Off my chest

from by JXD





Check it out
I wanna get something off my chest

I’m solo on this track
No one on my six strapped to watch my back
Feelin’ like I got box full of fakes can’t hold em back
Shootin’ blanks like neutered cat
Uh huh, yeah
The metaphor I explore, is what holds my doubt
My internal conflict is what I’m speakin’ about
Wanna give up, throw up the white flag, but if I do, I know this man ain’t comin’ back
Indecision, I’m tearing apart, my souls flatlinin’ and insurance won’t cover the open heart
Fakers stop preaching on God, I see you in the devil's playground all day long
Oh well, pack my bags and my jewels, if you’re speak the truth, then I’ll see you in hell
Meantime, work the hot fields, endure the pain-stake
But can I keep fightin’ if I never taste the lemonade?

Hold on to my faith and friends
It’s struggle, but it ain’t the end
Talk about it, get it off my chest
Watch my spirits lift
Perspective , control my doubts
Find the light, breaks in the clouds
Shed the baggage, there we go
Get it off my chest, let it go

The more you struggle, the quicker ya sink
its quicksand baby, hold on to your dreams
I’m the mad hatter in this vision I see,
I’m caught in the wonderland lost sea
CSI couldn’t track me patrolling the beat
This ain’t allegory, its the mind of JXD
I hate, what this world has done to me
Mentally I’m a screwed up and crazy G
I’m a young black specimen: Fightin’ for the reckonin’
and every day I make it I’m pushing for the testament.
Systematic putting beats together, Music is the glue that holds me together
Shortage of real cats among fakes and frauds, can’t spot ‘em
princes made from frogs
No nonsense , I got goals to make.
I’m the notary man, I’m stampin’ the date
