Robert Glasper - I Don't Even Care Lyrics

[Macy Gray:]
I don't wanna be
I ain't gotta be
I ain't gonna be
And I don't even care
I don't wanna be
I ain't gotta be
I ain't gonna be
And I don't even care

[Jean Grae:]
I mean, uh huh, yeah
I guess I could be what you wanted from me
If I was runnin' from me
If I wasn't honest
But see, when I was little
I made up a promise
Or wait, rather a premise
And that just prefaced everything
I've never been embedded in a mass cause, wait
Let me think back, nah
I think I said it right
I never considered this like a bed of feisty
The man I'm just better writer than a diva
I mean, I am a better writer than
I'd be a diva
Not aesthetically either and
I don't think of it evil, air quotes
The people and their folks need a hero
And a villain
But I'm both and neither
Dare most to reveal all the feelings
In the ether
With the glass jar
Her with the thin skin
Her with the mask on
My kid decision was living this
With the mask off
My middle finger cast off
I'ma leave the mask off
So fuck y'all

[Macy Gray & Jean Grae:]
I don't wanna be (and I don't wanna be)
I ain't gotta be (I never gotta be)
I ain't gonna be (Uh uh)
And I don't even care (I don't even care)
I don't wanna be (I never wanna be)
I ain't gotta be (I never gotta be)
I ain't gonna be (Uh uh)
And I don't even care (La, la, la-la, la)

[Jean Grae:]
It's not the censorship
Ten percent some mental shit
Ninety percent, the emphasis
It's just I don't care
I won't wear most of the clothes
You hoes wear
And I won't go to most of the shows
I don't fare
Being solo with scotch
And yelling YOLO with a spare glass
Toasting to myself and the ghost of my past
And glaring at
Cookie cutters over sharing
I'm over caring
You could find me over here
And it's apparent

[Macy Gray & Jean Grae:]
I don't wanna be (and I don't wanna be)
I ain't gotta be (I never gotta be)
I ain't gonna be (Uh uh)
And I don't even care (I don't even care)
I don't wanna be (I never wanna be)
I ain't gotta be (I never gotta be)
I ain't gonna be (Uh uh)
And I don't even care (La, la, la-la, la)

[Macy Gray:]
When you're lookin' my way
You'll be lookin' in space
Cause I am
I'm so outta here
I'm so outta here
I only do it my way
And when they see me, they beg
Cause I am
I'm so outta here
I'm so outta here

[Macy Gray & Jean Grae:]
Hey (I don't wanna be)
When you're lookin' my way (I ain't gotta be)
You'll be lookin' in space (I ain't gonna be)
Cause I am (And I don't even care)
I'm so outta here
I'm so outta here
Cause I'm so outta here
I'm so outta here
You'll be lookin' in space
And I'm gonna do it my way
Cause I'm so outta here
I'm so outta here
We so outta here
I don't really care
I don't really care

  8. neptronix

    Never heard anyone pull off drum 'n bass drumming in reality. That's some effin' talent. Hats off.

    Eunice Mumbit Trill

    I'm glad I found your comment i was about to write exactly that! that exact same glory,
    I felt in those drums! Back in the day we called these jazzy beats with them drum beats
    "intelligent drum and base"
    So miss those days, i actually can't find them tunes around today sadly. This is close but sax is missing, love the sound of him playing piano, but piano aside the drummer is amazing. Perfect combo.

    Awesome poetic!

  16. Gregory Brown

    Robert G. is the dude as far as I'm concerned. One more awesome great, in a looonnnng live of greats and equally important "innovators" The radio and music industry has changed, but don't be fooled as I was so sadly mistaken for a moment or two. There are "STILL" Amazing, gifted, dedicated, talented, innovative artist out there. This young man is one "PERFECT" example of that. Though he's been on the scene a while now. So good to see him finally getting his just due. He and many others have taken the baton and have evolved the art form to a higher level. I can remember as a young child sitting on my Dad's lap listening to the Grand Masters of his day. Duke, Count, Dizzy, Miles, so many others. Would love to see the jazz neo soul artist of today do a picture like the one done back in the day, called a great day in Harlem. Over 100 jazz artist in that picture during the heyday of bebop. Keep making it happen RG. You are musically fearless.

  17. TheKZmiddle

    For those cutting their teeth on this style the Glasper Trio is a great group to start with; within this genre. Jazz is feeling alive with every emotion and just freely expressing your songs within songs. I love this tune!

  94. Nasen Baer

    I think I listened to this at least 150 times in the last 6 weeks

  95. willie hooper

    Drums suck in this combo playing drum n bass... your a trio perform like one, I wouldn't just kill the hi hit like that... yeah the drum chop is good but the improve is way way off no flow... they call it a ride cymbal for a reason..... need more flow

    Anton Mück

    Tbh i think the smooth drum n bass groove lays perfect on the piano

  96. Alà Eddin Abugrara

    A M A Z I N G
    This shit is superior take it or leave it this guy is just the best

  97. julio herrera

    Awsome songThe drum and bass style drumming wasn't bad, it's a great idea to mix with jazz, but Mr. Reid didn't execute it the best. I just don't think the snare licks meshed well with the rest of the band. It's all acoustic also, so brushes or rim lick would be grooved well. It could've been the volume levels, but overall the open handed drumming didn't do it for me.

  98. Zbigniew Janusz Niewiadomski

    Master class

  99. Stefano Feik Filio Saavedra

    It`s jazz but the rythm sounds like Drum n Bass
