LYRICS

verse 1

feeling like Im,
stuck in a prison
wonderful wisdom
I gained through the wanders of living
regardless Im given
the hardest decisions
pardon my penning
Im caught in a system
where the logic is missing
its documents hidden
knowing that they oughta petition
lord they dont listen
they caught up in the corporate "isms"
fraudulent pimping
awful conditions
wear ya suit, 9 to 5 is slavery
these colorful nooses is just a part of tradition
working hard for a living
put in a starving position
the largest of pensions
could never throw me off of my mission
corporate offices
had my creative forest dormant from growing
harvesting, eyes crossed,lost in my vision
now I've fought and I've risen
up outta darkness, Im driven
made me feel like a martian
thats part of awkward religion
I ain't have to be part of walking in marches or sit-ins
to know that I wanted more to offer my partners and children

(chorus)

right or wrong
you're gonna love me
right or wrong

I won't stop, won't stop,
no, no
I won't stop, won't stop
no
see, you're gonna love me, yea, yea


verse 2

but whats even mo' crazy
is how I got here my head's racy
college graduate but Im living in ma's basement
study 5 years on a campus where they was racist
the only black boy in the class, yes I done faced that
Chi city education had me feeling placed back
them white kids learned all of this, way way back
test, they ace that, its just the plain facts,
them lessons straight wack.my stress just came back,
confusion coming cuz I dont fit in this predicament
or maybe it was just my particular curriculum
or maybe the major I chose, aint where Im fated to go
feeling like debating with Satan, and he breakin my soul
taking its toll, making my goal, not to get 3.0, but just
some kinda way to make it through...
now I've fought and I've risen
up outta darkness, Im driven
feel like a martian
thats part some kinda awkward religion


chorus

verse 3

the lights dimming, cause of vices I had
inside my life's prism, no longer colorful
black and white tinted
jealous, envy had my eyes seeing in night vision
I aint let this light blemish turn to a life emblem
advice given from family support and wife pending
put a fight in him,now Im feeling my plight drifting
now that I've fought and I've risen
up outta darkness, Im driven
feel like a martian
thats part some kinda awkward religion


(bridge)
I know I need a job mayne
coming home tired as hell wit migraines
this 9 to 5 aint for me
all of this corporate talk just bore me
but, I know I need a job mayne
coming home tired as hell wit migraines
this 9 to 5 aint for me
all of this corporate talk just bore me

Chorus

afraid.of.heights.




What up yall. Its been a minute since I updated the blog. Afraid of Heights (mixtape I'm soon to drop for those that don't know) is about 80 percent there. Just adding finishing touches to certain songs, locking in features. But we almost there yall. I appreciate everybody that hits me up asking about it, even those that wonder why its taking so long and get annoyed lol. Its sounding special and I can't wait to start performing the songs from it. In the meantime, hope ya'll enjoy the songs I've been dropping here and there and will continue to drop until the tape is officially out.
