You Got God

Life’s starting to look like a scratched album

Blurred images of familiar faces seem to have rehearsed lines

I’m tryna figure out where I fit in, in this life

My puzzle piece is just a bit too small for the role they want me to play

Life’s so scripted but when they had a dress rehearsal, I must’ve missed it

Now my character is outta whack

It’s kind of random in fact

I just want to kiss until we thirst from dehydration

I’m tryna make this work, but people only care about love making

Now tell me am I sounding crazy?

The asylum wanted to be my home

But when I dialed that number those doctors didn’t come

I saw those pigs hop out that car though

Now they hunting, chasing me like I’m an animal

The hemoglobin left my veins a while ago

Now I’m filled with strife

Vengeance is the only thing that stalks this life

Asking for a way out but I always have to beg twice

I’m tryna figure out where I fit in, in this life

My puzzle piece is just a bit too small for the role they want me to play

Life’s so scripted, but when they had a dress rehearsal I swear I must’ve missed it

Now I’m having long days and even longer nights praying for forgiveness I’ve been sleeping my life away because of fear

Dreaming my thoughts away with every tear

Have you ever screamed until your lungs burst? But still no one can hear?

You felt that hate filled acid scold your throat

The pain burned so bad that you started to choke

Now you dying from suffocation

There was a time we were all on that same boat

But niggas jump ship when they see that dollar sign go

Then you start to realize that you’re no longer afloa

t Instead of throwing you a life vest they let that ocean catch you

Now you drowning in dreams of memories that just couldn’t be

Now this life of glamour can no longer be your reality

That HOLLYWOOD sign doesn’t exactly glow in dark times

And now you wondering how you could’ve believed those lies

Just the thought of fame and fortune comes at a high price

Now you alone in a dark alley hoping for sunrise

Then you look up and see a beacon of light in those cloudy skies

And suddenly you remember you, got, God
