Things are getting outta control Feels like I'm running out of soul
You are getting too heavy to hold Think I'll be letting you go

My self portrait shows a man that the wealth tortured
Self-absorbed with his own self-forfeit
A shelf full of awards Worshiping the war ships that set sail on my sea of life
When I see my own self I wonder if we still see a light We was tight seeing lights Speaking right and breathing life
Now I see my demons and barely even sleep at night I don't get high, life keep me at a decent height
As the old me I predicted all my recent plights Exhausted trying to fall asleep, losses at my recent fights Burdens on my shoulders now, burnin' all my motives down Inspiration drying up, motivation slowing down
 Things are getting outta control Feels like I'm running out of soul
You are getting too heavy to hold Think I'll be letting you go
(Think I'll let you go)

I'm begging me don't let me go
We vow like the letter "O"
To never go our separate ways
And spin-off into separate shows Tired of all the wardrobe changin' Playing all these extra roles Filled with all these different spirits Livin' off these separate souls Point in life is getting hollow
Can't wait for the exit hole
Give me room, the entry room, let me in and let me go
So I can roam around this wilderness See it for what it really is
I'm prepared to filterless Magnify the youth in me, alibi the shootin' spree Amplify the revolution, sanitize the lunacy Strip away the justice, justify the scrutiny I can see the lasers shootin' out of you and me
 Things are getting outta control Feels like I'm running out of soul
You are getting too heavy to hold Think I'll be letting you go
(Think I'll be let you go)
 Sometimes I feel like the world Sometimes I feel like, the world is against me
And everything that I've done before I swear we used to be so pure
But we can't be in love no more Cause I don't wanna fight this war
But when I put down my gun
I turn around and pick up one
This uzi weighs a ton, but I think I'm done!
 Things are getting outta control Feels like I'm running out of soul
You are getting too heavy to hold Think I'll be letting you go
 Think I'll be letting you go Things are getting, getting outta control oh
Said it feels like I'm running out of soul
You're getting heavy to hold Think I'll be letting you go Letting you go
