Father Time (feat. Sampha)

You really need some therapy
Real n- need no therapy, f- you talkin' about?
Nah, nah, you sound stupid as f-
Sh-, everybody stupid
Yeah, well, you need to talk to somebody
Reach out to Eckhart

I come from a generation of home invasions and I got daddy issues, that's on me
Everything them four walls had taught me, made habits bury deep
That man knew a lot, but not enough to keep me past them streets
My life is a plot, twisted from directions that I can't see
Daddy issues all across my head, told me "F- a foul"
I'm teary-eyed, wanna throw my hands, I won't think out loud
Foolish pride, if I lose again, won't go in the house
I stayed outside, laughin' with my friends, they don't know my life

Daddy issues made me learn losses, I don't take those well
Momma said, "That boy is exhausted," he said, "Go f- yourself"
If he give up now, that's gon' cost him, life's a b-
You could be a b- or step out the margin, I got up quick
I'm chargin' baskets and falling backwards, tryna keep balance
Oh, this the part where mental stability meets talent
Oh, this the part, he breaks my humility just for practice
Tactics we learned together, sore losers forever, daddy issues

Early mornin' wake-ups (ah), practicin' on day-offs (ah)
Tough love (ah), bottled up, no chaser (ah)
Neat, no chaser (ah), neat, no chaser (ah)
Neat, no chaser (ah), neat, no chase

Early mornin' wake-ups (ah), practicin' on day-offs (ah, day-offs)
Tough love (ah), bottled up, no chaser (ah)
Neat, no chaser (ah), neat, no chaser (ah)
Neat, no chaser (ah), neat, no chaser

I got daddy issues, that's on me
Lookin' for, "I love you," rarely empathizin' for my relief
A child that grew accustomed, jumping up when I scraped my knee
'Cause if I cried about it, he'd surely tell me not to be weak

Daddy issues, hid my emotions, never expressed myself
Men should never show feelings, being sensitive never helped
His momma died, I asked him why he goin' back to work so soon?
His first reply was, "Son, that's life, the bills got no silver spoon"

Daddy issues, f- everybody, go get your money, son
Protect yourself, trust nobody, only your momma'n'em
This made relationships seem cloudy, never attached to none
So if you took some likings around me, I might reject the love
Daddy issues kept me competitive, that's a fact, n-
I don't give a f- what's the narrative, I am that nigga
When Kanye got back with Drake, I was slightly confused
Guess I'm not mature as I think, got some healin' to do

Egotistic, zero-given f- and to be specific (ah)
Need assistance with the way I was brought up (ah, ah)
What's the difference when your heart is made of stone?
And your mind is made of gold
And your tongue is made of sword, but it may weaken your soul?
My n- ain't got no daddy, grow up overcompensatin'
Learn sh- 'bout bein' a man and disguise it as bein' gangsta

I love my father for tellin' me to take off the gloves
'Cause everything he didn't want was everything I was
And to my partners that figured it out without a father
I salute you, may your blessings be neutral to your toddlers
It's crucial, they can't stop us if we see the mistakes
'Til then, let's give the woman a break, grown men with daddy issues

Early mornin' wake-ups (ah), practicin' on day-offs (ah, day-offs)
Tough love (ah), bottled up, no chaser (ah)
Neat, no chaser (ah), neat, no chaser (ah)
Neat, no chaser (ah), neat, no chaser
