D-Lyt - Growing Up lyrics

[Produced by D-Lyt] [Verse 1] As a kid I used to think the world owed me so much sh** Robbed of a childhood I never got no loving Mom hungover or drunk again, bullies used to throw punches Didn't want to grow up in a life that said "so what, kid?" So as I got older I got a lot colder Pot smoker, loner, not sober I'd self-medicate to help elevate my mental state Didn't hesitate to smoke to generate some better days Time was moving forward but I was on some backward sh** Just trying to get high and do the stuff I couldn't as a kid School was easy, being blasted I still pa**ed that b**h The only thing that puzzled me was trying to find an acid trip What I never factored in was Zakk's piss was never clean Because all my d** were on fire like Katniss Everdeen But f** a job, that's my least concern The only thing I cared about was having weed to burn [Hook] [Verse 2] Flat broke but had to smoke I sat home everyday While all the kids I saw were getting jobs and getting paid But I was getting laid which to me is so much better so What the hell would I want to put forth any effort fo? Grow up? Nah, I'll just watch Cartoon Network Shows Adult Swim's the closest to maturity I'll ever go And Nicktoons has '90s Are All That So why worry about applying and callbacks? Didn't want to face the sh**, just wanted to stay a kid Peter Pan I hate that prick, I never flew away with him Because the clock keeps ticking time to face that it's the way it is Friends are growing up, guess I'll take the hint Because not everything in life you do is what you wanted to You gotta push through and do what you gotta do I'm realizing that now, I hope I'm not too late I'm sorry that I took so long I was afraid but I'll change [Hook] [Verse 3] So I got up off my a**, had lost control, I got it back Caught up fast, dropped the past, off the pity pot at last Life is all I have, to spend it b**hing would be such a waste Yeah I was afraid but it's just time for me to come of age Because I'm older don't mean life's over Not a stoner, sober, got closure Now my pee is free of THC and I volunteer Seems 2015's bound to be an awesome year My girl and I are broken up, I didn't say it's perfect But I'm still growing up I finally got my permit I'm looking for a job and like me it's not working But that ain't no reason to give up and stop searching Everyone wants to stay a kid, that's a fact of life But life is what you make of it, you age a bit, that's the price As a kid I used to think the world owed me so much Now I know I owe it, I'm growing up [Hook + Outro]
