AL3 – Believe Me

I believed in my lyrics and every time I wrote
Every time I edited and every time I spoke
Because I felt what I said was straight from the heart
But the truth of it is that it’s tearing me apart
I filtered this shit down, thinking that it was right
In the midst of it all, I lost my fight
And began to think that mediocrity was the way to go
Mediocrity is not a standard as the time shows
That I needed to be on another level
To fly with the angels and fight the devil
He will not gain control, stop him from succeeding
I cauterize my rhyming wounds, stop em from bleeding
So, the filter’s truly off and I’m speaking straight and clear
Bullets now coming, be brave, don’t cower in fear


Better believe me homie when I step in the booth
And when I spit this ish that is the truth
I put my soul down in words so you can read
That the truth is here and I don’t deceive
x2

My real mission now is to find what I’m missing
And look at my life and do some dismissing
Simple, yet true, you’re the elephant in the room
Causing my heart and soul dread and doom
So now I cast you out, I simply walk away
I live for tomorrow, to die another day
We rode together for a long time, guess I was blind
To not see the signs that my heart told my mind
It told me simple, straight, and plain
That it isn’t worth my time, only worth my disdain
Because misery loves company and I’m the worst to keep
Since my optimism is expensive, it’s never cheap
I put a price on it because I paid for it already
I’m done with your misery, so stop leaving me unsteady
Because the morality in me keeps saying the simple rule
Only swim with those in your morality pool


Better believe me homie when I step in the booth
And when I spit this ish that is the truth
I put my soul down in words so you can read
That the truth is here and I don’t deceive
x2
