DICHOTOMY

Chorus
If you can’t see what I can see
Then you must have some faith in me
Like my faith in you but you’re faking me
Now I brace myself for this make believe
Every time I leave, go downtown
Singing to myself want ‘em to hear me real loud
And they give me weird looks but I hold my ground
Sometime soon they might know my sound
If you can’t see what I can be
Then I’ll just let it breathe
Rather be your mystery
And I’m stuck in the dichotomy
Of I don’t need you unless you love me
Either you’re evil or you’re lovely

Verse 1
Good intentions pave the road to devil’s kitchens
And angels are figments of our imaginations fascinations
With fabrications and bad relations lead to past engagements
Til I finally pull over and stop back to the basics
Looking for love in all the wrong places
House shows, bars, clubs, taken or wasted, ironic
The synonym for inebriated
The highs and lows of the matrix
Searching for homeostasis
I’m open, I’m incomplete
Soft spoken, often listen before I speak
Not broken, just missing a piece of me
I’m a producer trying to fill these voids through my artistry
Let it pump pump pump through my arteries
I want to feel it all, that can make it hard for me
But sensitivity is a strength despite what ya’ll believe
I fill my art with my heart in its sleeve

Verse 2
At the party scene I’m partly seen and part of me
Is pardoning this problematic whack shit right in front of me
All this bartering and bar tending
Will probably bring disheartening
But at the moment it’s feeling a bit more promising
I don’t feel when I indulge
I suppose that I could pose
A question to these opposites
With all this liquid competence
Before I know what the problem is
Ignoring consequence like college kids
What you want to get? Yeah I’m offering
Easy to crack coronas, hide behind personas
But it all falls down ‘cause Jonah’s a madrona
Scared to do it now I don’t know if I can control the
Emptiness tomorrow in the sorrow of the sober
I looked up to them wanted to be ‘em when I’m older
But too many role models caught up in the supernova
That’s why half the time you see this water on my coaster
But if friends are here they’ll probably win me over
