It goes, faux pas tryna act like no flaw
Turn it up til it burns that stove top
Mr. Know It All, bad boy showoffs
Red lights, no stops
Carry Me Home by Atmosphere

He’s a very flawed person, but he fronts like nothing’s wrong as a part of his defense mechanism. Until that is, it all boils over. Sarcasm, wit, and swagger, he uses all of it to run away from the real him. And he realizes that he’s gone down a very dangerous path, kind of like driving down a street with red lights but not stopping. Sooner or later, he’s going to come to a crashing halt.

They said the sky was limit free
No, don't trust none of these people
Won't give him enough to love me for me
So even when they welcome me into their kingdom
Can't bring self to believe them
Carry Me Home by Atmosphere

People often say the sky is the limit, but Slug doesn’t trust them. He has his walls up all the time, so even when someone does come along and might seem to care about him, he can’t process that. He hates himself so much that it ruins his relationships with other people.

he never makes himself vulnerable to people, so when they show him affection he doesn’t trust it; cause how can they love you if they haven’t even seen you open? “you can’t love anyone until you love yourself”

Gets some gold spray paint for that lemon Carry Me Home by Atmosphere

He’s covering up his flaws by attempting to camouflage them behind something that looks good at first sight, but everything that glitter’s ain’t gold. It’s also a reference to Atmosphere’s album When Life Gives You Lemons, You Paint That Shit Gold

which came out 3 weeks after this song was released as a part of Sad Clown Bad Spring 12.

Momma, please don't look now
I've gotta walk over people I've took down
It ain't as pretty as you probably think
It's gonna take more than soap and a sink
Carry Me Home by Atmosphere

Slug has admitted before that he’s a very manipulative person. (See “Bleed Slow” or “Me”). He has more success now, and people might think his life is wonderful, but he warns them that it’s not. Despite what it may seem, he’s actually hurt a lot of people on his way here and the guilt he feels is so horrible it can’t be washed away with anything, even soap.

Like Kendrick Lamar said, “My hands are dirty, you worried ‘bout mud in your sink.

It's the sound of emotion enough
To make me wanna hang myself from the rafter that's over my bed
Denvemolorado by Atmosphere

Just hearing about emotions reminds Slug of all the sorrow and pain emotions give and makes him think about suicide by hanging himself.
