Track Name: NOBODY CARES
NOBODY CARES UNLESS YOU'RE PRETTY OR YOU'RE DYING
AND I DIED LIKE THREE ALBUMS BACK SO I DUNNO WHY I'M TRYING
I STARTED RHYMING BACK WHEN I WAS 16
AND MY PLAN IS TO KEEP RHYMING DESPITE 2016
SO I CAME TO SPIT THESE TRUTHS HERE ON TOP OF THESE BEATS
MADE EM ALL IN MID-DECEMBER IN A COUPLE OF WEEKS
IT WASN'T NOTHIN BUT SOME BLOOD, SWEAT, TEARS & LOSIN SOME SLEEP
TIL IT'S [MISSION COMPLETE] CELEBRATIONS
(LISTEN TO ME)
I'M SERVIN UP LUNCH YALL, MYSTERY BEATS
I GOT A SIDE OF RAW VOCAL FILES MIXED WITH SOME GREENS
MISERY LOVES COMPANY SO SHE'S CHILLIN WITH ME
WE'RE PLAYIN MINECRAFT TOGETHER AND WE'RE HITTIN THE TREES
BUT I AIN'T HERE TO BUILD A CABIN (NAW)
I'M HERE TO KILL THESE RAPS WITH FUNNY JOKES AND HOPE YOU LAUGH ALONG
HERE TO SPILL MY SADNESS BUT THEN ACT LIKE I AIN'T SAD AT ALL
HERE TO FILL MY CATALOG WITH CANNABIS AND ADDERALL BUT

NOBODY CARES UNLESS YOU'RE PRETTY OR YOU'RE DYING
BUT WE'RE ALL DYING AND NOBODY CARES
MAYBE WE'RE ALL TOO UGLY
CAUSE MY PEOPLE CRYING OUT BUT THERE AIN'T NOBODY THERE

LATELY I FEEL LIKE NOTHING RELATES TO ME BUT THIS JPEG KERMIT MEME THAT SAYS "GOD HAS FORSAKEN ME"
RUN AND TELL THAT
NOTHING HELPS TO QUELL THAT OVERWHELMING FEELING WE'RE HELD BACK
SO I JUST TOLD HER "BABY PULL ME CLOSER,
I'M NOT GAY I'M JUST AS CLOSE AS IT GETS WITHOUT GOING OVER"
AND WE LAUGHED
. . . AND WE LAUGHED
THEN WE TOOK A STEP BACK
I'M SUCH A BUMMER, DID NOTHIN ALL SUMMER
I WAS WATCHING BOB ROSS AND I BOUGHT ALL THE WRONG COLORS (OOPS)
THIS GOES OUT TO OUR SISTERS AND LOST BROTHERS
IT'S ALL LOVE, OR WHATEVER YOU WANNA CALL IT
WITHOUT ANY HESITATION I'M READY TO SAY COMPLACENCY WILL LEAD TO DEVASTATION
I'VE SPENT TOO MANY DAYS PATIENTLY WAITING IN RESIGNATION THINKING "I WANNA DIE"
AS IF THE GRASS IS GREENER ON THE UNDERSIDE
Track Name: BLUE // DOWN
NOTHIN RHYMES WITH ORANGES
I WANNA FLY LIKE MICHAEL JORDAN DID
GET PULLED DOWN THAT HOLE AGAIN
IT'S SPACE JAM 4
WE'RE AT WAR WITH THEM MONSTAR CLONES AGAIN
ROCK HARD SPOKENS
(I'VE RETURNED!!!)
TO DROP QUOTES & KNOCK THEM DOORS WIDE OPEN
RUN THROUGH EM LIKE R. KELLY, EAGLES FLYIN TO THE OCEAN
POSTED UP LEANING WITH THE LEAF IN ME DRINKING STRAIGHT WHISKEY
TOUCH FUZZY, GET DIZZY
WHAT'S MONEY? TREE FIDDY?
A HUNDRED STREAK OF VICTORIES
THAT'S ANOTHER ONE
YOU WANNA BE THE MAN TO BEAT?
YOU GOTTA BEAT ME FIRST, STUPID
THAT MAN IS ME
YOU CAN CALL ME JOEY Z OR YOU CAN CALL ME YOUR MAJESTY
CALL IT A HAPPENING
IT'S ALL IN THE FAMILY
I GOT ALL OF MY TALENTS IN LUMP EXCHANGE FOR MY SANITY
I AIN'T LEFT BUT I MIGHT LEAVE IN A DAB OR THREE (NOPE)
I'M STAYIN HOME TO DO THAT CLASSIC "JACK N SLEEP"
AND I MIGHT HAVE A DRINK

BEING SAD IS COOL NOW
GOT ME FEELING LIKE I'M THE COOLEST DUDE IN THE ROOM NOW
BLUE // DOWN

MY MAMA STILL BELIEVES THAT I'VE BEEN MAKIN WISE CHOISES
OOPS
I'M SORRY MAMA
MY FRAME OF MIND IS BROKEN AND MY LIFE IS POINTLESS
ANOTHER YOUNG DUMB 20-SOMETHING, I'M VOICELESS
I WALK AROUND STRUTTIN
I SAY A LOT OF STUFF CAUSE ALL MY SONGS ABOUT NOTHIN
I'M FUNNY BUT I'M UGLY
AN ALL AROUND DUMMY
I'M ALL ABOUT THE MUSIC BUT I'LL SETTLE ON GHOSTWRITING FOR YOUR MONEY
I'M HIDING FROM THE PUBLIC
FIND ME IN THE DUNGEON STRETCHING DRUM BREAKS
TRYNA MAKE SOMETHIN
MINUS THE FAKE FRONTIN
PLUS EMOTIONAL TRANSPARENCY
SMOKE TOO MUCH POT AND JUST STUMBLE THROUGH LIFE LAZILY

[HOOK]

MY DADDY'S STILL A DAMN LIAR
AND I'M STILL NOT OVER THAT
TURN A BRIGHT DAY RIGHT QUICK INTO A GOTDAMN OVERCAST
OLD MAD SOCIOPATH
STOLEN THINGS HE SOLD FOR CRACK
EVERY BROKEN PROMISE IN THE BOTTOM OF THE MOLTEN TRASH
BUT THAT'S A SAD SONG FOR ANOTHER DAY
I USED TO WANNA RUN AWAY TO SEE WHO WOULD CARE
NOW I WANNA RUN AWAY AND DISAPPEAR FOR YEARS
THEN RESURFACE IN A DECADE, NEW FACE & A BEARD
YEA!!!
THE NEW SATAN IS HERE
& HE GOT BARS SO FLAMIN DUDE'S SHAKIN IN FEAR
THE SMOOTH FLOWS SLITHER OVER BEATS
THE SNAKE OF THE YEAR!!!
. . . IT'S CAUSE SATAN WAS A SERPENT
GOD NEVER DID A THING THAT MADE HIM WORTH ATTENDING SERVICE
JUST TO THANK HIM FOR HIS SERVICE
AS IF EVERYTHING AIN'T REALLY WRONG
AND MAYBE IT'S A SILLY THOUGHT
BUT IF GOD HATES SHOWING UP AS MUCH AS ME THEN HE PROBABLY NEEDS TO QUIT HIS JOB
Track Name: GOLDUST
I WANNA TELL YOU THAT I LOVE YOU
AND ALL THE WAYS THAT YOU REMIND ME OF ALL MY FAVORITE COLORS
LOVE SO UNPREDICTABLE LIKE RAINY SUMMERS
MY LOVE IS SO CONDITIONAL, BUT BABY I JUST. . .
LET ME TELL YOU SOMETHIN, HOLD UP
GIVE ME A SECOND TO CATCH MY BREATH, I'M GETTIN CHOKED UP
LET ME SMOKE SOMETHING
AND LET ME GO TO UHHH...
I'M SO UNFOCUSED, I'M HOPELESS
JUST LET ME SHOW YOU SOME

BREATHE DEEP LIKE GOLDUST
TIL BOTH LUNGS ARE FILLED WITH THAT O STUFF
I'M SO DUMB
A YOUNGIN PLAYIN AROUND WITH BROKE THUMBS
HOLD UP TO JUMP, BUT HOLD DOWN TO GO NUMB
HOLD RIGHT TO RUN
BUT HOLD LEFT TO WIN
PRESS START TO START
A, A, LET'S BEGIN
UM
IF YOU PLAY, PLAY TO WIN
IF YOU AIN'T, STAY AWAY
'CAUSE THIS GAME AIN'T PRETEND
BUT NO MISTAKE, THIS WHOLE GAME'S MADE FROM SINS
IT'S HEARTBREAKS & HEADACHES
HARD DAYS & ENDS
JUST PARLAY YOUR FRIENDSHIPS
AND HOPE THAT IT'S WORTH IT
YOU KNOW YOU DESERVE IT
I'LL NEVER BE PERFECT
AND THAT'S WHY I'M WORTHLESS
I SWEAR I REMEMBER SIMILAR PURPOSES
WHEN YOUR EYES LOCKED ONTO MINE AND WE COMBINED
TO TURN TO CYAN
BUT THAT AIN'T ONE OF MY COLORS, SO. . .
MAYBE WE WEREN'T MEANT FOR EACHOTHER
MAYBE I'M TRIPPIN
BUT CLEARLY YOU FELT DIFFERENT
YOU REGRET IT: THAT'S BITTERSWEET, AND I HATE TO ADMIT
I DON'T WISH YOU ANY LESS THAN THE VERY BEST OF CONDITIONS
I JUST WISHED I WAS IN EM
BUT CLEARLY THAT WAS AN ISSUE
I WANNA TELL YOU SOMETHIN, HANG ON
GIVE ME A SECOND TO CATCH MY BREATH, I THINK MY BRAIN'S GONE
AND NOW MY VOICE IS GONE
CHOSE ALL MY CHOICES WRONG
I KNOW THAT TALKIN'S NOT WORTH IT, SO I JUST WRONG A SONG
Track Name: DITHER
SUICIDAL, INDECISIVE
IT'S "DO OR DIE", BUT "DO" IS "DIE" AND "DIE" IS "DIE QUICKER"
LOOSENED TIES HOLD MY HEART TO MY RIGHT WRIST
I'LL LOSE AN EYE TRYNA LOOK BACK AT THEM TIMES WHEN I'D MIGHT HAVE DONE IT DIFFERENT IF I HAD THE CHANCE TO TRY AGAIN
USELESS BLIGHT TRYNA SEE HOW LOW THE LIGHTS GET
A RUSE, A LIFE, AND THE THIN LINE THAT DIVIDES THEM
I WALK IT LOOKING DOWN AT THE CARNAGE LIKE "WHO COULD LIKE THIS?"
BUT WHO AM I TO TRY TO DICTATE WHAT THE PRICE IS?
WITH TOO MUCH PRIDE TO MOVE IN SILENCE
[YOU SHOULD TRY IT]
STUPID LIAR, FUNERAL PYRE IN HIS EYES BEHIND IS EYELIDS
CLOSED TIGHT, HOPE, FIGHT
NO LIFE, LIFELESS
DON'T TRY
WHY QUIT?
BOLD TEXT: NO REST
ALL NIGHTS THRICE LIVED
THAT'S A TRILOGY
THAT'S ALL MY LIFE IS
REPETITIONS OF REPETITIONS, LESSONS SIT INSIDE OF THEM
FIND THEM
FINE THEN
DIE
[DEAD]

MISERY AT BEST
HIT A LIMIT THEN FORGET IT CAUSE IT DIDN'T MEAN THE END
THIS IS DITHER IN THE FLESH
I'M A SINNER SLOWLY SWIRLING IN THE SCHISM IN-BETWEEN THE LOWLY CHEATERS AND THE DEAD
SMOKING WEED TO BE A "PEOPLE" WHEN I NEED TO BE A "THEM"
HOPE FOR FREEDOM BUT THESE PEOPLE KEEP ME BLEEDING IN THE HEAD
NEVER SLEEP
HEADLESS SHEEP AND A DEMON IN THE BED
WHAT'S THE MEANING IN THE END?
WHAT'S A BEAT WHEN YOU'RE DEPRESSED?

IS IT EVEN WORTH A SHOT?
iS IT A CREATURE OR A FRIEND?
IS IT DISEASED OR FERTILE SOIL FOR THOSE SEEDS OF DISCONTENT?
IS IT ME IN THAT MIRROR? OR DISTORTED VISIONS OF DEVILS?
DO YOU SEE YOUR OWN REMEDY OR WAIT FOR A LETTER?
WE CAN SAY WE SEDATED
WHAT WE REALLY MEAN IS WE SETTLED FOR LESS THAN THE HELP WE NEED
IS IT REALLY HELP? OR A LEVER?
YOU TURN IT OFF TO SEE IF THINGS SEEM ANY BETTER
NOW YOU'RE NUMB ENOUGH TO SLEEP BUT TOO AWAKE TO REAP THOSE BENEFITS
ENDLESSNESS
NAMELESS, BUT YOU KNOW IT BY DESCRIPTION IF YOU'VE FELT IT
HELLISH
INFINITE
SELFISH
MAKE YOU PUNCH A WALL TIL YOUR HAND BLEEDS
YOU'RE THRASHIN IN THE BACKSEAT
BUT YOU CAN'T DO A DAMN THING
MAYBE YALL CAN CATCH ME ON THE POSTHUMOUS LIST OF ALBUMS THAT WERE NEVER FINISHED BUT WERE POPULAR
LIKE "LISTEN TO THOSE LAST WORDS HE CHOSE TO PASS ONTO US BEFORE HE CHANGED HIS MIND AND CAME BACK WITH A DIFFERENT MONIKER"
