  • When the lights hurt my brain
    Sometimes I pray for a blackout
    When the candles are placed
    Nothing more I crave than a blackout
    Let there be no light
    Let there be no light, ’til the sunrise
    Let there be no light
    Only then will I open my eyes
    Let there be no light

    Is there a light of mine
    It’s like my peace of mind
    Even when I’m in the dark
    Still gotta let me shine
    Let me fly, my mind’s got wings on it
    Gotta play that ground, got pink on it
    My little bro’s got a sixth on it
    I splash cash and I drink solid
    I don’t wanna act bad, don’t wanna see a pap’ flash
    I just wanna black out without backlash
    Don’t wanna hear snap snap snap, that sh*t gets annoying
    Wanna be alive, not just employed
    There, following my heart
    Even the light’s got faith in the dark, amen

    When the lights hurt my brain
    Sometimes I pray for a blackout
    When the candles are placed
    Nothing more I crave than a blackout
    Let there be no light
    Let there be no light, ’til the sunrise
    Let there be no light
    Only then will I open my eyes
    Let there be no light

    Is it that way you move your hips, or that piercing on your lips
    Or that there Serrano flowing, like it’s serving through a drip
    I am no longer a person, I’m a star up in the b*tch
    So I talk with body language, my vocabulary is sh*t
    Got a feeling that you’re feeling how I’m feeling
    Would waking up with me tomorrow morning make your evening
    If so, let’s find a corner in the place that I can breathe in
    My ego’s claustrophobic, you should know we’ve had a threesome
    Leave it

    When the lights hurt my brain
    Sometimes I pray for a blackout
    When the candles are placed
    Nothing more I crave than a blackout
    Let there be no light
    Let there be no light, ’til the sunrise
    Let there be no light
    Only then will I open my eyes
    Let there be no light

    Take away my light
    Take away my shine
    Take away my eyesight
    Give me a beat and let me rhyme

    When the lights hurt my brain
    Sometimes I pray for a blackout
    When the candles are placed
    Nothing more I crave than a blackout
