LYRICS

"AROUND"

[CHORUS]
(You know i love you down)
But i can't miss you if you're always around
(You know i love you down)
But i can't miss you if you're always around

[VERSE I]
(Badu: I’m feelin’) a little boxed in
May i get a minute to reassess my space?
(I’m gettin’) a little claustrophobic and
There’s nothing like a moment
to get back to your quiet place

[CHORUS]
(You know i love you down)
But i can't miss you if you're always around
(You know i love you down)
But i can't miss you if you're always around

[VERSE II]
How do i explain I need you to amscray
But just for a little while? (I’m nauseous)
There’s no love lost but
I’m having dreams like Whoa Mugg and
I just want to miss your smile

[CHORUS]
(You know i love you down)
But i can't miss you if you're always around
(You know i love you down)
But i can't miss you if you're always around

[BRIDGE]
(Once we take a break
I can regain my strength)
Cause no good came from way too much good
(Once we take a break
I'll have gotten back my strength)
Cause I'll have miss so much not being ‘round my good thing

Oh yeah
I wanna miss you
But I cain’t
if you're always around

[CHORUS]
(You know i love you down)
But i can't miss you if you're always around
(You know i love you down)
But i can't miss you if you're always...

Always around.

"#HIGHGOALS [MINDING MY BUSINESS]"

[INTRO: 4x]

Duh duh duh duh

Duh duh duh duh

Du-Da duh doo... yeah

 

[VERSE I: Durand]

I only give my energy to

Shit I can control

Why stress myself out about life

My nigga... what for?

 

What good is it gon' do me

Ignoring the sunshine?

I know it can get ugly but

Y can find the beauty in life

 

[PRE-CHORUS]

Cause I'm high

And a little too high to care

Pay me no mind

Cause I'ma be right over there

 

[CHORUS]

Minding my business

My black ass business

I just wanna mind my business

And tend to this business

 

[VERSE II: Rose Gold]

If I wanna change my line

or block you ho’s then I can do it

just to keep my peace of mind

staying out the way but staying at the bank , cash or checks that I deposit

that’s my kind of high

 

[PRE-CHORUS]

(Cause I’m high)

And a little too high to care

(Pay me no mind)

And you can find me over there

 

[CHORUS]

Minding my business

My black ass business

I just wanna mind my business

And tend to this business

 

[INTRO: 4x]

Duh duh duh duh

Duh duh duh duh

Du-Da duh doo... yeah

"CHECK UPSTAIRS"

[VERSE I]
I've never had no complaints concerning where I stay
And between you and me, I'm the type of freak that's neat
So I can breathe | Even take you with me.
Call me “Mr. Clean” | And I'll reveal to you what it means.

[CHORUS]
But let me check upstairs
before you go up there
Let me check upstairs to make sure my room is square.

[VERSE II]
I'm nobodies Rosie, but I sure can use a vacuum
Never tried to be Florence, but I'll dust all over you
So you can breathe | Even escort the way out if you want...
Want to leave leave | Call me “Mr. Clean” | And I'll reveal to you what it means.

[CHORUS]
But let me check upstairs
Before you go up there
Let me check upstairs make sure my room is square.

[OUTRO]
I'm gon' take the garbage out
Make sure that I clean my house
From upstairs onto the lawn
Guarantee I won't miss a spot


 

"COLLIDE"

[VERSE I]
I've been hangin’ on by my urethra tryin’ not to give it up
But the longer I deny the harder it is getting by
(Esoteric photos, ever-erupting volcano)
Lord give me the strength to keep the lava from you, babe

[CHORUS]
What I have in mind to share
Your brain won't comprehend
But when our bodies finally collide
You'll fully understand

[VERSE II]
If I lay hands once again
My limbs will imitate London Bridge
I've been struggling to contain
That I already said your name

But see my mind is that 1% of cells
That the sanitizer didn't kill
Please forgive, I said please forgive
Harm wasn't meant

[CHORUS]
What I have in mind to share
Your brain won't comprehend
But when our bodies finally collide
You'll fully understand

"FLY ON THE WALL"

[VERSE I]
So I played a game of hearts
And that’s when you find how trifflin folks really are, oh Lord
But little did I know
The questions were bound to get out of control, good grief

However something crossed my mind, What about the next time
You guys start to spill, would you dare spill some of mine?
I’m not necessarily ashamed
I just know how fast shit travels nowadays, whatev

[CHORUS]
If I could be a fly on the wall
When they all start to talk
What I wouldn’t give to be a fly on the wall
They all go to uncover it all
All the things you wouldn’t say to my face
I bet it’s the truth unchained

[VERSE II]
I wonder if they’ll discuss
When I got “you know who” alone and went from soft to rough, oh yeah
Even though “such and such”
told me that the head alone was more than enough, I know

I didn’t mean to break your heart, wasn’t my aim at all
Yes I may be short, but I’ll walk into ya tall
All these colors have different shades
It just depends on who I was on that day, ok

[CHORUS]
If I could be a fly on the wall
When they all start to talk
What I wouldn’t give to be a fly on the wall
They all go to uncover it all
All the things you wouldn’t say to my face
I bet it’s the truth unchained

[BRIDGE]
Fly on the wall (oh baby!)
They wanna spill it all (ooh honey!)
Fly on the wall (Ooh Chile!)
They wanna tell it all (Run they Mouth!)

Fly on the wall
They wanna spill it all
Fly on the wall...
Suck on my *insert scatting here*

[CHORUS]
If I could be a fly on the wall
When they all start to talk
What I wouldn’t give to be a fly on the wall
They all go to uncover it all
All the things you wouldn’t say to my face
I bet it’s the truth unchained

"INSUFFICIENT"

[VERSE I]
You can still bring me to tears
Every time we reminisce
Over a decade of memories
Nothing can surpass this

But I can't do this no more
It's not you, it's me I'm sure
Not even cliché
I'm gentle but I'm frank
No one lost, we win or we learn

[CHORUS]
I'll love you from afar
I gotta keep my distance
You're a constant reminder of what I was missing
When I was insufficient

[VERSE II]
I cringe at your name
Shudder at the sound of your voice
I wish I could feel otherwise
But my heart leaves me no choice

Stuck around for too long
Because I knew you needed me
But it only does more damage
To keep hostage what desires to be free

And I can't do this no more
It's both you and me, I'm sure
Not even cliché
I'm gentle but I'm frank
I don't lose, I win or I learn

[CHORUS]
I'll love you from afar
I gotta keep my distance
You're a constant reminder of what I was missing
When I was insufficient

[BRIDGE]
I'll love you
From a far
You'll always
Be in my heart but
I gotta love you
From afar
Being away
Is so hard

I'll love you
From a far
You'll always
Be in my heart but
I gotta love you
From afar
You being close
Hurts my heart

[CHORUS]
I'll love you from afar
I gotta keep my distance
You're a constant reminder of what I was missing
When I was insufficient

"ODE TO DJ Q-NICE"

If you think the intro is dope
You ain’t heard nothin’ yet
If you think the soundcheck is dope
Just wait til I get back

It’s just a soundcheck, It’s just a soundcheck
1,2 1,2 it’s just a soundcheck
Hey yeah what? It’s just a soundcheck
Is this thing on? It’s just a soundcheck

It’s just a soundcheck, It’s just a soundcheck
1,2 hey yeah, it’s just a soundcheck
It’s just a soundcheck, It’s just a soundcheck

If you think the intro is dope
You ain’t heard nothin’ yet
If you think the soundcheck is dope
Just wait til I get back

"SAM'S VIBE"

[CHORUS]
Did you smoke today?
Have you yet put something on your stomach?
Did the sad kick in already?
If not, get ready cause it’s comin’

[VERSE I]
I am so walk I’ll never sleep again
you learn real quick to be your own best friend
expectation leads to heart break
and that’s what broke all of my faith

 but now that I know that it’s just life
and not because I’m not living right
and doing what I want done to me
helps me sleep so good at night

[CHORUS]
Did you smoke today?
Have you yet put something on your stomach?
Did the sad kick in already?
If not, get ready cause it’s comin’

[VERSE II]
Taking deep breath‘s anytime I’m weary
don’t apologize cause it remains empty
you don’t have to act like you give a damn

and if you did what could you do?
it’s not enough to even pull me through
filled to the brim with every cliché
I need a moment to get away

[BRIDGE]
Karma ain’t gonna do shit cause it never did exist
it’s just a little coping mechanism to keep you from losing your grip (Yeah)
Karma do shit cause it never did exist
it’s just a little coping mechanism to keep me from losing my grip
so just ask me if I smoked...

[CHORUS]
Did you smoke today?
Have you yet put something on your stomach?
Did the sad kick in already?
If not, get ready cause it’s comin’

[OUTRO]
Just love me (Ooh hey)
Don’t ask me (Ooh hey)

[CHORUS]
Did you smoke today?
Have you yet put something on your stomach?
Did the sad kick in already?
If not, get ready cause it’s comin’

"SMOOTH LANDING"

I could never tickle cause I only have a little
It’s a real smooth landing, but you still can have it
I doubt I’ll ever tickle and I know it makes you giggle
It’s a real smooth landing and you won’t regret it.

Oh whoa, Oh
Oh whoa, Oh

I could never tickle cause I only have a little
It’s a real smooth landing, but you still can have it
I doubt I’ll ever tickle and I know it makes you giggle
It’s a real smooth landing and you won’t regret it.

Oh whoa, Oh
Oh whoa, Oh

Oh, It’s a smooth...
Smooth landing it’s a
Smooth landing
Oh yeah, alright

Smooth landing it’s a
Smooth landing it’s a
Smooth landing it’s a
Smooth landing

"SEARCH PARTY"

[VERSE I]
I want to get so lost in you they send out a search party
I need to get so lost in you that they cannot find me
Tired of this agony
Tired of this life
I got to get somewhere
To dwell in peace and light

[CHORUS]
Do not try to find
Don't bother to look
I got lost on purpose
And when I'm ready I'll surface

[VERSE II]
I want to get so lost in you they send out a search party
I need to get so lost in you that they won't find me
Hurting my damn feelings
Don't want to be an option
What's it like to be a priority
I know the feeling of nothing

[CHORUS]
Do not try to find
Don't bother to look
I got lost on purpose
And when I'm ready I'll surface

[VERSE I]
I want to get so lost in you they send out a search party
I need to get so lost in you that they cannot find me
Tired of this agony
Tired of this life
I got to get somewhere
To dwell in peace and light

[CHORUS]
Do not try to find
Don't bother to look
I got lost on purpose
And when I'm ready I'll surface

I’ll surface...
when I’m ready, I’ll surface...
I’ll surface.

"UNBLOCKED"

[PRE-CHORUS]
HELLO! HELLO!
HELLO! HELLO!

[CHORUS]
You’ll remain on blocked
So you can see just
How far along I am without you

[VERSE I]
I have been through it hard
My bitter jaded broken heart
Had it out for me right from the start
But I won’t turn into who you are

[PRE-CHORUS]
HELLO! HELLO!
HELLO! HELLO!

[CHORUS]
You’ll remain on blocked
So you can see just
How far along I am without you

[VERSE II]
I felt pain I never knew
And staying with salt in my wounds
Just when I thought I lost me
God let me know I was complete...a.k.a. ME!

[PRE-CHORUS]
HELLO! HELLO!
HELLO! HELLO!

[CHORUS]
You’ll remain on blocked
So you can see just
How far along I am without you
