Pigeon John - Life Goes On

It goes one for the money, two for the show
Three for my ni***s who got in the backdoor
Four for the honey dips, five for my bros
And death is my breath kept it in and no flow
And it's so slow, it seems my life don't grow
And my raps only collect dap so so
It feels every word that I write seals my fate
Losing every single one of my friends to date
And it's Kuwait in my mind, a continual war chiming
In my head yelling that the past ain't dead
But it's alive and well with many stories to tell
Exiting one cell only to a new jail
Destined to fail it seems, and my positivity is trapped in dreams
But I gotta let it shine to affect my team
I can't go back, gotta press on black yo


Life goes on, no matter if your life is tattered
And you can't fix what went wrong
Life goes on, the pattern in your life is scattered
You're a hook in your own theme song
Life goes on, you're a fighter but the grip is tighter
And you know that you can't stand long
Life goes on, girl it's gonna get brighter
Life goes on, boy it's gonna get brighter, life goes on

(Abstract Rude)
If ever you're hungry, should never feel
Lonely if God is with you
If I go, know that I will make a return, give me frankincense
Myrrh it's ashes in the urn, but learn, life goes on
Chant the Psalm, I sing Solomon songs
all of them troubles be gone we like on with this
I'm sickest rhyme kickin' consciousness
At times slipping, that's why I'm taking risks
It's us prosecuted without cause
the long arm always chases an outlaw
Who did nothing to no one
They just don't understand who He is where He comes from
But I know, when you're playing their game
And stuck on this here plane, you'll always be fair game
Survival, you're liable to go nuts, but still gotta hold up
I know it gets tough, believe
