lyrics

[shakelous]
each day i wake up more miserable than the last
clocking in and out of work, watch a couple hours pass
inhale some fresh air and lock myself away from that
and spend whatever times left up on xbox or making tracks

i love the isolation,
that's why i cut everyone the fuck out my life with no hesitation
i'm lacking patience and i'm craving innovation
but i can't seem to find a single shred of motivation

yo i'm drowning myself in malt liquor to
break out of this rut and pick a different mood
but nothing ever seems to change, bought a couple beats today
probably never use em but at least my boy grizzly's paid

sometimes i wish that i had chosen a different path
but there's no way to go back i burnt all my photographs
and on behalf of fucking my mental state
i'm sorry for the drama but there's no way to set it straight

i just keep sleeping
i just keep sleeping
i just keep sleeping
sleeping my days away
i just keep sleeping
i just keep sleeping
i just keep sleeping
sleeping my days away

[gloom rap]
i cant believe that i woke up again
after this cocktail of oxys and henn
handful of valium makes the room spin
my outlooks been bleak when does happiness begin

fuck! i'd be content with content
why was i born? i never gave consent
now i struggle on a daily basis
to get through another day even though i hate it

can't stand myself, won't look in the mirror
cuz everytime i do my ugliness is clearer
it ain't just physical i can my mindstate
as it deteriates at a high rate

don't wanna deal with any of my problems
on the real i think i've hit rock bottom
cuz now it's common to injest these toxins
often, because that's my best option

i just keep sleeping
i just keep sleeping
i just keep sleeping
sleeping my days away
i just keep sleeping
i just keep sleeping
i just keep sleeping
sleeping my days away

[animus]
trying to wake up, but i stay stuck
in this place of disdain in this hatred in plain sight
these insane fucks make me not wanna say much
to convey what's on my brain so I stay shut

out from the world, i feel like im comatose
wanna overdose on life so my soul can grow
trying to see stars but the city lights won't condone
i'm trying to write a book you people using post it notes

but i'm focused though, trying to hold my nose above
a heap of bullshit that overflows
can't rope a dope forever i gotta throw some blows
my face is broken and swolle

i can't see my target i can't be alarmed
but i can't seem to harness my stampeding heart
trapped in this lucid dream till i'm nullified
this pyramid scheme of control is the lullaby
