lyrics

There's a guy smoking crack on my front step
Talking trash to the people on the sidewalk
I don't wanna look him in the eye
If I do he might wanna talk to me

I try to walk by fast but I can't
Cause I gotta lock the door so he can't get in
Got my keys stuck steppin on my shoelace
Reppin for the klutz club once again

I don't wanna be a bad guy
Make me kinda mad why
I don't know

When you say those mean things
I know that you're speaking to the voices inside

I won't talk to you when you get like this
I won't talk to you when you get like this
It's the tone you take and the face you make
When you ask me what I got

Nothing, nothing, nothing, nothing,
No I got nothing, nothing,
Nothing for you

I think I'm gonna clap hands in the street
With a man I don't even know
I need reminding this heat
Can make criminals of us all

Don't let me catch you crying
Do that ish in private
But you got no place to go
So you're here outside my home
Sitting all alone
I wanna let you know

I don't wanna be a bad guy
Make me kinda mad why
I don't know

When you say those mean things
I know that you're speaking to the voices inside

I won't talk to you when you get like this
I won't talk to you when you get like this
It's the tone you take and the face you make
When you ask me what I got

Nothing, nothing, nothing, nothing,
No I got nothing, nothing,
Nothing for you

Hey hello stop
What you doin on my block
Got a hundred million questions
But I'm too afraid to talk
There ya, there ya go, stop pullin on my heartstring
Wait thirty seconds and you tell me I'm the worst thing
Take your time, just take, take,
Say what you need to say
Cause I've been waitin for this moment,
Happens every day
You tell me, don't ask me, you want it,
I won't talk to you when you get like this
no, no, no (I can't, I won't, I can't, no no)
I won't talk to you when you get like this

And every breath wasted
Throw it out the door
But you keep comin back
Secret's out
I want more

I won't talk to you
You're so reckless, makin messes
Don't you get this?
Trouble pile up, down river runnin gutter through
Holes in the soles of my shoes
Think I choose to live with shivers in my ribs?

Will you forgive me? (I can't, I won't)
Just trynna get high, just trynna get by
All the way up
Livin in a nightmare, under lead skies
Static in my mind
This chapter, noise chatter
A dollar I'm after
I tried
Don't we all trust the voices inside?

I won't talk to you when you get like this
(I won't talk to you when you get like this)
I won't talk to you when you get like this
(I won't talk to you when you get like this)
It's the tone you take and the face you make
When you ask me what I got

Nothing, nothing, nothing, nothing,
No I got nothing, nothing,
Nothing for you
