lyrics

First off change everything you think you know is wrong
Change the way you think about things when you write your songs
Change the only constant and death is very long
Forever in your shadow
Forever is never gone
I love you like a broken arm
Sick of the jokes you chokin on
Call me a bad actor and all cops are bastards
No gods, no masters
No managers, no handlers
No catcalls, no showboatin or panderin
Never cancel a show
Even when I need to go home
Girl cryin on the phone
Like daddy Ross, where are you
What are you doin
Another relationship in ruins
Cause I never stop moving and I never stop losin friends

A lot of my best friends died too young
From Drugs and suicide
So when I say do or die
I mean it
Od'ed too many times to get another chance
Don't believe in signs
Or anything meant to be
Only here cause my heart didn't give up when the drugs tried to kill me
So now I show people what it's like to be the real me
Whatever real is
WhatevzForevz kids
You wanna be here in the now put a mic to your lips and sing it
And tell your favorite rapper to bring it
And I'll probably listen very intently and tell him he did a good job
I don't wanna be another person full of hate
I practice compassion and work on a clean slate
Never rap attackin
I don't dis or bash em
I just spit my truth
Try to connect with what's inside you
Is this really art
Or self-gratification
Did I do my part
Or just put on makeup
This world is so made up
All your shit is fake
Mountains of plastic in man made lakes
Poisonous food on lead dinner plates
Born to fuckin lose in these reindeer games
They think I'm insane cause I won't take part
Whoever they choose, I will not bow to em
You're not my president, you're not my leaders
You're not my government, you're not my teachers
I was born here
But I can die with some dignity
Even if I'm shitkickin till I stop breathin
I won't stop fightin and tryin to defeat them
Wanna be a good person
But don't know what that is
I never was a child, just a fuckin kid
And I killed off myself before I knew what life was
That's why they call me dead
That's why I want love
That's why I wander so much
And don't know how to trust
Whether broke and on dope
Or rich and all alone
I see us all the same
We all wanna go home
We all suffer
Even if we try to hide it
Inside is a black hole
Started as a tadpole
Now I'm chasin death like it stole my money, asshole
Can't wait forever to be a better bad soul
I miss my mother
I miss my uncle Danny
Wish I could known the person my dad was
Before the crack rock and skol vodka
I'm tryin to forgive you
And also myself
That's why I'm doin everything I can to get help
Focus on my health, destroy the self
All we got's each other
And I miss jarryd too
I miss so many people
But that's nothin new
Gotta let go so I don't miss you
So I don't miss us
So I don't miss life
Open up my eyes and cut that kite
Cut that kite!
Cut That KITE!
