These wings...
Have seen things most men would melt apart from
it's like, wait,wait,wait,wait,wait,
all my drunk destiny pushed was one radio flyer chock full of halo parts,
ringin' this crime,
like man, I could fix your broken shine,
We're all saint swept serpent tide 'round charcoal tomorrow,
bunk holiday debt, easy now brother, I'm here,
I'm now, then and there, I we us them it I'm sorry, I'm,
god, this final extension's beautiful, but friend, I don't deserve it,
I beg of you sweet father,
please detach my chest's swollen lining,
I can't handle asymmerty,
and if it means my grand finale,
don't tally the votes,
finish me dormant with,
torture machine silencer piece,
position where eyelids will reach
red well before I'm sure,
I've never asked for much,
never felt golden benefit worthy,
I gots, what I gots, and what I don't gots don't concern me,
I'm no model,
never aspired to be velociraptor fossil,
man, there wasn't rainment,
man, I never had a say in this,
I, wanna be the normalcy, that normalcy was jealous of,
no shimmer,
no celestial flight midwinter,
enter me now,
feet through greet and lowlife virus,
I'm not-I'm not ready for all this business,
that for some reason you all refer to as a privilege,
I mean, look at me,
my feathers drag, this harp plays out of tune,
I fly about as straight as a blind tugboat through my legacy,
accidentally killed cupid with his own weaponry,
and man, that was my homie,
talk about not cut out for these pristine pearly robings,
what could I possibly have done,
you really want me to steer child populace back on beaten path,
like teach em' morals,
I can't be a part of something I ain't searchin my feelings man,
I'm from the dungeon,
so from here on out,
it's hark the herald nothing,
listen, I quit.
That's it, but for the life of me,
one thing has plagued my being from the get-go,
why place the most blessed and sacred honors upon an alley cat like this,
I just don't get it, oh.. my god, it just dawned on me,
wait a second, oh, god...

x2 - You have been a witness,
you have seen the days when,
I apply lies in a billion different ways, and,
now I harbor bad karma,
doomed to cope with the fact I dodged the ring but gotta show these cats the ropes

x8 - Bad karma,
please lead these little wings to a road,
please lead this little halo to a child with a lighter load,
I'ma hold this tight like a life vest and throw it to a mic

    General CommentI think he's saying

    "enter me now,
    see-through cretin lowlife virus..."

    I've also seen different versions of "I'ma hold this tight like a life vest and throw it to a mic"

    I always thought it was "I'ma hold this tight, like a lifeless doll through the night" but it seems to be the general conclusion that mic is the last word...

    General CommentTo correct the above, I had an epiphony: It's I'ma hold this tight like a life lesson told through a mic. I gurantee that if you listen to it close, youll hear it too.
