Excavate lyrics

Fill my lungs up, pour my heart out, peel my bones away
Grab my window, shut my [?] out, excavate my pain

[Verse 1: Macklemore]
If I could read the world my notebook and these thoughts in it
Would they judge me or love me for what I've written?
Tryna get closer to spirt that enters the body
It's the vessel like I'm not in it
In 50-something years, I won't be here
There'll be a kid with some headphones covering his ears
Walking 'round a hallway, dreaming of ideas
Find himself in the sound 'cause music is a mirror
What you looking for? What you headed towards?
What's your name worth when they mention yours?
When you leave here, are you stepping forward?
Can you remember your intention when they question yours?
They're gonna question yours, they're gonna question yours
I've been at rock bottom and I'm headed North
If you don't love yourself, what's the respect for?
If you don't love life, the check won't correct yours
Excavate

[Chorus: Saint Claire]
Fill my lungs up, pour my heart out, peel my bones away
Grab my window, shut my [?] out, excavate my pain
And I found peace, and I found peace
And I found peace

[Verse 2: Macklemore]
I had this vision of my death
Surrounded by people I love and respect
And the baby blue Cadillac hearse
Pulling me 'round the block that I rep
The greatest fear that I've ever kept is dying with regrets
Like was I just alive for success
Or did I leave a better life for the rest?
My greatest achievement isn't the dollars
My greatest achievement isn't the followers
My greatest achievement isn't the accolades
My greatest achievement is my daughter
Waking up in the morning, being a father
Watching the light kiss her eyelids
Hearing her sing along to Chance
And being like, yeah, that's my kid
The light started to glow
And the saxophone [?] train started to blow
[?] laying in the snow, turn on my headphones
Couple miles to go before I run out of road
Excavate

[Chorus: Saint Claire]
Fill my lungs up, pour my heart out, peel my bones away
Grab my window, shut my [?] out, excavate my pain
And I found peace, and I found peace
And I found peace, and I found peace

[Outro: Macklemore]
Hold me up into the light and study every part of me
I'm an open book, no, I don't mind, but sometimes I'm hard to read
Just flesh and bone, I'm headed home
But this life is so hard to lead
But who am I when they cut the lights and nobody's watching me?
Hold me up into the light and study every part of me
I'm an open book, no, I don't mind, but sometimes I'm hard to read
Just flesh and bone, I'm headed home
But this life is so hard to lead
But who am I when they cut the lights and nobody's watching me?
Gemini
