We all know life can get hectic

But if you live in the second,

You exist in the present

And that's how you stay connected

Go through good times and hardships

And if you learn to accept it

And know that every struggle in life,

Is there to teach you a lesson

It's times like this that make you

It's always the darkest part of the night, right before the sun has it's break through

The spirits there to knock you down,

But if you make that the end

You will never know the beauty

Of being able to stand up again

And face it, with patience,

The Pace set is dealing

With judgements and hatred,

Depressed hopeless feelings

But I've been told,

You only create your own ceilings

Life is limitless,

And knowing this is what the spirit is

That's why I try to inhale deep, so I can find peace, and essence can find me

That's why I lose myself in these beats,

Let myself become one with the drum and set myself free

Whatever direction life leads me,

There is a purpose behind it

That's the way it was supposed to be

And any time you can turn over a new leaf

Y'all know the truth,

It's up to us to use the key

Been three years since my first album dropped

It's been fear that's really got me stuck on the spot

Not wanting to put out anything whack

So inside of putting licks on my tracks,

I put my lips to a sack

Because it's easier to spend your life drunk,

And high on drugs

Than to put everything on recording,

And put it out to be judged

We look for the audience,

To put their hands up and show love

But when they put their hands down,

Our confidence really takes the plunge

So instead of making music

That people might not like,

I went into isolation

I traded my mic in for the pipe

Started living the college life,

Drinking and smoking every day

Rationalizing to myself,

That I was going through a phase

Then I stopped,

Thinking my music would take it's place

But when you live in fog,

Inspiration is hard to create

It takes more to get connected,

Than to quit smoking every day

And when I get frustrated I get a Swisher

And get blown away

Then all of a sudden it hit me,

These kids are listening

If I'm not making music,

Then why the fuck am I existing

How can I talk about the problems,

Of some one else

When I don't have the motivation,

And confidence to change myself

It's been so long since I really truly felt

What it's like to live without substances to help

Massive struggle that's natural to one's health

With addiction in my blood,

I play the cards I was dealt

The wind is the most calm,

Right before the storm

And when you least expect it,

It doesn't rain, it pours

I swear to God you can never be warned

Because with or without that umbrella

Nature is still gonna take it's course

That's why I try to inhale deep,

So I can find peace, and essence just finds me,

That's why I lose myself in these beats,

Put away the weed, And turn to my MPC


If I could just, I would change

If I could just, I would change

If I could just, I would change

If I could just, I would change
