lyrics

Sometimes I feel me stepping out of this body

I feel like I should just probably

be making it or just

ending it all

and other times I feel like living forever

I feel like I could really make it

whatever I do I feel like I'll be great

it's

up and down

strong and weak

grounded in quicksand and concrete

I speak silently

love so violently

hands in my pockets, balled up into fists

I take em out sometimes, open em, and blow you a kiss

I wisk myself off to dreamland puffin a jay

I don't smoke

but I feel at certain times of the day

like when the sunset's orange, leaving the sky gray

the earth looks how I feel when it cooks that way

and in a way I feel like I am flying

to shoot me down they tryin

I be tryna dodge it

tryna outsmart they logic

find lodging in a strange land

comfort in shaking strange hands

and refuse the strangest demands

I emerge unscathed and

unbehaved

uncompromised

fuck what they say

always emerge unscathed

and

unbehaved

uncompromised fuck what they say




I'm uncompromised

ignoring what they say

uncompromised

I'mma make my own way

uncompromised

you can leave

you can stay

stand firm

don't sway

everyday

all day




I'm uncompromised

ignoring what they say

uncompromised

I'mma make my own way

uncompromised

you can leave

you can stay

stand firm

don't sway

everyday

all day



Sometimes I wish that I could just disappear

and end up on the other side

like instead of down here

cause everybody wanna go and fuck up your career before it starts

you tryna put it together

they sit and pick you apart

I'm like

pardon my dust I'm under construction

but still obstructin YOUR shine

so what the fuck we discussin?

this is my style and it's mine

I'm signed to God

your labels can't touch me

I go at my own pace

you can't rush me

y'all mixed up like a slushie

fakin you got the solution

it's more like a suspension

yeah, in chemistry class I paid attention

not to mention

that I've never gone with what the world says

leaning not unto your knowledge is the way I know the ledge

today they want you in red

tomorrow it'll be blue

I'm over here in this yellow yellin "you do you!"

and none of what they said turns out to be true

I keep my headphones on now

you do you

I'm uncompromised.
