Just Jared

from by The Crenshaw



Words don't mean what they mean
Can't tell me anything
Mother Nature's car alarm
I go off like a charm, pay attention to me


Loneliness is a key
I was exploited for free
But the effects were profoundly costly

My ex-friends couldn't know
I was surrounded by foes
Sabotaging my life invisibly

I could tell what's real
By the high that I'd feel
And my faith in common wisdom's failure

My receptors were primed
Was fucked up all the time
The world was dying, only I knew how to save her

I like my cage
I like my hierarchy
Ain't no one gonna take it away from me
I like my cage
