scream back (01.28.2022)

Come and scream, come and scream cuz I wanna scream back
Stop mumbling your words, start running your track
I smoke you out, you stay pitch black
Come and scream, come and scream cuz I wanna
Scream back

Listen, listening
Do this for attention we never get
It’s been well over a decade, always too ashamed so we
Burn away our day reading epithets

We do it cuz we have to
Making due in light blue
Oppressive noble lights over our heads
And the City’s all around us; they flew in from Columbus
“this is not your home”, they say

Thinkin’ it’s the greatest when it’s really just latest trends on your phone
Dedicated to pretending you swam the East on your own

Come and scream, come and scream cuz I wanna scream back
Stop mumbling your words, start running your track
I smoke you out, you stay pitch black
Come and scream, come and scream cuz I wanna scream back
Come and scream, come and scream cuz I wanna scream back
Stop mumbling your words, start running your track
I smoke you out, you stay pitch black
Come and scream, come and scream cuz I wanna
Scream back

Dontcha, don’t you think I’m tired of
Being thrown around like anything
Don’t want to be the rag that stays under your bed while
You go out and make it (go and make, go and make)

Then you say, “I’m sorry, not been myself lately”
“Take the 3 to Crown and give me head”
And then you think I’m crazy, living in New Jersey
Leaving you alone in bed, bed, bed

Thinkin’ it’s the greatest when it’s really just latest trends on your phone
Dedicated to pretending you swam the East on your own

Come and scream, come and scream cuz I wanna scream back
I’m tired of pretending your hands are cracked
Why? You say you know where you are, but
You can’t even find your way back
Come and scream, cuz I wanna scream back
Stop mumbling your words, start running your track
Should I smoke you out, if you stay pitch black?
Come and scream, come and scream cuz I wanna
Scream Back, Back…

Come and scream, come and scream cuz I wanna scream back
Stop mumbling your words, start running your track
I smoke you out, you stay pitch black
Come and scream, come and scream

Come and scream, come and scream cuz I wanna scream back
Stop mumbling your words, start running your track
I smoke you out, you stay pitch black
Come and scream, come and scream cuz I wanna
Scream back
