oddisee – hold it back lyrics

[verse one]
i’m asked to speak but not to tell the truth
anonymously in the credits you can check the proof
in the camera, innovators and creators real
in the mirror imitators and the takers steal
that’s a practice put in action that could win awards
yeah we love the frauds
but hate the ones that really come with cause
moment of silence for me, i don’t really need applause
think i’m loud enough when i’m alone with all my inner thoughts
may i never meet the people i’m inspired by, and find out that they’re really, really fake or they just kind of lied
kind of surprised i was able to keep my mouth shut
this long, but
on this song, i’ma tell how i feel being quite is a crime
not enough fake g’s doing time
i’m not the only one to notice that
i’m cutting all my ties
i think it’s time i stopped holding back

[hook]
hold it back (no i can’t)
​(repeated)

[verse two]
i make more than my sister
cause i was born as a mister
and i ain’t never been to college, and she graduated honors
yet the bosses think that i’m a better fit, huh
well, that annoy me more than cargo shorts
and yoga pants that’s worn at anything that’s not a sport
dinner plans at eight
and if show you up in some sneakers better call me in advance to say you running late
i’m a contemporary man
i mean take it back to what, so y’all could screw it up again while you’re running for an office, i’ma run away from coffins
pray the policies show progress before they boot it up again
cause every time we restart it
we gon’ push the demons deeper in the closet
it ain’t no secret they just seeping out regardless
we’re keeping logic hostage
we need to stop

[hook]
hold it back (no i can’t)
​(repeated)

[verse three]
tell them how you really feel, they label you a hater
that’s the greatest trick impostors ever played on the creator
you around here acting like we’re equal but we greater
bring up talent all you want but you can keep your resume though
talk is cheaper now and it is just dropping by the day though
take precaution putting stock in anything somebody say though
we gon’ tell you anything we want to get a payload
don’t be shocked if we come talking to you like it was a day old
clock restarted
we gon’ push the demons deeper in the closet
it ain’t no secret they just seeping out regardless
keeping logic hostage
we need to stop

[hook]
hold it back (no i can’t)
​(repeated)
