PROD. VANITAS命死 (soundcloud.com/vanitas567)
Hey its Brando, 2 decades flew right out the window.
life is like a rental, my scars are like mementos.
take it back to day one, my mom dad and they had me,
born in North Miami, life was looking happy.
Couple years later yeah they split, like like my shit, when my momma heard her son was fucking up on all his shit, scared to go home knowing that she gon crack the fucking whip.
let me show you as a child what the fuck perfection is.. right?
she dropped my daddy like a bad habit. Felt the loneliness, and started growing on some bad habits,
selfish thoughts, leading me to take my life away from those who really love me..
I spent too much time feeling this self doubt.
too much time hurting my self with no way out.
too much time with my reflection like i hate you.
too much time obssessing perfection, berate you.
But now I’m 20 years old, and yes i stay on my toes, and i just want you to know, that yes, I’m so grateful to have somebody like you, to teach me all the way through, your past does not define you, the past is all behind you.
I hope you know theres not too many mothers like you
despite your mistakes I hope you know I idolize you
and every time I see you in pain I swear see my self.
and i just need you to know that momma, i love you.
I love you.
And when the wind blows, ill grow wings and fly away
When the wind blows, all this smoke will dissipate
Out the window, the sun shines on for better days
but for now i thank god for the way that i feel today.
Ain't no other way to wipe away this dismay.
Rather lay awake? Like y'all waiting for better days.
now you waste away powerless, lacking the sight to change.
I could tell you would be different, but for now your just a slave...
