Earl Sweatshirt - Shattered Dreams Lyrics




Imprecise words
Yeah, chief, get it 'cause we mean it
Ease up, free smokin’, niggas need it
Mask off, mask on, we trick-or-treatin'
Back off, stand-offish and anemic
Yeah, my nigga Ish, told him it's a feelin’
Blast off, buckshot into my ceilin'
Why ain't nobody tell me I was bleedin'?
Please, nobody pinch me out this dream

I said peace to my dirty water drinkers
Psh, nobody tryna get it clean
Why ain't nobody tell me I was sinkin'?
Ain't nobody tell me I could leave
Yeah, we'd win again, seethin’ within
Seen teeth on the floor, leakin’ again
We hold the door, uh
We build the bridge, we hold the courts
Send a cease and desist to your thieves, nigga
Please do abort, I could feel when you're forcin’ it
Still in a bore riddim
Boy, I take the tour chips and go and get some decent decor
Is you gon' ribbit or will you jump?
Get some more ribbons for the born winners from the jump
Niggas don't listen 'til that whole mission was a bust
No sit-up, but it’s crunch time, shootin' in the clutch
The midsummer sunshine found me on my ones, face drippin', uh
Hate swimmin' through your bloodlines
Motherfuck a judge, same goin' to the one time, yeah
Come and take a stroll in the mud
Dip a toe in it, heard the hammer like a grudge
When you holdin' it close, we was on the cusp
It was holes in the boat, we ain't make a fuss
Uh, chosen

Imprecise words
Yeah, chief, get it 'cause we mean it
Ease up, free smokin', niggas need it
Mask off, mask on, we trick-or-treatin'
Back off, stand-offish and anemic
Yeah, my nigga Ish, told him it's a feelin'
Blast off, buckshot into my ceilin'
Why ain't nobody tell me I was bleedin'?
Please, nobody pinch me out this dream

  1. Josh B

    Bro this is exactly how being an alcoholic feels. Like that short lived DREEAAAM to bring you up but the overtone of his depressing raps. Like fuck alcoholism dude. Shits whack.

    Thank you....ya boy Tyler on some weird shit

  86. brob

    Buckshot into my cEIlin

  87. Justin Bechmann

    I’ve been an Earl fan before he blew up, no I’m not hipster, but this album was long awaited and it fell short. Still love dude’s music. But damn..

    Roc Cygnus

    Damn I actually really like this album. It took a couple of listens but it clicked. Sad that he never got to show this album to his father like he wanted to

    Renecide

    Justin Bechmann Felt the same way when I first gave it a listen, thought its one of the worst albums I had ever heard. Second rotation had me addicted, then eventually it became one of my fav albums ever. Music is crazy like that, but I guess you got to be in the mood for it

  88. Carson Hagler

    Never rlly listened to this guy, starting to like him a bit more now ( dont rlly like this song tho tbh)

  89. Quinn

    imprecise words

  90. Four Zero
