Track Name: So Alone
So cold so alone the way I work got me looking like an asshole. I don't get it no. Work boy work girl go n get it stay true stay fit stay. So cold so alone the way I work got me looking like an asshole I don't get it though. I hide behind the years of tears.
A broken back, minimum wage working 3 jobs, questioning why she wasn't born with a sack. Why do it matter though - - seeing shapes, trails colors, keeps eyes peeled back. Miss nothing, question all, bed of nails when she fall into its lives phantom pain of being ripped away from it all - seen with a kiss to that same damn wall. But they don't hear me though. They don't get or see the needle and the sack thats missing. She prolly pissed because its something that she will never have. This proves undoubtedly that no man woman or child can be the best in out time. We all equal. The devil will never know what its like to live inside the sheeps skin as I teeter totter over deep seas of greed, don't slip fall in.

When you fail you must continue to begin, within the walls of desperation hesitation lives through fear. Am I seeing clear? Is this all in my head or is it in the mirror?

Trying to gend the bender - decades of slender minds transformed a unit in time. A G in the myyynnndd skin tone always different than my friends - why I got this half nappy hair? A place to go no where or so I thought this shit had me trippin. At an all time low, straight stressing. The family like you could have come to us but thats how it always is right? Its not their fault listen. They was a mixed race couple, my Ma and my step Dad and I was afraid of being what I was showing on the outside. My insides ripped apart because I was trying to hide the best thing about me for such a damn long time. But, now Im standing before you spilling my core, this apple didn't fall far from where its meant to be. Its been a long road, damn near 8 miles. Got me feeling like a rabbit with my back to the wall. Or is it in a hole - shiiit. They say Im on top in Co, but Im broke as fuck. Same as you. But, thats how you get back. Admit you hit that rock bottom now hit that wall assassins creed I call it. Sometimes I feel transcended through time. Ive come back to slave you. They want to enslave you. Including me. Its the same greed that got me pushing. Im sorry. Like, I might die tomorrow and if I do don't be clouded with that judgment and sorrow just know one thing. I taught you something. You can be free as you want. Got dammit aint that something. Defy all odds. Walk blinded to the judgment of their Gods and I will answer to that hight power when I get there. I do not live by any of your laws and I will never be guided by any of your misguided thoughts

So cold so alone the way I work got me looking like an asshole. I don't get it though. Work boy work girl go n get it stay true stay fit stay true, stay wise. So cold so alone the way I work got me looking like an asshole I don't get it though. I hide behind the years of tears why did it take me all these got damn years.
