about

This one is about knowing that I'm never going to make it big and being okay with it.

lyrics

I've got no excuses, a forever changing aftermath, a real abuse smiling simply through these paragraphs. Stay allusive little boy count your paper cuts, bleed slow or else you're never going to wake them up. I found purity through happiness I thought I lost, smile, grin and bear it, watch the world burn at any cost. Or so they say, I've built my own private apocalypse, that warm Cosby sweater in my head where the logic lives. This is for the grumbling bellies and the activists, all the 1%ers and the section eight family kids. All of the loving mothers working two jobs on welfare and the slut shaming government who wants to take away your health care. I already know the questions but was going to give the answers, should I sit around and watch my family die off of cancer or MS man I love you J-Ro, Will we fix this mess, man I sure fucking hope so.

(Hook) 2x
Say what you will but leave your doubts at the doorsteps I'm never going to go blow, but I already knew that. I'm never going to pop, I already knew that. I'm never going to be big, I already knew that. I'm never going to change your life.

I've got no redeeming qualities, no sympathy, no guarantees that I'm gonna ever shape history. I've sold 400 physicals over the past two years and that's garbage numbers in this world of rap careers. I've built bridges, I've sang lullabies, I've touched down on stages with a tummy full of butterflies. I've lived to love and I've loved and lost, I've re-sewed the heartstrings so I can turn the bitter off.

(Hook) 2x
