Dreams in a Basement
Skyzoo Lyrics


It's quiet here, yeah, I like to come here
It's lonesome, you know what's whack?
When I'm down with the posse or at home and shit
And everybody be screaming and yelling and shit
It gets real lonesome

It be like crowded and noise and screaming
And suddenly it feels like I'm the only one there
The more people there is, the lonelier it get
I have this dream, yeah, like what?
Nothing, sometimes I have it, that's all

Celebrating the win, celebrate what it meant
Do remember and celebrate it again
Right, newly winners, we celebrate where it went
And sewn different, we celebrating the hem
Right, you sing along you celebrating the hymn
Bet 'em to prove me wrong you'll be celebrating their end

Tell 'em it's crew first, we celebrating with kin
And fuck an E for effort, don't celebrate the attempt
My attempt be, everything the rent be
Call it hand in hand but a hand can't be empty
So I was in the basement sparring wit complacency

And my weaving got me off when it would tempt me
Sofa beds and dealing wit being better than all that you listen to
And feeling like it's whatever as long as it get to you
For the nod and the doze and the open yawn
Shit is beyond what they hope, tell 'em no regards

Sometimes, I wonder will I ever sleep the same
'Cause I, I let these dreams keep me awake
Said I need more, I just need more
'Cause I need more, said I need more so I dream

For all the Grand Aves, all the Merrick and Lindens
All the Fulton streets, forever we did it
May we never forget it, nor what it took to be it
And for the taking when we take it like it took repeating

They took to me and I took em home
I shouldered all of it, brave enough to look alone
Looking thru blinds tryin' to look for time, counting to hook a line
Tryin' to serve what you deserve but still cooking mine

Pint of Hennessy, tryin' to write a memory
Live it and forget it like tonight was like the end of me
Right, in a basement loaded with ambition
Smothered by it they wanna eye it but can't listen

Sleeping wit the cousin of sleep and her hands vivid
Turn for the win but most of em can't pivot
For the nod and the doze and the open yawn
Shit is beyond what they hope, tell em no regards

Sometimes, I wonder will I ever sleep the same
'Cause I, I let these dreams keep me awake
Said I need more, I just need more
'Cause I need more, said I need more so I dream

For the sleepers and for the dreamers
For the awake and everything that's between 'em
For the awake and everything they believe in
And when believing ain't enough, I be up
I be up on the other side where the others tried
For the other ride or otherwise

Otherwise I'll be sleeping here with y'all
But dreaming ain't enough so if sleeping is involved
I'll be up on the other side where the others tried
For the other ride, otherwise, dreaming ain't enough so I'll be up
