Gilded Shells

on the attack
my nigga climbed right back
waste ten more years trying to get at that
try to scale the platinum jail
try to break myself out but it never fails
looking like a banshee
stuck like a tattoo
the shit is beyond best
baby, what we gonna do?
make it to the morning
maybe if with only knew

golden shackles
gilded shells
you brought me here?
i brought myself.
i walked here on my own two legs
now, let me be alone

such brilliant chains
to bind my bones
this husk is all you asked for
can't decide which love to mask more
force me to the floor

such gilded shells we hide inside
so soft beneath, we try to lie
my parts are platinum
chained inside
i've looked for you
but i've been blind

the empty space it can't be filled
you try to move, it wont be willed
evident no matter how skilled
the empty shell you try to gild
