lyrics

[Intro: Byron Henderson]
Yeah (whatever, whatever, whatever)
Ugh (whatever, whatever, whatever)
Yo
Ugh
Yo

[Verse: Byron Henderson]
How many times can I revisit the same topic?
Till I paint the picture vivid enough for the people to feel as if it’s a vision they’re seeing through my optics
Animosity building, why stop it? (yup)
Man, if I could be realer, why not then? (yup)
Because I have a story to tell y’all
A warrior’s tale, constantly worried he’ll fail all
Discouraging thoughts haunt, though he never fell off that cliff
Let’s get it started, 9/29/08, I’ve been a target
Whether in New Orleans or when I set it off with the bars in the morning at Meisler
Advisory’s boring
It’s hard to be clean around all of this garbage
As mad as I seem, know it’s all in the moment
If college ain’t for me, then I wonder how far will I get in life and this day and age with only diplomas
Ironic how we bonded through music to find an escape from the trauma and lies blurring lines every day
Living double lives, no one ever realized it
Skin flawless for now, but they’re still riding the wave of your tears
Rumors spread by your peers haunt you whenever mentioned on some Tony Todd ish
Is emptiness a feeling you feel, is it real?
Or is something else killing you in the process?
Common knowledge, I’m not the most positive person outside of when I rhyme
Obviously, my time is seemingly when I’m with you, that’s when I shine
There’ll never be a bigger truth, cause if I signed off
Ending my time on this planet, as depressed as I am, I don’t want to plan it
More so than mine, I know that your soul is damaged
Let the beat go on, I know you’re sure to panic
Cause you’ll stay for me if I stay for you
That’s what you said to me after reading this fan mail, like everything these people say is proof
If we can save each other, maybe we can save them too
Never thought a freestyle in seventh grade would bring someone amazing
It’s great, I don’t have to unmask you, but that’s only half the battle
Whether you’re privy to matters at hand, what would you say if I was to ask you...

[Hook: Byron Henderson]
Will any of these songs ever really matter when I’m buried and gone?
A hopeless forever for me
Cause I’m more than tired, I’m just out here trying to be immortalized
For the better, trying to better all your lives
Only thing that’s ever really on my mind is...

Will any of these songs ever really matter when I’m buried and gone?
A hopeless forever for me
Cause I’m more than tired, I’m just out here trying to be immortalized
For the better, trying to better all your lives
Only thing that’s ever really on my mind is...

[Verse: Byron Henderson]
How many bullets did you spare me from?
How much time would you say I have left, not too many of my people see 21
I’m well aware and plus, got the mentality of being something bigger
How many people you know really draw and reconsider?
Part of me is bitter, all of me is wishing you the best
Guard each river with your life, because it’s a mess
Nonetheless, I could never be ashamed of my color, race, whatever
I love it, though I think, it brings anger to see us so estranged
Rina, that’s why I cling to you, I’m helping Tony just hoping that he can change
True, you only met him to get a whiff of a winner
Nothing but a fallen angel reeking the scent of a sinner
When you pay so much attention to your blemishes, what makes you any different than any alcoholic filling his liver with poison?
You’re hearing the voices, but how did you lose you?
Cause you’re the only person you have something to prove to
You know if bridges burn, it’s because of their choices
Apologize to Alyson, and tell her the truth
Who would have thought it would arrive to this moment in time?
We’re killing ourselves cause we’re alive
And we’re tired of life indirectly being about death
Wondering what it’s like to survive, without debt
The people I grew up around don’t know about that
More than half ain’t make it out, and now they got that mentality stuck in them
The only people the hood excites are people that never had to grow up in one
So know that when ever you see your wrist, littered with scars
It isn’t who you are, and that you have the strength to move on
You’re beautiful, but you’ve got to put this past you
And just because I doubt myself, I’ve got to ask you

[Hook: Byron Henderson]

[Verse: Byron Henderson]
Was almost like an uphill climb, to fulfill our dream
That’s until time omitted you at a high speed
And my life became like a Pharcyde song
Barely had time to blink as it passed right by me
I reflect on the past and remember going to my first dance
And how all you did was laugh with me
Imagine being on top of the world at full throttle
Am I to dwell?
Cause I would rather tell these people the best times of my life I was spending with you
A minute can do enough damage to one man that it’s uncanny to not be this bendable, true
Equivalent to a train wreck, it’s a miracle for me to be alive right now
But I’m in this for you, and I mean that in the best way
Forget death for a second, a metaphor for the wreckage
We’re better off with a message that’ll span over decades
Like the first time we met, I remember like it was yesterday
Every smile, every hug, every kiss, every tear I had to catch
I was blessed to have bested fate
Forever destined to spit in the Devil’s face again
No question, the race I’m in is destiny
Fate when mixed with Satan’s kiss
A pessimist today cause you waivered
Guess you couldn’t take the pain they would cage you with
But I don’t blame you
How many times would they use you, extort you, abuse you till the only thing you could hold onto was the music?
Everything you were going through was collusive
While the tears build up, if I slip and I fall right off of this cliff
Disappear in the fog; it’s your family to blame for this crippling loss
Like a moth to a flame, got attention to draw
Not to mention, it’s all on me
Should I patiently wait for the time and the day that a label just happens to call on me?
With you gone, I’m alone and it’s seems like the weight from their drama just happens to fall on me
Met your father and all like you wanted
I promise, the dream will live on till my heart don’t beat
Athania Pkwy is all I need
To every fan that’s ever sent or written a letter
I hope you accept that Marina Rivera or should I say Marina Prado?
Is bigger than this rapping, I’m just being honest
Kicking down the doors, reaping what I sow
Dodging everybody just to make it home
And if I’ve got to quit this rapping, I’ll do it, won’t overstay my welcome
Hear me up in Heaven, I just need to know...

[Hook: Byron Henderson]

Will any of these songs ever really matter when I’m buried and gone?
A hopeless forever for me
Cause I’m more than tired, I’m just out here trying to be immortalized
For the better, trying to better all your lives
Only thing that’s ever really on my mind is you
