Phoenix (Intro)

I slipped through the cracks
Was skinny and frail
If love was the same as air
I couldn't inhale
Put me through hell
Publicly shamed
Guilty with no trial
Throw dirt on my name
It's never been easy for me
Accustomed to pain
Umbrellas in high demand
Accustomed to rain
Fell in love with a snake
I covet her poison
Mistakes are embarrassing
I try to avoid them
Hand on the stove
Don't be surprised if it burns
Moth to a flame
All consequences are earned
Death on my top
Sizeable knot
Measuring my success
In all that I got
But who am I kidding
Lord knows I gave up a lot
I'm talking the headstones
Revising the plot
Is not in the cards
I would trade you my spot
Give all my earthly possessions to turn back the clock
Retracing my steps
Replacing the breath
Back in your lungs
But that's selfish I guess
Sometimes I reflect
I look in they eyes
I think I'm a good guy
But I feel they despise
All I count on for strength is the love of my daughter
Can't even hug on my kid because of court orders
Can't rely on these friends
They never hold water
But Judas sat at the table was part of the slaughter
Somehow keep it together
God and my mom
My team tougher than leather
Tasha and Ty
The tighter circle the better
Mick by my side
A bond you can never measure
They was ready to close my casket
Rose from the ashes
Sharpen up my thorns
Can't touch me bastards
Working on my bachelor's
You probably think it's magic
One M down
Don't stop now
Move faster
On zoom with the financial planner
Upping the standards
Buy low no guts no glory
Who needs an analyst
They ain't see it coming
All the deets are in the manifest
High stakes
Boy I know the streets
We can handle this
They used to trade bullets on the block
Now we're being bullish with the stocks
It's a big difference
I'm far from the toughest by a lot
But the strategy I got that shit on lock
Homie bear witness
See you can boil water in a pot
But you can't keep it down when it's hot
It's the same sentiment
Can't say I never took a loss
But I took those lessons to the heart
We became intimate
She's a bitch by all accounts
But you only get one life gotta keep a happy house
Emotions cloud your logic when they out
Wearing long sleeves, stoned face damn what he about
Don't worry
Everybody in a hurry
Start to telegraph your moves
And that's when they jump your route
Social media for clout
With the bears waiting upstream
You chumps are the trout
Dreams of touchin' the sun
They said I can't shine
Rose up like the Phoenix
It's just my time
Dreams of touchin' the sun
They said I can't shine
Rose up like the Phoenix
It's about time
Dreams of touchin' the sun
They said I can't shine
Rose up like the Phoenix
It's just my time
Dreams of touchin' the sun
They said I can't shine
Rose up like the Phoenix
It's about time
