OP $av. - I'm Runnin' (produced by Melomind)

After feeling trapped in the Midwest, NSNE attempts to run from his troubles. Collecting his thoughts and taking stock of blessings, he finds a balance between caring for himself while still caring about changing the world at large.

I’m Runnin – 

 

 

NSNE: 

I find peace in the road 

 

Tryna run away 

No longer satisfied with the life I'm living today 

I need to change my ways 

Nothing left to say 

I just can't wrap my head around  

This town 

I need a change of pace 

I'm running away 

 

I been workin 

On beats on fleek on my words spit heat 

That's perfect 

Skip school all week get drunk repeat 

But it's worth it 

See me gold teeth on BET 

Quit lurkin 

I know da haters here but they just tryna leech 

On the way up 

Top floor 

Gotta pay up 

10 more 

Know we stay up 

Ten Whores 

So wake up 

No one knows what a life like this could do to a man till they're on the treadmill running fast as they can, damn 

Ain't mean no disrespect but it's time to move on cause I'm up next 

Girls act like they love you but they really don't 

Friends'll say they be there but they really won't 

People all around us fake and they can't wait to seal our fate and take our place 

Use us like a stepping stone 

ain't average so I'm cruising on another level 

Unleash the devil when I mix the bass under the treble 

Not a rebel I just need to get away 

Cause if I give up 

I'll be just a cliché 

 

Tryna run away 

No longer satisfied with the life I'm living today 

I need to change my ways 

Nothing left to say 

I just can't wrap my head around  

This town 

I need a change of pace 

I'm running away 

 

I been walking again 

Not Pokemon Going anywhere 

But the terrors in my head keep talking again 

Know I can't help talking with them 

Life of monsters or men 

Say the system is corrupt everyone's giving up 

Call to fight or the world gonna end 

Build walls put ourselves in a pen 

What then 

Leave the killing to police cause they do it well 

Take the job too far send us all to hell 

Take a black man’s life while he's screaming help 

Get home see the roots prostitute themselves 

All about the wealth 

Really nothing else 

The PD set the quota on a high shelf 

What to expect when say all y'all matter 

But blue lives have white lies 

To hide from disaster 

There's blood in the streets 

See blood on repeat 

Put blood on the beat 

Just trying to eat 

Now who is the filth 

Cause I'm just as bad if I profit from guilt 

So next is the fear 

They be tryna make me chose but the choice isn't clear 

Both cultivate fear 

From Islam to borders indictment this year 

The Bern disappeared 

We the leaders of our own social justice 

We the seeders and the slaves no muskets 

We the closest to the edge don't shove us 

We the product of a state that don't love us 

I'm high as the stakes 

I'm the black bill gates 

Fuck Windows 95 tryna stop drive bys 

By police or my niggas we all need to stay alive
