Count Me Out (lyrics):


We may not know which way to go On this dark road (Mr. Duckworth) All of these hoes make it difficult Session ten, breakthrough One of these lives, I'ma make things right With the wrongs I've done, that's one of you now With the Father, Son, 'til then, I fight Rain on me, put the blame on me Got guilt, got hurt, got shame on me Got six magazines that's aimed at me Done every magazine, what's fame to me? (And I'm trippin' and fallin') It's a game to me, where the bedroom at? Sleep, I ain't had affairs with that What's fair when the hearts and the words don't reach? What's fair when the money don't take things back? It's rare when somebody take your dreams back? (And I'm trippin' and fallin') I care too much, wanna share too much In my head too much, I shut down too I ain't there too much, I'm a complex soul They layered me up, then broke me down And moralities dust, I lack in trust (and I'm trippin' and fallin') This time around, I trust myself Please everybody else but myself All else fails, I was myself Out done fear, out done myself This year, you better one yourself (and I'm trippin' and fallin') Masks on the babies, mask on an opp Wear masks in the neighborhood stores you shot But a mask won't hide who you are inside Look around, the realities carved in the lies Wipe my ego, dodge my pride (and I'm trippin' and fallin') Look myself in the mirror Amityville, I ain't seen nothin' scarier I fought like a pit bull terrier, blood I shed could fill up aquariums Tell my angels, "Carry 'em" (and I'm trippin' and fallin') Every emotion been deprived Even my strong points couldn't survive If I didn't learn to love myself, forgive myself a hundred times, dawg I love when you count me out (huh) I love when you count me out I love when you count me out (wah, woo, ooh) I love when you count me out Fuck it up, fuck it up Fuck it up, fuck it up, fuckin' it up How you gon' win my trust when the lies run deep?

(Sheeesh) Beep, beep, crash our feelings in the middle of the street (vroom, vroom) Fuck it up, fuck it up Fuck it up, fuck it up, fuckin' it up (huh, huh) When you was at your lowest, tell me where the hoes was at? When you was at your lowest, tell me where the bros was at? Three-thirty in the mornin', scroll through the call log (huh, huh, huh, huh) Ain't nobody but the mirror lookin' for the fall off (Brrt) I love when you count me out I love when you count me out I love when you count me out I love when you count me out (wah, woo, wah, woo, wah) My name is in your mouth, shoo, shoo It's gon' take more than pride to stop Call 9-1-1, I caught a body Sun up now, yesterday is fadin' Healing's only 'bout a mile away Let me tell you 'bout the women I know (that's my baby) I know karma like to follow us strong (sheesh) I know millionaires that feel alone (sheesh) Anytime I couldn't find God, I still could find myself through a song Many find they life in a phone Fuck it up, fuck it up Fuck it up, fuck it up, fuckin' it up You said I'd feel better if I just work hard without liftin' my head up That left me fed up You made me worry, I wanted my best version but you ignored me Then changed the story Then changed the story Good energy in the room, drop the location, please Antibiotic for the womb, when I'm frustrated, please (Antibiotic for the womb, when I'm frustrated) Tryna keep my good conscious in rotation Thoughts in my head, they livin' there with no- (tryna keep my good) I made a decision, never give you my feelings Fuck with you from, fuck with you from a distance Some put it on the Devil when they fall short I put it on my ego, lord of all lords Sometimes I fall for her, dawg I love when you count me out I love when you count me out (sheesh) I love when you count me out (sheesh) I love when you count me out My name is in your mouth Fuck it up, fuck it up (true, true) Fuck it up, fuck it up, fuckin' it up Miss Regrets, I believe that you done me wrong (Miss Regrets) Miss Regrets, can you please exit out my home?
