    Take care in your dreaming

    Twenty-eleven my name came alive
    At the same time I planned my suicide
    Literally I will live lonely inside on the physical side
    All my miracles died
    Twenty-twelve guess that plan ain't go well
    Out my shell still I'm living in hell
    Yet it was written from god it was gifted
    To give you a story that ain't hard to tell
    Twenty-thirteen, far from a pre-teen
    But it seem that a nigga chased my dream
    Making anything that the world has not seen nor heard
    Moving words like verbs, curved
    Twenty-fourteen, when I turned nineteen
    Singing R.I.P. to my big bro Tree and my girl TT
    When she got gunned down
    Now I'm back on road
    'Cause I couldn't come round to the funeral
    Let a whole year pass
    Made an EP and my fans got mad
    A lot issues that a young man had
    Just two years shy of a high school grad
    Twenty-sixteen when the boy got mean
    ULT embedded in my genes
    Around the same time I met X and ski
    If the Klan ain't hit then we just might be
    The ones that have it all in our reach
    Twenty-seventeen I had no place to sleep
    Twenty-eighteen taboo one three was the best shit people ever heard from me
    When you get pure pain I'mma just make heat
    Twenty-nineteen been good and bleak
    Cut off the locks
    New look, same me
    Used to chase my dreams
    Now the dream chase me

    Take care in your dreaming and love when you can (chase my dreams)
    You'll need it now
    You'll need it now

    Take care in your dreaming and love when you can (chase my dreams)
    You'll need it now (yeah)
    You'll need it now

    Yeah
    South side of Africa
    You ain't really heard of her
    Mama was a daughter of a chief
    Make sense since
    Royalty so skin deep
    Melanin carried through heaps
    Papa was a soldier
    Built our whole life off his shoulders
    Both were my pillars, yeah, I told yah
    Both were a product of about ten kids
    About ten needs
    About ten feeds
    Walking to school it was about ten K's
    Knees getting faded
    Hope getting faded
    Aches
    No lights flashing and flicker, it was a dream
    Providing for they children
    Just to hope our souls beam with prosperity
    My parents they took big care of me
    Made sure opinions were heard
    'Cause it was scary
    Middle kid tings
    Always lurking in the back
    When I felt I wasn't heard
    Decided to stay back

    Take care in your dreaming and love when you can (take care)
    You'll need it now (nigga it was a dream)
    You'll need it now (anything that world has not seen)

    Take care in your dreaming and love when you can (it was a dream, yeah)
    You'll need it now (when I turned nineteen, chase my dream)
    You'll need it now
    Take care

    Love don't leave
    Love can't breathe
    Love cannot breathe
    Breathe

    Take care in your dreaming and love when you can
    You'll need it now
    You'll need it now (love can't breathe) Writer/s: Adrian Thaws, Andrew Szekeres, Anthony Di Blasi, Denzel Curry, Robert Chater, Sampa Tembo
