Out of time

from by JXD





I gotta keep moving. Only a little time left.

Outta time, I need to put my life in check
Behind the eight ball and Ralph Greenleaf’s on deck.
gotta degree but still feel behind the curve
Cum-Laude on paper, but I think grades are absurd
Most would be asking, “what the heck? Gotta house, gotta car, gotta girl what next?”
I don’t mean disrespect for those less fortunate
but i think there’s something mentally wrong with me
My friend Ev with the pych’ degree
needs to eval’ me hastily
because not reaching my goals by 35 terrifies and frightens me
Don’t know why I feel this way, self made pressure-not sure, can’t really say
Maybe how I was raised as a kid-o
Maybe its Freudian and I can blame it on my id and ego
This is Winnebago, too big for me to grasp
Stay GMC, built to last, gotta keep moving, outrun the past, hurry, the sand in the hour glass is dropping fast

My mind is militant, I’m not the one
I’m a pycho with common sense, I’m kissin’ the sun
I’m a glutton for punishment, don’t wait for the gun
My attitude is diligence, run J run
If I was a billionaire I still don’t think I’d feel rich. don’t rush to judgment, bare with me kids.
I don’t think its about the money, because I could easily reach my goal, sell my soul, and come up with an illegal pyramid cash flow
Watch American Greed, and you’ll see what I mean
Makin’ money with consequences is easy
I think in my mind, if I don’t have a mountain to climb I feel like I’m wasting my time
This is why i stay on the grind, an 8 to 5 while doing my thing at night
I’m running a marathon, I’m under the lights
I’m pumping my arms trying to catch an invisible pack
I’ll keep running even if I have a heart attack
Inject me with adrenaline and I’ll bounce right back
Just keeping it real while you’re drinking Similac


You’re a jerk, you’re a dork, you’re a saint, a smart geek
All of that and more I embrace my inner freak
Took me Twenty years, to find the path to me, still searching
its the lost time that bothers me
Thankful that I didn’t wash it down with crown and jack
or slit my wrist, kick the chair out and end it fast
I gotta chance and plans to run my own huddle
taking skills from a short order cook and make it on the double
Study the chess knight, I’m trying to jump spaces avoiding the hard fight
reality settles in and I’m seeing the true light
Perseverance and hard work . . . thats the key right?
I can have faith in those words or make B line
Either way you cut it, I’m running outta time . . . I’m gone
