No One Will Ever Leave You

1.
I'm feeling uncomfortable While making people feel uncomfortable That I get mad when they don't take my face seriously. I know I'm not the brownest one But sometimes I feel I'm the only one Who likes to talk about this white-washed breed. You think I'm exaggerating. But when a cop stops your dad from dropping you off On a quiet suburban street, do you think I'm wrong? Don't laugh when I exert some pride. Not talking about it doesn't solve anything. Not talking about it doesn't solve anything. It's not that you're insensitive. I couldn't care less if your sensitive. It's the fact that you and I still consider myself white. When I see someone in the crowd With the same face as mine, You have no idea what that feels like. You say, "It's just a joke." Well, I'll say, "They're just feelings." You'll laugh it off again While I'll still wish that my skin was peeling.

Keep fucking up on a bus on your way back home Buzzing phone at your hip that you ignore You're gonna die alone. I wanna break an arm or a leg before I get bored. You've got to help me out, you've got to be right back when you're out in the cold.

In Response 00:45
I know we said, "We'd sleep in all that." So that we can stay up all night Wake me up at the sunset If you got memories, Then no one will ever leave at the sunset If you got memories, Then no one will ever leave you

Ride my bike to the place where I'll spend the night, then the other. Backwards hat out of fashion, into the light of your brother's jacket. Is the air clear? Are we clear here? I'm sick of the drugs and the pointless coldness. It's overdramatic. I'd walk you home, if you were up for it But truth be told--you make me nervous I'll hold the door if you'll let me. But if chivalry's dead--I'll go home with my mistake, shake the whole thing off. Bring myself to wake up when the morning comes. The butcher shoppe is only a street down. Machine gun is chasing slugs away. You're bored as hell, I see you trying on your makeup But you hate yourself, that's why you're lonely when you wake up. Ride my bike up the hill with the sun in my eyes. Getting tired. Sweaty brown hat under a helmet, and into the light of a conversation. It's a swift ride down the E line. I'll miss you when I'm gone but I won't miss the fucking incline. Can't get the fear of failure off my mind. You'd tell me if my life was on the line. Keep telling myself that I'm right this time, But if it's all the same, I'll fly home with my regrets, Hope you don't wake up, See the spot in my bed Where I was last month. Sorry I'm a flake. Tend to fuck things up. When you see me take off You'll be glad I'm gone.
