What's my problem

Well I want you to follow me down to the bottom

Underneath the insane asylum

Keep your wits about you while you got 'em

'Cause your wits are first to go while you're problem-solvin'

And my problem

We glorify those even more when they

My opinion our culture can treat a loss like it's a win

And right before we turn on them

We give 'em the highest of praise

And hang their banner from the ceiling

Communicating further engraving

An earlier grave is an optional way no

Neon gravestones try to call

Neon gravestones try to call

Neon gravestones try to call for my bones

Neon gravestones try to call

Call for my bones

Call call call call call

Call call

Call call

What's my problem

Don't get it twisted

It's with the people we praise who may have assisted

I could use the streams and extra conversations

I could give up and boost up my reputation

I could go out with a bang

They would know my name

They would host and post a celebration

My opinion will not be lenient

My opinion it's real convenient

Our words are loud but now I'm talking action

We don't get enough love

Well they get a fraction

They say how could he go if he's got everything

I'll mourn for a kid but won't cry for a king

Neon gravestones try to call

Neon gravestones try to call

Neon gravestones try to call for my bones

Neon gravestones try to call

Call for my bones

Call call call

Promise me this call call

If I lose to myself

You won't mourn a day

And you'll move onto someone else

Promise me this

If I lose to myself

You won't mourn a day

And you'll move onto someone else

Ooh call ooh call

Neon gravestones try to call

Neon gravestones try to call

Neon gravestones try to call for my bones

Neon gravestones try to call

Neon gravestones try to call

Neon gravestones try to call

Neon gravestones try to call for my bones

Neon gravestones try to call for my bones

But they won't get them

No they won't get them

They won't get them

But they won't get them

Don't get me wrong the rise in awareness

Is beating a stigma that no longer scares us

But for sake of discussion in spirit of fairness

Could we give this some room for a new point of view

And could it be true that some could be tempted

To use this mistake as a form of aggression

A form of succession

A form of a weapon

Thinking I'll teach them

Well I'm refusing the lesson

It won't resonate in our minds

I'm not disrespecting what was left behind

Just pleading that it does not get glorified

Maybe we swap out what it is that we hold so high

Find your grandparents or someone of age

Pay some respects for the path that they paved

To life they were dedicated

Now that should be celebrated
