  • I feel, I feel you breaking under
    My skin, I'll be your vacant lover
    Diving too deep to tell ourselves apart
    Hand on my heart

    California living, business in L.A.
    This DBX is what I'm whipping, certain man are tripping
    All this crypto in the world, you could get rich in a day
    So, I don't get why you're invested in the women I date
    I been going through a phase, I ain't been feeling myself
    To keep it G with myself, think I'm in need of some help
    At Merky Fest I broke down because a camera flashed
    Janelle was in the back, I had a panic attack, I said I needed a trip
    You wanna scheme where I live?
    We send bullets through your windows while you sleep with your kids
    You live and you learn, I get 'em hit on return
    And then it's water underneath another bridge that I burned
    Is there happiness in a girl?
    Am I in love or do I love having someone to help with distracting me from myself?
    Am I in it for the win?
    If God is a woman, then I'm pissed 'cause ladies never forgive me for my sins
    It's, it's the Black Bandana Gang, 16 Taliban
    Trips to Calabasas, only right I'm with a Cali' man
    Tried to stop him trappin', found a way to send the Cali' back
    Black Cadillac with a baddie for my cataracts
    Thicker than a Snicker, Rambo cut him like a battle axe
    Waterproof jacket 'cause she got a back and a rack
    Stop me if I'm lyin', I ain't perfect
    But I promise that I'm trying, It's S

    I feel, I feel you breaking under
    My skin, I'll be your vacant lover
    Diving too deep to tell ourselves apart
    Hand on my heart

    Streatham Vale, surviving
    Came to see my mum, this DBS is what she's driving
    My bills multiplying, but my money is dividing
    Who's gonna provide for the people that's providin'?
    Bae's a work of art, she like my kuds and I ain't violent
    I'm good to fly private
    I don't really like shining, my accountant like-minded
    Mummy's working in a hospital, that shit is a trip
    Cah when she parks, it's like a baller's there to visit her kid
    It's all lonely, bro, Sony don't believe in the real
    They can't afford to buy the fucking shoes they need me to fill
    I think it's pretty ironic, if I'm keeping it real
    Since 93% is what I keep on a deal
    I got Jack, I don't need me a Jill
    I'm on the steepest of hills
    It's six figures for the cheapest of thrills
    I'm so musical, I'm working while I sleep with the steel
    It's in the key of D-major when she screaming her trills
    And if I'm keeping it trill
    It ain't from David Joseph, I ain't readin' the deal
    I donate to charities, but I ain't tweeting that still
    And even when my people hate me, gotta speak for 'em still
    I gotta listen to my sisters, cah their feelings are real
    And when the scars this deep, this shit ain't easy to heal
    There's eight of us at Novikov and we're all eatin' a meal
    But the waiter knows to find me when he's leavin' the bill
    I don't beg it with street rappers, if I'm keepin' it real
    You pop molly, I got jolly if I need me a drill
    I used to walk for no reason, cah I needed it still
    Fuck trappin', I was scammin', I was stealin' a steel
    I robbed man, I didn't really like the feeling, but still
    I been robbed, you wanna know which of the two I prefer?
    My mummy couldn't understand that I would do it for her
    If war should occur, I'll put this through you if I have to
    But it's more to deter
    Listen, you ain't got the stomach or the heart for this
    Know your own worth, they're gonna label you a narcissist
    Same brush they use to stroke you ego when you're part of this
    Will be the one they use to sweep your name under the carpet with
    I'll show you what heartless is, I'm grinding for electrics
    Nourishment for dinner, I was starving for my entrance
    All we needed was two zeds and a dead strip
    To bring it back to life like Jon Snow and the Red Witch
    Table full of bosses, designating profits
    How we on the same team and you're celebratin' my losses?
    If he's a man sending hate through a fake page
    Chances are I ran through his bitch just like I'm A-Train
    Fuck a day-date, Daytona with a plain face
    Panda plain jane just matchin', he got great taste
    Try a ting and get stabbed in that same place
    You're going St. George's, they ain't treatin' you at mayday
    Mayday, mayday, somebody call for help
    Free all of my niggas in jail
    I heard you're on bro, but I doubt it
    That's stones in glass houses
    This the shit that couldn't make it to my album
    Mercury

    I feel, I feel you breaking under
    My skin, I'll be your vacant lover
    Diving too deep to tell ourselves apart
    Hand on my heart

    I lie with her like perjury
    And I cry tears of burgundy
    Sirens sing so perfectly
    But I'm poison like mercury
    I lie with her like perjury
    And I cry tears of burgundy
    Sirens sing so perfectly
    But I'm poison like mercury Writer/s: David Omoregie, Kamal Prescod, Kyle Evans
