l.e.sartistes lyrics – santogold

what i’m searching for
to tell it straight, i’m trying to build a wall
walking by myself
down avenues that reek of time to kill
if you see me keep going
be a p*ss by waver
build me up, bring me down
just leave me out you name dropper
stop trying to catch my eye
i see you good you forced faker
just make it easy
you’re my enemy you fast talker

i can say i hope it will be worth what i give up
if i could stand up mean for the things that i believe
i can say i hope it will be worth what i give up
if i could stand up mean for the things that i believe

what am i here for
i left my home to disappear is all
i’m here for myself
not to know you
i don’t need no one else
fit in so good the hope is that you cannot see me later
you don’t know me
i am an introvert an excavator
i’m duckin’ out for now
a face in dodgy elevators
creep up and suddenly
i found myself
an innovator

i can say i hope it will be worth what i give up
if i could stand up mean for the things that i believe
i can say i hope it will be worth what i give up
if i could stand up mean for the things that i believe

change, change, change
i want to get up out of my skin
tell you what
if i can shake it
i’m ‘a make this
something worth dreaming of

i can say i hope it will be worth what i give up
if i could stand up mean for the things that i believe
(change, change, change
i want to get up out of my skin
tell you what)
i can say i hope it will be worth what i give up
(if i can shake it
i’m ‘a make this
something worth dreaming of)
if i could stand up mean for the things that i believe
(change, change, change
i want to get up out of my skin
tell you what)
i can say i hope it will be worth what i give up
(if i can shake it
i’m ‘a make this
something worth dreaming of)
if i could stand up mean for the things that i believe
