I want you to know one thing
I can’t live without you
The watermelon seed you’ve watered each day has grown to hate its rain
The smell
The evil scent you carry
Is somewhere inside of me
Under this shell that shields my life
Will never cover up enough
I see me
I see you
When I am loved you disappear
I feel hatred—you must be near
I run you walk-slow to follow
Knowing, I’m always in reach
“She acts like you”
“She looks like you”
The watermelon cries
For he knows the reason hatred will forever reside in my eyes
Come close daddy take a look
Watch me transform
Do you recognize?
I can’t live without you
Because I am you
Tell me that you’re proud
