about

I turn the lights out and focus on my dreams
I can, recall when I didn't know what to believe
I been, remotely lost with life and myself
Wondering where I would be with my mic on the shelf

I dream of a life so pure with no hatred
But this world's accustomed to it, they won't take it
We all have dreams to follow so go chase it
This music is a part of my life I'm gon make it
I've sailed oceans with the roughest of waves
But either way son you'll find me riding under the rays
I'm in search of myself with a compass and a map
I just wanna lay back write something and relax
It's been a long time coming for me
So many people doubted me it's kinda funny to see
The tables have turned, I'm moving up now, I'm getting buck wild
The fans scream for me at every show that I shut down
So why you dissing me? I spit vividly
Nobody can break my confidence or get rid of me
I'm throwing back but I'm just lost in time
They wanna hate but they know I'll make it so they heed the caution sign

I turn the lights out and focus on my dreams
I can, recall when I didn't know what to believe
I been, remotely lost with life and myself
Wondering where I would be with my mic on the shelf

The lights are out, the mic is on
My fans love me for these types of songs, yo
I put the pen to the page and leave my thoughts on it
If a beat makes my hip move I can hop on it
Follow me through the darkness I got a torch lit
I promise it'll take a lot for me to forfeit
I'm in the zone with a pen and pad
Trying to give my family a better life and things that they never had
I'm motivated by the obstacles I pass through
My life should be known as the chronicles of bad news
I'm a diamond in the rough come and pick me up
Lift me up, all I needs a microphone and 50 bucks
That'll give me a beat then you can let me work
I've been feeling blue so I'm showing it in every verse
My music is something I'll share forever
But right now I feel blind folded walking the Sahara desert

I turn the lights out and focus on my dreams
I can, recall when I didn't know what to believe
I been, remotely lost with life and myself
Wondering where I would be with my mic on the shelf
