Born June 14th, in the year of 87,
I never ever thought I'd make it past the age 11,
When I was only 7 my daddy went up to heaven,
And left me all alone in the gutter just chashin cheddar.
My momma she got cancer, but slowly she got better
The virus it left her body, but pain remains forever,
At least that's what she'd always say, everyday, and all damn
Day, lift that bottle to her face, drink the pain in her life
A great example to display, kids don't know the right way,
Kids don't know the wrong way, I had to find my own way, it seems
Took the long way, definitly the wrong way, hit that bong all
Mixed in X and foul play, built the man you see today, lost in
In disarray, life for me aint been the same, aint no jokes or
And games, prolly go down amidst the flames, ashamed and proud
Of my last name, no pointing fingers here, I'm the only one I got
That's all that I could ever say, prolly all I'll ever say,
Like the blood that in my veins, when cut apart, I bleed
Stains, Marks and scars build the soul and depth of my brain.
Fall like the rain from the sky, kept myself up in bed every
'Oh God Why?' No answer, no remorse, no regrets, a picture aint
Cause eventually, we all start to forget, it fades away, and
abrubtly we all
Start to see, the effects of the trail or path we're following,
It's not the life
That you lead, or the road that you take, It's the solution to
That all of us make. And we can stop and take a breather, a pause
or a break,
But the world keeps spinning, it aint designed to wait. Don't
hate, don't waste
Time of the day, get up get out, and get ya ass paid, songs
played, life made.
Music is force, hour after hour life's a verse, a bridge and a
A hook, I'm hooked, It's the road I done took, and I'm'a keep on
And back I aint gonna look. Too much pain too much drama too much
For my momma, not enough for my daddy, I can't believe he just
But it must of been tough, not seein his son's, having himself an
And a lack of the funds. It's ashame cause he could've been
But un-married I was born so his job be came struggling, barely
And I hate it cause I swear the man was a saint, life just caught
him by the nose
And it made him insane. I just wish that he were smarter and aint
That route, life would of been much different, man there aint no
I can't yell at the dead so to this beat I'm'a shout...
I need to get out...
My Life, all the pain and the stife,
It's getttin a whole lot darker,
I need the light
To catch me as I fall,
Wish I wasn't there but I lived it.
I witnessed it all.
The shit I saw, No one should ever have to see.
The rise and fall, of my entire family.
It's like someone shook the tree,
And our branch fell off,
When I started to stray
Is when all hope was lost...
Life goes on though, that's all I can say, people are born and
And people pass away, The in-between time, that's for your own
In a hundred years from now you life will hold no meaning.
Unless you step up NOW, and make your mark, this is my
It's just a shot in the dark. Keep trying, don't stop, it aint so
bad, take what you got,
And think about what you could of had, cause with the good there
And with the bad there is good, it's up to you to decide whih one
Settle for, take in, live with, obey, it's up to you and you
alone, you'll find the way.
I did, I promise.
