Stop Listening to Worry (6:20)

Written by W. Steffey, D. Malik

Sanitize your tables
Cause we’re all bringing it in
Characters with different names
Trapped in the myths of skin

Pitching out our shadows, yeah
I say, I say
On different dudes and different dames
I say, I say

Baby I’m so lost sometimes
And my soul is wearin’ thin
Manufacturing some signs
That which is missing within

Stop listening to worry and it goes away
Stop listening to worry and it goes away

Welcome to my sequel
Be my cellmate be my twin
Separate the dark from light
Garbage out from the garbage in

We all change in different ways
I say, I say
Learn to love, dispel the haze
I say, I say

Baby I’m so lost sometimes
And my soul is wearin’ thin
Manufacturing some signs
That which is missing within

Stop listening to worry and it goes away
Stop listening to worry and it goes away
Stop listening to worry and it goes away

The big baaaang that went Kaboom
Was actually a 🦋 that came out a cocoon
Had some babies and we were the caterpillars the catalyst trigger was
Learning how to crawl before we WALK
Then spread our wings and FLY the metamorphosis unfortunately turned some into THEE MOTH who burned when they get close to the Light
A RE-sult the more you give in to what’s outside aaaand then subscribe
The moooore you give awaaay what’s inside
And I for one ain’t a organ donor proof is in the pudding how my mama didn’t go abort the homie
I’m so alive and well my shadows can go hide themselves wherever they go I’m right there re-citing song of the Nightingale
So I tell em enjoy the ride fam you might as well because

Baby I was lost for a time
But the sun it dragged me in
Now I’m swimming with the signs
That match up with what’s within

Omg can’t believe what I see looking at my reflection
A blessing
the power I hide one heck a disguise
Behind these two eyes
While my 3rd’s Collecting uuup all my fragments of my soul through the lives
Of each and everybody that comes in my lobby by surprise
And by design the sacred geometry puppeteers what I find
And so I know it’s only me who hold the keys to my mind and I

Stop listening to worry and it goes away
Stop listening to worry and it goes away

Baby I was lost for a time
But the sun it dragged me in
Now I’m swimming with the signs
That match up with what’s within

Baby I was lost for a time
But the sun it dragged me in
Now I’m swimming with the signs
That match up with what’s within
