Lyrics The Ballad of G and X – grandson

I talk to X he tell me that he’s always watching
He put a hex up on my soul to keep me locked in
I keep on looking at world like I’m an optimist
He says, we can’t go back there ain’t no way of stopping this

I say the truth will always make it through the winter
He tells me history is written by the victor
It’s poison, yeahhh poison

I wanna live for something
I wanna die for something
He makes me cry for nothing
Says that I’m a dime a dozen
I wanna write the song
To help you start the revolution
He wanna see you next to me
In public execution
Poison, yeahhh poison

And I watch these birds fly
And I cry why can’t I why can’t I
And I watch these birds fly
And I cry why can’t I why can’t I

I wanna be the change
I try to make my feelings vocal
He’s in my head he makes me sick
He makes me antisocial
I try to do my part
I vote I sign all the petitions
He tells that there ain’t no way
That imma make a difference

Losing my mind I wanna find a way
To keep composure
He gets me high he tell me lies
I think he’s taking over
I try to close my eyes
I’m haunted in my nightmares
I’m quite scared
I look to the left and I find him right there
It’s poison, yeahhh poison

And I watch these birds fly
And I cry why can’t I why can’t I
And I watch these birds fly
And I cry why can’t I why can’t I…
