lyrics

Chorus

Just before I'm gone as I'm drawin' out my final breath
Please don't forget that this is just merely a physical death
And I poured my soul into these works that you can always get
And I lived my life the way I should n' I got no regrets

Verse 1

It's been a rough road it's been a tough ride
Always needing help without nobody idling by
That's the type of life I had to try and override
Ain't got no memories of any little lullabies
I do remember trauma and the times alone I cried
And realizing that I inherited broken ties
Then simple mathematics said I had to grow inside
From that point on I had to find more ways to feel alive

Chorus

Just before I'm gone as I'm drawin' out my final breath
Please don't forget that this is just merely a physical death
And I poured my soul into these works that you can always get
And I lived my life the way I should n' I got no regrets

Verse 2

It's fair to say yes I made my fair share of mistakes
But still I never got consumed by the wrath of hate
I spent my days locked away as I studied man
Rippin' through page after page just to understand
Whats this thing that they're calling the rule of the land
Whats the price that one pays if they're taking a stand
What's the safest way to navigate this maze
In my heart am I ready for the next phase

Chorus

Just before I'm gone as I'm drawin' out my final breath
Please don't forget that this is just merely a physical death
And I poured my soul into these works that you can always get
And I lived my life the way I should n' I got no regrets

Verse 3

Along the way this life gave a lot of brick walls
And that don't change that's why I'm careful where my words fall
It's true when they tell you that your word is all you got
That's why I'm so consistent n' I ain't never gonna stop
If these words are weapons then this artillery's pretty deep
And im'a go all out without any doubt until this soul's released
Just know when I die that I went out doing what I love to do
These words are etched in the veins of time now just for you

Chorus 2x

Just before I'm gone as I'm drawin' out my final breath
Please don't forget that this is just merely a physical death
And I poured my soul into these works that you can always get
And I lived my life the way I should n' I got no regrets
