lyrics

We live in the darkness of shitty apartments
We get depressed, obsess and second guess
We tend to lose faith every twenty-two days
But we still create, grow, build and break bones

And this is dedicated to the weird kids that hear this
Stay fearless — look past the appearance
I wrote the book on naked massage
And made a collage with papers from my neighbor's garage
And everyone insists they spit doper than you
Look, I play strip poker at the Smithsonian, too
And I'm over it, dude — all that games that I played
Are breaking up like papier-mâché and fading away
They can't swallow an ounce of my liquid
Sat down to vibe with it and drowned in five minutes
At age six, I was a comfortable kid
... had a whole lot of Legos and I loved where I lived
But then something just flipped up inside of my head
Now I kinda regret most of the life that I led, shucks
... still moving, though — sleeping at the studio
Doing shows, hop offstage and watch the rumors grow

(And that's just how we do it, bro)

So whatchu bitch about?
Whatchu think you can't live without?
What's the image that you kick around, sitting down?
Whatchu love to hate?
What's your last bad drunk mistake?
And tell me when we're gonna raise the fucking stakes?
Whatchu wanna be?
What's your best guess prophecy?
What's your plan, man? Talk to me, honestly
Whatchu need from me?
What's your comfort zone frequency?
What's it take to make the people free, equally?
And whatchu doing NOW, to help a fellow human out?
I used to have to prove it, now there's room for doubt
So what do I believe in?
Everybody suffers for a reason
And love is the blood that gives it meaning

We live in the darkness of shitty apartments
We get depressed, obsess and second guess
We tend to lose faith every twenty-two days
But we still create, grow, build and break cages
