Solace
Earl Sweatshirt Lyrics


Late for everything, my face to the cement
That's how I always seen it
I spent days faded and anemic
You could see it in my face, I ain't been eatin', I'm just wastin' away
Looks like the way that River Phoenix went gon' end up my fate
And when they drag me out the gutter, mail the ashes to my mother
Twist the spliff if I don't finish my plate
Slip a fist up for my niggas in chains, my mental was caged
See I ain't been to prison but the feeling's the same
Shared sentiment, winnin' if the pen hit the page
As of late, I've been watchin' every bitch on MySpace
Shit's just lookin' different with age
Try to make some sense of all this shit in my brain
One foot stuck in a tar pit of my ways

It was like that the whole time, we'll be alright
Stay up all night, but it's alright
I done stayed up the whole night, but it's alright
It's me and my nibbling conscience
Nigga I'm fixin' to give up
I've been alone for the longest
It's trouble, the way that we're joggin'
Nothin' gon' save us or stop us
Me and my nibbling conscience
Nigga I'm fixin' to give up
I've been alone for the longest
This spliff, I ain't splittin' no time soon
My brain split in two, it's rainin' a bit
I hope it's a monsoon, my face in the sink
I'm seein' my mom soon, I'm faded, I stink
Stay in it...

I got my grandmama's hands, I start to cry when I see 'em
Cause they remind me of seein' her
These the times that I needed her most cause I feel defeated
And I buy nothin' by myself, my second thoughts, my hec...
My hands, I start to cry when I see 'em
Cause they remind me of seein' her
These the times that I needed her most cause I feel defeated
And I buy nothin' but myself, my second thoughts
My hectic process of thinkin'
And all my doubts and I think
I know Nak in there sleepin', he on the couch, that's my brother
Give me a boost when my confidence need it
So I love him, to tell the truth, I got a problem with eatin'
I be druggin', to tell the truth, I'm not supposed to be off in here
I'm supposed to be sleepin', but I be turnin' and tossin'
To tell the truth, I miss my partna dem
To tell the truth, you can't be loud when you're the wrongest, fam
To tell the truth, I'm at a loss of friends
Well time waits for no man and death waits with cold hands
I'm the youngest old man that you know
If ya soul intact, let me know

I've been to this song so many times, read these comments so many times but, I want to say my piece now, to the only place I think anyone will ever listen or care

I'm just sitting here in my room at midnight so pissed off with the world and with myself, I've never had any real friends, too fucking weird for the other kids in my school to talk to me

All I've ever wanted was to love someone and not feel empty and flat, to have someone care for me and to love me, to validate me and my feelings, to talk to someone about what I've struggled with, to feel loved and wanted, but everyone just doesn't care and doesn't look twice when they see me, I know they'd all claim to miss me when I finally give up.

The only reason I'm alive is because I'm too much of a pussy to do it

It's been so long, I figure if things haven't gotten better by now, they probably never will.

That's my fate
Just to live out life despite all this fucking constant pain and loneliness because I'm to much of a pussy to kill myself, just waiting to die.

I hate this world, all I ever wanted was just for someone to care about me. To feel the touch of another human being, to be loved

Fuck all of you cunts who didn't look twice because I wasn't "cool enough"

I don't know why I'm speaking as if you'd remember me

I just wish I knew what it was like to feel loved and cared about, and what it was like to feel love and to care about someone.

To everyone reading this: thank you, you've given so much attention and I'm really thankful for that, if you're on this song than I know things are also shit for you too, and I hope that things get better for you because I know you deserve it.

Don't end up like me, care for those around you, please.

I've been here before
I've been here before
I've been here before
I've been here before
I've been here before
I've been here before
I've been here before
I've been here before

Late for everything, my face to the cement
That's how I always seen it
I spent days faded and anemic
You could see it in my face, I ain't been eatin', I'm just wastin' away
Looks like the way that River Phoenix went gon' end up my fate
And when they drag me out the gutter, mail the ashes to my mother
Twist the spliff if I don't finish my plate
Slip a fist up for my niggas in chains, my mental was caged
See, I ain't been to prison but the feeling's the same
Shared sentiment, when and if the pen hit the page
As of late, I've been watchin' every bitch in my space
Shit's just lookin' different with age
Try to make some sense of all this shit in my brain
One foot stuck in a tar pit of my ways


[Part II]

[Intro]
And if it's like that the whole time
If it's like that the whole time, we'll be alright
And if it's like that the whole time, we'll be alright
Stayin' up all night, but it's alright
And I been stayin' up the whole night, but it's alright

[Verse]
It's me and my nibbling conscience
Nigga, I'm fixin' to give up
I've been alone for the longest
It's trouble, the way that we joggin'
Nothin' gon' save us or stop us
Me and my nibbling conscience
Nigga, I'm fixin' to give up
I've been alone for the longest
This spliff, I ain't splittin' no time soon
My brain split in two, it's rainin' a bit
I hope it's a monsoon, my face in the sink
I'm seein' my mom soon, I'm faded, I stink
Stay in it, alright..? (faded, I'm stayin' in...)

[Part III]

[Instrumental]

[Part IV]

[Verse]
I got my grandmama's hands, I start to cry when I see 'em
'Cause they remind me of seein' her
These the times that I needed her most 'cause I feel defeated
And I buy nothin' by myself, my second thoughts, my sec
(And I buy nothin' by myself)
My hands, I start to cry when I see 'em
'Cause they remind me of seein' her
These the times that I needed her most 'cause I feel defeated
And I buy nothin' but myself, my second thoughts
My hectic process of thinkin' and all my doubts, and I think
I know Nak in there sleepin', he on the couch, that's my brother
Give me a boost when my confidence need it, so I love him
To tell the truth, I got a problem with eatin', I be druggin'
To tell the truth, I'm not supposed to be off in here
I'm supposed to be sleepin', but I be turnin' and tossin'
To tell the truth, I miss my partna dem
To tell the truth, you can't be loud when you're the wrongest, fam
To tell the truth, I'm at a loss of friends
Well time waits for no man and death waits with cold hands
I'm the youngest old man that you know
If ya soul intact, let me know

When he said
"I got my grandmothers hands
I cry when I see them
Cause they remind me of seeing her
These the times I need her the most
Cause I feel defeated
And not by nothing
By myself
My second thoughts
My hectic
