lyrics

(I built these walls so quick,
it was easier to climb yours
than to tear mine brick by brick.
i'm never really sure
if my words do stick
or get caught up on the door.
I'm not as fit as I used to be,
it takes a bit more.

Six hits will get you lit but who needs it, when you're high like me?
I'm half asleep having a dream, writing on the sky using time as ink.
As my plane descends I hope my headache ends.
The sunlight sends vibes right through my lens.
Music is my medicine and rhythm is my etiquette.
My home is where your heart is, and as long I'm breathing, ain't no reason I would let go.
Tracing lines, you dance around the corners of my mental.
You restored my faith in the future, and put my head up on a pedestal.
You invaded my veins and you filled them with life.
You invaded my brain and you filled it with lights.

Where I come from, we build bridges over mud. I've given you everything I could ever give someone.
Where I come from, we build bridges over mud. I've given you everything I could ever give someone.

Where i'm from, we own masks stronger than bones.
And we're clever whenever we show 'em.
That's a fallacy, to say that I haven't tried or put in the time to see your galaxy...I'm reaching out from my balcony!
This mic is a brush and that world is a canvas.
One that I can touch but I can't rush what sand does.
Your love is a crutch, one that I can trust.
This can't be the last of our stanzas.

I've tried to say this before but I never get it out.
All the words I set aside for this wasted time.
It's heavier than I am letting on.
