Relentless

lilsteep12 2003 (lilongwe)



Right after every beat
I feel less connected
Less committed
I'm more detached
Stressed then eased up
And since we don't click
I'd rather let you go
Than be in my thoughts
Thinking about something that won't work
I lose to gain
Love, hate
I can't blame you
That inner peace
Self possessed
A better place, my space
Meditated
I cruise, my fate isn't set
I can't control it
A gamble
I let it play out
It's less painful that way
I bet you wouldn't get it
Can't say my core ain't shaken
It's always give and take
My mental chippers away
And I stay illogical
You're just afraid of looking at the world like I do
I'm still growing
Can't stop now
I'm not senile
I'm just over the naivety
My thoughts aren't easy to understand
I get that
I can't hold that against you
I'm lost too
But I hope you stay for the long run
I can't do it alone.
