lyrics

Lord Knows

Well we’ve done tried...
lord knows best...
Praying hands to the side
We've been put to the test...
And seemingly failed...
yo, one more round,
before the hammer hits the nail..
the hammer hits the nail..

Your life's a mess
While you steady broadcast
Running ya mouth, but it's all trash...
Coming up short for the long pass
curse when the god blast!
getting burned like hot baths
full of acid in the tub
or the shit on the porcelain
how many times must we
reinforce again...
you're the short end of the stick
watch it all transcend...
No remorse for you friend...
this is true heavyweight...
project blowed and mass men
dope reads the caption...
fuck your reaction..
We’re blessed with the game
your a guest, sign your name
ain’t no questions of how...
I manifest and vow
to hold it down / profound
but suckers wanna test me in a round
Unable to expound
So the pressure compounds
While the styles compile and astound
Every king will be crowned
Or jester to be clowned
fate or luck falls
into the footsteps
wallow in them hood reps
thinking it's all good
when it's quiet as kept...
A trail of shit, gets left behind you...
Nobody likes you...
except losers and lame fucks
It’s one in the same
they all fucking sucks...
like the sign of the time
So stop feeding them ducks....
hey, we put one in the brain
then paint the town red
with what's left of your empty ass head....
like stir of echoes
served when you mettle...
puppet on the strings
call me gepetto...
the pendulum swings
I’m hella unsettled...
G O D's
Killing you Devils!
Pause to the Rebels...
extra flawed in your perils..
through ya hearts wit an arrow
got you in my sights at end of the barrel
Dropping insights for the shallow and the narrow...
it’s a cradle to the grave
dropped from the label
cause you can't behave...
that's a bad hand played...
lacking demand on a road unpaved...
off to the side, lost and estranged...
I’m a beast on the beat
unleashed from the cage...
and you're a pet in the petting zoo...
perspective's reality
must’ve got ahead of you...
butt of the verse,
getting smoked like residue!
no sense of self worth...
or halfway sensible...

Well we’ve done tried...
lord knows best...
Praying hands to the side
We've been put to the test...
And seemingly failed...
yo, one more round,
before the hammer hits the nail
the hammer hits the nail..
the hammer hit the nail..

So why do we try?
And waste all our time!!!
Well you wanna reach one, teach one,
but they just outta scope...
on the borderline of dope...
cos they sorta can't cope...
always coming up short
throw ya hands in the air
with the mission to abort!!!
Well who are we to judge...
hate or begrudge...
When intentions are good
And it’s done out of love...
Or at least we think..
Til, we hear ourselves speak...
But we all contradict
And live as hypocrites...
So what's it all mean...
like heaven or hell...
When your intentions are well...
well you know how it goes..
both the ups and downs, and how it flows..
mistakes get made and the pains still grow...
like a product of environments
these seeds we sew...
the truths be told, life's cold as snow...
from youth to adult...
shit gets ill and feels difficult...
everything's real and still metaphysical...
Life’s lessons to learn...
we're all just students...
So we all guess and get burned...
With room for improvement...
but nobody's perfect!
so stay in your lane, and serve your purpose
and try and maintain before wires get crossed
And you lose your signal and starts to short circuit....
ringleaders and clowns of this big top circus....
or cheerleaders and groupies doing hip hop service...
so pick one that fits one
and don't play victim
don’t play the victim

Well we’ve done tried...
lord knows best...
Praying hands to the side
We've been put to the test...
And seemingly failed...
yo, one more round,
before the hammer hits the nail
the hammer hits the nail..
the hammer hit the nail..
