Oakes, Ryan - Castles Lyrics




[Delaney Kai:]
Life in the fast lane, we play our cards
Praying we'll find out just who we are
We built us a mansion, from broken hearts
And filled all the emptiness with broken parts
King of this castle, I wear the crown
Hoping it lives on when I reach the ground
The demons in my head, all dance around
I'm facing this bottle, and praying they drown

[Ryan Oakes:]
Bitch I been the king of this castle, I built it from the gravel
Been slaving everyday with no shackles, I figured that I'd tackled
The work and all the battles, associated with this life I'm everything but fragile
I heard they wanna come for me
Well that's company, homie that's luxury, people wanna fuck with me
Luckily I got me a foundation, and a location good for when it gets ugly
Yeah, don't tell me slow my roll
Homie give that shit a rest and put that shit on parole
I give my heart and my soul, until I'm reaching the goal
Of having everything I wanted so I'm building a mote
I'm isolated alone, I'm working up till it's late
See I been battling with destiny and wrestling fate
They always try to get the best of me they testing my pace
Man I can how much I want so imma never escape
And so I learned to embrace, all of the pain to be great
And then I learn to erase all of the things in my way
And then you learn to replace all of the things in the gape
That left you empty wanting more and then it's finally straight
And now I'm finding the strength, to try and shepherd the cattle
Who stuck in a capsule living life in their shackles
Tryna though the day, they tryna get through these battles
And never let them into these castles, Oakes

[Delaney Kai:]
Life in the fast lane, we play our cards
Praying we'll find out just who we are
We built us a mansion, from broken hearts
And filled all the emptiness with broken parts
King of this castle, I wear the crown
Hoping it lives on when I reach the ground
The demons in my head, all dance around
I'm facing this bottle, and praying they drown

[Ryan Oakes:]
I need everyone wake up, ya'll building your own funeral
Sitting inside a cubicle wishing your life is beautiful
Its inexcusable, if your happiness isn't mutual
With everything your doing, your living is so unsuitable
And all of its removable, people think they're trapped
In a history repeats itself cycle of the past
Yeah simplicity a sweet and safe life until you smash
In the mysteries of could've been then everything will crash
Then everything will burn, and the only thing that's left
Is the person in the mirror tryna swallow their regret
Overthinking every night and realizing they're depressed
Tryna get through every day cause they're a motherfucking wreck
I don't mean no disrespect, but this shit is your life
You wanna waste it in an office knowing you don't get it twice
And you won't second guess it for a second till it bites
You in the ass up on your death bed when you wish you did it right
Normal can't suffice, everybody gotta destiny
They settling for less than they deserve its in the recipe
Passion equals profit perseverance is your weaponry
To build you up a motherfucking legacy
Everyone pretend to be happy through out all these battles
They stuck in they capsules and they bound to their shackles
See I'm here to tackle, flip the world the world on its axles
And show 'em how to give up these castles, Oakes

[Delaney Kai:]
Life in the fast lane, we play our cards
Praying we'll find out just who we are
We built us a mansion, from broken hearts
And filled all the emptiness with broken parts
King of this castle, I wear the crown
Hoping it lives on when I reach the ground
The demons in my head, all dance around
I'm facing this bottle, and praying they drown
