I CAN ESCAPE* Lyrics – FRANK OCEAN

[Part I]

[Verse]
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, uh
I see your eyes, eyes fall
You don’t wanna cry, you keep your eyes closed
I could be great, I’m on my way
If I wanna escape, I can escape, uh
Uh, uh, uh, uh
I could be great, I’m on my way
If I wanna escape, I can escape, uh
I could be great, I’m on my way
If I wanna escape, I can escape
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
I see your eyes, I see your eyes fall
You don’t wanna cry so you keep your eyes closed
I could be great, I’m on my way
If I wanna escape, I can escape
I could be great, I’m on my way
If I wanna escape, I can escape, uh
Comin’ out fadin’, turn off your gaze
I had an M5, headlights, I spotted the jakes
Race on a date, race and sedate
I know you lie, you just don’t lie to my face
I keep it graceful
I-I can escape, uh, uh
Comin’ out fadin’, turn off your gaze
Had an M5, headlights, I spotted the jakes
Race on a date, race and sedate
I know you lie, you just don’t lie to my face
I could be great
[Break]
How was that?
That was fire, cool, cool
Yeah

[Part II]

[Verse 1]
I saw your eyes, I saw your eyes fall
You don’t wanna cry, so you kept your eyes closed
I could be great, I’m on my way
If I wanna escape, I can escape
Uh, we was on a date
I take you to Met, kisses outside your favorite
I don’t like fried chicken, I don’t want no Chick-fil-A
And I don’t even rob, niggas, can’t do that job through the day
Comin’ out fake, turn off engage
I had the M5 when the headlights was spotted out the jakes
Race on a date, race and sedate
I know you lie to me, you just don’t lie to my face
I keep it graceful, I’m grateful for it
You just want hate, y’all can get your for it
Y’all wanna fight? You ain’t built for that, uh
That roll call, you can see my hands
Jaws gon’ break, lip gon’ bust, you like
I snuck up on me and ain’t say nothin’
Bit until my tongue gushes, I couldn’t say that
Huh, I ain’t say nothin’
I ain’t say nothin’, uh, uh
I say nothin’, mm, I say nothin’
What you dream for? Dream for, mm
[Verse 2]
Used to play tough with the cops, had ideas (Go, go)
Through the protests, hold me in spot, and I’ll go
Black folk don’t know what talkin’ white mean, but still
Hold two open hands up in the sky, finger quotes
In my gang, the youth, my lames used to smell like Polo tees
Mazel tov toss him a bottle, like what Puff did to Steve
You can’t tote your own weight, then what’s this bullshit even ’bout?
Crystals on your lil’ feet, that’s all that dust protein
Scoop Tremaine from Calabasas in the grey sportscar
We used to cypher in Marc Jacobs, had the library card
That’s got some appearance, silver spoons, the plastic knives and its forks
I was a dog, breathless, chasin’ a car up the street
If I ever catch it, I’ll panic, that’s the flaw in me
Nothin’ ain’t glamorous about growin’ up poor and I eat
Standin’ on the balls of my feet, tryna pray before I sleep

[Chorus]
Go ahead red light, standing at the waterfront district
Now my head on a cushion
Like pink, I’m revvin’, like green, I’m swimmin’
Someone like you, someone like me, ring finger, I’m sure I took it
Wrist like springs, natural springs, waterin’ head, no cookie
Other than me, you and nobody else comin’ between a [?] star
We got the camera on Monday
We made a movie on Tuesday, f*ck
[Verse 3]
We got to look, to look, we never seen stars, it looks so bright
Damn, I try to sleep, can’t get a lot, made dreams bleed into days

The pressure couldn’t stop the bleeding, I started seeing things
Watching out for demons
[?] them like to screen these plays
I was always reading ya
Found some heaven where the sun don’t shine
And I started feeling like p*ssy poppin was the paradigm
Get my dick wet, maritime
[?] immersified [?], babe
All my friends in smoke, leaving some trail behind
Or he rode in front of mine
Its rappers who evolve with time
Reductive in all the rhymes
But that time they enforce the biased
You know, it’s some cops stop and frisk the guy
‘Cause he brown so of course he sized
And all the gangs these lames extorted by
Switch lanes in the Porsche driving
Pass the police Ford Explorer by
Sirens screaming like they four or five
Throwing tantrums on the 405
So I don’t wait, like I’m tryna gain
Don’t hibernate in the winter
That’s where summer bodies are made
Just leg days like a sprinter
With the brown, baby blue interior
Big Bs like GMOs
And they stay on my eyes closed
All I see with my eyes closed
[?] time zones
It’s the same place, different sets, twins, siblings

[Chorus]
Go ahead red light, standing at the waterfront district
Now my head on a cushion
Like pink, I’m revvin’, like green, I’m swimmin’
Someone like you, someone like me, ring finger, I’m sure I took it
Wrist like springs, natural springs, waterin’ head, no cookie
Other than me, you and nobody else comin’ between a [?] star
We got the camera on Monday, we made a movie on Tuesday, f*ck
We got to look, to look, we never seen stars, it look so bright
Prayin’ mantis, flipped by the [?], wrist by the [?], big for a prayin’ hand
Big P, big P, big face, bussdown, still got the [?] in this
I wanna see the money in cash so that I can truly grasp
Makin’ a save, I did a favor, big for a prayin’ hand

[Bridge]
Big P, big P, big P, big P
Yeah, huh, big P
Speakin’ of God, at ten years old, I switched church homes
Speakin’ of God, speakin’ of God, speakin’ of God
Yeah, hmm
Don’t wanna talk me off the ledge, mmm
Gotta get in my, mmm
Gotta get in my own head
Ooh, yeah
You can go there, yeah
Whenever you feel like it, duh, nuh, huh, nuh
Mm, the first, though, maybe keep it in four, though
Uh-huh

[Verse 4]
Speakin’ of God, at ten years old, I switched church homes
The bishop was tweakin’, and we was Baptist
So how you a bishop? Like, technically speakin’
You drove a white Rolls, me and my family was tight, bros
Difference between havin’ a home and not havin’ a home is a tightrope
Vistin’ Catholic churches, the pastor was quiet as mice, so
Minister spoke on a microphone
They had no choir, so silent, I thought I heard Christ, cold
Need a messiah, run out the house from [?], sprintin’, route runnin’
I figured I’d go to the East with my team for some peace and quiet
I ended up runnin the streets with my cousin sittin’ in the back
Listenin’ to beats, schemin’ on schemes that can’t even pass
It’s strategy, murder your cells, I fall according to stats
I pray that the plots clearin’, thick, it’s bulletproof glass
So much where the death is, the visions of days
You keep speakin’ of death, it starts to seem’ like a new car you’re gonna buy
Starts poppin’ up on your way to work
See it all the time, always passin’ by
Call it plan Beetle, Bug, yeah, it’s on sight, man, they’re gonna punch
Runnin’ late to [?], made the plane wait ’cause it’s no rush
Calls for no one oceans from above, kinda look like bubbles on the tub
Like…
