lyrics

VERSE 1
Learned my dad died
from a newspaper clipping.
Moms broke it to me
with her eye makeup dripping.
Remember staring at the picture
conjuring a vision,
his face was always blurred,
speakers blaring George Clinton.
Always listened to funk,
then go home to Kirk Franklin.
No melodies raining down,
I don’t know if the sound
of soft sobs coming my moms
could ever substitute my own
that never came.
The tears, like his face,
would always fade.
Never given an inch to be
anything but habitually
scrambling for epiphanies
life refuses to gift to me.
Nigga died on a Sunday.
Found out on a Wednesday,
an hour after the fucking
funeral already ended.
Aunt Jackie came through, brass knuckles
on the ready
for the cracker-ass heifer
that ain't even bother to tell me.
Mom’s words, not mine.
Waited for the grief to hit.
But, it never did.
It was better hid.

CHORUS X2
Memory will bring him
[Back to life]
Hold on to the feel.
Letting go of the real...
The tragic shit that smacks me
[back to reality]
Can I let him go?
Guess I'll never know.

VERSE 2
Maybe I never knew the nigga.
Ruffle through my past,
tryna get a truer picture…
creeping through the white noise,
like it’s 1990’s cinemax.
Thousand miles of static
swirls around the vintage ash
that they stashed in a box,
with a picture of face
scotch-taped to the top.
Auntie handed me a vial
of ash, it's all I got.
I saved the newspaper clipping,
but his face is faded.
Wife handed me box of scraps,
so of course I'm jaded.
The memories feel distant.
Like somebody else lived em,
and I'm just touring the visions.
don't recognize myself in em
even though I hold his face.
It’s anonymous to me.
Think back to golden days
putting together all
the pieces that explain
why I ain't never shed a
tear for the man despite the pain.
Cried every single one
as a kid wondering
if I'd ever see him again
when he was breathing.
So, maybe that's the reason.
Damn.. I can't help
feeling ashamed
laid up with my lady
going over baby names...
[back to life]
Thinking what I'd do,
knowing it ain't gonna be
Lewis Jr., that's the truth.
Moms called me Reggie
after my middle name,
cuz hearing my dad's
only ever brought her pain...
[back to life]
Now, that pain is forever, nigga.
