E-Town Concrete - The Phoenix lyrics
so i take another step, and one more breath
closer to death. there's things going on in this
world that got me stressed. lately i find myself
searching my soul. looking for signs of life,
a warmth in the cold. i'm young and restless
and they want me to fold. i'm hard headed, i
ain't never did shit i was told. i get too mad too
fast over too much shit, but i put too much heart
into the words i spit. maybe i'm too proud,
maybe i scream too loud...but what goes in,
must come out. and i'm hurting inside. i can't
show it. obstructed by pride. i ain't being hard i
just don't know why. fuck tomorrow if i live or
i die. who comes first? you not before i. i'm still
a ways off from my lofty goals, so fuck those
who oppose and those who's acting like ho's. i
ain't got time for ya'll. focus my goals. i chose.
c'mon now, you just write ryhmes...i recite lifelines.
you're in it for the long haul...i'm in it for a lifetime.
let a brother try to come between me and mine.
i'll lie cheat and steal to keep feeding mine. that's
the deal and that's for real, by any means. am i
wrong because i want the finer things in life?
hell no. take this world by storm.
all i ever wanted was a taste of. all i ever wanted
was a piece of what i could not have.
