Straight & Narrow

I sit here it’s 4:40, in the AM not evening
Wonderin if my life really has any meaning
I’m tired of fuckin around I’m tired of bullshittin
I’m tired of my petty stories, let me make mention
About the haters that step up to me, keep hatin
to the fakes, wanna be fake, keep fakin
Thought ya would defeat me, homey it’s too late
I defeated myself and the battle was so great
I’m emerging in my own, but I’m tired of the past
So this is the walk away, shawty it’s gonna last
So if I walk away, move on and forgive
Cuz I wanna be forgiven, I wanna live
Lookin in the mirror and wonderin why
The life appears to be just make mistakes and die
I wanna go right, not lookin down the barrel
God put me back on the straight and narrow

‘Cause life is like a slide show
And all the places I go
And all the things that I know
Through all the hides alone
‘Cause life is like a slide show
And all the things that I’ve seen
And all the things that I dream
You can’t take away from me
‘Cause life is like a slide show

Imperfections, flaws, fuckups, I done em all
Was on the top, but all I did was fall
All I did was rock bottom and fall short
Even made a rotation in a basketball court
I lost it all, the talent just squandered
One thing I hate is the thing I wondered
No matter what I did, there was always a point
A point where people said I was honest, on point
I want that point back, most of all
Even in tears, hold my head up and stand tall
I wanna go right, not lookin down the barrel
God put me back on the straight and narrow
I want that point back, most of all
Even in tears, hold my head up and stand tall
I wanna go right, not lookin down the barrel
God put me back on the straight and narrow

‘Cause life is like a slide show
And all the places I go
And all the things that I know
Through all the hides alone
‘Cause life is like a slide show
And all the things that I’ve seen
And all the things that I dream
You can’t take away from me
‘Cause life is like a slide show
