Lyrics

play i'm friends with the monster
play That's under my bed
play get along with the voices inside of my head
play You're trying to save me
play Stop holding your breath
play And you think I'm crazy
play Yeah, you think I'm crazy (crazy)

play I wanted the fame, but not the cover of newsweek
play Oh well, guess beggars can't be choosy
play Wanted to receive attention for my music
play Wanted to be left alone in public excuse me
play Been wanting my cake, And eat it too
play And wanting it both ways
play Fame made me a balloon cause my ego inflated
play When I blew seep and it was confusing
play Cause all I wanted to do
play is be the bruce lee of loose leaf
play Abused ink, used it as a tool when I blew steam
play Hit the lottery (oh wee)
play With what I gave up to get was bittersweet
play It was like winning a huge meet
play Ironic 'cause I think
play I'm getting so huge I need a shrink
play I'm beginning to lose sleep: one sheep, two sheep
play Going cuckoo and cookey as Kool Keith
play But I'm actually weirder than you think
play Cause I'm...

play I'm friends with the monster
play That's under my bed
play Get along with the voices inside of my head
play You're trying to save me
play Stop holding your breath
play And you think I'm crazy
play Yeah, you think I'm crazy

play Well, that's nothing
play oh oh oh oh
play Well, that's nothing
play oh oh oh oh

play Now I ain't much of a poet
play But I know somebody once told me
play to seize the moment
play And don't squander it
play Cause you never know when it could all be over
play Tomorrow so I keep conjuring
play Sometimes I wonder where
play these thoughts spawn from
play (Yeah, ponder it, do you want this?
play there's no wonder you're losing your mind
play the way you're wandering?)
play I think you've been wandering off down yonder
play and stumbled onto Jeff VanVonderen
play Cause I needed an interventionist
play to intervene between me and this monster
play And save me from myself and all this conflict
play Cause the very thing that I love is killing me
play and I can't conquer it
play My OCD is conking me in the head
play Keep knocking, nobody's home,
play I'm sleepwalking
play I'm just relaying what the voice in my head saying
play Don't shoot the messenger,
play I'm just friends with the...

play I'm friends with the monster
play That's under my bed
play Get along with the voices inside of my head
play You're trying to save me
play Stop holding your breath
play And you think I'm crazy
play Yeah, you think I'm crazy

play Well, that's nothing
play oh oh oh oh
play Well, that's nothing
play oh oh oh oh

play Call me crazy, but I had this vision
play One day that,
play I'd walk amongst you a regular civilian
play But, until then,
play drums get killed and I'm Coming straight at
play Emcees, blood get spilled and I
play Take it back to the days that, I get on a Dre track
play Give every kid who got played at
play Pumped the feeling
play and shit to say back
play To the kids who played 'em
play I ain't here to save the fucking children
play But if one kid out of a hundred million
play Who are going through a struggle feels
play and it relates that's great
play It's payback, Russell Wilson falling way back
play In the draft, turn nothing into something still,
play can make that
play Straw in the gold chump I will spend
play Rumpelstiltskin in a hay stack
play Maybe I need a straightjacket, face facts
play I am nuts for real, but I'm okay with that
play It's nothing, I'm still friends with the...

play I'm friends with the monster
play That's under my bed
play Get along with the voices inside of my head
play You're trying to save me
play Stop holding your breath
play And you think I'm crazy
play Yeah, you think I'm crazy

play I'm friends with the monster
play That's under my bed
play (Get along with)
play Get along with the voices inside of my head
play (You're tryna)
play You're trying to save me
play Stop holding your breath
play And you think I'm crazy
play Yeah, you think I'm crazy

play Well, that's nothing
