Lyrics:

//Verse 1
The eyes of a child can mend a broken soul,
Toting smoke, taking notes while I wander this broken road,
Hoping quotes could surpass expired lives of those opposed,
Holy ghosts, and to those forgotten souls, raise a toast,
I’ve seen kids come out of broken homes,
Begging for government loans,
That they can pay through debt or death,
From all the drugs their friends condone,
Seen it in my ends alone,
It only ever ends alone,
They live their lives up on the streets,
The stains of blood cement the code,
I’ve seen mothers work one shift,
Two shift, night shift, day shift,
Making sure their kids stay fit,
And away from probation,
Their chance is waiting, they dreaming,
Stay scheming behind all the backs,
I guess most looks are deceiving,
Your closest friends could be demons,
You wouldn’t notice,
I suggest you chase a bag and keep the focus,
Cause friends can turn to vultures,
And pick the skin from bone when life's the coldest,
Then turn to filling caskets just to fill their quotas,
Don’t say I never told ya,
It feels as sharp as laser rays or razor blades,
For days and days, I wade away,
On open scars for paper planes,
I paved the way, to take the course that nature takes,
So when my grave is laid, I’ll never fade away,
I plan to overstay my stay,
 
//Hook
Lay in bed (laid in bed)
Late at night (late at night)
Under my pillow keep the tooly by my side,
They can test (they can test)
They can fight (they can fight)
They can bark, I just never see em bite,
Make em rest (rest in peace)
See the light (ain't it bright)
Ain't know the feeling till you truly seen the sight,
Ain't it shit (hey, wait)
Ain't it life
If you're wanting something good, you gotta pay the price
 
//Verse 2
if success had cost your life are you willing to pay the price
and people selling weed get felonies, did it to stay alive
they have specific jobs in mind, had shifts in the day and night
while they sit and talk a lot sat wishing that they would try
wage is minimum they poverty stricken where they preside
pay is sent to them, don't cause any difference in daily life
lack of education, and poverty causing crime
rather get the payment then solving problems with life
a lot of them aren't vicious, they victim of circumstances
we could keep them out of prison if kids had just learned to manage
if we taught them different choices, and given them several chances
they could possibly avoid it, still living at disadvantages
pointing blame at the culture that the system created
avoiding change, deny America's systemically racist
see it with my eyes but people blame it on the music,
keeping up the fight, and keep the faith and never lose it
 
//Hook
Lay in bed (laid in bed)
Late at night (late at night)
Under my pillow keep the tooly by my side,
They can test (they can test)
They can fight (they can fight)
They can bark, I just never see em bite,
Make em rest (rest in peace)
See the light (ain't it bright)
Ain't know the feeling till you truly seen the sight,
Ain't it shit (hey, wait)
Ain't it life
