lyrics

Verse 1

Try and walk up the hill, staying still, treadmill
Exertion for real, so tired is how I feel
Never give up but I’m feeling to tall for the ceiling
To big for the hidey hole, small for a villain
No I never had a home in my head, so gone
All alone ‘till I’m dead, no one
2019, fuck a baby now Brenda's got a gun
Nobody give a fuck about nothing on the run
On the cool, on the down low, I see the streets is seedy
Never beat me ‘cause I’m leaving the rest of ‘em being greedy
Being fearless ain’t easy, I know that the vultures see me
On the scene but never leave the house, it’s the bottle, I’m the genie
I’m a medium through the flow, I speak to the spirit
But I’m speaking to myself ‘cause none of ‘em seem to hear it
I sit alone in silence, stress forever grow
Add pressure to the sinus, my guess that it will blow

Hook 1

Cut the lights, yeah, live my life in the dark
Cut the lights, yeah, you can’t lie to the heart
Cut the lights, yeah, keep your gaze at the clock
‘Cause when minutes turn to hours then the days will never stop

Verse 2

I can see the pressure pressing down every second
Death beckons but I’m stepping away from his presence
I wanna live, the words sound so ridiculous
From somebody who lived like this, drown in the abyss
I’m mounted up in this bitch, and riding front of the vanguard
Enemies getting close, catapults hitting the land hard
Metaphor for a guy not quite right, the man scarred
Brain in turmoil, big fires leave the land charred
I wanna do good but often misunderstood
They see the flames in my eyes and always ending up shook
A wise king surveys the board before he switches with the rook
Only after knight and bishop leave the picture, read the book
See the clues, solve the puzzle, all we really lack is time
Mind’s vision getting fuzzy, seems I really have to try
To see the picture clear as day, days go by, the nights fly
Hours eat the minutes then the seconds die

Hook 1

Cut the lights, yeah, live my life in the dark
Cut the lights, yeah, you can’t lie to the heart
Cut the lights, yeah, keep your gaze at the clock
‘Cause when minutes turn to hours then the days will never stop
Cut the lights, yeah, live my life in the dark
Cut the lights, yeah, you can’t lie to the heart
Cut the lights, yeah, keep running ‘till your free
Shut the mind off, eyes shut, until you sleep

Until you sleep, until you sleep, until you sleep, until you sleep
