When you wake up you already in space,
When someone says you are spacing out
You spacing in
inner space

When you have to proof that you awake
When someone says you sleeping in
They creeping in
The inner space

When you have to lose the loves that had
To be replaced
To bring that inner feeling in
The winner takes

All the abundance you draw In
with bits of them thats in the way
It's on you when they weighing in
That's inner weight

Like she didn't see all
The true that she had
When it's right there
In her face

When they ask how long
You been awake
So they can compare
To their awakening
And equate

When they take it upon them selves
To be the gage
The measure of what it is to be awake
If they could just be like he is
They'd be ok

When he takes it up on himself
To make you wake
The pressure that helps
You make your break
If they could just be what he is
They'd be as great.

But in doing so all of them just move away
They leave him to be alone
To be a sage
In doing so he falls to be saved
He surrenders the flow be a wake

Have you ever woke up alone
Next to someone
And you thought they'd never leave

When you felt the urge to give your self
The negotiation
Like its either them or me,

Have you ever felt the inspirations
Get passed around
But they lacked gratuity

When you suffer from
Enabled gunmen
You bust to
Put him out his misery

Catch a blessing
Like a bullet
That ricochet
Off the building
Bypassed him
And went right in me

Self sabotage
By feeling guilty
Like what i earned
Don't belong to me

Catch a vibe like
Transmitted disease
Like what she had now belongs
To me
Since every time I woke up alone
I felt a part of her creeping over me

Self sabotage
By feeling unworthy
Like what i am
Belongs to them

Grab the first plate of what you dishing
Since beggars can't be choosy fiends

They love you something like a new device
Cause first you entice
And they really don't know how to freak you right
Night after night
They find your likes
you get them to switch
You over nice
Soon or later
Comes another prize
And they find the price
And gather might
Until you used and feel no pride
Belt less at transportation security
Is this any way for a man to carry on
More germs than a toilet seat
Like is this the way you treat your gods
Plagiarize alphabet soup
At the table with
No Amy's Cambels
Telling her
If you gonna burn me
In the long-run
At least
Please use Aroma candles
