Megaphone

Album: [Untitled]

I don’t need your help

I don’t need your lies

To the whispers in my head

With the voice that sounds just like mine

Saying no I can’t

Without a thought sometimes

Through a speech made in my gut

With the wings of the butterflies I hide

I used to drink to tame it

Because my sober mind

Couldn’t find a way peace

It’d pause the war for a gunfight

So I’m saying now

Ten years dry as dust

Looking you right in the eye

And I ain’t high, and I ain’t drunk

 

I’ma take my time

And you can take your bad advice

You can eat your lies

Choke on your tongue

Swallow the knife

And like water to the rain man

Like color to the rainbow

Like giving to the same hand

 

I’m good on my own

I can do this alone

I need you to go

How’s this for a megaphone

 

Inside of my eye there’s a Brutus

Like inside of me I’ve got a Judas

Like part of me likes the venom

Like there’s a me in me that’s hoping

I won’t get up and get ‘em

Like there’s a little percent of me

That’s an enemy

It doesn’t wanna win

It wants to Kennedy anything that could better me

It’s pitching me jealousy

Hissing through my ambition

And I’ll admit, it’s in the soul of my melodies

And the trick is - I’m kinda buying that

Would I be ambitious without this lion on my back

Is this prison in me mine, like I designed that

Am I sick but don’t mind ‘cause the wine that I like is the dimetapp? - oof

Yeah, I know I’m addicted to the lies that I’m blind to

Now I’m on a mission in my mind just to find you

And I know you listen - this a light to ignite you

to get you like flies in the bayou

 

‘Cause like water to the rain man

Like color to the rainbow

Like giving to the same hand

 

I’m good on my own

I can do this alone

I need you to go

How’s this for a megaphone
