I don't expect ya, to be impressed
Would you concede to let me keep on living
If I infect ya, I'll be depressed
Would you believe that I can be forgiving
I want to make peace with the world
But too much of it hurts me
When I think about what I can do

How the fuck can I make time
To do what I must
They say that we have freedom
But it feels like a bust to me
And the times when I try
To find myself work
The man calls me up to rattle my nerves

I can't get out of bed
I want to be fed sweet nectar
How does it affect ya
To see the things you can't have
Go for the grab, I'll have the crab
Cause I can't afford the lobster
All as they try to stop ya
You gotta be keepin' your nose clean

I can't detect ya, I must confess
The problem is I know you don't believe us
If I protect ya, you'll make a mess
But in the end I hope you will retrieve us
I want to have friends in the world
But too many don't like me when I talk about
What we should do

Any luck that I can find
Is better than wealth
I pray to your good reason,
That there's nothing to live up to
And I've tried as I can, to not cast a stone
But then I see my whole world
At the step of a throne

It's hard to get a restart, I'm torn apart
By all the weight, its affecting my heart
And I can feel it skipping a beat
As I'm walking the street and I'm feeling the heat
I have a meeting with a fleeting
And I'm cheating myself again
Cus' all my people have retreated
And there's no one to offend
