I spend my days and nights in the 614 now.
Trying to find a better life for me.
Instead im constantly sent down to my knees.
A constant state of prayer as I struggle to rediscover the real me.
Ive lost too many times in this game.
Its time I crawl out from under this rock of shame.
Im a rock but I become smoke when I’m introduced to flames.
Through the skank you can’t see me but if you find me I still burn the same.
So let’s clean the glass and rediscover the real me.
I spend my days and nights in another state now.
Slowly rising from my knees just to sway and fall off my feet.
But I won’t give up now ive come too far to admit defeat
Think ive found someone with whom I can relate now.
But nothing can be better until we clean the slate and start brand new.
I can only hope from this a better life will shine through.
