lyrics

[Verse 1: St. Kelly]
not a scratch on the surface, laugh on purpose,
so busted up on the inside, my ink dried,
dip the quill and how the ink cry,
blotted mess on my page, haven't rested in days,
and I feel, it's time for our therapy session
the doc asked am I aware of my blessing?
you mean the gift and the curse?
nah, yeah, I got it the worst, God, and it hurts
but I'm so committed,
couldn't know, know until I really did it,
I really live it, really vivid,
and every past decision I still live with
I get lifted to rest my brain,
slowly fill up my whole chest, then drain [exhale]
and whenever I got questions again,
drugs aren't the answer, but they lessen the pain

[Chorus, St. Kelly singing]
I sit down on the bench and I stare at the sky
where do I go, say it ain't so, oh it's a lie
(go on walk away!)
got a new pair of wings and I'm wanting to fly
but how can I go, say it ain't so, oh tell me why
(go on, walk away!)

[Verse 2: Bils Rayoe]
man, I'm lookin' in the mirror, I'm tryin' to smile
but my image ain't smilin' back
I see a heartbroken fella, he's about to crack
pistol in my face, it's about to clap
it's about a wrap (nah!)
fuck anybody tryin' to tell me that
I ain't beggin for no tears and I ain't lookin' for no pitty
move at my own pace, don't need nobody with me
'cause in my grave, you ain't comin' with me, uh
my head touch the ground when I pray that you forgive me/=
and when I close my eyes I see grandma smiling at me
is she proud of me? is she lovin' my courage?
how I go and get it if I really want it
the youngest of all carried in your little stomach,
but yet my attitude is like fuck it, so rugged
hand on my nuts, tell the whole world that I'm c-c-c-comin'
8 miles and runnin, I ain't scared of nothin!

[Chorus]

about

St. Kelly Vancouver, British Columbia

I like music with intensity. I lean towards darker sounds. I love powerful melodies, I live for powerful rhythms. I like things tribal and sexy. I like things that look, sound and feel like magic.
