MACKLEMORE & RYAN LEWIS lyrics : "St. Ides"

I think happiness went the other way
Sometimes you just have to wait
I never believed in God

But things got so $#[email protected] up
That I had to pray
I used to steal my Daddy's cabernet

Never thought it would turn into a rattlesnake
Thinkin', everything will be all right
If we could get thru the week

Maybe see another Saturday
All the while where we know where to go
Argue with the homies bout who's gonna row

Throw on Goodie Mob
Some food for the soul
Till it's two in the morning

When rain hits the windshield
And everything is still
Nothing really is a big deal

One hand on the steering wheel
And we gonna be all right


I had a brown paper bag
St. Ides in that mother$#[email protected]
Around the city we smash

5-0 comin' then you know I'm running
Crawling the broken fences, when %#@! gets hard
You know who your friend is

And when I lose perspective
Need to go to a place where I lose reception
Looking at the satellites pass by

Reflect there on my past life
I can barely remember last night
Another morning, swearing it's the last time

Where would I be?
Can't start over you don't get a new ID
I know the devil fancy me

But that don't mean that mother$#[email protected] get to dance with me!

I bought a house, second guess of what I own now (What?)

Traffic movement kinda slow now (What?)
I watch a population grow wild (What?)
A bunch of people I don't know now (What?)

My city's changed and I'm zoned out
I thought about New York, maybe SoCal
Put up condos people can't afford now

Landmarks bulldozed been tore down
Overpopulated but can seem like a ghost town
Keep a couple real ones with me

When it goes down
Lack of diversity, I think about Sloane now
Only reason I would ever leave my hometown

If I still drink, I would crack a 40 ounce
Parents finally left, moved away, and they sold the house
It's really hard to ignore it now

Wish that we could sort it out
Last couple sips pour it out
St. Ides
