[185 - Hook]

Down and down we go
Down and down we go
But I refuse, no

Feels like I'm dreamin
I'm walkin but sleepin
They're calling my name
But I'm not hearin

[Ess Vee - Verse 1]

I close my eyes and fall victim between two different rhythms
The rhythm of reality ripples while I'm laying fickle
I grab the sickle and plant my dreams and just let it trickle
Down to the middle of this riddle after feeling crippled
By the thought of waking up yeah I'm shaken up
I tried to make that call while I'm dreaming but see it's breakin up
Cuz I rather stay in a place where I'm feeling great
And in that state paralysis is my only escape
I'm breathing heavy, I break the levy
Now my thoughts are rushin in
My punctured skin is bruised from being pinched you ready?
I wasn't I'm frontin I'm Cobb I couldn't tell the difference
If I knew my way through reality I would seal the entrance

[185 - Hook]

[Ess Vee - Verse 2]

Is this lucid the fluid from my forehead is freezing
I'm feeling stupid cuz I'm sleepin and I haven't a reason
I'm bleeding my thoughts on records feeling like a narcoleptic
Insomnia on to ya callin ya, you gotta accept it
I refuse to respect it the fact that ppl are chasing
This ain't no race and I'm just stating you can go live it no waiting
See reality's hating my morality's fadin
You can blame it on satan rather blame it on patience
It's a constant battle when they babble about making it
They better learn to grapple cuz these shackles yeah I'm breakin it
And yeah I'm takin it soon as I take it down
I'm closing my eyes I'm vibin out to that sound

[185 - Hook]

[185 - Bridge]

This is me
And I'm not changing for nobody
We will see
The reason that they can't stop me

Oh dreamer oh dreamer of me
They'll see where I wanna be
I close my eyes and I speak
This won't be the last of me
