I can worry, I can overthink things.
That's exactly when I tend to want to drink things.
Tend to wanna smoke things ‘til I realized there's no thing outside of me.
That kinda helped me grow wings.
Listen up. I think this is dope:
To love is very different than to own.
Let that sink in.
I grew my hair but never lost my J Dilla vibe.
Airplane mode: don't kill the vibe.
I had to remind people I was still alive.
I had to remind people of what's real inside.
Yeah, yeah I'm the 'I Took a Pill in' guy.
But even more beautiful with no pill inside.
Feel the vibe?
I wanted to be Deion. I was more Wojciechowski.
My friends gon' hit the club, I tell 'em go without me.
There's a lot that these people don't know about me.
I've always been that dude though, no Lebowski (haha stupid).
Old friends never tell me that I seem different.
Ashamed of the way that I used to treat women.
Embarrassed but I'll never lie.
Mac is dead; many more are dead inside.
Hideous thoughts in this head of mine.
I'll choose different ones.
Life hit me in the face but I didn't run.
Perhaps Michigan will be the place my kids are from.
Ram Dass is the man I got the vision from.
It's alright (yeah).
It's alright (yeah).
I donated all my Jordans.
Didn't do a post, they were taking up the space that I needed to grow.
That was a Sage Francis line; I stole it,
But there was no better way to say that
There is no future, no time.
Look at yourself; don't be so bovine.
Courage used to be something that I couldn't find.
People scared to look at their dreams so they look at mine (yeah).
Whatever makes you feel good inside.
I was in the gym the other day in Los Angeles.
And I saw all of the beautiful bodies
Running on the treadmills, staring at the screens.
And it reminded me of hamsters running on the wheel.
And that's when I really decided right then and there
I'm not going to be a hamster on a wheel.
I'm gon' do it.
Twitter is apoplectic,
Squirrels with acorns.
I said it before:
Ships are safe in the harbor, but that ain't what ships are made for.
I say I am not my haircut, I'm not my body,
Not my clothes; I'm something much more beautiful,
Deeper than even I know.
Took me thirty years to wake up and write this song.
Took me thirty years to realize nothing is wrong.
