  • Hey!
    Leave me alone

    Painic-stricken, handle business, not a joke, yeah
    Manners missing, travel different, no control, yeah
    Time to listen, time to zip it, keep it closed
    My description, highly gifted, take some notes, yeah
    Lack of interest, why'd you visit? Hit the road, yeah
    I'm kinda twisted, so keep your distance, be a ghost
    Yeah, see I'm inventive, but quite the menace, you ain't know?
    Well then I'm offended, let's jog your memories, here we go, yeah
    I went from nobody to kinda famous
    Hide my plaques inside the closet, I just can't explain it
    My wife, she tells me that she's proud and thinks that I should hang 'em
    But I just leave 'em on the ground right next to my self-hatred
    Yeah, yeah, mental health, where's my mental health?
    Diagnosed with OCD, what does that mean? Well, gather 'round
    That means I obsessively obsess on things I think about
    That means I might take a normal thought and think it's so profound (leave me alone)
    Ruminating, fill balloons up full of doubt
    Do the same things, if I don't, I'm overwhelmed
    Thoughts are pacing, they go 'round and 'round and 'round
    It's so draining, let's move onto something else, fine
    I'm in the game, but they don't even know it
    Like I'm undercover and don't want to blow it
    I come out of nowhere, they don't even notice
    The flow is so cold, you would think it was snowing
    I'm under the weather, but wind isn't blowing
    I got an umbrella for difficult moments
    You got to admit it, I'm very devoted
    I'm out in the rain, but it don't always open, so I

    Hold up my balloons and cover up my face
    I can feel them weighing on me every day
    I should let 'em go and watch 'em float away
    But I'm scared if I do, then I'll be more afraid
    Tell them how I feel, but they don't want to change
    Tell them how I feel, but they remain the same
    Loosen up my grip, they say that's not okay
    Quiet, quiet, quiet, quiet, quiet, ay, leave me alone!

    Ay, yeah
    Quiet, quiet, quiet, quiet, quiet, ay (yeah), leave me alone!
    Woo, yeah
    Quiet, quiet, quiet, quiet, quiet, ay (yeah), leave me alone!

    I hate when they debate if we're underrated
    We're so overlooked that they're looking over our numbers, Nathan (leave me alone)
    We don't do enough interviews or go out in public lately
    We don't post enough on our socials
    To keep the buzz from fading (leave me alone)
    Let it fade, yeah, let it fade
    Once it's decimated, then you drop a song out of nowhere
    And all the fans embrace it (leave me alone)
    Then the buzz will surface again, it's part of my operation
    I don't need advice from my doubts right now end of conversation (leave me alone)
    Shut your mouth, yeah, shut your mouth
    Better tone it down, close it now
    If you make a sound, I'ma change your dial (leave me alone)
    Funny how they be acting loud, comin' on it now
    It's floating 'round
    Man, the kid is wild, pretty wild, true (leave me alone)
    I'm kinda phony but don't really show it
    I keep it together, but have a disorder
    I go to my room and I sit in my corner
    And talk to myself in a language that's foreign (leave me alone)
    I think of a rhyme and I have to record it
    But know if I don't, I'll wake up in the morning
    And question my life again, always avoiding
    I hate to be different, but hate to be normal, so I (leave me alone)

    Hold up my balloons and cover up my face
    I can feel them weighing on me every day
    I should let 'em go and watch 'em float away
    But I'm scared if I do, then I'll be more afraid
    Tell them how I feel, but they don't want to change
    Tell them how I feel, but they remain the same
    Loosen up my grip, they say that's not okay
    Quiet, quiet, quiet, quiet, quiet, ay, leave me alone!

    Ay, yeah
    Quiet, quiet, quiet, quiet, quiet, ay (yeah), leave me alone!
    Woo, yeah
    Quiet, quiet, quiet, quiet, quiet, ay (yeah), leave me alone!

    Remember back in "NO NAME," I said fame called?
    Told you I hung up, it kinda felt wrong (leave me alone)
    Finally called him back, we didn't talk long
    He asked me how I'd been, I sent him this song (leave me alone)
    Yeah, think he took offense, he kinda seemed off
    I texted him that night to ask what he thought (leave me alone)
    It took a couple days to get a response
    But once I finally did, he said this song sucks (leave me alone)
    Here are the symptoms, couldn't miss 'em, wrestle with 'em
    Then I penny flip 'em, bounce 'em back up nowhere, you should get some
    Who you dissin'? Mood is switchin', don't come in the kitchen
    You should listen, cookin' records for my hands are blistering
    So persistent, don't forget this, hold the tension, soul is bending
    No pretending, open ended, low percentage, so demented
    Whole consensus, flow tremendous, no apprentice, no incentive
    Show intensive, so possessive, tone aggressive, watch your step when I

    Hold up my balloons and cover up my face (up my face)
    I can feel them weighing on me every day (yeah, every day)
    I should let 'em go and watch them float away (yeah, float away)
    But I'm scared if I do then I'll be more afraid
    Leave me alone (yeah), leave me alone (yeah, yeah, yeah)
    Leave me alone, leave me alone (yeah, yeah, yeah)
    Leave me alone, leave me alone (yeah, leave me alone)
    Leave me alone, leave me alone, ay, leave me alone!

    Ay, yeah
    Quiet, quiet, quiet, quiet, quiet, ay (yeah), leave me alone!
    Woo, yeah
    Quiet, quiet, quiet, quiet, quiet, ay (yeah), leave me alone!
    Ay, yeah
    Quiet, quiet, quiet, quiet, quiet, ay (yeah), leave me alone!
    Woo, yeah
    Quiet, quiet, quiet, quiet, quiet, ay (leave me alone) Writer/s: Cole Edward Walowac, Nathan John Feuerstein, Thomas Profitt
