lyrics

[Intro singing]
tonight I made wish
not a star in the sky, though
what I'd do to live,
so high up above the clouds (so high, so high)
in the depths of hell

[Verse 1]
I feel trapped, but I love it in a sick way
finding comfort in discomfort, that's what gets me
no cushion where I sit, wouldn't take a sick day
cause there's no sick pay, much less a dental plan
nah, I don't own it, it's just a rental, man
so ya'll ain't gotta ask, like every time I pass, right
all you're doin' is showin' your insecurity
I show it too, but not in an insecure way
do you know what I'm sayin? I'm too honest for this life,
some people don't appreciate it, and I know sometimes they're right
a lot of things, I can settle though, without a fight
and I'm a lover, I mean, man, I lay the pipe
I like a smart cookie, with that good brain
few and far between, but I got good aim
top sponsor, double-entendre
my shit goes deep; I just let these bitches ponder

[Chorus]
sometimes I wish, wish, wish
I could trade it in,
but I'm so committed to this life that I'm living,
cause I can't miss my chance,
I don't got many options,
there must be a mistake
I swear, I dream wide awake,
it's so real

[Verse 2]
build the team up, improve where I lack
we're all laughing in the studio: memories, that sorta crap
man, before I'd ever sung a double on the track,
still, I was tryna turn a couple notes into a stack
I find it funny how these paths parallel each other
it's Rap At Your Own Expense now, like no other
my partna Bils is in, facing his time,
I write him letters, he write back, say he's doin' just fine,
but it's more complex than that, those Fed years
take a tole on your soul, and there's no comin' back
they call it rehabilitation, but all I ever seen it turn good people mean, and they come out full of hatred
hey, I'm so passionate, about this music shit,
I give it everything I got, and it cost a grip
everyday, I swear man, it's all I know
I just follow the light, rain sleet or snow

[Chorus]

[Outro singing]

so real, oh it's so real
take your breath away
hey,
why did you bring me here,
and leave me all alone?

about

St. Kelly Vancouver, British Columbia

I like music with intensity. I lean towards darker sounds. I love powerful melodies, I live for powerful rhythms. I like things tribal and sexy. I like things that look, sound and feel like magic.
