Lyrics

Lately it seems like everybody wants to tell me just what they think is best for me
Like I ain’t have the smarts or heart to be successful
Here all by myself, did it all by myself
Fuck, I’m all liquored up, got the room spinning now
Man, I’m thinking about how I let everyone down
Just because I denied all them 9 to 5 jobs
Because it ain’t what I want, fuck it
I’m from a place where I disgraced the sheep leaving the stable, going back to the barn
I’ll leave my tip on the table, pay your tab then I’m out
Just to slick insist I got more then y’all, and I’ll give until I’m gone
Man, I swear to god that for you to be proud
I’d need a white collar living, so I’m leaving tomorrow
Going back to the dark

I love you, but you don’t know if u can stake it out in this darkness
You’re going to have to watch me drift into the darkness
I’m going to be alone, I only know the darkness

Now I ain’t got no 10 year plan; I was asked
Cold January nights, I think a part of me just laughed
Because I was born without a map, you’ll probably never understand
I’m still finding my way like castaways towards the sand
But that’s just what my journey be, life without purchased degrees
At first it was exactly what you loved and made you flirt with me
Now I ain’t so sure if I was nothing but a burden
Be it the nights we never slept a wink, eventually you turned on me
Who knows? Been a while since I spoke
And told all y’all the truth while u insist my shit’s a joke
And I’m trying to forget and quit, my parents wonder why is it
I’m waking up at noon, but I was up ‘til 8
trying this

I love you, but you don’t know if u can stake it out in this darkness
You’re going to have to watch me drift into the darkness
I’m going to be alone, I only know the darkness
I need you to see that if you’re going to ride with me you’ll meet the darkness
And yeah, that’s alright with me if you ain’t want this
But I could be whoever I want in the darkness
