lyrics

(Verse 1)
Ooli ooli ooli, yes I heard you fool now spit it out
Struggling with truth and you frozen like you cotton mouth
Take a sip of this, coz I heard you like to live it out
Did I really do that last night, shit you gappin out
I’m done heard all excuses
Let em hang in these nooses
Blinded by the lime light coz you live in illusions,
Analyzing equations never finding conclusions?
Threw my conciseness deuces, fuck this shit is abusive
See I constantly do this,
See I’m counting who looses
I deflected so hard givin myself endless bruises
Words weigh heavy teaching mind to correct time
Truth stays heavy stolen time in a white lie
No use in poetry, don’t follow the metaphor
Talking less fighting more, duckin through the back door
I been losing battles but this time I’ma win the war,
You ain’t who you used to be, so what the hell you crying for,
Make the bed, lie in it, that’s the bet you risk it all
Make the bed, and die in it, that’s the act I’m falling for,
Fool’s game, stand-off, giving all I did before,
Close the book and rip the page, this chapter I ain’t reading more

(Chorus)
If I lose you will find myself again
If I, lose you will I, find myself
If I lose you will find myself again
If I, lose you will I, find myself

(Verse2)
Yes I heard you twice, now spit it out
One too many times, that I actually forgot about
I’d be a fool twice, three times, over love
Sade came on that night saying I’m a soldier of
Still alive, tell it all, asking me about the scars
I survive, told em all, aftermath is never far
Slow dance, last song, devil dance too long
Kiss from a rose, to a bond that was life long
Bed beautiful, thorns didn’t feel right
Like clippin wings off of angels out in mid-flight
Guess I was sleepin, wine n dinin with the monsters
Blinded and divided, came, saw and they conquered,
Never knew better, word is bond to the letter,
Broken to the last verb, tie, cut, sever,
Sink or swim I choose to drown, don’t need you to save me,
No regrets, wisdom now, learn and set the spirit free

(Chorus)
If I lose you will find myself again
If I, lose you will I, find myself again
If I lose you will find myself again
If I, lose you will I, find myself again

(Verse 3)
Make the bed, lie in it,
that’s the bet you risk it all
Make the bed, die in it
that’s the act I’m falling for,
Make the bed, lie in it,
that’s the bet you risk it all
Make the bed, die in it
that’s the act I’m falling for,

Make the bed -----*drum crash*
That’s the bet you risk it all
Make the ---------- *drum crash*
That’s the act I’m falling for
Make the bed -----*drum crash*
That’s the bet you risk it all
Make the ---------- *drum crash*
That’s the act I’m falling for

(Add lib)
It takes one to lie, and one to believe,
It takes one to lie, and one to believe,
It takes one to lie, and one to believe,
It takes one to lie, and two to deceive,
