Six Feet

hey

I’m feeling 6 feet tall, ten feet off the ground
16 in all, I’m so fucking proud
and I’m still growing every day
ill float away one of these days
bet I’m gonna float on up to space

i mix my drinks with fruit punch-lines, I’m lyrical
ill be pulling glocks on motherfuckers, mines a glockenspiel
and when they said i wouldn’t make it by the skin of my teeth
my teeth had not even begun to feel
so now I’m grabbing the mic, I’m not done yet
this is it, this is where we go
never was the biggest guy, but i digress
everything we do is gold
i know I’m not great, got a head full of gases
but ill never be opaque, I’m as clear as my glasses

so you can call me so gay when i bike past
but i don’t wear a helmet on my life’s bike path
imma pedal hard, I’m living my life fast
so when i get old, never gonna need a bypass
i press go, never back, lemme go, i been packed
in the rat race, i don’t pull a bad face though
ill attack all the shit holding me back
and when i make it imma have a heart attack

everybody in the room look at me, I’m feeling 6 feet
gotta be a better way to live, in the dawn we found it, tasting so sweet
passing all my classes like I’m fastest to the basket
but instead of scoring i take all the glory and i pass it
life’s about the team work
friends who never back down
when i make it my friends won’t be faded to the background
better bet we’re seizing the moment
we’ll make it, we’re magic, the way of the world is succeed or be tragic
when I’m in here we’re going batshit
and now the world is gonna know

I’m feeling 6 feet tall, 10 feet off the ground
16 in all, I’m so fucking proud
and I’m still growing every day
ill float away one of these days
bet I’m gonna float on up to space

[AND THEY SAY WHITE KIDS CAN'T RAP]
and yeah, baby i may be a white kid
but you know i dance pretty pretty like this
my roommate showed me all the moves,
I’m getting my groove on
[MOVES: ON.]
so move on, and Move Along

i was just a dreamer, i was told to back down
first time that i seen her i was just like damn, wow
that girl is the dream and well i guess she felt the same
cause now I’m leaving my metropolis to hop up on a plane
I’m just a fool and I’m in love
and thats a blessed combination
the way she fits me like a glove
though she’s so high above my station

see she’s got these eyes that don’t let go
now I’m addicted to the flow
of every stanza of her breath
and every finger painted note
the way we lie, the way we speak
the way we’re not alone
and every day I’m falling deeper don’t you know

I’m feeling 6 feet tall, 10 feet off the ground
16 in all, I’m so fucking proud
and I’m still growing every day
ill float away one of these days
bet I’m gonna float on up to space

man you should know i spent my youth up in detention
and i guess i shouldn’t mention
that but (aw, fuck it) fuck it i don’t give a damn
cause who i was is over and i don’t let that define me
and now I’m feeling finer than those teeny tiny sharpies
like this is me
all my moving parts and all my history
all my broken hearts and broken bones
I’m claiming victory
the road has been long, and i got further to go
but the rest is for tomorrow you know, cause right now

I’m feeling 6 feet tall, 10 feet off the ground
16 in all, I’m so fucking proud
and I’m still growing every day
ill float away one of these days
bet I’m gonna float on up to space
