I need love You need love Give me love And I'll give you my love They say thirty is the new twenty And twenty is the new thirty shit I guess Makes sense, cause fifteen year olds seem twenty And twenty five year olds seem ten I used to drink away my paycheck Celebrate the mistakes I hadn't made yet Our generation isn't the best on safe sex We forget the latex, becoming Planned Parenthood patients Synthetic heroin is the new basshead So much to escape, f*ck a straight edge Walk around looking through a fake lens Apps this good, whose got time to make friends? I wish I didn't care Acynical hispters with long hair Cocaine problems, like my music It's not my issue, I can't solve it My flight has finally landed down And the ground has stopped moving all around Eyes open, awake for the very first time We both forfeit this game of crime They say it's so refreshing to hear somebody on records No guns, no drugs, no sex, just truth The guns that's America, the drugs are what they gave to us And sex sells itself, don't judge her 'til it's you Ah, I'm not more or less cautious The rappers rappin' 'bout them strippers up on the pole, copping These interviews are obnoxious Saying that it's poetry is so well spoken, stop it I grew up during Reaganomics When Ice T was out there on his killing cops shit Or Rodney King was getting beat on And they let off every single officer And Los Angeles went and lost it Now every month there is a new Rodney on Youtube It's just something our generation is used to And neighbourhoods where you never see a news crew Unless they're gentrifying, white people don't even cruise through And my subconscious telling me stop it This is an issue that you shouldn't get involved in Don't even tweet, R.I.P Trayvon Martin Don't wanna be that white dude, million man marchin' Fighting for our freedom that my people stole Don't wanna make all my white fans uncomfortable But you don't even have a fuckin' song for radio Why you out here talkin race, tryin' to save the fuckin' globe Don't get involved with the causes in mind White privilege, white guilt, at the same damn time So we just party like it's nineteen ninty nine Celebrate the ignorance while these kids keep dying My flight has finally landed down And the ground has stopped moving all around Eyes open, awake for the very first time We both forfeit this game of crime I need love You need love Give me love And I'll give you my love
