Life aint always what it seems
What it seems to Be

Life aint always what it seems
What it seems to Be

Verse 1

Not a stranger to pain
Drugs in my veins
Breakin hearts
Bein detained
I really wanna change
Not picture perfect
But hey

Escorts, shoppin, downtown coppin
Get me feelin right
Usin distractions
Fillin holes and
Empty voids in my life

A bad boy, rebel
Im trouble, less angel
More devil Im
A star that fell
Been through hell
Guess what I'm still alive
The underdog
Beat the odds
Survived, I'm doing just fine

I done seen a lotta shit
Victim of a lot of it
Try to rise above it with
Supression and emotionless
But blacking out the pain it
Never really seemed to do the trick
Wish I could find some good intent
Be someone worth investin in

Just when I think I seen it all
(Just when I think I seen it all)

Stand corrected every time
(Yeah yeah yeah)

Hook

Life aint always what it seems
What it seems to Be

Life aint always what it seems
What it seems to be

Verse 2

Growing up no one thinks
They'll end up alone
Addicted
Out on the streets
Steal just to eat
Got no peace
And each day that repeats
Hit that piece
Find some release
But deep inside your soul
It depletes and recedes

Can't look at yourself in the face
You lose sleep and each day
And that gains is your weight
And the inward hate
Can't discuss the disgust
How you're fucking up with anyone
Say that you're done
Then shoot up that last one

Never did I ever think
That stories such as this would be
Familiar to a man like me
Or friends or even family
Or someone that you knew or loved
And said goodbye because of drugs
Wish somehow we could all wake up
Instead of shake our head and judge
Instead of shake our head and judge
