BLISS

LISTEN:

 

(verse 1)
I was raised by a television
I let it make all of my decisions
They say that I never listen
That’s a lie
Matter fact I 
Never question why 
Every time
It’s a problem when I mention rights 
Inequality is part of life
Don’t ever ask about black lives
 
They told me on the news 
So it must be true 
And only what they choose 
Is worth talking about 
 
I let ’em talk all day 
Let ’em fill my brain 
With fear and pain 
Follow it up with an ad 
For a thing I can grab 
To solve a problem they created 
 
(chorus)
Ignorance is bliss
Don’t wanna feel, wanna know, wanna see 
How the world is 
I just escape 
Running away is easy 
I just escape 
Running away is easy 
Don’t wanna feel, wanna know, wanna see 
How the world is 
 
(verse 2)
Here’s the space that I’ve been given
Never color outside the lines
I just sell my time
For a paycheck that buys me life
Go to sleep, wake up, do it again
All I see is make-up and diamond rings
I don’t know my name without possessions 
Keep mistaking paper for oxygen
 
Because that’s what they teach 
Everytime I watch TV
Whatever’s on the screen 
Is worth thinking about 
 
I let ’em talk all day 
Let ’em fill my brain 
With fear and pain 
Follow it up with an ad 
For a thing I can grab 
To solve a problem they created 
 
(chorus)
Ignorance is bliss
Don’t wanna feel, wanna know, wanna see 
How the world is 
I just escape 
Running away is easy 
I just escape 
Running away is easy 
Don’t wanna feel, wanna know, wanna see 
How the world is

SIDEWALKS

LISTEN:

 

(verse 1)
Cut me and I’ll bleed strong
Can’t keep me inside these walls
I’ma blow ’em down 
Watch ’em tumble to the ground 
Try to make me feel wrong
For fighting for my freedom
I’ma air you out
And I’m gonna get loud 
 
You can’t fit me in a box till I’m dead
You want to put out my fire 
Oh, I’ma start a riot
I wish you would try it
Trace your steps, cover ’em with gasoline 
Strike a match, call it my masterpiece
Rewind it back, do it again, you’ve never seen
Fighting back, until you come at me
 
(chorus)
How them sidewalks feel?
Walking safely on the side of the road
How them sidewalks feel? 
 
(verse 2)
Cut me and I’ll bleed strong
Can’t keep me inside these walls
I’ma blow ’em down 
Watch ’em tumble to the ground 
Try to make me feel wrong
For fighting for my freedom
I’ma air you out
And I’m gonna get loud 
 
No matter where I am, I’m free in my head
They want me to be quiet 
Oh, I’ma start wildin’
You’re gonna see the devil smiling
You like living life with the safety on
You’re scared to death you might break a bone
You’re wasting all your life on fear
Tell me
 
(chorus)
How them sidewalks feel?
Walking safely on the side of the road
How them sidewalks feel?
 
(bridge)
Walking safely on the side of the road
Watching me curve highway patrol
They play you like football, football
Obeying like a good dog, good dog
Had a taste of life and I want some more 
You stay inside locking the door
And you don’t know your mind’s not free
 
(chorus)
How them sidewalks feel?
Walking safely on the side of the road
How them sidewalks feel?
 
You can’t fit me in a box till I’m dead
No matter where I am, I’m free in my head

DONE DAYS

LISTEN:

 

Done, done
Done, da-da-done, done, done
Done
Done, da-da-done, done, done
Done, done, done
Done, da-da-done, done, done
Done
Done, da-da-done, done, done
 
(verse 1)
I lost my job today
Something ’bout cutbacks
The boss sent me away
But I don’t beg, I don’t beg
Fuck that
Got a lot of bills to pay
Another bounced rent check
Not a dollar to my name
Do you feel my pain
Do you feel my pain
 
(chorus)
It’s a free country
But it ain’t a free life
I’ve got to keep running
To be able to survive
What’s time worth in money
I can only save up one
I’ve got to do something
Before my days are done
 
(verse 2)
I’ve got so much on my mind
I’m trying not to look back
Guess I’m walking home tonight
But I’ma keep chasing dreams
What’s next
Long as I don’t lose sight
That any kind of setback
Could be a blessing in disguise
I’ma be alright
I’ma be alright
 
(chorus)
It’s a free country
But it ain’t a free life
I’ve got to keep running
To be able to survive
What’s time worth in money
I can only save up one
I’ve got to do something
Before my days are done
 
(bridge)
Tunnel vision for my dreams
On a mission to succeed
Competition only me
Competition only me
Tunnel vision for my dreams
On a mission to succeed
Competition only me
Competition only me
 
(chorus)
It’s a free country
But it ain’t a free life
I’ve got to keep running
To be able to survive
What’s time worth in money
I can only save up one
I’ve got to do something
Before my days are done

LOVE YOURSELF

LISTEN:

 

(verse 1)
You work your fingers to the bone
So you can buy all the latest clothes
And you starve yourself for size zero
But skipping meals don’t make you feel whole
So you take a selfie with some cleavage
Make-up on but you don’t need it
You’re beautiful
But without 100 likes you don’t believe it
 
(chorus)
Hey
If all you had was just yourself
Would you be poor or drown in wealth?
Don’t place your looks above your health
Love yourself
Love yourself
Don’t place your looks above your health
Love yourself
Love yourself
 
(verse 2)
You can dye your hair or change your eyes
But there’s no filter for your mind
Do you even know who you are? 
You can’t use concealer on your heart
 
When you look in the mirror 
All you see is what’s missing
When you’re the only one in the world 
You’re the only one in the world
With your reflection 
 
(chorus)
Hey
If all you had was just yourself
Would you be poor or drown in wealth?
Don’t place your looks above your health
Love yourself
Love yourself
Don’t place your looks above your health
Love yourself
Love yourself
 
(bridge)
Hearts in the air
Put ’em up for love 
You’re a superstar 
Hardship ain’t gonna take us down
Show ’em what you got
Hearts in the air
Put ’em up for love 
Say I’m a superstar
Hardship ain’t gonna take me down
I’ma show ’em what I got 
 
(chorus)
Hey
If all you had was just yourself
Would you be poor or drown in wealth?
Don’t place your looks above your health
Love yourself
Love yourself
Don’t place your looks above your health
Love yourself
Love yourself
