Atmosphere - Drown Lyrics




[Slug:]
I knew that I couldn't survive
Without you by my side
But I'm alive
I thought that it was more than a tattoo
Try not to get caught in the classroom
Tomorrow morning while the galaxy is forming
I'mma find a box of stories
Buried in the garden under the pouring rain
Never seen the storm before it came
Find the strength to forgive my jinx
Swim the length of the kitchen sink
Freedom of speech don't mean what you think
Hold that thought I'm about to close the ink
Y'all know I never gave a frozen shit
I'm just trying to hold my head above the hopelessness
They wanna blow some kisses at the showmanship
Until they're poking at your legacy with broken sticks

[DeM atlaS:]
Yeah I think I'm going down
Don't know what to do
I'mma drown
With you
With you (yeah)

Yeah I think I'm going down
Don't know what to do
I'mma drown
With you
With you (yeah)

[The Lioness:]
Here we go
I'm trying to be peaceful
Keep on clashing with your ego
No logic or reason when speaking
Get peace and disagreements
Tell me what you really thinking when you drinking
Say that you don't mean it
I heard that before
I don't believe it
Listen to people
That tell you everything in how they treat you
View kindness as weakness
Say you don't need me
Hard to let go
But I'm leaving faceless right now
What is easy
Get the very leases
Exactly what you receive
What you see's your reflection of what you think you perceive
Don't make a promise you can't keep
But keep with these to release repeat the things that you should change
Your hands and things can't point the blame
No you can't stay
You can't just take reciprocate make an exchange
I'm lighting sage to cleanse a space
Getting that bad energ-y up off of m-e
Replaced with inner peace
Fools call you so expose enemies with false identities
You're no friend to me so don't pretend to be

[DeM atlaS:]
Yeah I think I'm going down
Don't know what to do
I'mma drown
With you
With you (yeah)

Yeah I think I'm going down
Don't know what to do
I'mma drown
With you
With you (yeah)

I been let down before
Laying against this wall
Ain't no use in crying
When I'm sober I drink
Always up when I sink
In a comer I'm blinking
And in my own mistakes
Laying in my bed and rest
Ain't no use in trying
When I'm shocked I won't shoot
Don't know what
They're trying to hurt me
Love me then desert me
Don't give me your mercy
Feel like my flesh burn me
So let's start a fire
Goes on every hour
They're trying to drown me
Feel like I am falling

    nice, only a slight problem bruh, the hook is Cashinova and deM does the last verse

    Julia Peine

    Fuck yeah thank ya- daniel

    Keith Graham

    @Crispin McFiddlesticks yeah it even has him in the video singing it -.-

  81. JAMS

    I'm gonna bring you back! Much love. Words on point

  82. Michael Anderson

    My guy cashinova goes crazy!

  83. Levi McGee

    The only talent in this song is Slug. Love me or hate me. I don’t care. The chorus is weird and the chick rapping is all over the place. She’s okay at best. As usual, when listening to a song from Atmos, I’m most impressed by Slug and Ant alone.

  84. Aimee Calladine

    Just saw them perform this live💖

    Eat Cheap Perth

    #word sista!

  85. Clark Fluegel

    Fuck me.. this is the best hip hop track ever made.

  86. HOODBiLLY KREEPER

    This song has me coming back every night.... play it at my funeral

  87. Josh Spare

    The Lioness and Dem Atlas are the real deal.

  88. Kyle Parker

    *Recovery. Sobriety. A clean slate. A second chance. My future may look alot like that of a newborn. Eager to embrace the world in all its glory. Blind to the darkness that seemed to embody my former self. A new life, one that sees, hears, and speaks no evil. A life that embraces all that is holy: a light that shines like the light on a lighthouse, my conciousness the vessel it guides. A life teeming with the power of self-control. One that knows, almost subconsciously, the path it must follow, if not for the benefit of myself, but for the benefit of others. The path will most likely be that of a path which never ends: forks in the road plenty like the branches on a tree, in which the wind it blows constantly, threating the possibility of failure at the wrong turn. So intricately bound by desire of wholeness will I follow this path, in hopes that along the way I will find the meaning of my life before a lesson already learned. A lesson of pain and suffering that can only be brought on by one 'self. Writing this I am a caterpillar in hibernation; bound by the security I have woven for myself, learning over time the beauty that is yet to be. On the day I set myself free, I will have my wings again; the ones before my reincarnation clipped for the experience of having been there. An experience that resembles the roots of a tree yet to grow, the foundation that which will withstand time itself, because this time when life shall end, I will have a legacy to leave behind. One that will inspire the hopeless and the blind to follow suit, making a chain reaction of new life in its wake. And like a forest it will be changing with the seasons until we can no longer breathe with the sun. The roots are being watered by loved ones and a higher power, greater than anything before, and soon I shall grow, for I planted the seed myself when I finally decided to change.*

    -Kyle Parker Fay

    Valentines day, 2019.

    Eat Cheap Perth

    Good Luck! Kyle, coming from us that, are spirit warriors that have operated in the dark for too long. We wield our consciousness like a weapon and have destroyed much in the past but now we perceive more than just orders and objectives and have evolved to "Soldiers of Light".

    Light and Love! #Oss

    Saw Atmosphere live in 2016, Dem Atlas and Brother Ali were the openers, felt like I got 3 shows for one price. Had never heard of Dem Atlas prior, and I'm so stoked to see how far he goes.
