on the line

by prince
(New York, NY queens, Hollis NY )

Looking at me now I can see my past
Damn
What's life been good for my ass
I light it up to make the pain pass
But all that shit just keeps on coming back
I wish life was how it used to go
Walk down the street
No one didn't wanna slit your throat
But I guess that was just the past
And 2015 might be our last

Lives on the line
Here we are again
From thick and through
I really had no friend
My mother always said
I would be shit back then
Now I'm talking to myself
Again

I got no truth up in my lies
Only darkness you see in my eyes
No ones with me when I'm all alone
To correct me when I'm doing wrong
I see the flick that makes the flame
That's the pain I see everyday
I see the souls that are running from
The fire that's burning them up



Lives on the line
Here we are again
From thick and through
I really had no friend
My mother always said
I would be shit back then
Now I'm talking to myself
Again

I'm running from the things I saw
Making me wanna kill myself
I'm scared to look through my eyes
I think this world has killed me inside
I hope that I can find the one
That can make this world not feel like a bum
I'm not a shame what I have became
Just mad my mother didn't do a thing




Lives on the line
Here we are again
From thick and through
I really had no friend
No one ever said
Why people kill each other yet
They told us we can
Protect the people who wasn't born yet



Lives on the line
Here we are again
From thick and through
I really had no friend
My mother always said
I would be shit back then
Now I'm talking to myself
Again
