ECG - When Faith Met Thought and Ambition was Born lyrics

I was born an old soul with an ignorant mind Thinking I could grow forever if I'm so inclined Never one to wait or follow couldn't stand in line Like any child I was wild but developed with time Some developed their minds some developed addictions Most developed an affinity for simply sitting Me I stayed around the studio and worked on written Operating with precision try'n to find whats missing From my soul and I know most of those who sat Where caving to the same flaws I was working at Its amazing how a gods never based on fact How no matter what you love faith the base that Yet so few see polished gla** with faith in what looks back Imitation taught you how to talk walk and act But perfection didn't raise you so theirs plenty you lack Don't let the fiction you where given start to warp your math You can grow and grow you don't get but old Cause a dreams a dream and a plans a plan They could never coincide guess I'll never understand Cause still I'm steady working with this pen up in my hand You can grow and grow you don't get but old Cause a dreams a dream and a plans a plan They could never coincide guess I'll never understand Cause still I'm steady working with this pen up in my hand Lets talk about liquor No lets talk about weed They talk about failure Then lets talk about me Lets talk about cutting cla** with no future to see Lets talk about giving everything to make Cd's Lets talk about a 9 to 5 until college done Lets talk about the real workers And lets talk about the bums Lets talk about what feels intelligent And what feels dumb Lets stop the talk and take some action while my a** still young The kid that wants to fight fires never inhaled fumes The one that wants to be a cop never dealt with goons The one that wants to be a doctors never been on call We see the goal without the struggle that's the kid in us all And to many switch the goal once the struggle begins And when the problems start they make that switch again Its not until you learn to sacrifice you learn to win So ignore those claiming comfort and keep getting it in You can grow and grow you don't get but old Cause a dreams a dream and a plans a plan They could never coincide guess I'll never understand Cause still I'm steady working with this pen up in my hand You can grow and grow you don't get but old Cause a dreams a dream and a plans a plan They could never coincide guess I'll never understand Cause still I'm steady working with this pen up in my hand They train me like a pet while I beg for dollars The pay checks my treat and the ties my collar But still I'm writing tracks when that work days done Cause you can train a dog to sit but you can't teach him not to love to run Where I Am's not where I'm from no I've never been a bum Hustle while they sit and watch the way these f**ing dollars come Oh my god they got him young took a lot and taught him none Told him he should follow tried to keep him on the bottom wrung I found the way they bought the bottles and the bullsh** bothersome So I got a book a blunt and read while buddy bought a gun Sacrificed to learn while he sold his soul to profit some See the dream he seen was sold he acted before thought begun He didn't plan or sacrifice he took the dream they brought to him I saw him through the gla** and ask his a** why he had acted dumb He said he needed faster funds told me that his mind was numb So make your dream a plan a plot and never use a borrowed one You can grow and grow you don't get but old Cause a dreams a dream and a plans a plan They could never coincide guess I'll never understand Cause still I'm steady working with this pen up in my hand You can grow and grow you don't get but old Cause a dreams a dream and a plans a plan They could never coincide guess I'll never understand Cause still I'm steady working with this pen up in my hand
