Grief
Earl Sweatshirt Lyrics


Alright
Uh, uh, uh

Good grief, I been reaping what I sow
Nigga, I ain't been outside in a minute
I been living what I wrote
And all I see is snakes in the eyes of these niggas
Momma taught me how to read 'em when I look
Miss me at the precinct getting booked
Fishy niggas stick to eating off of hooks
Say you eating, but we see you getting cooked, nigga

I don't act hard, I'm a hard act to follow, nigga
Like it or not, when it drop, bet he gotta listen
Chasing dragons, tryna make it happen, on a mission
Step into the shadows, we could talk addiction
When it's harmful where you going and the part of you that know it
Don't give a fuck, pardon me for going into details
3-7-6 was a brothel
We had females come in every hour on the dot
And the shit sound like a gavel when it knock
Focus on my chatter, ain't as frantic as my thoughts
Lately I've been panicking a lot
Feeling like I'm stranded in a mob
Scrambling for Xanax out the canister to pop
Never getting out of hand, steady handling my job
Time damaging my ties
Who turn to get up? Get dude turned to dinner quick
You circus niggas, you turning into tricks
I was making waves, you was surfing in 'em
Dealing with the stomach pains just from birthing niggas' shit
Cut the grass off the surface
Pray the lawnmower blade catch the back of a serpent, nigga, shit
Bitch

Good grief, I been reaping what I sow
Nigga, I ain't been outside in a minute
I been living what I wrote
And all I see is snakes in the eyes of these niggas
Momma taught me how to read 'em when I look
Miss me at the precinct getting booked
Fishy niggas stick to eating off of hooks
Say you eating, but we see you getting cooked, nigga

I'm fleeting thoughts on a leash
For the moment, high as fuck
I've been alone in my shit for the longest
Snakes sliding in the street
Mama taught me how to not be like the bodies lying in them
Pigs, riding in 'em
I'm a target so it's hard to even eye me in 'em
If he ain't dying for me, then I ain't riding with him
There's no time for that
Making sure my man wallet's straight like a collar
When you iron that
Thinking 'bout my grandmama, find a bottle
I'mma wallow when I lie in that
I just want my time and my mind intact
When they both gone, you can't buy 'em back

So this is what happens when you let children be free. I'm 41 and this is giving me such life right now. THIS is real art. Earl is like a hip hop super hero. WOWZERS!! Young King is BRILLIANT!

@MyNameIsJeff being woke and depressed is honestly better, regardless of how shit you feel, you’ll still have the closure to know that you’re staying integral to yourself and your situation.

Being asleep and happy sounds good, but that feeling when your illusion of happiness gets burst by a cold blunt truth is awful, it’ll feel like your whole world is falling apart and you, in-turn start questioning/doubting everything about yourself. Worst part is, it becomes your autopilot to keep yourself illusioned so these experiences can happen frequently and you’ll feel powerless and clueless everytime they come. It’s hell.

@Joshua Donald why and how he weak ? And if so let him be fuck it go be strong then

@MyNameIsJeff pros and cons to both. It would be better if we could get the world to a state where we don't need ignorance to be happy, but that's what perspective or appreciating aspects/moments of life instead of the full picture is for. Bad also has a purpose, it makes you appreciate the good.

It can be good to shut off the mind and enjoy the moment, but it is also good to be aware of the things that need work in the world. Until then, there's escapism.
