lyrics

Tell me something that I don't know
Tell me something that I don't know
I run away from the truth and I
I ran away from the truth, it's like
Tell me something that I don't know
Tell me something that I don't know
I run away from the truth and I
I ran away from the truth, it's like

I see the issues, got no need for the mirror
Got the foggiest of memories from bottles of clear
I want the eyes on me but stay tripping on stares
And I tend to overreact when I'm under prepared
I need another 20 years so I can fix the mistakes
Borderline about to board a flight and hit the escape
Half my body soak in sadness, other half of it ache
I'm a walking contradiction still just stuck in my place
I don't know
I should go, is this considered loitering?
Love and hate get interchanged, the train of thought is Freudian
Back into the future, boutta get me a Delorean
You gotta have your head on straight to know that you're disoriented
I made a couple of trips
2am to Echo Park working double the shifts
Didn't make a fucking cent but I loved what I did
I want to die as an example of the way that I lived
So, that means I know it's coming but I'm ready
Making jokes bout drowning in my tears as they release the levee
I see the fatal flaw in this, I'll pay the pretty penny
A complicated optimist and opposite, depending
See ya bending all the rules and breaking all your promises
It's benefiting you, but hurting your accomplices
Circumvent the truth and never tell em bout the consequences
I don't know bout you but this shit make me lose my confidence
It's common sense a gut reaction
Knowing when to push or pass it
Learning how to listen when ya body say the shit is backwards
I don't recognize the signs but I can emulate the patterns
Half the time I'm wrong, the other half the time don't even matter
Ayy, I got some learning to do
I'll be the first one to admit it I'm done running from truth
And I know, you probably heard it all before
You can run away from truth but why deny it when it's yours?
