“True say/ I want and I need/ To let go/ Use my time to be free/ It’s like it’s always what you like/ It’s always what you like/ Why it’s always what you like?/ It’s always what you like, huh/ Ain’t no more actin’, man that forecast say I should just let me grow/ No more red light for me, baby, only green, I gotta go/ Pack my past up in the back, oh, let my future take a hold/ This is what I gotta do, can’t be regretting when I’m old,” the song’s lyrics read.
Lil Nas X also tweeted out his album’s cover art which features the colors of the rainbow displayed on a building.
“Deadass thought i made it obvious,” he tweeted.
