AL3 – Another Level

You can try and read my lyrics off of this paper before I lay ’em
But you won’t take the sting out these words before I say ’em
I’m on Another Level and I’m letting my lyrics go
While I’m borrowing my inspiration from the best in the flow
So, the fact is that I’m on another level than most
I’m not trying to be arrogant or even trying to boast
But the truth of the matter is that right and wrong is known
And I ignored the fact cuz people kept saying I was wrong
I was trying to be perfect in every way cuz it was right
But I gave up that shit so fast, without a whimper or fight
To try to be human and fit in with the masses
Instead of schooling all the masses and taking their asses to classes
Instead of being different, I decided to just blend
And that was a mistake, now my life is on the mend
I’m healing from all my past mistakes
And the road that was curved will finally be straight

So many people try to rate my rhymes
They compare it to those who make this their grind
I’m on another level because this is my release
It’s my soul’s final cry in life for peace (x2)

So some people say lyrics ain t where it is
I tell you, lyrics is where my heart is
It s a brand new level when I slow down my flow
About time I introduce all to the little Los show
It started in 86 right when my eyes opened
Actually, in 91 when I started choking
I wasn t choking on food, I was choking on my words
When I listened cross the way and what I heard?
A smart, soft voice, matched with a pretty face
I figured to myself, the road gotta be straight
Kept my mind going, I kept living and learning
My straight road just kept on turning
Until it had so many curves, I couldn t make it straight
Next thing you know, it was all too late
I turned my card in and a new game had begun
One that caused more pain than a bullet from a gun
So instead of causing more pain, I take myself away
It hurts at the beginning, but trust, it s the right way
I was on another level, but I brought myself down
Now I need to rebuild, tear this old building down
I start at my foundation cuz if it’s weak I’ll fall once more
And the final time, I don’t think I’ll get up from the floor.

So many people try to rate my rhymes
They compare it to those who make this their grind
I’m on another level because this is my release
It’s my soul’s final cry in life for peace (x2)

I shouldn’t have stopped, shouldn’t tuck tail and hid
But I was too afraid of the repercussions for what I did
I had to learn a harsh lesson to live and atone
It’s the pain of life of finally being grown
And away from home, Mom wanted me to stand strong
So I accept the blood in the veins that circle my bone
I feel my conscience tell me that I’m never defeated
Until I decide the point that I decide to stop succeeding
I live my life day by day, pushing to be better
Grounded to the ground, not floating like a feather
I stand on my morals, even if I stand alone
I have one last moment to finally stand strong
Since the opportunities are now few, not several
It’s time to prove to the world that I’m on another level.

So many people try to rate my rhymes
They compare it to those who make this their grind
I’m on another level because this is my release
It’s my soul’s final cry in life for peace (x2)
