Flying Lotus - Never Catch Me Lyrics

[Kendrick Lamar:]
I can see the darkness in me and its quite amazing
Life and death is no mystery and I wanna taste it
Step inside of my mind and you'll find
Curiosity, animosity, high philosophy like the prophesied meditation
Reminisce on my wonder years and I wonder yah
Sentiments of my words ain't been so sincere
The sentiment of my nerves that I just persevere
The big thought of fallin' off disappeared to my fate
They say that Heaven's real
Analyze my demise, I say I'm super anxious
Recognize I deprive this fear and then embrace it
Vandalizing these walls only if they could talk
Conversations don't contemplate to my dark thoughts
Lookin' down on my soul now
Tell me I'm in control now
Tell me I can live long and I can live wrong and I can live right
And I can sing songs and I can unite with you that I love, you that I like
Look at my life and tell me I fight
This that final destination, this that find some information
This that find some inspiration, this that crack, the instillation
This that consciousness sharpening and fist pump and that bomb detonation
Please don't bomb my nation, embalming fluid waiting
I got mind control when I'm here, you gon' hate me when I'm gone
Ain't no blood pumpin' no fear, I got hope inside of my bones
This that life beyond your own life, this say this go for mankind
This that outer-body experience, no coincidence you been died
You are dead

Say you will never ever catch me, no, no, no
Say you will never ever catch me, no, no, no
Say you will never ever catch me, no, no, no
Say you will never ever catch me, no, no, no

    One of the most beautiful songs I've ever heard. When I'm ever in a really dark place, this song just moves me. It just puts me in a place of solace.

  11. Josuekv

    Is Hiro Murai some sort of midas?

  12. slaven djakovic

    Hiro Murai has to be the best video director of this decade

  22. Perry Mathebula


  23. INfusion

    All I can think of when watching this is its a mothers half attempt to hide her grief through a joke
    "the little tricksters are probably still alive and sneaked home in the car"

  24. WAKE UP!

    I want to meet the film Producer...IMMEDIATELY!

  38. DJ CatsaNova

    I liked seeing that kids were used in this. I feel like we forget the role kids play in our lives and how we influence them. As a kid music consumed my life, and to have been a part of a project like this would have forever changed my life and heighten my love for it even more

  39. Augusto edilson Pereira Caballero

  60. Michael Mars

  61. BariumCobaltNitrog3n

    Anyone think this is an homage to Mrs. Robinson? Instead of a wedding, a funeral (mo betta) where the deceased get to rise again, dance like children and fly away in a hearse (Harold and Maude!) and I loved the sly reference to OJ jumping over seats in the airport. Once was is not anymore, kids are awesome, never gonna catch em.

  65. el scientifico

    We are kept from the power and the wealth, we are kept from a seat at the table. We are forever the nappy headed stepchild BUT we are evolving. We are the ones that look to the future, the one's who create from the rubble and the wreckage they give us... create something new and beautiful. And in this spirit we can move this world forward... if only for ourselves.

  66. Franchesca David

  70. Lil Pen C3E

    I remember when I went to my cousins funeral, and just feeling...empty. If that makes any sense. It felt so surreal, one day I'm chilling and playing with him, the next he's no longer with me. It was like a nightmare, yet inescapable from.

  71. jamie lunes

    This song and music video literally brings a tear to my eye due to the amount of people I’ve lost to the world but it makes me feel good to know that they don’t have to suffer inside this hateful environment but instead get to experience true life with the aid of happiness

    Aaron Spurlock

    Happiness is attainable on Earth, remember that it's very possible there's nothing after this, and you should enjoy what you have instead of vying for a potential future after life.

  80. Robert Harris
