Earl Sweatshirt – Old Friend Lyrics

Old Friend – Earl Sweatshirt

Strong spirit where the body couldn’t get asylum
The cost of living high, don’t cross the picket line and get the virus
Wild cat has got ’em in a bind, stay inside
Know I came from out the thicket smilin’
Mad hatters cappin’ every line, it doesn’t matter to the ten of five
They start hackin’ when they can’t shrink us
I found the middle in a bit of balance
Fever in the cabin
I knew where we was headed
I ain’t countin’ no blessings, I sure as shit could measure
Blinkin’ for some feasible methods to free yourself
Split it with my hand like Cigarills
Slick oil in a fish gill
I fill a void with the pen, feel the fear, shrill
Couple stains that I couldn’t shill
My brother brain that we couldn’t shield
Couple came, couple wins still
And what remain of the wolves meal
I held the page, gave the book ears
Whispered “Thanks” hella pain, heavy brain in the catskills
Played the shade, quite a deal, glad we stayed friends
