lyrics

Now, if I start to cry, I swear to God I might lose my nerve
It’s all traces of me, inside shadows and blurred
I’ve been travelling for too damn long now, recognize home is where I stop and fall down
If it’s close to Waldbaum’s, train runs regular, nature of the neighborhood is liberal and secular
Armpit of America, every day measure of where I should be and where my rhyme book never was
Yeah, I’m trying to exceed the local, take the dope vocals make the focal point global
Avoid going postal with a .22 and trench coat, walk around this oval with a blank stare and headphones
Welcome to the dead zone, and moments are taken, everybody shuts down like their souls are forsaken
Getting harder to breathe with arteries that are breakin’
I should take mine and leave but I sold them to Satan, its where I live

From the outside in, I break through and under your skin
But no matter how I extend I always end where I begin
Moving out from within, what I give, you take everything in
Still I end where I begin, I find myself home again

It’s getting dangerous, and maybe just I could believe an angel is over my shoulder, laziness holding me back and saying this.
Tragic, the world is baby-less, raising themselves atheist, I pray its worth saving, the planet was once apes and shit.

Nothing ever changes. It all stays so stagnant, painted in the corner ‘cause I chose to back in
Relaxing, I’m feeling like the only lone horseman, proceed with caution, live life like I’m lost when
I should be an abortion, parents were divorced and people treated me like a red-headed little orphan
That’s why every so often my coffin is visualized crossing into the skies
Ryan lived once, here lies Verbal’s physical
Walked around with mortals, now I’ll show’em what my spirit do
Peering through panes of glass, living on sinner’s time
Steering through blades of grass until the finish line. Yeah.

From the outside in, I break through and under your skin
But no matter how I extend I always end where I begin
Moving out from within, what I give, you take everything in
Still I end where I begin, I find myself home again

Now it’s easy to say, harder still to achieve
Every piece of me is screaming this is where we should be
Yeah, it’s sometimes hard, and nothing’s coming for free
Take a knee is not an option. It’s not an option
Now I’m watching as the days pass, smoking from the same stash
Unaware of life until the day those two planes crashed
Gained fast perspective, way past respect, it was reverence in the form of strong steadfast reflection
And now my anthem is “live life now”
Stand strong behind words I say and fight proud
Observe with a watchful eye and write down
Spit it back over tracks ‘til they turn the lights
OK, get the game out, I read the rules, got a piece
Trying to skip jail, straight to GO, Mic Monopoly
Understand what’s not for me, manage money properly
Probably I’ll find the right route, that’s how it’s got to be

From the outside in, I break through and under your skin
But no matter how I extend I always end where I begin
Moving out from within, what I give you take everything in
Still I end where I begin, I find myself home again
