“Fight My Way Out”

 

Chorus

All the days and nights I would never know

All the years i’d have lost 

If I didn’t fight it out 

So I had to fight it out 

So I had to fight it out 

 

V1

Back to the ropes

Not losing hope 

Eyes swollen closed  

Can’t see what I’m swinging at  

 

Crack to the dome 

Jaw getting broke 

Face split to bone 

Can’t see what I’m looking at

 

Give in to faith 

Given the strength 

Lived in a place 

Where the snakes keep on biting back

But I keep on fighting back 

 

Remembering back to those times in my basement 

Up all night 

Walking back and forth pacing 

Waiting to come down while my heart beats racing 

I just wanted one more so bad I can taste it

 

I was so far gone 

It was clear I wasn’t learning 

I walked around 

Wearing a veneer on the surface 

Thinking everybody thinks I’m so close to perfect 

Feeling like I had to be someone that was worth it 

 

I had some close friends that were nothing but an anchor 

Had to cut them off before they drug me down to danger

I have some  stories I could tell you 

But you’d think were fiction 

I had to cool down, I was only making friction 

 

First I got sick of the drinking every weekend 

Then I got tired of never sleeping from the tweaking

You went and had a kid

And didn’t change 

You ain’t thinking 

Add it up, and you wonder why we’re hardly speaking? 

 

Chorus

All the days and nights I would never know

All the years i’d have lost 

If I didn’t fight it out 

So I had to fight it out 

So I had to fight it out

 

V/2s

Fell off the edge

Down to the depths 

Losing my breath

Too deep for me to climb it out

 

Taking the steps

Taking a breath

Making progress 

Keep going, You can fight it out 

 

Searching for the truth 

Felt like no use 

Fell in to blue skies 

When I had a clouded mind 

But it passed in time 

 

I think of life now

If it never would have happened 

Whole world collapsed 

No rap, that’s a wrap then 

No songs wrote, no albums, no shows 

No kids, no Linds 

Traded it all for the blow 

 

Forget the days of living with my demons 

They can’t have me 

I found a better home for my soul in my family 

Finally found a girl to fall for me that can stand me 

Im up & down so much 

I’m playing tug of war with gravity

 

My life ended up where it did 

It just had to be 

I really could care less

About the people who will laugh at me 

 

I opened up about my faith 

Then they went  called me fake 

But I never seen them at a show say it to my face

 

Had t,o take control or get sucked into a black hole 

And  what happens after that? 

No one claims to ever know

 

I’m seeing life now

From the side of the half full glass 

But the empty space 

isn’t negative 

it’s a chance to advance
