  • sometimes reality hurts

    I've lied beside a suicide
    been on the wrong side of a homicide
    You think you know me from the rain I've cried
    but you should see the haunting pain that I cry inside...

    Don't lie to me, society
    Your tricky ways won't set me free
    Reciting rhymes of my history
    force me to face my reality

    Laughter sometimes stalls behind these walls
    when I'm home all alone roaming these lonely halls
    The tequila sun rises...the whiskey moon falls
    Cocaine, Mary Jane...darkness calls

    So easily available to me in my dismay
    to cover up make it go away
    "Nothing lasts forever, live your life just for today"
    says the sign in my mind when the devil has his way

    I've had the prison blues wearing dark green shirts
    I've chased the dollar, the drugs, the drink and the skirts
    One conforms...or one converts
    Society's a liar...sometimes reality hurts

    D.O.A. I say...I was Dead On Arrival
    so I cry to the One who conquered death for my survival
    The Carnival of the Bound, founded by Satan, my archrival
    was shut down by the truth of my Bible revival

    So I pray every day to not live my life dead
    and I hold onto my faith, my kids are jumping on the bed
    and I live in the promises of God that I read
    so run, little demons...far away from my head

    I'll show you weapons of war you've never seen before
    given by He who is risen...the One that I adore
    No longer in prison, a war of love I now fight for
    because I was roaming in that hallway until He opened a new door...

    Stained by the tears of the past I entertain
    but Christ offered grace to replace all the pain
    His bloodstain for my tear stain
    I am I remain...
