How I'm Livin'

lyrics

I speak on behalf of the wise
disenfranchised
people all over sick of the lies
and I ain’t saying that you gotta choose sides
but if you stand against something maybe you should cut ties
otherwise just stand to side
don’t waste my time
hypocrites – everything that they say is illegitimate
what’s success if you lose your soul in the thick of it
can’t read the signs – they illiterate
see the way I figure it
I’m like fuck my pride – getting rid of it
right before the fall, man I’m sick of it
examining my life, how I’m living it
realizing that everything I’ve gone through was for my own benefit
(so) this is how I’m being ‘till the end of it
my actions reflect my soul’s etiquette
stay honest and relevant
follow God’s path even if it’s not evident
the rest is a distraction and that’s all its ever been

One foot in front the other
it’s how I’m livin, how I’m livin ya’ll
walkin the path of a poet
and I ain’t, gonna, stop, for no man
One foot in front the other
stayin’ driven, stayin’ driven ya’ll
it’s the path that I’ve chosen
I’ma keep, walking, it, ‘cause I can

Ive been holding it down for years
I’ve already set myself free from 95% of my fears
so it’s clear, that I stand out amongst my peers
not hard to find – I’m in your pupils when you look in the mirror
it took time for the truth to appear
life lessons in arrears
but that’s what I had to get through to get to over here
now I just show up and life steers
me a course I could never imagine
or ever fathom in my wildest
dreams that I that I had in the days I was childish
now childlike without losing sight of the mileage
that I’ve travelled
experience I’ve gathered
spiritual man who’s involved in these earthly matters
from days lost with no hope and my mind in tatters
making art out of pain, sublimating my sadness
to an MC standing tall who can spit with the baddest
I look back I’m filled with gladness
if hindsight’s 20/20 and my future is mapped out?
I’m where I need to be, sorry suckas you assed out
(I’ve) already overcome where most people would crap out
up late writing rhymes while most drunken or passed out
I’m not saying I’m better
trust me, I’ve seen my own share of bad weather
I’ve done my own dirt, got blood on my sweater
but I’ve learned from my mistakes, lots at stake so I’m keeping my head up
sometimes I’m still fed up
wanna say fuck it all, it’s a set up
but there’s a fire burning in my soul that won’t let up
so I can either let the flame engulf me
or use it to ignite the fuel to my drive
I silence my ego, they can’t hurt my pride
my intuition coincide with the truth inside
on the path of the most high, thank God I’m alive
I’m here right now, so there’s nowhere to arrive

One foot in front the other
it’s how I’m livin, how I’m livin ya’ll
walkin the path of a poet
and I ain’t, gonna, stop, for no man
One foot in front the other
stayin’ driven, stayin’ driven ya’ll
it’s the path that I’ve chosen
I’ma keep, walking, it, ‘cause I can
