Beautiful Lasers (2 Ways)
by Lupe Fiasco



Chorus

There’s only two ways out of here
You wait too late, you’ll be trapped here forever
There’s only two ways out of here
One’s through the door, the other’s through me

Verse 1

Sometimes livin’ in a world like this,
It’s pretty hard no to go insane
Not pretty if you don’t comply,
Pretty easy if you don’t complain,
Standin’ there life you don’t feel pain,
No tears in the face of defeat
Pretend to the end that you don’t fear change
Don’t admit that your faith is week
Don’t say that you feel like diein’
Life’s hard and it feels like diamonds
Your home is just far too gone,
Much to late to even feel like tryin’
Can’t understand what I’m sayin’
Can’t figure out what I’m implyin’
If you feel you don’t wanna’ be alive
You feel just how I am (I am, I am)
I’m on the dark side
And you can’t come find em
How it is like all around you
Yeah, when it’s dark on the side em
No winner when it’s me against me
One of us ain’t gone survive
My hearts been broke for a while
Yours been the one keepin’ me alive

Chorus

There’s only two ways out of here
You wait too late, you’ll be trapped here forever
There’s only two ways out of here
One’s through the door, the other’s through me

Verse 2

This world is sucha fucked up place
My mind’s in sucha fucked up shape
Everything down here sucks
Maybe what’s up there is great
We all gotta go one day
I just wanna cut to the chase,
I wanna stop these nightmares
I just wanna touch your face
All you see is all my feats,
All I see is all my flaws
All I hear is all my demons
Even through your applause
All you see is all my flights,
Well all I see is all my falls
All you see is all my rights
All I see is all my wrongs
You’re keep tellin’ me to fights
Gun on the table tellin’ me to come home
Tellin’ me to put em inside my head
Then put it up right next to my dome
Keep tellin’ me to find a reason
Anything to keep me from squeezin’
Simplest things, yeah you really like summer,
You really like music, you really like readin’, and love
I can’t win if it’s me against me
One of us ain’t gone survive
My heart been broke for a while,
Yours been the one keepin’ me alive
Yours been the one keepin’ me alive
Yours been the one keepin’ me alive

Chorus

There’s only two ways out of here
You wait too late, you’ll be trapped here forever
There’s only two ways out of here
One’s through the door, the other’s through me

The other’s through me (5x)
