Although it's just a preview, this track details my first encounter with infatuation, and the abstract conventions of love. Based on a true story.


Love’s Grasp
They say played cards right ain't hard, try it
Although it ain't alright for laid hearts tied to the table, ok?
That's fatal, they make you pay,
And since this is senseless, it's best to come to our senses
Or they'll regret it because it's better to never love
Than to ever love in lost Ms.
Just promise you'll never fall in love
All it was? Was wanting too bad what you had,
But they won’t want you back...
Verse 1
I had a crush once, my bad, but just once
Was I jabbed, sucker punched by a tad of what love does
I’m snagged up because I had the one brush
Amongst the wondrous, now that I’m stabbed, the blood runs
Out my back because some fucks might blab of dumb fucks
Such as us, brains stuffed, mashed, mush, Pain, but half hushed
What you heard is the sound of my word
After word gets around turning it down
By the time I’ve reached you, who’s concerned with it now?
I am…I am…I am…
Yeah, but who the hell am I?
Bad ass attitude, but frail inside
Binded in a spell and blinded
Can’t look anyone else in my eyes as if
You could tell that I’ve –
Just fell a flight of stairs into love’s grasp…love’s grasp
I just fell a flight of stairs into love’s grasp…
Just fell a flight of stairs into love’s grasp…love’s grasp
I just fell a flight of stairs into love’s grasp…
Verse 2
But tell me who cares if you’re crush crashed
Your joy ride? I’m so dumb, I’m no one
Avoid my hurt face, erase her gaze for all of your days
I’m a sucker, why?
Because I never make it to first base in the first place and you weren’t phased
Where the hell do we got to head from here?
There some telling me not to shed a tear
To act like I’m good shit…
And I should get over it
Blood could get colder with broken heart, certainly
Open on surgery, oh, an emergency?
Will she heal me from what I’ve been feeling?
It’s silly really so we’ll be stupid, huh?
That’s my two cents up cash
Being a nuisance sucks ass
The little things will be doing for love such as when I must have –
Verse 3
Men are meant to grow colder
With a cold shoulder
And recently insides been eating me alive
With confusion, disillusion
It’s best when midsections intestines in question
To yield then, go with your gut feeling
Pain, everyone deals with differently
But healing just isn’t for me
Some reel in fish in the sea
But I’m still been wishing to keep one
Until then, bit and release
I’ve still been getting to see
Without a fuck and a care
Abandoning the love in the air
Bad lungs expanding, for once I can see this can’t mean a damn thing
If we were before, we ain’t anymore
The truth is a hard pill to swallow, so I take placebos
But now, I can’t say anymore, because I –
