Oddisee – Things

Oddisee – Things

[Verse 1]
On my mind when I wake up
All my time try to take up
If I could save up money like worry, I’d be a rich man but sorrow played much
I done made a [?] that I’m a centre of a system that caused in a day rust
Set a stage and a monologue player, me in the audience, all in my maker
What a view when it’s all for the show, assuming that I’m doing what you already know
I think I’m in the middle of a palm every globe everybody tryna steal what I already own
But up in this life we are all but a loan, the feeling that you are is a problem, condone
Just sunlight hit the spotlight that we hold like it’s one light that we cuff tight til it’s gone
One candle on the cake tryna take it, so set sail on the race tryna take with
We are all [?] in the chips that we placing, better build stuff anybody else cave in
So I’m holding onto pressure like it’s all mine, that ain’t sweat it’s just the way I keep the floor shine
Everybody queued up in the long run, thinking that we next to the shoreline

[Hook]
Things I’m going through, yeah
Things I’m going through, yeah
Things I’m going through, yeah
Things I’m going through, I got
Things I’m going through, yeah
Things I’m going through, yeah
Things I’m going through, yeah
Things I’m going through, yeah

[Verse 2]
I want a lot more things, people try to tell me what a lot more bring
A headstrong man would take a lot more string, see a pleasure in the presence of a lot more pain
It’s like I’m in the plot of a horror flick scene, and I’mma run towards what I thought I heard screams
Cause they draw me like a self portrait blank paper trying to fill it with a lot more green
Make life in the life worth living is a life worth giving to a fight for dreams
When your schemes matter more than the next man’s and the next man’s matter more than the rest and we all forget that we are not all things
So I’mma take time in the line, all those behind me can chill, but if I was last I’d probably be the first one to whine, for real

[Hook]
Things I’m going through, yeah
Things I’m going through, yeah
Things I’m going through, yeah
Things I’m going through, I got
Things I’m going through, yeah
Things I’m going through, yeah
Things I’m going through, yeah
Things I’m going through, yeah
We going through it
They going through it
Us going through it
You going through it
We going through it
They going through it
Us going through it
You going through it

[Verse 3]
We just want to matter more tryna be the matador in the pit of bull
Tryna gather our status to the masses lookin at the glass like that’s pitiful
I ain’t seein’ what you seein’ cause your problems ain’t my problems how you solve ’em really I don’t even care
Puttin’ pressure on the shoulders that ain’t really there but I know you see it when you stare

[Hook]
Things I’m going through, yeah
Things I’m going through, yeah
Things I’m going through, yeah
Things I’m going through, I got
Things I’m going through, yeah
Things I’m going through, yeah
Things I’m going through, yeah
Things I’m going through, yeah
