L.Ball – USMC
(Hook) Hook, to bait 'em, rough waters, help me navigate them
Help me understand when I'm trying to explain it.
(Chorus) To you, for me, to see
The you inside is the you in me.
(Verse1) To get to a better place, I have demons I have to face. (Have to face)
The monsters underneath my bed, are the thoughts running wild through my head. (Head) 2x's
So I pick up a pen to say, where is it I am going today;
Writing it out, black and whiting it out, working it out,
There is a little boy involved, revolving doors do not solve. (Working on self) 2x's
The problems in the midst of this, is the epicenter of my selfishness.
(Verse2) Some say do as I say, not as I do,
But if I want what you got, I got to do it like you. (You) 2x,s
Build on it, break it down;
To where I get in tune to the sound.
Soon, from dusk to dawn, break at noon.
Right now I don't got it yet,
So I'm asking you the questions in my head. (Head) 2x's
Directions left unsaid, not longitude and latitude
Like changing to a different beat, I had better change my attitude,
For the better, that's the scarlet letter,
Everything everybody says, even now is breaking on down. (Breaking on down)
Teach me how to put the lyrics to music, the music is in mind, the rhythm, beat, and sound. How do I put it together. More to do.
