lyrics

At the crossroads, and I’m trying to find a way through these last days.
Lost in the shadows til I’m dying to get away in these last days.

Living my life in spite of the enemies, music is my vice, my only true memory, Broken reality, soul needs a remedy, get through melody., find an identity. I gotta break out of this box so hard then move this message through all the blocks downtown. and If I find a way, I’ll make sure that my family don’t go hungry during these last days of machines and plastic. My mother died twice, she still lives to this day, she taught me that time is precious and our bodies will decay. So, I keep a strong mind, and I keep my goals on lock, and just because the birds migrate don’t mean you gotta flock. Sure, it’s true the early bird gets the worm, but with 5 minutes to midnight we should be concerned. Will we ever learn? I feel like I’m telling myself that, while I’m wondering where all the wealth’s at, unemployed considering welfare.

At the crossroads, and I’m trying to find a way through these last days.
Lost in the shadows til I’m dying to get away in these last days.

I want to find peace, where the earth and my soul meet, where the satisfaction of my impact lifts me off my feet. To feel complete, when all the threads holding me back release and time slow down to a point where I am free.
This is my life and I’m on a path, focus the music and finish the task, remember to laugh and always look up but never look back. I try to relax while walking around on brass tacks, I’m living out of backpacks sporting goodwill denim. No money in these pockets, but the money is the venom. Trying to catch me for my possessions is petty, catch me in the night-I’m ready, yellow shades and a machete.
and If it’s a routine that your stuck on, try and define your body and mind and know that it can get better in time. It’s selfish for a moment, until you finally break through, unless it’s just you stuck at the:

Crossroads, and I’m trying to find a way through these last days.
Lost in the shadows til I’m dying to get away in these last days.

Life is twisted, if you get it, light it, hit it and then pass it. Some times when your gifted your dreams get wrapped in plastic. The path I chose is not the fastest, but you move to quick at the cost of crashing. I’m in the fast lane holding on to my sanity, cause life can be a fishbowl full of sweat tears and vanity. If it’s not what you planned to be, If you don’t know where you started from, listen to your heart move to the beat of a different drum. Life is novel so I try hard to read it. I’m just a grain in the gravel, but I don’t feel defeated. I’m bleeding proof on a mission for the truth, trying to break down the barriers that separate me and you. Honestly I don’t know the fate of my true purpose yet, and it’s obvious these obstacles might be too hard to circumvent, that’s why I’m working it, I’m gravy where’s the turkey at. I’m a man on a mission living life inside a circus tent.

At the crossroads, and I’m trying to find a way through these last days.
Lost in the shadows til I’m dying to get away in these last days.
