Oddisee – Things (The Iceberg Album)

[Verse One]
Things, on my mind when I wake up
Things, all my time try to take up
If I could save up money like worry, I’d be a rich man but sorrow would plague much
I done made up the fiction that I’m a centre of a system causing the day rust
Center stage and a monologue play of, me in the audience, all in my make up
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 heavy globe everybody trying to steal what I already own
But oh in this life we are all but alone, 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 trying to take it, souls set sail on the race trying to take wind
We are all faves in the chips that we placing, better build self 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 shined
Everybody queued up in the long grind, thinking that we next in the short line

[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 Two]
I want a lot more things, Biggie tried to tell me what a lot more bring
A headstrong man would take a lot more strain, seeing pleasure in the presence of a lot more pain
It’s like I’m in the plot of a horror flick scene, and I’ma run towards where I thought I heard screams
Cause things draw me like a self portrait, blank paper trying to fill it with a lot more green
Cause things make life, and a 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’ma 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 Three]
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
