Woke up in the cell, where am I at? Yeah, it’s cold, but I like that What, am I trapped? Heart’s beating out of my chest Door’s locked, but the keys are in my hands Hm, yeah, that’s weird, it doesn’t make sense, does it? I make songs, I don’t make friends, judge me Might smile, but it ain’t that funny Sing along to the pain, they love it Life’s like a merry-go-round And I’m still tryna figure it out I like space I don’t fit in the crowds My whole life I’ve been airin’ it out Oh, I’m gettin’ into character now Feels wrong, but it feels right My feelings seal tight real nice But I will fight anything to win But I’m not Mike Tyson, I won’t bite ya’ But I will tell you if I don’t like you I am not the norm I got my own shoes, I ain’t tryna fit in yours I never been married, but I’ve felt divorced Hi, I’m Nate, have we met before Somebody told you I was wack? Check the source Somebody told you I was back? Yes, of course You got a problem with the fans? There’s the door You lookin’ for the old me? Check the morgue, ah! Not a fortune-teller, but I can see into the future better Ain’t no tellin’ what’ll happen when I pick up the microphone, get the fans together Same style, but the songs are better Been a year and a half, feels like it’s gone forever Ain’t no drink in my hand, but you know the buzz is comin’ Big steps in the game, yeah, the Hulk is running My thoughts are funny, it feels like I’m on to something, yeah I’m high off the music, my head’s in the clouds I kinda like it up here, I’m not comin’ down I’d rather be alone, I am not good in crowds Which is kinda confusin’, I’ve not been that way since I was a child They laughin’, they tell me I’ll never get out I’m just tryna be me, I am nobody else I don’t care what you think, I’m just bein’ myself So I guess for now I’ll just be the outcast I’ll just be the outcast I’ll just be the outcast I guess I’ll be the outcast Yeah, I guess I don’t fit the mold of rap ‘Cause I’m respectin’ women “I heard your record, I was laughin at it” Maybe they would like me more if I got a little graphic with it Nah, I don’t wanna blend in with you little rappin’ idiots, I’d rather be the outcast I ain’t never puttin’ out trash I take a hundred and staple it right to my tongue I always put the money where my mouth’s at, ah! Feels good to be here now I’m a weird person with a weird crowd What, you don’t like that? That’s cool, that’s great, that’s fine, okay, you can leave now Got a weird smile, but I like it though I paint it on me and I’m walkin’ to the microphone And put the caution tape around me like I did in Intro I, yeah! Yeah, they got me reminiscin’ now! You done know I’m ’bout to go mad Never wanted something so bad Goosebumps through the whole track Ain’t no way I’m gonna hold back Got me thinkin’ that I’m cookin’ in a meth lab I don’t blow it up in front of my own eyes You look a little lost, you ain’t get that? Comin’ from a town where nobody hears a rap like this I never get the memo, must’ve missed that Wow! Here I go in my feelings again, I can feel it again So I lay in my bed, in my cell with the pen And I dwell on my sins, I keep wonderin’ when Time to open the the doors, they don’t know who I am But I pick up the keys and I put on my Timbs And I stare at the locks and the tat on my skin And I think to myself, “I don’t wanna fit in” I’m high off the music, my head’s in the clouds I kinda like it up here, I’m not comin’ down I’d rather be alone, I am not good in crowds Which is kinda confusin’, I’ve not been that way since I was a child They laughin’, they tell me I’ll never get out I’m just tryna be me, I am nobody else I don’t care what you think, I’m just bein’ myself So I guess for now Yeah, I’ll just be the outcast I’ll just be the outcast I’ll just be the outcast I guess I’ll be the outcast Yeah, tryna focus Take a knife to my head then I cut it open Take my brain, put it on the floor tryna figure out my motives Y’all thought I was an issue when the door was locked Nah, you should see me when the door opens Every night I can hear voices Put a camera in my face, might turn Joker like I’m Mike Posner Always been a little complex Difficult to process Some of y’all wanna sit around and try to pick apart my bars Here’s some lines you could dissect: If I’ma die, I’ma die givin’ everything that I have Take a deep breath, I don’t need y’all’s respect I’m a reject kid at recess playin’ games with his make-believe friends Yeah, I don’t ever take a night off Lights off in the room and I write songs I might fall into my thoughts once in a while when the mic’s off You ain’t ever seen no drive like mine, better hop outta my car I’m about to unlock my doors You ain’t got a seat belt on, better find one Gettin’ sick of people tellin’ me to smile more T.S. was a chapter I’ll never forget, it was therapy for me But it’s time to turn the page now Hey, shut up! I’m tryna tell ’em my story! I’m sorry, I wasn’t yellin’ at y’all, I was talkin’ to the voices I rip out the drums of the industry’s ears for tryin’ to ignore me and playin’ while singin’ this chorus I’ll just be the outcast I’ll just be the outcast I’ll just be the outcast I guess I’ll be the outcast I’ll just be the outcast I’ll just be the outcast I’ll just be the outcast I guess I’ll be the outcast
