he was a kid with bright dreams, eatin
up ice cream, woke up to new sights seen
self esteem was pretty low, wearin shitty
clothes, watchin rap videos on his tippy
toes, pity grows little did he know
they didn't think about the pain that he didn't show, no
benefits, went to church but the only genesis
he knew didn't work
without a T.V., knee deep
in a broken home, sat and wrote poems, hopin
one day hip hop wouldn't encourage gun play
never knew dopin fiends, a soft spoken
teen, awoke from sleep with all these broken dreams
heart of gold that turned cold and shattered
old and battered a man that was supposed to matter
he had it all, could've played more basketball
but he passed life up as he laughed it off
he had passion dogg, back involved
with life, but now old problems involve his mite
they say a therapist is so imparitive
his days careless and his narratives aware of this
his only downfall on this round ball
was himself, he never believed in himself
hes pleadin for help not knowin what to ask for
his minds been cloudy, he's runnin out the back door
why should he rap more? starin at a dashboard
lookin at the wheel, thinkin he needs a crash course
to make the pain go, but its the same old
shit, if he changed flows will he blame those
whips and chains with pits of flames
Lookin back on his life like a picture framed
they say he's so blessed, but he's ill
that how he feels, lookin for a re-fill
not of medication, but meditation
he doesn't need better patience, just dedication
he needs a break, mind so weak
the rains getting in like his pancho leaks
pronto he trys to cover up other stuff
Yeah he's got his chin up from all the fuckin uppercuts
he's been taken, he's been shaken
bathed in the blood of sin he's been escapin
stopped smokin, stopped laughin
in and out of rap, he goes and gets back in
old actions, new problems
you got the answers? then you solve em
I gave up, gave in and regretted
the last eight years of my life in a second...
i cant remember what bein alive felt like
my heart was warm enough to melt ice
