I've been down and out for sometime now
Lost it all, gotta go and build it back somehow
Wonderin' were I'll move on from here (move on from here)
Yeah, I've been down and out for long now
I ain't perfect but I know I'm gonna find out how
And where I'm really meant to be
I've gotta wait and see what the man upstairs has planned for me

Guess I'm a magnet for madness, I'm faking glad in my sadness
Been asking God for more answers to all the questions I'm having
I've drown myself in bad habits, so grateful that I'm still breathin'
I lived my dream until the dreamin' was my demons deceivin' me
Just feedin' off of my energy
Been down and out but I'll stand to be a better man than I used to be
Writing melancholy elegies
My ample for of therapy, not knowing where this road will lead

But I know that I'll be fine (once the dust settles)
Been hurtin' in my decline (fighting all these battles)
My skins been gettin' tougher (as I wear my scars proudly)
Future's lookin' bright sharing love for those who doubt me

I've been down and out for sometime now
Lost it all, gotta go and build it back somehow
Wonderin' were I'll move on from here (move on from here)
Yeah, I've been down and out for long now
I ain't perfect but I know I'm gonna find out how
And where I'm really meant to be
I've gotta wait and see what the man upstairs has planned for me

Yes, I can be polarizin' cause I'm seeing different horizons
Had to make my mind up or I'd be wandering blind in the high sun's
Had to run back all my memories
Relive the joy and trageties
Regret angry audacities
Cleanin' my mental tapestry
Working word wizard whimsicality
It soothes my mind, I find I'm gettin' refined up in morality
Been tempted for so long by such vein depravity
I know some of you mad at me
This is me asking for forgiveness and some clarity
I ain't looking for charity, buried deep, escaped narrowly
Harrowing arrows flying at the back of me still attackin' me
But I'm never backing down
Keep it real on the down low
I've been down and out
But I'm endin' on a high note

I've been down and out for sometime now
Lost it all, gotta go and build it back somehow
Wonderin' were I'll move on from here (move on from here)
Yeah, I've been down and out for long now
I ain't perfect but I know I'm gonna find out how
And where I'm really meant to be
I've gotta wait and see what the man upstairs has planned for me
