Ivan B - Cemetery of Dreams lyrics

[Verse 1] This a letter for my brothers Out there working overtime Asking if they're stressing Man, they'll tell you "All the time" No money in your wallet Then it's always in your mind Cause even when you get paid You're still broke all the time Like what's the point of all these hours When you're having trouble saving it Money that you made Goes back to the man who paid you it What a painting called "American Dreams" This the land of democracy By American kings But you don't see the grounds But you do see the castles Even Slavery changes because you don't see the shackles And here I am Talking like I know and been through it all But it's like standing on a mountain Cause I'm seeing it all Cause the lady bussing tables Has been here for 20 years She's like 75 And she's like one of my fears And it's hard to just forget it I get it, it's for a debt But I'm looking at your smile And I'm wondering when you met it Breaks my heart cause I..... Know I'm saying goodbye When you give up on your dreams Twenty Years go by Funny how a living k**s lives But yet we still try To get it for someone else Man can't you see it doesn't feel right Am I tying an apron Or am I tying a noose Am I living a lie Or am I finding the truth Our life is full of obstacles Possible made impossible Shackles on your feet to make our lives a little comfortable [Hook] Don't let your dreams die Don't let your dreams die Don't let Them k** them Don't let Them k** them Don't let your dreams die Don't let your dreams die The world will k** them The world will k** them The world will k** them Don't you let it go I know things are looking numb right now I know things are looking numb right now And every morning is getting hard for you to get up And the pain on your neck won't seem to let up And things just won't just get better I promise it won't If you let your dreams die Don't you let your dreams die But it's just the world, that's just how it goes Don't let Them k** them Don't let Them k** them Don't you let it go [Verse 2] Drowning in fears I've been...fighting for breathe I've got a heart full of diamonds Come and open the chest Take you back to a time When I was thought of as less Writing lines to free my mind But they were hardly impressed See I swallowed what they told me But I couldn't digest Smiles on my face While I was awfully depressed I guess it got to me Even though I know it ain't true But the "Friends" that I had Were saying the same things too I think about it now I feel a pit in my stomach I drop a song nowadays They turn around like "I love it" Holding grudges at me But it's who I became There's fuel for the fire And this my core for the flame Now I shake there hands like "we good" But we "ayee" They hit me up Like "Come Through" Like "Thank you" But I "K' Put your heart on the table They end up pulling the trigger It's like nobody's with you Until they see you get bigger Only snakes, skunks and flies Saying they down for you Ironic when you were a waiter You see no one waiting for you That's just how it is If your content with 40 hours Please don't tell me how to live I'm dropping heat like Lebron But don't you get it We on Yeah, Everybody dreams But they're living it wrong I'm gone Life behind the scenes Let me tell you what I've seen The day you love a check is when you're k**ing your dreams [Hook] Don't let your dreams die Don't let your dreams die Don't let Them k** them Don't let Them k** them Don't let your dreams die Don't let your dreams die The world will k** them The world will k** them The world will k** them Don't you let it go
