lyrics

here's a lil story that must be told
about one too many dreams been put on hold
Gotta try to get it right cuz you gone get old
When I'm gone I wantchu to say that sumbitch cold.
Rite right right right right ?
Rite of passage

So I was brought up in the catholic tradition.
Taught the benefits of making better decisions
When the devil spoke I never listened
But soon enough I'm laughing at the Vatican and Catechism
followin my daddy's rhythm
pimp I'm from the city migrated to the south
ChiTown DFW bounce
ever since I was an oshkosh hush puppy fisher price
Never really had to fight wet the bed many night
product of a teenage age love the fuck's up?
pops swingin dick around the hood like nunchucks
nothin but a thang guess he's just not built
for Mom's who so smart so them shoes got fillt
and I felt the feelin of dealin with broken family
if I ever get a woman pregnant she gone marry me
proceed carefully: the bible says flee
lost in the lust you don't even know me

here's a lil story that must be told
about one too many dreams been put on hold
Gotta try to get it right cuz you gone get old
When I'm gone I wantchu to say that sumbitch cold.
Rite right right right right ?
Rite of passage

the ex...

I can't talk about her too much
Cuz she didn't do much to talk about
So I was often on walkabout.
Always with the rhymes as a side bitch.
Typing verses online here she comes hide quick
Porn I adored. Even worked in the business.
I was just curious I quit with a quickness.
I’d rather technical support. “Respectable”.
Life medical dental while sharpening my mental.
So sharp dude I got used to cutting loose.
5 fortune 500’s still running from the truth.
Like what you wanna do. Why the fuck you asking.
A double-minded man is not multi-tasking.

Now see, I wrote this in hopes it finds you.
Maybe you hurt and it reminds you to f
Fall back and think. Don’t let your fam shrink.
Your grandchildren grown before you can blink.
See I know how we do. I empathize.
I lost touch with my roots. Compartmentalized.
Like. I met my wife then I let my wife
Act a fool for a score then I left my wife.
Now please adjust the light and pass me a tissue.
I must adjust my pretty daughters yall this is an issue.
Baby girls I miss you like a blind sniper.
Easy breezy beautifuls. You’s a time lifer.
And I’m a time traveler. And I apologize.
Being tortured in the past, I was traumatized.
Now my open wounds have been cauterized.
There may other women but when your father dies
You get it all butterflies you are authorized.

here's a lil story that must be told
about one too many dreams been put on hold
Gotta try to get it right cuz you gone get old
When I'm gone I wantchu to say that sumbitch cold.
Rite right right right right ?
Rite of passage
