    Down to Earth

    If you look in my heart
    You won’t see nothing but dark
    I don been through some things
    And I know what it means
    To feel pain
    And be a shame of who you are
    And the way you look
    My life ain’t been no story book
    Many nights I’ve cried
    Many times I’ve lied to
    Survive
    You don’t know what I feel right now
    Cuz on the outside you see a smile
    Don’t tell me who I am
    Don’t tell me who I be
    Because no one knows I better than me
    To you my life is complicated
    All my actions premeditated
    Nothing I do is by mistake
    I’m all real never fake
    And you look at me and laugh
    Like something is funny
    Like you’ve taking something from me
    When actually it’s the other way around
    In the end I’m gon be the one knocking you to the ground
    But difference is you won’t get back up
    You ain’t tough even
    Your weak I see
    From the way you talk about me
    I look at you and I grin
    Cuz I know what you are within
    You’re a sad forgotten soul
    Who’s stories untold
    Me and you came from the same place
    Run the same race
    I know how you feel inside
    You ain’t gotta hide
    See somewhere down the line you got to much pride
    But I’m gona bring you back down to earth
    Before you get hurt
    I don’t know who lied
    But I’m gona tell you what’s true
    The earth doesn’t revolve around you
