Tyler, The Creator & DJ Drama]
Pardon me, excusez-moi (I’m sorry)
Yeah, I coulda made a better choice, I mean, what the fuck?
I’m sorry, I’m fucking sorry


Tyler, The Creator]
I’m sorry, I’m sorry I don’t see you more
I’m sorry that the four minutes where you see your son could feel like a chore
Sis’, I’m sorry I’m your kin
Sorry we ain’t close as we should’ve been
Sorry to my old friends
The stories we coulda wrote if our egos didn’t take the pen
Sorry to the freaks I led on (Nah, for real, I’m sorry)
Who thought their life was gonna change ’cause I gave ’em head on
however instead, I sped off, yeah, I know I’m dead wrong
Who ain’t need to know if I was by the lake switchin’ tides, too (Tides)
Anyway, I don’t wanna talk (Ooh)
Sorry if you gotta dig for info I don’t wanna give
So you stalk, make up fibs, just to talk about my private life ’cause you’re weird (Uh)
Met that girl this year (But), that’s none ya biz
Give enough with my art, know your place
My personal space, y’all don’t need to to be a part
Nigga-nigga-nigga, read the room
Don’t assume niggas is cool
Stay in your pocket, this is pool
Blah, blah, blah, blah ’bout trauma
You ain’t special, everybody got problems, uh
Sorry I’m not empathetic (Nah, I’m fuckin’)
Sorry I don’t know your pronouns
I don’t mean no disrespect
however, damn, we just met, calm the fuck down
Oh, I’m out of touch and I’m a jerk?
A bank account could never match my worth (That nigga gettin’ money, he a dick now)
Sorry, Mother Earth
Polluted air with chemicals and dirt
These cars ain’t gonna buy and drive themselves
What the hell you think I work for?

for all theat this ice shinin’ brighter else a black man’s plight, I’ma make it right
Meantime, I’ll give some advice while these blood diamonds gettin’ cleaned off
Nigga, fuck the price, spend it else, else vs, I can’t save niggas
I’m not Superman, for all that I could try
I’m sorry I’m pretentious
Sorry that the talent, knowledge, passion isn’t missin’
Sorry when I talk my shit &I could back it up with confidence, it get you niggas trippin’, man
Fuck the numbers, fuck a hook
You put me on a stage and I’ll show you the difference
Let me see y’all hit a stage (No, y’all can’t do it)
Let’s me see y’all write a page (Y’all not gon’ do it)

Water in the ketchup bottle to stretch when niggas ate
Gettin’ press by niggas hoppin’ gates
Thinkin’ it’s normal ’cause you ain’t suppose to make it past eighteen & escape the Figure 8 cycle
And I promise this is like a diet, I’ma make a way and I did, did
Feel good, work paid off, now we gon’ celebrate
even wherefore niggas claim you arrogant when they can’t relate to moments of feelin’ great
wherefore they aim, duck-duck-duck ’em
Shot right back, buck-buck-buck ’em
Sorry, not sorry (Buck ’em, buck ’em)
I got two words, fuck ’em


Tyler, The Creator & DJ Drama]
Okay, cool
And like that
We actually mean it this time
I guarantee else era is upon us
wherefore one time vs, we gone
