Cryptic Wisdom - Play Your Cards Right lyrics

(Chorus: Cryptic Wisdom) Sometimes this life is not what you expect it to be You've gotta play your cards right If you're to earn the life you need I thought i had it figured all out So I went ahead and let it all out But what I know is that it's my doubt Eating it alive (Verse: Da Real Crisis) Whats life? Facing your problems to never run? Or not knowing where your next meal or check is coming from? See some think it's easy Some know what it is And some have multiple kids without the money for bibs Gotta be strong to get through and not fall for the bait You could get out if reality hits you early or late In this City that's for self we raised in hell But you could leave out the game quicker than Dave Chappelle Kids grindin hard for money like they need it for ransom Business minded Could've helped Hov make the deal with Samsung So instead of playing manhunt It's work and a handgun And the future they'll worry about that when the next plan come But these youngins only know what they see to be what they be The economy's so bad breathing air is a fee I had my way I saw life but now its more vivid There's no time for timid You see where I'm going with it (Chorus: Cryptic Wisdom) Sometimes this life is not what you expect it to be You've gotta play your cards right If you're to earn the life you need I thought i had it figured all out So I went ahead and let it all out But what I know is that it's my doubt Eating it alive (Verse 2: Da Real Crisis) First Snowden got lost Then Zimmerman got off Some artists got blacklisted proving they're not soft Sometimes you gotta just chill and learn to live another night If Goliath was smarter he would've learned to pick another fight I knew things were getting real when I could barely look At the news talking about them kids in Sandy Hook Whether the kid from Kriss Kross was sick or was using Rest in peace to him and the victims of the Aroura shooting When somebody speaks the truth you hear it from far On any street In any hood In any club In any bar So despite all the nonsense the bills and crap If you happy living through the day I'd drink to that While others are only caught up in smoke and drizz We getting ready for the next president whoever that is At times getting my point across is like a needle in hay But real people that been through it know I'm trying to say (Chorus: Cryptic Wisdom) Sometimes this life is not what you expect it to be You've gotta play your cards right If you're to earn the life you need I thought i had it figured all out So I went ahead and let it all out But what I know is that it's my doubt Eating it alive (Verse 3: Da Real Crisis) Figuring this world out is like reading a small script on small leaflets Or asking a magician to reveal all his secrets Got Apple not paying taxes over seas k**in A-Rod got caught and still made 100 million What you do for a living depends on your persona We lost 19 fire fighters doing they job in Arizona As we get out a recession and into a corporate vault I still shout out Obama because it's not his fault Everybody got they own view on things respectively If the economy's in jeopardy We could fix it all collectively So listen like this is coming out the mouth of your reverend The world don't spin just off one persons discretion I shout out all leaders that speak on issues large or small Because we'd be mangled if they did nothing at all So keep your head up like Pac and Big both being named king Because all walks of life they'll tell you the same thing (Chorus: Cryptic Wisdom) Sometimes this life is not what you expect it to be You've gotta play your cards right If you're to earn the life you need I thought i had it figured all out So I went ahead and let it all out But what I know is that it's my doubt Eating it alive
