Album: Ye (2018)
Charted: 28
  • I know, I know, I know, I know, know
    I, I know it, I know it (I know, I know, I know, I know, know)

    The most beautiful thoughts are always besides the darkest
    Today I seriously thought about killing you
    I contemplated, premeditated murder
    And I think about killing myself
    And I love myself way more than I love you, so
    Today I thought about killing you, premeditated murder
    You'd only care enough to kill somebody you love
    The most beautiful thoughts are always beside the darkest
    (Mhm—mhm—mhm—mhm—mhmm)
    Just say it out loud to see how it feels
    People say, "Don't say this, don't say that"
    Just say out loud, just to see how it feels
    Weigh all the options, nothing's off the table
    Today I thought about killing you, premeditated murder
    I think about killing myself, and I, I love myself way more than I love you
    The most beautiful thoughts are always beside the darkest
    (Mhm—mhm—mhm—mhm—mhm—mhm—mhm—mhm—mhmm)
    I think this is the part where I'm supposed to say something good
    To compensate it so it doesn't come off bad
    But sometimes I think really bad things
    Really, really, really bad things
    And I love myself way more than I love you
    See, if I was trying to relate it to more people
    I'd probably say I'm struggling with loving myself
    Because that seems like a common theme
    But that's not the case here
    I love myself way more than I love you
    And I think about killing myself
    So, best believe, I thought about killing you today
    Premeditated murder

    I called up my loved ones, I called up my cousins
    I called up the Muslims, said I'm 'bout to go dumb
    Get so bright it's no sun, get so loud I hear none
    Screamed so loud got no lungs, hurt so bad, I go numb
    Time to bring in the drums, that prrt-pum-pum-pum
    Set the Newtone on 'em, set the nuke off on 'em
    I need coke with no rum, I taste coke on her tongue
    I don't joke with no one, they'll say, "He died so young"
    I done had a bad case of too many bad days
    Got too many bad traits
    Used the floor for ashtrays
    I don't do shit halfway, I'ma clear the cache
    I'ma make my name last, put that on my last name
    It's a different type of rules that we obey
    Ye, Ye, Ye season, nigga, we obey
    We was all born to die, nigga DOA
    Niggas say they hero, mm, I don't see no cape
    Mm, I don't see no, mm, yeah, I don't see no, mm, mm
    If I wasn't signed to so hard, wouldn't be no shade
    Buckwheat ass nigga, it's 'gon be otay
    Young nigga shit, nigga, we don't age
    I thought I was past my Deebo ways
    Even when I went broke, I ain't break
    How you gon' hate? Nigga, we go way back
    To when I had the braids and you had the wave cap
    Drop a pin for the fade and I'm on my way ASAP
    Don't get socked in the mouth, you know homie don't play that
    Pay the fire marshal bill 'cause this shit done got way packed
    They wanna see me go ape (ape, ape)
    All you gotta do is speak on Ye
    All you gotta do is speak on Ye
    Don't get your tooth chipped like Frito-Lay Writer/s: Benjamin Levin, Cydel Young, Dexter Mills, Francis Starlite, Kanye West, Kenneth Preshon, Malik Jones, Mike Dean, Terrence Boykin, Joseph Olaitan Adenuga, Richard Kylea Cowie
