lyrics

I’m so tired living check to check
Struggling to save my neck
I’m so tired living check to check
Why can’t I escape this mess

I’m the American Dream caught in between
The seems of life beyond schemes just to make my dream
I know the feeling of hopelessness and being broke
The same pair of shoes, 3 years, laugh and joke
You work 60 hours barely making ends
Stretching every single dollar till the penny bends
Eating roman noodles up as a healthy score
6 pack for a dollar, need I say more
Peanut butter but no jelly you think it’s funny
I grew up on food stamps cause we had no money
Look forward to bi-weeks, its pay day
Pay ya bills, and it’s looking more like dooms day
I gotta get myself out the only way I know
Ink drops on a loose leaf and let it flow
Put all my thoughts down carefully with out a hitch
Cause I refuse to continue living like this

I’m so tired living check to check
Struggling to save my neck
I’m so tired living check to check
Why can’t I escape this mess

I’m the American Dream, caught in between
The seems of sociological teams and the triple beams
Balancing the position of fatherhood and a social moth
I’d rather be home then run the streets like night hawk
Playing the game of false senses of securities
When mc’s try to battle, I release & let my mind free
I’m a man, I bleed like you
I’m a regular cup of Joe, without the cream or a clue
Working hard to stay afloat of the sunshine rays
When inside I feel bottled up with a sadness and rage
Knowing, nobody controls the fate of man but I
Continue to stumble forward all efforts of try
Refusing to loose and let the world swallow me up
Regardless of the pain see I will never give up
Conquer the world in the eyes of my precious angel
You can steal the substance it’s the mind that I dangle

I’m so tired living check to check
Struggling to save my neck
I’m so tired living check to check
Why can’t I escape this mess
