lyrics

My eyes have callouses and my hair is full of head wounds 
From trying to pick a brain wondering if I'm gonna get it soon
A letter to whom it may concern was self addressed it said you wait your turn
But I felt it best to take the earnings get a bed and make it firm
The sacred urn that I keep locked in my thoughts
Just opened like Pandora's box so I played it 'til the whore couldn't walk
And then I left stalking the road in wet socks and never stopped 'til I found the pot of gold that my head had dropped
(Long ago) along an old dusty rusty fence
Sat a boy thinking there must be something other than this bench
Kept a bunch of friends
A hero in his day dreams where nothing ends but in his life another story
Any chance to cut the glory he took it
drugged up in his rookie year of high school
He could make you know without saying a word that he liked you
So he did it, and never said shit except when he kept his manners
Making glances at ladies that he'd rather take the hand of
Ran love through his thoughts over time
life was open wide
And he stared at it with every broken stride but couldn't go inside
Starving for affection hoping his dreams could show him why
So his life began when he closed his eyes and he...

Said take from me from me take from me from me from me
(That's how the game goes, it's all the same yo)
It ain't funny funny ain't funny funny funny
(I don't complain though, just let the pain go)
Get away from me honey way from me honey honey
(But if you stay know I'm gonna take your help)
And everything else just stays sunny
(That's what it's like the parables of rap running life)

By the next year there was less fear, he'd matured
Still couldn't really talk to people so he'd speak to birds
Wasn't a nerd, wasn't a jock, and certainly wasn't hip hop though he tried to be
and that's why he wasn't, what sweet irony
The weed made him tired caffeine made him hyper
Became the odd mc out of a crew of graffiti writers
Cultivating views on how to win with what he had to lose
Refusing to be a face with just a bunch of fake tattoos
School wasn't difficult but he was still confused by the rules of engagement
so the tools of his trade when he met a person were always get observant
but stay distant
Listen to everything they had to say and mimic
Never felt peer pressure, choices were his own to make
No mistake wasn't a lesson breaching heaven's open gates
There was a girl now and he let her break his world down for the better
Made her everything he wanted adding stress but when he met her he said

take from me from me take from me from me from me
(That's how the game goes, it's all the same yo)
It ain't funny funny ain't funny funny funny
(I don't complain though, just let the pain go)
Get away from me honey way from me honey honey
(But if you stay know I'm gonna take your help)
And everything else just stays sunny
(That's what it's like the parables of rap running life)

Within a year he lost her fostering lots of lies
to stop the bleeding cauterize the wounds
to fill the space that occupied his room
Losing weight and gaining apathy
Was forced to choose a fate but hopefully this time one that would make him happy
New debates on whether moving way across the land could make a man from a child
honing his handstyles and his smile
Got the acceptance letter raps getting cleverly twisted
Over the feeling his life would've been better if he'd never existed
If ever he'd listen to the elders preaching purpose
He'd remember the person he was before his first kiss
Before the alcohol, cannabis, blow, ecstasy, cigarettes,
The nitrous oxide, mushrooms, and acid trips swept him off his feet
and offered to carry him off to sleep
And then he woke up on the wrong side of his throw up on his sheets
He was headed west next, SF to be specific
Left behind the life he'd known and swore he wouldn't miss it

Said take from me from me take from me from me from me
(That's how the game goes, it's all the same yo)
It ain't funny funny ain't funny funny funny
(I don't complain though, just let the pain go)
Get away from me honey way from me honey honey
(But if you stay know I'm gonna take your help)
And everything else just stays sunny
(That's what it's like the parables of rap running life)
