  • Duh-duh-duh, duh, duh, duh
    As he falls back deeper, into a state
    The return (Dot Da Genius, baby, Daytrip took it to ten, hey)

    That's my mind, it's speedin' by, I won't know
    Askin' God to help or are you hearin' me?
    Girl is tellin' me she don't know what she want
    Lotta demons creepin' up, they livin' underneath
    Gotta take a minute, y'all travel far
    Feelin' somethin', though I can't ignore my instincts
    Back, just where it all started
    It's the same old game and song, it's the shit I need

    Tryna fight it on the right track
    Oh, wanna be just for the free, I
    Hm, talk to him, he don't speak back
    Hm, can't lose him in the dirt, I
    Lord seein' me swirl
    Do this to my loved ones, I got some nerve
    Don't think I'm not sorry

    Hm, hear me now, hey
    This time I'm ready for it
    Can't stop this war in me
    Can't stop this war in me, in me, in me
    Hm, hear me now, hey
    This time I'm ready for it
    Despite this war in me
    Despite this war in me, in me, in me

    Hm, I been here before
    Hm, hm, I been here before, hm
    Can't stop this war in me
    Can't stop this war in me, in me, in me
    As the story goes, hey, hey
    As the story goes, hm
    Despite this war in me
    Despite this war in me, in me, in me

    (Yeah) Standin' on the cliff right off Mulholland Drive
    (Yeah) Back up on my lateness, this a remedy
    (Oh) Somethin' 'bout the night that keep me safe and warm
    Just me, the universe and everything I think
    Lotta shit that's weighing on me, it's a storm
    Never thought I would be back here bleeding
    I'm not just some sad dude
    You could see my life, how I grew, I want serenity

    Tryna fight it on the right track
    Oh, wanna be just for the free, I
    Talk to him, he don't speak back
    Hm, can't lose him in the dirt, I
    See, it seems I'll never learn
    I won't stop 'til I crash and burn
    Tell my mom, "I'm sorry"

    Hm, hear me now, hey
    This time I'm ready for it
    Can't stop this war in me
    Can't stop this war in me, in me, in me
    Hm, hear me now, hey
    This time I'm ready for it
    Despite this war in me
    Despite this war in me, in me, in me

    I been here before, hey, hey
    I been here before, hm
    Can't stop this war in me
    Can't stop this war in me, in me, in me
    And the story goes, hey, hey
    As the story goes, hm
    Despite this war in me
    Despite this war in me, in me, in me
