No Takebacks

I look at your life and there’s no takebacks
No safe tracks, no fall backs, everything faded to black
But the story behind it is that you lost sight
On every moral standard, on all you held right
To put it simple, you kinda lost your way
Not a bad person, but the cost you will pay
Because the boss is here and he’s demanding an explanation
On how you fell short of your yearly dedication
So what is it Los, what made you fall so short?
What made you give up and never touch the court?
What made you drop the weights when they got you so strong?
What made you stand here spineless, lost your backbone?

Cuz there’s no takebacks, there’s no renig
This ain’t a spades game, time’s up, you kid
It’s time to let the reign go and watch me roll
Put your life in perspective, watch me stroll

I should’ve done all of this questioning in the past
But I didn’t know how long the pain would last
I thought you had it under control, had it under wraps
But now I see that this story was such crap
Now I gotta fix it all, gotta change the game
Not preach about it, just change the reign
The king and horse are gonna swap positions
When I’m done, the past will never be mentioned

Cuz there’s no takebacks, there’s no renig
This ain’t a spades game, time’s up, you kid
It’s time to let the reign go and watch me roll
Put your life in  perspective, watch me stroll

Put the game in perspective, I’m barely resting
Since every step you take, you screw up all our blessings
So let’s put this thing to rest, I’m winning what you lost
I’m taking all your pain, even paying what you cost
When you took the wrong path and screwed up our life
Instead of laying the shots down and doing what’s right
It’s a sin to sin when knowing that you sin
All it does is damage your soul, now the repairs begin
We start with you since you the one who messed up
I’m starting from the chest down and then from the chest up
I’m repairing all of your parts, bringing them to code
Once that is done, this past will finally be old
When I’m done with all this, you’ll fade to black
Since I’ll be done with life, there’s no takebacks
Except the time I’m taking back after 6 years of mistakes
I’m doing this before you make one that’s too great

Cuz there’s no takebacks, there’s no renig
This ain’t a spades game, time’s up, you kid
It’s time to let the reign go and watch me roll
Put your life in perspective, watch me stroll

One thing about life…there’s no takebacks. Once today is done, that’s it. Blink…yeah, that second you just lost and won’t get back.
