Unwilling

I ain't willing to abide

By far too many laws

Got too much pride

To default to social norms

Half my friends think they've tried

But see me as a lost cause

They mad cuz I'm getting high

And they on all fours

 

The music pumps and pumps

I can feel it in my veins

Same tunes by their response

It just ain't the same

Hitting just another bump

They think I hydroplane

Still glad I decided to come

Even when it starts to rain

 

It's hard to  explain

Like the bell in Polar Express

Just ain't the same

And it ain't time for a rest

They want it plain

I see what it is; a mess

Slippin into insane

Stupid way to avoid a mess

 

Input-Output

No jeers, No fears, No tears

Input-Output

A robot will do what you do in 20 years

Input-Output

Twitter and Facebook makes me feel vindicated

Input-Output

For all the thoughts I confidently regurgitated

Input-Output

Can't get through turbulence on auto-pilot

Input-Output

Now I am the one that's prying

 

Listen closely

I got something to say

Real talk ain't only

For people wanting to get laid

Y'all don't know me

Cuz you only out there to get paid

Please stop showing me

The giant mess y'all made

 

Douche-turd, douche-turd

Y'all so absurd

Mocking me and my peeps

For being on the third

 

E-40 we all got choices

That I certainly know

Don't lose you voices

Make your options grow

Trophy only hoisted

When the towel was not thrown

I ain't lost it

Just finding a different way to go

The bottle

Verse 1:

Aching in a way that you can’t conceive

Dumb and dumbfounded cuz you don’t perceive

Know not yourself cuz you don’t believe

Assuming something always up our sleeve

 

Vision getting blurry as your face turns red

Always fillin’ up with the words unsaid

Waitin and waitin’ for some go-ahead

Simple sugars take the place of bread

 

Go the other way, it’s a flatter path

Don’t wanna cry, I’d rather laugh

I love yo’ avatar, it’s quite a blast

Like what I got, no need for the stash

 

Chorus:

In 18 months time, you’ll be full throttle

But I know how to not make it my problem

So be cool, and just throw it in the bottle

Throw it in the bottle

 

Head in the clouds, that’s my motto

No bigger eye sore than a pothole

No need to see that, throw it in the bottle

Throw it in the bottle

 

Verse 2:

The bottle knows all, the bottle is wise

As Kendrick put it, bitch don’t steal my vibe

To those who don’t know it’s hard to describe

I’m cool, I’m real, cracka I’m alive

 

Look at me, I got plenty o’ dough

And I know all the hip places to go

Corn hole, yo’ every single throw

Just spent my $100 at Things that Glow

 

Damn right I won it, double zero not my bet

Rollin the dice, aint’ done me wrong yet

I’m flying high, every evening spent

Call me Scotty P., no ragrets

 

Chorus

 

Verse 3:

I see you over there, you’re a mystery

I love to be amused by what I see

Dice now rollin’ almost constantly

Where this all goes, aint up to me

 

Two and two make four, or maybe make nine

The bottle reassure, it’ll all be fine

Can’t connect the dots, no straight line

Runnin’ out of space, and runnin’ out of time

 

Don’t know the source of my latest endeavor

Man made top quality don’t last forever

Hope I have a rock, never to sever

Embarrassed to show what’s under the sweater

 

Chorus

 

Like Arabian nights, there’s a genie inside

But this one aint giving you a prize

This one know where your thought collide

This one know where your soul reside

 

Even the best of rides someday is through

Gotta go back and decide, what to do

Like the matrix, those pills red and blue

Like a child’s game, you got a latter or a chute

 

Choose latter, tough things you got to do

It’s out with the old, all that through

House destroyed, volcanic ash been spewed

18 months now till you not confused

 

The bottle give, and the bottle take

Real truth, the bottle can’t fake

The bottle have a purpose, it have a sake

Mind the limits on the bottle’s intake
