The phoenix by E-Town Concrete
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 sh*t i was told.
i get too mad too fast over too much sh*t,
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.
f**k 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 f**k those who oppose and those who's acting like ho's.
i ain't got time for ya'll.
focus my goals.
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?
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.
