grandson - The Ballad of G and X // Interlude lyrics

[Verse 1]
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 the 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
(Yeah, it's 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
(Yeah, it's poison)

[Chorus]
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?

[Verse 2]
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 I'ma 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 (Yeah, it's poison)

[Chorus]
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?
