Earl Sweatshirt Lyrics


My nigga
Keep faith

Peace to every crease on your brain
Peace too, came before me in your game
We givin' praise and glory to your name, kid
We cellophane your stories so it stays, since
Birth mama raised and birthed me I ain't changed
I'm a man, I'm just saying that I stayed imperfect
Earl is not my name, the world is my domain, kid
Air Max 97, traipse on the pavement
Hair got knotty, let it settle on my face, I
I've been eating good, you can see it in my tummy
But I'm buggin', I've been spending more money than I'm making
Stuck in Trump Land, watching subtlety decayin'
I ain't touch a xan, when it's-
When it's time to put my burnt body in the case
Tell my momma I said thank you
Tryna stay factual, tryna get through the day
I'ma play it back, I ain't in to showing face kid

It's been a minute since I heard applause
It's been a minute since you seen or heard from me, I've been swerving calls
It's been a minute since I heard applause

Sitting on a star, thinking how I'm not a star
I can't call the dogs
Sometimes I feel like I'm gonna call it off
I can't call the dog
Big dog, finna rip the collar off, uh
Sitting on a star, thinking how I'm not a star
I can't call the dogs (yo, yo, ayy)
Sitting on a star, thinking how I'm not a star
I just can't call the dogs (ayy)

Keep pace, my nigga (Eat paste my nigga)
Be safe, see safe, my nigga (be safe, see safe, my nigga)
Keep faith, my nigga, (yeah, yeah) ah
Me safe, she safe, keep peace, my nigga, ah
(Peace, peace, peace, peace, peace, peace)
(Sitting on a star, thinking how I'm not a star
(I just can't call the dogs)

My nigga
Keep faith—

Peace to every crease on your brain
Peace too, came before me in your game
We givin' praise and glory to your name, kid
We celebrate your stories or a states and
Bird mama raised and birthed me ain't changed
I'm a man, I'm just saying that I stayed imperfect
Earl is not my name, the world is domain, kid

Air Max 97 crepes on the pavement
Hey I got knocked teeth on the settle of my face
I've been eating good you can see it in my tummy
But I'm buggin', I've been spending more money than I'm making
Stuck in Trump Land, watching subtlety decayin'
I ain't touch a xan, when it's-
When it's time to put my burnt body in the case
Tell my momma I said thank you
Tryna stay factual, tryna get through the day
I'mma pay her back, I ain't in to showing face kid

It's been a minute since I heard applause
Its been a minute since you seen or
Heard from me I've been swerving calls
It's been a minute since I heard applause

Sittin' on a star, thinking how I'm not a star
I can't call her dog
Sometimes I feel like I'mma call it off
I can't call her dog
Big dog, finna rip the collar off, uh
Sittin' on a star, thinking how I'm not a star
I can't call her dog
Sittin' on a star, thinking how I'm not a star
Just couldn't call her dog, ayy

Keep pace, my nigga (Eat paste my nigga)
"Be safe" she said, my nigga
Keep faith, my nigga, ah
Me safe, she safe, keep peace, my nigga, ah
Peace, peace, peace, peace
(Sittin' on a star, thinking how I'm not a star
Just couldn't call her dog, ayy)

@Messer i see the pov

@Diego Celaya I've thought about this line a lot. On the surface it can mean any of these things, peace to every crease on your brain, like mind at ease, but it could also mean peace to every crease (crease as in blemish or issue you have. referring to mental health and other mental issues). It also has the getting older meaning too. I think it could also have a much darker meaning, as 'piece to every crease on your brain' either referring to killing somebody or killing yourself because piece is another word for a firearm- ie. putting a gun to your head or brain.
