The Old Man Lyrics Genesis Owusu

[Intro]
Sometimes it feels like-

[Chorus]
There's an old man
Waiting in the sky
Just to fuck my life up
(I don't get it, I don't care about it)
(I don't get it, I don't care about it)

[Verse 1]
Tapping in the worst to get the best of me, hey
Tapping in the words to get the bread to me
Waitin' for the burnin' of the effigy
The hate I can handle, but the love always suspect to me
You see the black and white, I see the lines between, the world's a checkered tee
My niggas wanna check on me, I leave 'em on seen
While I scream and I scream 'till I'm hoarse, like a kettle mean
Did the work to keep together now I cut the seam

[Chorus]
There's an old man (I don't care about it)
Waiting in the sky
Just to fuck my life up
(I don't get it, I don't care about it, hey)
(I don't get it, I don't care about it)

[Verse 2]
What's a Roach to a God?
Tryna find the drive, but I got a slashed tire
Everyday I wake up, boy, I'm battling Goliath
Flowers in the fist, still can't avoid violence
Tryna run from hell, I feel the warmth from the fire
In my veins
Yesterday's burnt, but today's not the same
Squash my leg, five more to my name
Plan to leave more on this earth than a stain
Run Roach, run!

[Chorus]
(I don't get it, I don't care about it)
(I don't get it, I don't care about it)
There's an old man (I don't get it, I don't care about it)
Waiting in the sky (I don't get it, I don't care about it)
Just to fuck my life up
(I don't get it, I don't care about it)
(I don't get it, I don't care about it)

[Outro]
Your master is a system
Your master is a suit
Your master is a dollar
The chaos that ensues (Yeah)
Your master is a system
Your master is a suit
Your master is a planet
The chaos that ensues (Yeah)
Your master is a system
Your master is a suit
Your master is absurdity
God bless the truth (What, what?)
God bless the truth (Hey, hey)
God bless the truth (Boom)
God bless the truth
God bless the truth
