The Phoenix by E-Rotic
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.
