  • This may have already been observed but I think the word "Lost" is partially a throwback to The Search when he says he's looking for the map to hope. Like, he either hasn't found the map yet and is now lost or he found the map but got mixed up with the directions and feels lost in the midst of it.

    Mary MartinezMary Martinezיום לפני
  • I think to someone who is going through things themselves his music is giving so much hope even though it hurts how real it is.... Art is not supposed to be analyzed and criticized , it is there to be do people even think its ok to put out all their opinions on someone they don't know ..... I feel so much hope when I listen to his music.... I wish people would stop being so entitled about people who are speaking out the fears they are living out, also feel like its always people the world "needs" the most, that mean people are trying to silence with half-truths and a pinch of toxic doubts

  • I usually don't like rap or care for it due to what most rap singers represent and sing about, but NF has some really strong deep pieces he creates that are not filled with trash meanings and empty lyrics. Good job, NF!

  • [Verse 1] Clicks, clicks, clicks, they'll do anything to get a few Tick, tick, tick, that's the sound before my head explodes Quit, quit, quit, look at you up on your pedestals Quick, quick, quick, here the critics come, it's time to go I read your article, it kinda hurt me I don't know who hired you or what your friends say in your circle But the fact that you released it tells me two things are for certain They get paid for trashin' people, I get paid 'cause I stay workin' (Yeah) Dropped The Search and they emerge up outta nowhere to the surface Just to peek behind the curtain, throwin' salt at all my burdens I'm aware I shouldn't give this my attention, life's a journey I should just stay on my path and learn to laugh, you think they heard me? Ears are burning, put 'em out, quiet, quiet, look around Why don't they find someone way more interesting to write about? Us, we're kinda boring, aren't we? All we do is whine and pout It's confusing, so amusing how I argue with myself Hello [Verse 2] I spit it with ease, so leave it to me You doubt it, but you better believe I'm on a rampage, hit 'em with the record release Depend on the week, I'm prolly gonna have to achieve Another goal, let me go when I'm over the beat I go into beast mode, like I'm ready to feast I'm fed up with these thieves, tryna get me to bleed They wanna see me take an L, yep, see what I mean? How many records I gotta give you to get with the program? Taken for granted, I'm 'bout to give you the whole plan Open your mind up and take a look at the blueprint Debate if you gotta, but gotta hold it with both hands To pick up the bars, you gotta be smart You really gotta dig in your heart If you wanna get to the root of an issue Pursuin' the mental can be dark and be difficult But the pay off at the end of it can help you to get through it, ayy [Chorus] Paid my dues, made it through (Woo, woo, woo) Spread the news, I'm on the loose (Woo, woo, woo) Makin' moves, I need some room (Woo, woo, woo) Thought we's cool, well, don't assume, don't assume, ayy [Verse 3] I'm the truth, oh, they want some proof? Here, don't be rude Somethin' new, even when I lose, I make it look cool Do the show, then we hit the room, wife is lookin', oh What to do? I don't need the shades up to like the view (Yeah) It's time to get back in the swing of things When my life crashes, I'm not the guy that'll flee the scene I'll take ownership and own it and raise my hand if it's me Just remember though, I'm only a man, I'm a human being Don't they see? Shoot the breeze, I'd rather just stay discrete People claim they're in your corner, but leave you in times of need They don't listen, do they? (What?) They don't listen to anything I'll accept advice if it's not presented ignorantly Look, costs are high, they multiply Then cause divides, I'm forced to fight The poison I been sippin' on has quite the bite, it killed me twice They rigged the lights so y'all can see The parts of mine that aren't so bright See, often I apologize, then authorize the awful times To pop up (Nate!) like I'm right behind you I'd advise you not to try to climb inside the mind like I do Keep the rhyme book, expedite it, overnight it Hold it tight and hope that time is on my side 'Cause if it's not, then I'll decide to override my own demise I tow the line too close and I could improvise I'd empathize, but recognize The fact that I could jeopardize and wreck our lives You better give me your attention, the undivided
