Icarus
by Bas

Since I let go of you and I
Lately I've been feelin' too alive
Flyin' too close to the sun, yeah
Flyin' too close to the sun, yeah

Oh yeah
Trees that grew between us
Tears we drew between us
Years have blew between us just to throw away
Might've lost our glory
But I love our story
Yeah, I lock the door just to store away

They say love don't cost a thing
Yeah right, that's a underbid
They say love don't cost a thing
Oh yeah right, that's a underbid
That's a underbid
That's a underbid
They say love don't cost a thing

And you know they be lying like Kellyanne Conway
I just get my thoughts off, I just take the top off
When the culture bubble, we come from the back block
So they call us trouble, we can never slouch nor stop off
Weekend on the couch with the socks off
Nah, we can make it count, run the clock off
We can count lives on the block lost
Cautionary tape, that we can never block off
All I see is hate, how many memories can a million make?
Opinionated, young nigga seen the whole world with my own two
What they gon' do with this young nigga?
Whole squad workin' on the same page like we one, nigga
Like we one
I can't get jiggy with you clowns
I'm busy I've been giving New York City a whole new sound
Who really gon' hold this down? Who? Me, funny
I catch niggas gettin' sour when I do me
I still wish them niggas more than they do me
Gotta live up to the blessings of my Umi
Bring myself, couple steps closer to my God above
Never read The Art of War, but it's hard to love
Never know when you go rollercoaster
All your highs got a low, rollercoaster
Bring myself, couple steps closer to my God above
Never read The Art of War, but I could write The Art of Love

Oh yeah
Trees that grew between us
Tears we drew between us
Years have blew between us just to throw away
Might've lost our glory
But I love our story
Yeah, I lock the door just to store away

The inner me is telling me I gotta pace it
The winner in me telling I got a bottle of Ace
Cole gave me at the Garden from the case Hov sent him
Looked 'em in the face
Told 'em I can't pop it 'til I sell it out on my occasion
Bold claim, told my momma I'd be back and I make it, both came true
Thought I was escaping, just to find myself right back in the Matrix, both pills blue
I thought I'd be fulfilled
I came from not a dollar in my momma basement
I came from bagging product in my momma basement
Almost caught some shells tryna bust a couple sells
They went and caught a coller in my momma basement
I've been tryna keep her proud since, nigga way back
Got some niggas, keep me grounded, that's some way back
But I gotta take flights sometimes
These are fighting times, I'm my only opponent
Some days I'm betraying my holiest moments
I don't know who could control 'em
I don't know who could control 'em
I ain't living for me, I'm the youngest of five
And if I don't survive, I don't know who could console 'em
I don't know who could console 'em

Since I let go of you and I
Lately I've been feelin' too alive
