It takes time and discipline, a tough mind and thick skin, enough grind to outrun the wind just to win in this game of life The rules change almost every night, every type of person exists but none can get it right, still I might be the one to break the code My fucking vanity, how could I break the sleeper hold I'm chucking my vanity out of a window that's covered in stained glass, bars and wires Drinking out of a stained glass in bars with liars, adding that alcohol to my bars makes fire I admire all of y'all with the balls to make it, I had to gaul to not want to fall when I chased it lets face it The game's in need of a facelift, I'm the best like Nip Tuck, but I ain't taking no patients, no patience It got me losing minutes, every single second of life before I start I'm finished Cause I'm a soldier, it's getting harder to stay sober Broader Spectrum, got me changing out my orders from headquarters, set out to set up the mortars Like a suicide bomber, my fuses are shorter, I'm the ruses decoder, your foul mouth leaves an odor Squawking like a bird, will get your wings clipped, before the cage birds sing it or get it's dome split Loose lips sink ships, I'm trying to float in this bitch, Cause I'm surrounded by the enemy, I question my friends Paranoid, tentatively, obsessing my ends, assessing my trends I'm trying to break the cycle, confessing my sins while writing this on a bible Sacrilegious, why are my demons so vicious? Years of depression created this visage From a lineage of kings that has turned to peasants, I covet the ring, as if it were my precious As if it were my message, I try to speak to the people, anyone who will listen It's my freedom from evil, but free dumb people, enslaved themselves, engaged in hell, I think I hear wedding bells, for whom the bells toll, got me blowing bridges, rigging explosives I'm hiding out in ditches, in search of riches, to restore my kingdom But what's a king to a god, and what's a god to those who don't believe Cause I'm a soldier, it's getting harder to stay sober Broader spectrum, got me changing out my orders From headquarters, set out to set up the mortars Like a suicide bomber, my fuses are shorter, I'm the ruses decoder, your foul mouth leaves an odor Squawking like a bird, well get your wings clipped, before the cage birds sing it will get its dome split Loose lips sink ships, I'm trying to float in this bitch Now it's talent and skill, mixed in with balance and will It still ain't enough, to challenge the field You know the drill, some people sell their souls for the deal It be the fakest, motherfuckers say they keeping it real But try to keep it for real, cause I ain't in this for fame I'll create my own lane, cause I ain't playing no games It's for the fallen, and those who carry the shame Of loved ones who fell, cause they exploded their brains So many reasons to live, so many ways to die, how many seasons to give Depression is a struggle, makes it hard to forgive But this post-traumatic stress, makes it harder to live So there it is, I put my life in these bars Better this, than this knife through your heart Better spit like soldier Hard and slip to your squad If your goal is to live, then don't rush up on the guard Cause I'm a soldier, it's getting harder to stay sober Broader spectrum, got me changing out my orders from headquarters Set out to set up the mortar, like a suicide bomber My fuses are shorter, I'm the ruses decoder, your foul mouth leaves an odor Squawking like a bird, we'll get your wings clipped Before the cage birds sing it again, it will get its dome split Loose lips, sink ship, I'm trying to float in this bitch
