the ring Ruby ebony sides
Nigga, I'm feeling myself Nigga, I'm feeling myself Nigga, I'm still in my zone I'm still in my zone Got big books but I'm broke, I'm broke Nigga, I'm feeling myself Nigga, I'm feeling myself One time for the help One time, one time Two times 'fore I fell Three times for the hopeless feeling Look at how I'm spending my wealth Look at how I'm spending my wealth And I'm feeling myself looking up But then the thoughts start filling me up, me up Nigga, I'm feeling my, nigga, I'm feeling myself Nigga, I'm feeling myself One time for the help When the news is way too fi' And a man get shot on the passenger side Too bad 'cos a nigga went live, went live Nigga, I'm feeling my, nigga, I'm feeling myself Seek what you need to get by Awake with one eye closed In dark black clothes Red and blue lights on my stone Go back to being unknown Relax your hair Tuck your shirt Put your glasses on Play your guitar
