Track Name: caught up in the misery (ft. northside nate)
why we living to be caught up in the misery
life is just a dream
life is just a scene of a movie we make-believe
one day we may achieve
anything is possible why don't we wait and see

this planet's colder than an iceberg
slice worms doin us grimey throughout our life's work
the vice curbs success rates and our sights turn
to liquor bottles and loaded hollows seeing our life's worse
we tried to fight the hurt but they continue dealing it
we feel the hits, even if we keep it real they reveal their sins
by harming innocence minds wandering tenements
tryna conquer the odds that they'll make it outside their element
it's not high enough, politicians lied to us
gold oil and diamonds is their meaning of "in god we trust"
i mean it's obvious that mentality swallowed us
you see we switched love with all the lust
and there's no harmony trust, the only problem that we ain't solving is us
keep us divided so it's easy to target the young
now the depression rises, if it ain't suicide we not providing
gotta cry an island to receive some guidance
why bother trying's what we ask, they gettin denied
every time you reach for someone kind you're amongst the blinded
nobody cares, stay in fear, once upon a time
the creatures that appeared called human beings used to have a spine
and now we just afraid of everything
full of rage forever claiming we gon change for better days
but then we wake and let the masses determine a better place
for us to occupy our time so you let em control your fate

why we living to be caught up in the misery
life is just a dream
life is just a scene of a movie we make-believe
one day we may achieve
anything is possible why don't we wait and see

surely there's a better way
maybe you just lack the self esteem to separate, follow the dream they entertain
it's not reality, that's why we grieve and feel ashamed
cause there's a standard that so many can't meet without the pain
it's like we really gotta slave but keep a smile on
it's why the medication you trying is getting piled on
but it ain't satisfyin, you try reachin the dial tone
too late. you never liked the feeling of crying alone
no pride in the soul, it's physical living
what's a miracle, i've never had a spiritual visit
enough of hearing you, i'ma get back to living in prison
a mental slave like who paid to follow my opinion
cause they never will, it seems denial is a better feel
even when you carry a gift you need to get a skill
so many lying, they say their spirit is quite fulfilled
but I know that's a pc response cause this life is real
so our vice is pills. you keep swallowing
like a bottomless pit and these demons you keep following
your mind is lost cause your vision it seems promising
the problem is you're only living to please your audience
ain't tryna be yourself these these days
being confidence enough for you to fight these waves
"what a life", we say. it carries two meanings
what's your reason for losin if every life feels pain
actin like you got it bad, while there's people without the time to stress
only focus on making dollars so all the kids are fed
and they far from idiots
but to survive they gotta totem poles and flip rocks like they indigenous

why we living to be caught up in the misery
life is just a dream
life is just a scene of a movie we make-believe
one day we may achieve
anything is possible why don't we wait and see
