80 Grams by Melodie Yvonne Ramey

Exhausted emotions swinging so freely
Strayed wishes for someone somewhere to see me
I’m getting so tired and wishin’ for solace
This sure as hell ain’t what our parents taught us

Thought I’d be somethin’ or at least I’d be free
but I’m guessin’ what really ain’t meant to be
Tryin’ to be pure and find hope to hold onto
but gettin’ so tired wearin’ cement filled shit boots

Love me or leave me I’m all that I am
I’m an old broken record you pressed 80 grams
Love me or leave me I’m all that I am
and you’re not gonna change me so why give a damn

Lost in my mind’s twisted carnival soup
I’m stuck feelin’ caged all ensnared in a loupe
Thousands of eyeballs are focused down on me
from judgmental faces so wretched and beastly

Digital silhouettes rise with their glow
and they try to attack my frail analog soul
Then a smile on your lips brings me quite a surprise
but I’m over and done with your pixel filled eyes

Love me or leave me I’m all that I am
I’m an old broken record you pressed 80 grams
Love me or leave me I’m all that I am
No matter your patch my whole melody’s damned

Love me or leave me I’m all that I am
Still that old broken record you pressed 80 grams
Love me or leave me I’m all that I am
and you’re not gonna change me so why give a damn
