Y E A H CHEEM 2K18 BAYBEE

you spent months waiting for now to be like back then,
now I know I'll never get to hear you laugh again
I already can't picture your face in my head
when I try I only hear all of the things you said, left on read
next day you say you made a mistake
a week later we agreed that we'd just go on a break
and in the middle of that, 2 weeks, no contact
you hit me up just to say you didn't wanna go back, well

you don't want me to leave you alone
you don't want me to throw my bone

tell me, who's it gonna be in the end? I hope not me,
I think you know me better than friends, I'm history (repeating)
defeated by the look in your eyes, no it's not anything

I'm ignoring, cuz I'm over it, I'm not over it but
if I don't tell nobody and act like it's funny and make jokes about it then what
then I'll get better and start to forget it and get on with everything I was already worried about
maybe now this time around I'll find someone that makes me want to settle down, but still

you don't want me to leave you alone
you don't want to know my story, no

tell me, who's it gonna be in the end? I hope not me,
I think you know me better than friends, I'm history (repeating)
defeated by the look in your eyes, no it's not anything

you look just like a girl that I used to know

tell me, who's it gonna be in the end? I hope not me,
I think you know me better than friends, I'm history (repeating)
defeated by the look in your eyes, no it's not anything

tell me
not me
repeating
defeated by the look in your eyes, no it's not anything
Track Name: Backhand
tell me if you want to try something,
try to shock me, time to quit with the talking
I've seen it, but you're getting closer
are you sober? should I not come over?
tell me if you need to say something,
I've been through it all before, this is nothing
meet me so we can sink lower
are you sober? should I still come over?

asked me to try and decide, yes I wanted to
asked me to stay this night, yes I wanted to
holding you tight while you dream won't change anything
hanging my head in shame, I lay here awake
why don't you take the pills you know that you need to?
why are you hanging with people who you know were mean to you?
I feel like I'm taking advantage, it's probably true
ask me to stay overnight, of course I want to

tell me if you want to try something,
try to shock me, time to quit with the talking
I've seen it, but you're getting closer
are you sober? should I not come over?
tell me if you need to say something,
I've been through it all before, this is nothing
meet me so we can sink lower
are you sober? should I still come?

I like to get to know you when you’re falling apart,
I like it full speed ahead, already into your heart,
yeah, I like your art, I like the way you exist,
and I love it when you call me a piece of shit,
I like it when you call me out on the ledge,
I like it when you talk to me cuz you can’t handle your stress,
yeah, I like it cuz I know it’s good as it gets,
I like it when you up and turn around and fuck me again, aye

tell me if you want to try something,
try to shock me, time to quit with the talking
I've seen it, but you're getting closer
are you sober? should I not come over?
tell me if you need to say something,
I've been through it all before, this is nothing
meet me so we can sink lower
are you sober? should I still come over?
Track Name: Cheem Type Beat
Don’t look at him, look at me, I wanna see your face
when you realize how it be, I like the empty space I
don’t really mind anymore, I think I missed you once but
that was a while ago, yeah I don’t mean to front cuz
I was emotional then, I’m not emotional now,
it didn’t use to make sense, I guess my mind was just clouded,
I’m working through shit but I’m working through shit quick, so fast
I’m blowing through moods like Michael McDonald blows through harmony tracks

I'm only happy to know that you're not, when I heard you
were looking for me, I can do without
that burden on me
now I'm breaking the chains that you placed, and I'm free
I can't tell what I was looking for,
what it used to be doesn't work anymore
now I'm lost in another sauce, but not yours

Not sure why I let you talk me into all of those doubts
Not sure why you look so different to me now
saw a brand new picture of you, and felt sick
but I probably just picked up something from Sam in Massachusetts,
yeah it’s over, it’s done, it’s hurts,
and I’ll put a SH*T inside your mailbox if you make me ship you Cheem merch,
That ship has sailed, that shit is done,
it’s kinda weird to think I’m still using your phone

I'm only happy to know that you're not, when I heard you
were looking for me, I can do without
that burden on me
now I'm breaking the chains that you placed, and I'm free
I can't tell what I was looking for,
what it used to be doesn't work anymore
now I'm lost in another sauce, but not yours
Track Name: Luxury
You remember when we made up excuses for this,
and you, falling further all the time, just rewind,
try to leave the party but there’s someone in the way,
try to leave it but there’s always someone in the way,
it’s just one girl

takin my time, I hate it, you’re forcing it out of me,
shoulda never gave a damn bout anatomy but you’re
wasting my time, I’m saying, everything you want
but if you can you’re gonna take it all wrong, like

tell me you like me, tell me you’re mine,
tell me I’m pretty, tell me you lied

try to leave the party but there’s someone in the way,
try to leave it but there’s always someone in the way,
it’s just one girl

try to slide in closer but there’s someone in the way,
try to catch me playing cuz you just love your games,
it’s just one girl

don’t play with my fuckin heart

holding fast but nothing’s left, you were all I had

how do you find the time to stay alive, stretching it out and burn it away
Track Name: Hypercolor
don’t
please don’t
I’m trying but there’s no
equal
I’m smiling like I don’t
need you
I just want to come
with you

why is the last time always the best
I’ve got the weight of eighty thousand texts on my chest
how did it get so difficult at the end
how could I do something to lose my best friend

I tried so hard not to fuck it up that I did,
we never finished the puzzle before I ruined it,
I doubt we would’ve, with all the pieces we hid,
Thought we knew how to forgive, thought we knew just how to live but we

don’t
please don’t
I’m trying but there’s no
equal
I’m smiling like I don’t
need you
I just want to come
with you

why is the last time always my favorite
don’t worry, I don’t want to talk about it
is it easy for you, yeah can you rationalize it?
don’t worry, I don’t want to talk about it
don’t worry, I don’t want to talk about it
don’t wanna, I don’t want to talk about it
don’t worry, I can’t stand to be around it
till it stops hurting, I don’t want to talk about it
Track Name: Flex/Reflex
I thought I needed you
but I can see that you don't mean it
I thought I needed you
there's no way that we would make it

so fragile, so delicate, how can you
deal with it, your piece don't fit, you quit
it's alright, I'm not quite as vulnerable
but I'm still trying to be

start from the top, start from back when it was hot
somehow it all dropped off
thinking you good when you not, giving me all that I want
so I never saw
thought it was me, thought I was being too
hard on you, come to find out I was only getting part of the truth

I never asked for anything, and you gave me shit I didn't need
and couldn't use but to confuse those who expected functioning
you say you miss all of your friends, well tell me why they left again
you cling to me like autumn leaves in breezes that make buildings bend

I thought I needed you
but I can see that you don't mean it
I thought I needed you
there's no way that we would make it

fuck det shiet

you told me that you tried your best, why would you want to try again?
you could stay but I don't care, you're not the same you anymore
trying not to think about you broke me up more than once

I never asked for anything, and you gave me shit I didn't need
and couldn't use but to confuse those who expected functioning
you say you miss all of your friends, well tell me why they left again
you cling to me like autumn leaves in breezes that make buildings bend

I thought I needed you
but I can see that you don't mean it
I thought I needed you
well maybe I do

but I don't wanna spend another day thinking maybe we should get along
and I don't wanna hear you ever say that I never wrote any love songs

I wanna get you outside, wanna get you alone
so you can tell me everything that I already know
come on act, it up, now it’s for the sake of the moment
it’s too good to be true, I have to see it broken
like half of me wants to see it go on, but the
rest of what is left is dying to see it gone
you fucked up, that’s why, you just won’t quit
nah, just bring the beat back in, I’m really fuckin with it
Track Name: Dream Sequence (ft Sephrina)
Hey you, (I thought you wouldn’t answer but you)
came through, you’re looking lovely at a glance but then I
(seem to,) notice details that don’t make sense, now you’re
(see-through, my head is giving up the pretense as I
take control, I’m only getting better at it)
you need to go, (this is going from bad to
worse), I know I’m invincible here,
but it hurts when I wake up and it disappears

I could show you what I mean, if you were really here with me,
but I wake up just to find out the night we spent was just a dream,
falling out of bed, try to fall asleep again,
but I lay there, my mind racing, and try to picture you instead

(my mom says I spend too much time) sleeping
(but I feel like I spend too much time) awake
a break-up replays a million times
but I know I’ll get it right if I just get one more take
(I thought I forgot about you), I know I tried to,
(thought I had the power to erase it, and maybe I do,)
(but I didn’t and a bit of you stuck around)
waiting for the moment to strike and bring me down,
right around (4 or 5,) I finally close my eyes,
(don’t recall) when it works, (or how it pilots my insides)
but I know how it goes, yeah I know it feels,
(I try to lie but I know it comes from somewhere real)
(probably signifies I have some shit to work out)
a certain someone I’m thinking of, (some things I need to talk about)
(wish I was proactive) but it’s kind of a bad time
no way to fix my problems in the middle of the night

I could show you what I mean, if you were really here with me,
but I wake up just to find out the night we spent was just a dream,
falling out of bed, try to fall asleep again,
but I lay there, my mind racing, and try to picture you instead
Track Name: Fashion Valley
you've got to notice babe that I'll be your do or die
you've got to notice the way I'll stick in your mind
you've got to understand that I'll get tired of waiting for ya
I'm not surprised you realized I was made for you

oh shit, you tried to but you know you can't quit
it's looking like you can't keep up with the rhythm

and that's exactly what I'm tryna say
we had those feelings but they went away
we had something beautiful but it wasn't built to last
yeah we both had baggage but that's what I'm trying to lay in the past

you've got to notice babe that I'm still your only one
you've got to notice the way I just have more fun
you've to to understand the matter of fact, we hold ourselves back (yeah)
we held each other just to stay on track

oh shit, you tried to but you know you can't quit
it's looking like you can't keep up with the rhythm

you just mad cuz you never got to hit that
uh huh, watching it I get to sit back
brush off the dust as I let you fall apart
keepin that shit so close, you gotta quit that
I was better when I learned to let go
but I know it's only easy for me and not you, oh
I wish I could sympathize
but I'm too busy kickin it to really even realize
not that you'd just take my help
not that I'd offer it either, not my demeanor
not our agreement, you wanted to veto it
anyone else want this one? you can keep her
felt so cheated, defeated, betrayed
yeah I was so stuck in that maze
got the fuck out when I did, now you wishin for this
look who's still feelin some type of way and

oh shit, you tried to but you know you can't quit
it's looking like you can't keep up with the rhythm
Track Name: Spring Breeze
Leave me be, I’m riding this out
I’ve got your message on my mind
and I’m not the type to doubt
myself but I’m running out of time
got my goals laid out and I’m
not sure if I ever realized
set my sights far too high,
but that’s never stopped me from giving it a try

I want it, I’m down,
don’t stop it just yet now
I’ve got this wrist band,
you won’t give me a chance
I’m off it, I’m out,
you want it? keep it, how
I lost it, don’t know,
my profits, no show

toeing the line between self-aware and sellout core,
never mind, bands are not allowed to prosper anymore,
maybe we paid for it, or we’re just industry guys,
the success of this record is gonna be funded by lies, and I
don’t think this is what you want from me,
I don’t listen when you talk to me
somehow found some grief they handed out
what the fuck are you so sad about

I want it, I’m down,
don’t stop it just yet now
I’ve got the wrist band,
you won’t give me a chance
I’m off it, I’m out,
you want it? keep it, how
I lost it, don’t know,
my profits, no show

old, everything I hear is old
people acting like it’s so new and so bold
I’ve heard it, tried it, deserted
why do I put so much time and effort,
you’re cold
everyone I see is cold
they’re shouldering over to someone who’s already sold their soul
but they’ll get burned in a minute
sinister in his intentions, well I coulda told ya
Track Name: Zona (ft Iso)
it's hard to say I need you to feel (whole)
I could tell you that you told me (so)
life is too short for the act,
I don’t want to hear any of that, I don’t want to hear any of that

I'm keeping in mind it's what I wanted, that's why
I'm making the moves when I said I'd rather die
than stumble across paths of stuck in my waysides
only to crumble at your feet

Damn, you got me right where you want me baby

it's hard to say I need you to feel (whole)
I could tell you that you told me (so)
life is too short for the act,
I don’t want to hear any of that, I don’t want to hear any of that

(Iso does his thing here)
Track Name: Vibe Museum
just need a vibe that I can hide inside

not, satisfied with, all the line widths,
or the font or color,
don’t, want to talk, disgusted with you,
and it’s just the cover,
sick, of the “insight,” it’s a big fight,
need a way to disappear
leave it all for a while, find another way to make me smile, I’m

chasing something fake, need to take a break,
lock me up,
ship myself away, my vacation days
never quite enough
to hard reset, make myself forget,
why I left
ditched my little mess, back from my recess
time to catch my breath

bred it, felt it, left it, melted,
couldn’t stand to be making it when it don’t feel real,
took my shit back, made it better,
sold it, come what may I will just chill,
I don’t care to keep on stressing,
it’s messing me up, I’m not listening to y’all,
waiting for us to just fall, try to, keep us, down but, we just,
ball, moneymakers end with aye,
I do not care what your fake asses say,
so fucking tired of being awake,
trust imma bust out the rust in my cage,
Stuck on the, stuck on the, stuck on the, same,
you need to get something new, let it change,
push us away when we’re right in your face,
then we just come back bigger and spit on your grave

just need a vibe that I can hide inside
(away from you)
(when things fall through)
(to make it through)

now it’s over thank the fuckin
lord, if you were hating or worse you were bored,
always trying to improve,
always trying something new,
always in but never worry bout a fuckin thing,
that ain’t no job for a king,
yeah I think that’s everything.
