Lyrics


Faceless Man

I remember the stone stairs
I remember the cold stares I remember the cold air
I remember
I remember the darkness
No love it was heartless
the smell of smoke stained the walls
And my dad at the door lookin at me like something wrong
Wit me
Never claimed me
Cuz he don't get me
Always played it 50
I was 6 years old got dropped at my pops
Mom had to go to the docs for a check up
Like
you been causing problems?
No sir
listen to ur momma?
Yessir
You know how to work a tv
Yessir
Good so don't come bother me
I don't got time to teach you don't act simple ya hear
You heard me boy with that funny thing that’s inside ya ear
You heard me
I'm just thinking please don't hurt me
Momma please come back he don't deserve me

HOOK
How can I recognize a faceless man
Will he remember me?
How can I recognize a faceless man
will he remember meeting me

I seen em chain smokin
On the phone joking
Told me stay frozen
I'm wishing and hoping.
We could connect for a moment
He goin out for a bit and I’m alone with a bologna sandwich and milk
He told me lil boy just chill
You can't come wit me
I’m like whatever, Tom & Jerry keep me company
didn’t have captions but they had action
I’m glued to the show got me laughing
time’s up
pops said your momma’s in her way
sit out the door and wait
I just said okay
soon as I stepped out, felt the door slam
I’m like “man this old man ain't my old man he just some old man"
Momma hit the corner seen me sitting there
Cursing my fathers name while he sit and stare
See, I wasn't deaf to that
Momma took my hand said we never coming back
Screaming he ain't a man
She like don't be like that
All I said was yes ma’am
Last steps I took I looked back
the scar etched my soul
The thought of him fade to black like I never known em

HOOK
How can I recognize a faceless man
Will he remember me?
How can I recognize a faceless man
will he remember meeting me
