    High Voltage Lyrics 03:45
    I cannot take this anymore
    Saying everything I’ve said before
    All these words they make no sense
    I find bliss in ignorance
    Less I hear the less you’ll say
    You’ll find that out anyway
    
    Just like before…
    
    [Chorus:]
    Everything you say to me
    Takes me one step closer to the edge
    And I’m about to break
    I need a little room to breathe
    Cause I’m one step closer to the edge
    I’m about to break
    
    I find the answers aren’t so clear
    Wish I could find a way to disappear
    All these thoughts they make no sense
    I find bliss in ignorance
    Nothing seems to go away
    Over and over again
    
    Just like before…
    
    [Chorus]
    
    Everything you say to me
    Takes me one step closer to the edge
    And I’m about to break
    I need a little room to breathe
    Cause I’m one step closer to the edge
    And I’m about to break
    
    Shut up when I’m talking to you
    Shut up, shut up, shut up
    Shut up when I’m talking to you
    Shut up, shut up, shut up, shut up
    
    I’m about to BREAK
    
    [Chorus]
    
    Everything you say to me
    Takes me one step closer to the edge
    And I’m about to break
    I need a little room to breathe
    Cause I’m one step closer to the edge
    And I’m about to break
    This is my December
    This is my time of the year
    This is my December
    This is all so clear
    This is my December
    This is my snow covered home
    This is my December
    This is me alone
    
    And I,
    Just wish that I didn’t feel
    Like there was something I missed
    And I,
    Take back all the things I said
    To make you feel like that
    And I,
    Just wish that I didn’t feel
    Like there was something I missed
    And I,
    Take back all the things that I said to you
    
    And I’d give it all away
    Just to have somewhere to go to
    Give it all away
    To have someone to come home to
    
    This is my December
    These are my snow covered trees
    This is me pretending
    This is all I need
    
    And I,
    Just wish that I didn’t feel
    Like there was something I missed
    And I,
    Take back all the things I said
    To make you feel like that
    And I,
    Just wish that I didn’t feel
    Like there was something I missed
    And I,
    Take back all the things that I said to you
    
    And I’d give it all away
    Just to have somewhere to go to
    Give it all away
    To have someone to come home to
    
    This is my December
    This is my time of the year
    This is my December
    This is all so clear
    
    Give it all away
    Just to have somewhere to go to
    Give it all away
    To have someone to come home to
    
    Give it all away
    Just to have somewhere to go to
    Give it all away
    To have someone to come home to
    You know what I mean, you could probably leave all the lights down. You know what i mean?
    
    Just do something to tell you who I am, ya know?
    
    I’ve been digging into crates ever since I was living in space
    Before the rat race, before monkeys had human traits
    Mastered numerology and big bang theology
    Performed lobotomies with telekinetic psychology
    Invented the mic so I could start blessing it
    And chin checking kids to make my point like an impressionist
    Many men have tried to shake us
    But I twist mic cords to double helixes and show them what
    I’m made of
    I buckle knees like leg braces
    Cast the spell of instrumentalness and all of the emcees
    That hate us
    So try on, leave you without a shoulder to cry on
    From now to infinity let icons be bygones
    I fire bomb, ghostly notes haunt this
    I’ve tried threats but moved on to a promise
    I stomp shit with or without an accomplice
    And run the guantlet with whoever that wants this
    
    High voltage (The unforgettable sound)
    High voltage (bringing you up and taking you down)
    High voltage (Coming at you from memory side)
    High voltage (making the rhythm of rhyme collide)
    
    Akira
    Put a kink in the backbones of clones with microphones
    And never satisfy my rhyme jones
    Spraying bright day over what you might say
    Blood type Krylon
    Technicolor type A
    On highways write with road rage on pages of wind
    In cages of tin that bounce all around
    In surround sound devouring the scene
    Subliminal gangrene paintings
    Overall the same things sing song karaoke copy bullshit
    Break bones verbally with sticks and stone tactics
    Fourth dimension, combat convention
    Write rhymes at ease while the tracks stand at attention
    Meant to put you away with the pencil
    Pistol, official, 16 line rhyme missile
    While you risk your all, I pick out all your flaws
    Spin, raw raw blah blah
    You can say you saw
    
    High voltage (The unforgettable sound)
    High voltage (bringing you up and taking you down)
    High voltage (Coming at you from memory side)
    High voltage (making the rhythm of rhyme collide)
    
    High voltage (The unforgettable sound)
    High voltage (bringing you up and taking you down)
    High voltage (Coming at you from memory side)
    High voltage (making the rhythm of rhyme collide)
