    GOING NOWHERE



    Designer clothes hide insecurities
    Countless nights of empty intimacy
    In your quiet time you remember the moon
    Watching its reflection photograph you

    This was not the image you wanted to see
    At some point you stopped believing in yourself
    Hard knocks left you fighting for your freedom

    Flashy cars show your accomplishments
    Polishing prison bars didn’t seem worth your quick fixes
    Babies with no father’s making up stories
    My daddy’s a doctor with no degree
    My daddy steals as a role model for me
    My daddy doesn’t care about wanting more for me

    A dark future you’re looking towards
    Where you’ll land is of no worry
    Exhaling for relief
    More money
    More honey
    No drag races with the police

    Only nightmares with out love
    Daydreams of no trust
    Just living with just enough of nothing
    A fad waiting to be erased on a rap sheet!
