ECG - Failure lyrics

[Intro] It was just a mixtape, it should've been more I don't think I'll ever get what I'm working for In fact, you'll never hear this, I'll probably never make it But even if I did I bet it happened in a basement [Hook] It's failure, my familiar friend It's called failure, cruel as she's ever been It's called failure, seen time and time again It's laid on thick, as my patience grows thin It's failure, my familiar friend It's called failure, cruel as she's ever been It's called failure, seen time and time again But I'll face it with a grin until I finally get a win [Verse 1] She's my on again, off again, on again lover Even when she's not around I swear I'm always thinkin' of her I'm with her so much that I can't help but wonder How the hell she has time for all you other motherf**ers My buddy said it's really only proof I tried Missed the game winning shot, then he f**in' cried Cause a failure is a failure and a lie is a lie So a failure's still a failure when it's wholly denied Some people hide from it Some people die from it Some people exploit to market and thrive from it Some people overcome it matter fact I've done it Studied every lesson that one could derive from it The first few lines you hear when the song starts Were written way back when failure tore me apart Left without a dime to spend or a blunt to spark I was headed for success but I missed my mark Learned to switch mentalities and face what challenged me Sometimes you lose, that's the harsh reality But improve through the sh**ty and the good gets great And those who choose to wait only seal their fate [Hook] It's failure, my familiar friend It's called failure, cruel as she's ever been It's called failure, seen time and time again It's laid on thick, as my patience grows thin It's failure, my familiar friend It's called failure, cruel as she's ever been It's called failure, seen time and time again But I'll face it with a grin until I finally get a win [Verse 2] It's a hell of a mentality Not everyone's a fan I think you cease to be a child When your dream becomes a plan I guess I'm sayin' when you work Work for something real ‘Cause every ant should feel proud of the mountain they build That way the workers work regardless of the standard they're held to If stopping was an option I bet this b**h would've fell through I still do feel it's my duty to build new I see few real it's only natural they fear true Lyricism written as I give ‘em a clear view Of honesty, abolishing these lies that steer you Success is made of failure which you won't let near you So it often gets rejected by the few it appears to Me, I play with failure on a regular basis I love her sense of humour but I think she hates it As I get to know her more and more I get to see her less and less I mean she used to stay around me like she was obsessed It's almost like she doesn't like it when I treat her with respect Always b**hing to her family like I'm nothing but stress Maybe I should blame her sister, see that's how we met Sometimes I think she's only bitter that I f**ed success Yes, quite the family Sweeter than candy Both tryn'a lock change chain and brand me Are you followin' the plot or should I draw it in crayon See life's bigger than ‘em both I hope you f**s understand me [Hook] It's failure, my familiar friend It's called failure, cruel as she's ever been It's called failure, seen time and time again It's laid on thick, as my patience grows thin It's failure, my familiar friend It's called failure, cruel as she's ever been It's called failure, seen time and time again But I'll face it with a grin until I finally get a win It's just a mixtape (my familiar friend), it should've been more I don't think I'll ever get (as cruel as she's ever been) what I'm working for In fact, you'll never hear this (Seen time and time again) I'll probably never make it (But I'll face it with a grin until I finally get a win) But even if I did I bet it'd happen in a basement
