    BEFORE I WAS BORN

    We go back like umbilical cords
    From my first words
    Like teenage whores who are afraid of rejection
    From my first hug, from the sky for heaven’s inspection

    We go way back

    We go back like pistol whippens and black freedom
    Like mama’s abusing their kids cause they don’t need em’
    Like soul washing in the rain from tear stains on freedom trains
    You want to watch me from the sun to boil my pain

    We go way back cause my birth was a curse to your plans
    Like juveniles blowing in broken fans
    I ****** up your rhythm of life

    You weighed your failures on my reflection
    So you took every corner of my smile
    And played back alley dice with em’, hoping I ‘d fail

    We go way back like when Jesus wept
    You saw his footsteps as he carried my future plans
    So you drew my outline in chalk
    Hoping that’s where I’d land
    Dead to the dreams I was born to have

    And I know you want to go back to when you were a virgin again
    When you didn’t have me in your womb
    And your options for life felt free again
    Before the creator chose you to lead me
    Into the wishes you mourn because I succeeded

    But I just wanna go back to the day
    Before I was born into your hands
    That way you could never leave me without circumstance
