This was probably my most personal song on the mixtape. Often I feel alone even in crowded places and I want to socialize but can't bring myself to do it sometimes.

Do you talk because you have something to say or because you have to say something?


:14 verse
wanna be alone, but i still feel lonely
its like the feeling might be mutual, like nobody want me
and i know it aint true, still got my day 1 homies
but if i fall, they got me, or they gon flake like tony?
man i guess we'll never know
if i fall, i'll never show
put up walls like mexico
cold shoulder, eskimo
solitary confined to my mind
sometimes man i wish that we could just rewind
back to the time when i could trust my bloodline
if they ain't stealing my identity, they telling lies
they say blood is thicker than water
but think about what's really harder to swallow
that's why i never really was one to follow
if you tried to me leave breadcrumbs, I'll still just wander
and i aint mad at ya, im just protecting myself
and its cool if im understood by nobody else

1:03 hook
even when its crowded i still feel all alone
so many thoughts that be racing in my dome
aint being rude when i dont pick up my phone
just try to understand that i prefer it on my own
i guess im introverted
its about time you learned it
i guess im introverted
in case you never heard it
i guess im introverted
in case you felt deserted
i guess im introverted
i guess im introverted

1:27 verse
Even when I sit down, I feel like I stand out
was like that as a boy, same even as a man now
wanna get to know you, but i might have a breakdown
considered going homeless before i took a handout
fuck small talk, while yall talk, im writing raps on my phone
just rather not talk if i dont know em
imagine if they never let kanye into his zone
so give me some room kinda like a traffic cone
not that i hate people, dont know what to do with em
i know we both one in the same- we both human
a pointless conversation is not what im pursuing
you be like hi, my name's clint, how you doin?
i dont care. i dont mean no harm
might think im the worst guy like gambino song
the fact of the matter is you couldn't be more wrong
so instead of bothering you, i had to write this song
