lyrics

I try to find my way through this game today.
But I came away in the same old state.
Feeling like I've been paved in place, I try to escape.
Try to make my way through the next gate.
But the maze remains, and the challenge is the same.
And the fire in me can't stop me
From battling the flames and I happen to remain
In the same spot I been at since impact had me on this train.
Birthed with the gift and the curse
It feels like I sit in reverse.
I was given this Earth and a mind to be scriptin a verse
But the same mind pulls me into the hearse.
Why is that? I don't need it,
I feel like I've been through the worse and still beat it.
I'm still bleeding but I've survived the days.
I'm alive, it's time to arise awake.


(Hook)
I can make it, I know, I can take it, this flow,
Next level, I can break it, fa sho,
I can do it. I can make my way on through it.
Let myself go and get lost in the music.
I can make it, I know, I can take it, this flow,
Next level, I can break it, fa sho,
I can do it. I can make my way on through it.
Let myself go and get lost in the music.


Is that it? the light at the end of the tunnel?
It might be the end of my struggles.
I've had to fight and defend it with hustle
Would be nice to just ascend through the funnel.
And find myself chilling up at the top.
Too often the coffin's been my building blocks.
Trapped where the ceiling drops, feeling locked
Inside a ride with wheels that never stop.
Just the same cycles, same repetitions.
Same clock I punch in out of every rhythm.
Next position just the same as the last,
See I've taken the path from the stains on the grass.
But my aim is to pass on through and just be.
Put my stamp on my moves and see what's me.
I might find myself if I give it a chance.
Time to open up, rip up the plans.


(Hook)
I can make it, I know, I can take it, this flow,
Next level, I can break it, fa sho,
I can do it. I can make my way on through it.
Let myself go and get lost in the music.
I can make it, I know, I can take it, this flow,
Next level, I can break it, fa sho,
I can do it. I can make my way on through it.
Let myself go and get lost in the music.


Man, it's time for me to just be.
It's time for me to just breathe,
For me to just see what life can be all about.
Throw aside distractions, live in the now.
Swim through the clouds, take a chance in the game.
Bask in the sunshine, dance in the rain.
Advance through the pain cause there's more than this.
So much more to writing what the story is.
Primed for the future heading towards it with
An open mind, flows and rhymes, all engorged in it.
Gorgeousness like I always envisioned.
From my first breath awake on this prism.
Made for this mission to create compositions
And blend them with the bass and the rhythm.
I'm in my time and space in this existence
Feeling at home, I'm staying within this.
