lyrics

[NAK]
I’m a sad, sad boy
I feel incomplete like a haploid
Life’s hard but we stay fly
In a black void: call me Asteroid
So stand poised
Like cheap steak, we stay tough
Those teeth break whenever they touch
Ya’ll gonna need braces: “straight up”
It’s so hard to swallow
Copped a bite from that tabloid column
Cracked the back of my mastoid on it- and vomit
Popping the anti-emetic
It’s pandemic
But we gotta hold on like callouses
The whole planet’s in a blood bath
But there’s bad blood: dialysis
But these politics are my eye sore
Colonizing my light source
Right wing and a left wing
With a stone heart: that’s Gargoyles
Prayers sound like negotiation
Like "God if you really made whole creation
Then show Your face. You know a plague
Makes it hard to debate Your association"
But maybe You’re choosing this silence
To show me my sin is a virus
They warned me but I didn’t listen
I’m sick but I kept it in quiet
Lying there, trying to closet it
“Stuck in one place,” “hiding my face”
I’m thinking that God is just testing me
I’m positive
I don’t think I know what’s worse:
Immediate outbreak, or media outburst
It sucks to me: the talk and the politics
Got me stuck between rock and a "pocalypse"
Get the Word out
Enough with the talk let the work out
We gotta fight hard no matter the turn out
It’s gonna take to love to flatten the curve out
"Father God I renew my commitment
I promise repentance when all of its lifted
I want to feel safer with all of my comfort
All of my stuff like You ain’t enough"
‘Cause truth is…
We were sick before this even happened
We were sick before this even happened
We were sick before this even happened: I’m positive
Oh, Father God, won’t you keep both of our hands clean
If love be the answer then God be my vaccine

[Jae Jin]
I want to be hopeful, wanna sing inspiration
But all of the pain all around me has got me defeated, I see limitations
But I want believe again
Breathe again, I want to be me again
But really all of this seems tedious
So I think I need to scream again
Oh, Father God, won’t you keep both of our hands clean
If love is the answer then God be my vaccine

Emotions for introverts. Sounds for the hopeful. Living proof that God could use losers. Music best enjoyed alone. ... more
