lyrics

Chinese kid from Delaware, no combination of who I am is supposed to be here on top of these snares
But one step after another, I keep climbin these stairs, turnin up my face to heaven like I’m supposed to be there
It’s been tumultuous years if we’re really keepin it real
Pastor Karen assures me that’s the first step to be healed (God bless)
The Fungs brought me out to LA, I wasn’t really ready, same book different pages situation got messy, and if I’m really confessing, I have to clear my chest to the ex who also fulfilled the role of best friend
Went bad, my bad, repent, that’s it, but still, we don’t talk, oh well, same ---- (same, ----.)

The Same Old Story
S.O.S., no reply, I’m so sorry
Sometimes ashamed that I still get on the stage and share my life thru all these pages without reconciliating but YOU know how much I’ve let down my closest ones, broke with them, still it brings you JOY when you hear me share my broken songs so I’m up 5 AM, laptop out, Chris’s house, YouTube on, battle raps, iPhone 5, reading Psalms

No Elton John but I see the circling of life, even if you miss it once, it still can come round on you twice
Either I’m on shrooms or I picked one up, extra life, now I’m on my second wind, second life (Jesus Christ!)

I remember at Marco’s graduation, talkin at length with Jason bout my resignation, did YOU know that I was this close to never writing this verse, never shooting Red Lines, just quittn and finding work? Word was my words wasn’t, enough to get it buzzin, YouTube views suffrin, anxiety causin me to make moves that I knew were untrue, now I can see clearly like that reggae song in Cool Running

Every twelve steps I take, thank the higher power I am not defined by my mistakes
I’m no saint, I’m no gimmick, I’m not great, no entertainer, I’m just making music so my people make it through the day (ok?)

We break up, have bad luck, stuck in jobs we don’t want, our dream jobs don’t want us, lose our faith, lose our moms, lose our face, lose our calm, lose our case, lose our car, but we can’t
shake
the love.
(can’t shake the love.)
