A man bled out this morning I’m the antecedent
This, was not the first time I fell in my arms
The pain of being pure again, walking home at 4am. Hours to go before it ends,
It’s hella dark, and I can’t avoid the heat
2 train’s hella long, too high to sleep, my crooked bones
You’re screaming and cursing, I’m smiling, you’re killing me.

Is anybody really up for this one
If I don’t hold nothing back
Is anybody up for this one
I know that, you never ask.
A beast from the southern coast, A beast from the southern

Last night I looked at you I knew I didn’t really fear that much
I lie for a living now that’s why I really can’t tell you stuff
The way that we all know how it’s all gonna end I hate america
I just wait for my horses now x2

To have a life you love but know you’re undeserving,
Last night I got so fucked up near lost my job
It’s nice to think that folks are near, waking up was hard this year
But if I didn’t move the way I did then tell me how else could be.

Could I be?
Could I be?

I came w/ a mouth full of blood,
Im hurt cuz no one can see me
Don’t ask, why dont I
Want to give you solace

Tie me up
