NF – Outcast

[Verse 2]
Wow!
So I lay in my bed, in my cell with the pen

I am not the norm
I always put the money where my mouth’s at, ah!
Here’s some lines you could dissect:
My feelings seal tight real nice
I guess I’ll be the outcast
And put the caution tape around me like I did in Intro I, yeah!
Gettin’ sick of people tellin’ me to smile more
So I guess for now
Yeah, they got me reminiscin’ now!

I’ll just be the outcast
Here I go in my feelings again, I can feel it again
Some of y’all wanna sit around and try to pick apart my bars
Got a weird smile, but I like it though
I’m high off the music, my head’s in the clouds
I’m just tryna be me, I am nobody else
Nah, I don’t wanna blend in with you little rappin’ idiots, I’d rather be the outcast
Woke up in the cell, where am I at?
Yeah, I don’t ever take a night off
But I’m not Mike Tyson, I won’t bite ya’
‘Cause I’m respectin’ women
And I’m still tryna figure it out
What am I, trapped?
was a chapter I’ll never forget, it was therapy for me T.S.
Take my brain, put it on the floor tryna figure out my motives
Ain’t no tellin’ what’ll happen when I pick up the microphone, get the fans together
[Chorus]
I’ll just be the outcast
Which is kinda confusin’, I’ve no been that way since a child
I’ll just be the outcast
I’ll just be the outcast
And I think to myself, "I don’t wanna fit in"
Somebody told you I was back? Yes, of course
I’ll just be the outcast
I’m just tryna be me, I am nobody else
I guess I’ll be the outcast
"I heard your record, I was laughin at it"
Goosebumps through the whole track
If I’ma die, I’ma die givin’ everything that I have
And I dwell on my sins, I keep wonderin’ when
Lights off in the room and I write songs
I’m a weird person with a weird crowd
Been a year and a half, feels like it’s gone forever
You ain’t got a seat belt on, better find one
Comin’ from a town where nobody hears a rap like this
I’ll just be the outcast
Ain’t no way I’m gonna hold back
Which is kinda confusin’, I’ve no been that way since a child
I don’t care what you think, I’m just bein’ myself
But I will fight anything to win
I kinda like it up here, I am not comin’ down
I might fall into my thoughts once in a while when the mic’s off
Feels wrong, but it feels right
Sing along to the pain, they love it
[Chorus]
I ain’t never puttin’ out trash
Ain’t no drink in my hand, but you know the buzz is comin’
[Verse 1]
I’d rather be alone, I am not good in crowds
I’m sorry, I wasn’t yellin’ at y’all, I was talkin’ to the voices
Yeah, I’ll just be the outcast
I make songs, I don’t make friends, judge me
And I stare at the locks and the tat on my skin
But I pick up the keys and I put on my Timbs
Life’s like a merry-go-round
I’m high off the music, my head’s in the clouds
Same style, but the songs are better
Yeah, it’s cold, but I like that
I’ll just be the outcast
Yeah, I guess I don’t fit the mold of rap

[Pre-Chorus]
What, you don’t like that?
Check the source Somebody told you I was wack?
Feels good to be here now
Every night I can hear voices
They laughin’, they tell me I’ll never get out
My whole life I’ve been airin’ it out
You ain’t ever seen no drive like mine, better hop outta my car
I don’t care what you think, I’m just bein’ myself
Heart’s beating out of my chest
I’d rather be alone, I am not good in crowds
Oh, I’m gettin’ into character now
There’s the door You got a problem with the fans?
Maybe they would like me more if I got a little graphic with it
Take a deep breath, I don’t need y’all’s respect
My thoughts are funny, it feels like I’m onto something, yeah
Difficult to process
Put a camera in my face, might turn Joker like I’m Mike Posner
So I guess for now
[Chorus]

[Verse 3]
I guess I’ll be the outcast
Check the morgue, agh! You lookin’ for the old me?
Always been a little complex
I got my own shoes, I ain’t tryna fit in yours
I’ll just be the outcast
I’m about to unlock my doors
[Pre-Chorus]
They laughin’, they tell me I’ll never get out

You look a little lost, you ain’t get that?
I take a hundred and staple it right to my tongue

I paint it on me and I’m walkin’ to the microphone
I never been married, but I’ve felt divorced
But it’s time to turn the page now
I guess I’ll be the outcast
Yeah, you done know I’m ’bout to go mad

I rip out the drums of the industry’s ears for tryin’ to ignore me and playin’ while singin’ this chorus
Might smile, but it ain’t that funny
Nah, you should see me when the door opens
Yeah, tryna focus
Big steps in the game, yeah, the Hulk is running
Y’all thought I was an issue when the door was locked
Hm, yeah, that’s weird, it doesn’t make sense, does it?
I’m tryna tell ’em my story! Hey, shut up!
That’s cool, that’s great, that’s fine, okay, you can leave now
*Hi, I’m Nate, have we met before?*
Not a fortune-teller, but I can see into the future better

I kinda like it up here, I am not comin’ down
I don’t blow it up in front of my own eyes

I’ll just be the outcast
Take a knife to my head then I cut it open
Door’s locked, but the keys are in my hands
But I will tell you if I don’t like you
[Chorus]
Got me thinkin’ that I’m cookin’ in a meth lab
I like space, I don’t fit in the crowds
I’ll just be the outcast
I’m a reject kid at recess playin’ games with his make-believe friends
Never wanted something so bad
Time to open the the doors, they don’t know who I am
I never get the memo, must’ve missed that
I’ll just be the outcast
