lyrics

I say I'm speaking that real, I spit it just how I live it.
I don't pray enough but when I do I know that god hears it.
Should be locked up in prison, for the shit that I did.
Guess there is a plan for me I just don't know what it is.
And I say, sometimes I'm lost, still I keep moving forward.
Trying to turn the lights on for my future my past is horrid.
I won't bore you with stories, that's a need to know basis.
In a way you could say I'm sleep cuz I'm steadily dream chasing.
Sometimes life is a bitch, gotta strangle that hoe.
Really don't have respect for those who are quick to let go.
I'm a soldier by choice, so salute when you see me.
Got the mind of a sniper, so think twice if you're scheming.
Heart is beating only realism, through my veins.
Since I put the liquor down I started dealing with pain.
Been numb for so long, I forgot how to feel. You might see me smiling but my heart is cold ad steel.
***I got no time for you haters, I got enough that I deal with. Please just stay out of my sight cuz you ain't right for my spirit. I got love in my soul, I got hate in my heart. I get confused in my mind, sometimes can't tell them apart. Feels like I'm trapped in a struggle. Will it ever be easy? Constant fight with my demons. Deep inside I am screaming. So I gotta stay strong, it'll get worse fore it's better. I see clear skies in the distance just gotta get through this weather***
My baby momma won't let me, see my daughter she tripping.
Holding my past against me, that's no longer how I'm living.
Moved to another state, won't tell me where they stay.
Her new man talking reckless now that they moved far away.
Really what can I say? That there is outta my control.
Yea I know but I won't incriminate myself on a song.
Love my daughter to death and she knows that I love her.
But sometimes I thinking, I should've wore a rubber.
I blame that on her mother, she showed me how a bitch is.
Women ain't all bitches, so don't get that line twisted.
My advise to you is, pay attention to the signs.
See the red flag, pull her to the side lines. Show her the game plan, if she ain't rocking with it,
Nip that shit in the bud, watch the rocks she'll be kicking.
Bitches can be so spiteful, my best friend turned to rival.
Put my hand on the bible, hope I don't get another one like you.
***I got no time for you haters, I got enough that I deal with. Please just stay out of my sight cuz you ain't right for my spirit. I got love in my soul, I got hate in my heart. I get confused in my mind, sometimes can't tell them apart. Feels like I'm trapped in a struggle. Will it ever be easy? Constant fight with my demons. Deep inside I am screaming. So I gotta stay strong, it'll get worse fore it's better. I see clear skies in the distance just gotta get through this weather***
I pay my own rent and bills, some of y'all know how that feels.
Yea, I live check to check, its like I'm fighting uphill.
So I invest in myself cuz I got little support. I can't wait for the chapter where I get paid off my dope.
I put my life in these lines, like my life's on the line.
Most of these rappers be lying, making it harder to get mine.
So I just keep on pushing. Life won't slow down for no one.
Once that casket is closed up, ain't no doing it over.
Make the best out ya business. Stay the hell out of mine!
Unless you helping me grind, lets not waste each others time.
Life is all about survival, I see it as a jungle. Try my best not to hit the dirt even though I might stumble.
I be hearing the mumbles from you non believers.
So I stand up and firm, for the underachievers.
I got that weight on my back but I still carry the load.
I chose to feed my soul when I came to that fork in the road.
***I got no time for you haters, I got enough that I deal with. Please just stay out of my sight cuz you ain't right for my spirit. I got love in my soul, I got hate in my heart. I get confused in my mind, sometimes can't tell them apart. Feels like I'm trapped in a struggle. Will it ever be easy? Constant fight with my demons. Deep inside I am screaming. So I gotta stay strong, it'll get worse fore it's better. I see clear skies in the distance just gotta get through this weather***
