“I want to take a year off, I want to be a normal family that doesn’t have this world wide youtube audience—and I’m not complaining you guys… We’re not done—we’re gonna kill it in the next 5-months. I wanna know what it’s like to not to be a YouTuber. I wanna know what it’s like to not do these videos every day. It’s a weird thing.The thing that we do of making a video and be open with so many people is not ordinary. It takes it’s toll. There’s blessings to it but there’s a bunch of down sides and scary things to it.”

WATSKY LYRICS
“Lovely Thing Suite: Roses”
[Chorus]
Don’t let my ghost drag you down
If you don’t see me around
It doesn’t mean that I fell
Yeah I’m doing well
I got some roses to smell
I hope you smile when I’m gone
It means I had the strength to move on
To find another story to tell
To answer the bell
I got some roses to smell

[Verse 1]
When magic’s happening my habit’s been coiling up a memory and trappin it right
In the cavity of my ribs, like the doors of a cabinet might
But you won’t hold onto a shadow just by grabbing it tight
Set it free and let it back in the light
Never out of my heart, even when out of my sight
Leaving is s’posed to be hard
Man I thought it so was selfish of people I love to keep falling out of my life
But now I know
No I don’t take it personal
If you got a really lovely place to go
I will chase my goals, yeah, to make me whole
Cause it’s urgent we love and be loved
I’ve begun to scrub up with detergent to shine up my soul

[Chorus]
Don’t let my ghost drag you down
If you don’t see me around
It doesn’t mean that I fell
Yeah I’m doing well
I got some roses to smell
I hope you smile when I’m gone
It means I had the strength to move on
To find another story to tell
To answer the bell
I got some roses to smell

[Verse 2]
Cause every screen that we tap is screaming that bigger is better
Better is how you make yourself matter
But matter is fleeting
Am I living to feed a machine that I’m blind to see?
No point in hiding my pride if there’s no privacy
I’ve already dedicated too much of my time to trying to get my followers up
And crying out for attention
And sleeping around to mend a hollow crater inside of me
Knowing well that it don’t mean shit
Going to the well for another cheap dopamine hit
I’m done being a bitch to ambition
I’m already rich
I got a head that’s full of million dollar questions
And the length of it
Is I don’t need the courage to work
I want the strength to quit

To answer the bell
I got some roses to smell
