"I Spent the Winter Writing Songs About Getting Better"

[Intro]
Ooh-ooh-ooooh, ooh-ooh-ooooh
Ooh-ooh-ooooh,  ooh-ooh-ooooh

[Verse 1]
Never  been religious, even when I was a kid
I’d sit in the pews and pretend
But if I’m wrong, I’d like to have one nice long talk
With  whoever would create an idiosyncrasy like me

[Chorus]
I’d  say hey Allah, the jig is up
That was a good one
Making  me in your image with the parts that people hate
I’d say hey Shiva, creator and destroyer
If you could take me out with one of your 4 arms
Boy, that would be great
Oh  f*ck, I’m sorry

[Verse 2]
There I go again, ready to throw in the towel
'Cause even though I lost the weight
Made lifelong friends, and moved to a shining blue state
Some days I still can’t see the rainbows past storm clouds
Because depression has no expiration
There’s no off button, this is it for the rest of my life
But it’s a life I’ll gladly live
Even the moments where the battle feels uphill
There will be more good days than bad
I’m going the distance in this fight

[Instrumental Bridge]

[Refrain]
Fight for more good days than bad
Fight for the life you told your younger-self you’d have
Fight for more good days than bad
Fight for the life you told your younger-self you’d have
Fight for more good days than bad
Fight for the life you told your younger-self you’d have
Fight for more good days than bad
Fight for the life you told your younger-self you’d have

[Outro - Spoken Word]
I know it’s easier to repeat a mantra than to live it
And I know it’s easier to talk about your goals than to stick with it
'Cause believe me, I spent so much time shooting myself in the foot, talking about being better
Doing better but leaving the bait on the hook

Who the f*ck am I to tell you it gets better?
When you and I both know that for some people it won’t?
Who am I to stand on this stage, broadcasting page after page
Of thoughts that will embarrass my family?
Leading you to believe that I know the answers when I don’t
What I do know is that you’re never too old to come of age
There are millions of people in this country living their own Great American Novel, our lives are the pen scribbling half-thoughts furiously on this lands page
We don’t know where we’re going we just know we want the ending to be great, and there’s nothing wrong with that

A grand gesture to the world:
I was here, I made something, I spoke up
I got better, maybe you can too?
If that’s what you want, but what do I want?
Because I tell myself I want a mule and forty acres of land
I tell myself I want to reclaim my motherlands
I tell myself I want to be the biggest f*cking band on this planet
But really though, honestly, I would settle for making those dull lights from the beginning a little more bright
I want to die knowing I made it even a little easier for every single kid like me

I want to own up to my mistakes and show that it’s okay to be wrong, I want to redact that line on that song about wishing no one said the N word at all - because f*ck that!
Me and my n*ggas are shutting this sh*t down unashamed and unembarrassed
Me and my n*ggas were really out here in Paris
Gold jewelry on brown skin glistening under the moonlight
The storm clouds reduced to a light drizzle, a feeling of weightlessness, remembering what a perfect night feels like
Because even if these moments are far and few between
Even if there’s a grand scheme and these moments don’t mean anything
I want to collect them to remind myself that life still can still grab me
I want to remember that there are moments where I’m capable of being so f*cking happy
