    I’m lost, floating on a cloud of confusion, drifting like ash
    sifting through my emotions, fearing intruding thoughts of my past
    shifting gears like manual transmission trying to keep up with life
    transmitting negative energy, sharp remarks cutting like a knife
    I have no time for games, only video and board
    my mind was designed I think to serve the Lord
    but I’m not doing it, so I’m not serving my purpose
    concealing my feelings under women, weed and loud curses
    now I feel kinda bad when I visit churches
    I don't rehearse this, just thoughts bubbling up to the surface
    I can't suppress the regret that I made a few bad decisions
    I cut off a lot of my dreams with surgical precision
    now I’m in a labyrinth with no quick exit
    if only I’d used some common sense, I would have less stress
    life throws lots of curve balls, aye batter batter...swing!
    and I still haven't hit a homer, in spite of everything
    I haven't struck out yet, but I only have a couple left
    my lucks running out, all I have left is my son and my health
    my trust snuck out, I barely trust myself...
    I’m a poor man but have plenty of un-materialistic wealth
    I invest in the best thing possible, it has no monetary worth
    truth, and that makes me one of the richest men on earth
    I search and search but not positive what im looking for
    I’m stuck in a rut, hoping the future has positivity in store
    I’m hungry for love and thirsting for truth
    I’m fighting against conformity with nail and tooth
    I feel the weight of the world like atlas
    if I can only stay strong, it won't be too long before I’m past this

    true in God...

    holding up the world like atlas
    i felt like i took a lot if ish lying down
    like a mattress
    or bedspring
    i don't have plans to dominate the world like ming
    i just want something
    of me to be left
    when i'm gone with the wind
    my spirit is to strong to let them
    win
    but its hard trying to get
    the **** out of this life of sin

    tight true scribing man...i felt those...
    peace
