1st Verse: Back in the day I could never pay to play, and in a way it made me 'poor boy bitter'. Today I get paid to play and paved the way w/ two bare hands, pitching no hitters.. I blow better. No need to listen close, cause this here throat, It Never No Stutter! Singing at the rain but i'm still a stone spitter. So centered, no pennant, let's go get it. Nowadays we're forced to pace aggression, up hill, both ways, in any direction. Waging war, every battle's precious. We don't pick fights, we take punches. chorus: Dying, dying. dead since the final factory faded to greener grasses still alive and now surprises so alive and no surprises no alarms and no surprises here.
There's many rhythms on a record, only one groove. Beatshot bastards, back a show to boot. Lake effect, wait a sec,
Finished texting Jessica, i'll miss my sisters but i gotta go. Parked at Xoximilco's, left my keys for Mario. I'm in the barrio as Mexicans inspect my rusty bicycle; expecting a spectacle they'll respect the exit I pull. Pulled out on to Bagley barely able to pedal. Puddles of pity welled up in me, didn't see that rig - it nearly hit me. Couldn't hear his skidding tires singing, my head's already ringing from this thing inside telling me to take a ride. Pushing on I'm dashing past the border patrol, rolling fast pace and they gave chase, but i'm already gone. Got to reach the peak of bridge, the last escape for this helpless kid. I didn't know which way to take, luckily my GPS did...
I been told a thousand times i'm out of time...
Had the parachute pants as 4th grader banana seat bike sporting space invaders picked on by chicks in the 5th grade spilling on my lunch, calling me a mistake bus stop beefin with a bully dotted his eye, now i'm sitting in the cool seat high tops are PayLess, so i'm stressed... hiding inside at recess off the bus one way to go straight to Wild Bill's for that 40cent Faygo wet brown bag, banana seat bike, bottle broke and i'm balling till I can't see right Yo, Monique told pops and he's pissed raced her home and stepped in dog shit walked in and got my ass whipped cause i was 10 yrs old doing dumb shit.
there's several different levels of hell for the helpless rapper apt to submission after capture, into duck sickin coward, quick to give in latching at his captor with that butt kissin stuck with cupping hands when asking for a pot to piss in prison is a vision, compared to freedom how he lives it, as for bringing home bacon he's taking breaks in momma's kitchen given half a chance at mannishness, he says "wait" as he changes monthly bandages and smashes on cake even my gayest brethren take exception, no lying, like, "who's this whining thumb sucking, crying, something in my eyeing type actor with the half ass accent? - that's a rapper??" Fuck this 2 bit braggard's lilly white flag swagger.. he'd rather give up than get up, so toss him out. weigh me down let you drown, man - push him off the bow! you rather give up than get up? get out now before we chop your soft hands off and stuff 'em in your mouth.
chorus: I've seen the world in all it's pain still i'd rather have you back because when it's all said and done, i wanna be where you're at
