Lyrics
INTRO:

Everybody goes through something

at some point in their lives

this is me

this is my something

VERSE 1:

How could you ever know, when you look at me
that i have been through enough challenge for a century?
both physically, and mentally
this shit will catch up with me pin me down and render me
incapacitated eventually
i hate it it'll be the end of me
and this for certain,
this is not potentially
its deadily the way i'm breakin down so steadily

tho you see me smilin, tho you hear me jokin
tho i keep shinin, you would never know that
i have been broken sliced open, blood soakin
starving and chokin, shaking and convulsin
i have been beat down to the pulp and
i have climbed back up to my pulpit
so many of my years been stolen
so i'mma seize this moment (moment)

HOOK:

I'm just hangin on

through the night, to the dawn

and I'm just trying to make it

one more night.... i see the light
 
VERSE 2:

Pushing, fightin, pushing fightin
i live my life and then i put it down in writing
but what i see on these pages is frightening
who i used to be, (and) what i mighta been
these songs read out like a diary
and you can see my life's like a fiery
nascar fast car crashin in the turn
i'm explodin inside, when i breathe it burns
when i talk, it hurts, when i rap its worse.
and so it's pain that gives birth to every verse
so this music that i love is a curse
and you can hear my lungs about to burst
heyyy, (hey)  this is absurrrrrd
what  i been through, no one deserrrrvvves
i was bleeding out, till i was blackin out
forget the doctor, [talk] call the Church
 
 
VERSE 3:

They say what doesn't kill you only makes you strong
they had it easy, they got it wrong
what if it breaks you down till a piece of you is gone?
I'll never move on
i've been changed in a way that i'll never be the same
i pray every day just to get me through this pain
i try to lift me up, i try to pick me up
been through it all but i ain't never givin up
