Witt Lowry - Dreaming With Our Eyes Open lyrics

Stuck in the same room in the same mood Everybody tried to tell me what I can't do Everybody tried to tell me that I changed too And I changed lanes from you lame dudes It's been a minute since I spilled my pain Had to take a step back and look at life in a different way If you want the change, you gotta be the change Now we're all the same Nobody wanna take the reins, nobody wanna push their brain Nobody will admit that they're fake for the facts they claim You see we're all imperfect in a perfect way And while we work all day, we're all work no play We're slaved to the loans and the bills we pay You consume a double cheese when the radio play Mainstream, Mickey D's and my sh** gourmet I've been up for seven days straight Trying to figure out my fate Trying to figure out any way to put food on my plate But I sold a few tee's so I'm eating today Okay, I'm doing okay, could probably do better Came home to a letter, eviction I know I don't fit your description of a rapper But me I'm a clearer, they threw all the cheddar I know everything that glitter ain't gold Life is the clay, you too busy to mold Time here is taking it's toll We spend all our time without pa**ion and then we get old Was told, I should go quit But none of you see all the letters I get from these kids Who hurt from within and don't wanna live And tell me my music is all that can give them hope Yeah, all we need it some hope And they tell me their family's broken and broke They using my music to cope I've been on that boat, held down by a rope Held down by a string, y'all looking for things I'm looking to change the perception of people and all of the beautiful things that it brings Yeah, record in my closet, don't make enough profit Y'all used to have morals and somehow you lost it Don't care about the money I spend on my coffin I care bout the people attending And often we're lost, lost in this world We're selfish to think, I could find happiness in a girl We're selfish to think we're elite, we destroy and deplete Our whole planet no smarter than squirrels So who wants to talk about that? Who wants to talk about facts Maybe I'd be in your mag if I added tunechi or bap-bap Or I talked about weed when I rap But f** all of that, the voice of the youth The voice of the people, the real and the truth The voice of the one who had nothing to lose I speak for a heart that's been broken and beaten and bruised I'm tired of holes in my shoes Tired of having to move, tired of coming unglued Tired of cleaning your table and serving you food We are what we choose, if only you knew the sh** that I've seen I can't tell if I'm lucid or living the dream I don't do it for me, do it all for the team I remember back living when I was a teen And my grandma she said I was worthless And my teachers said I had no purpose And my mama she said I was perfect I'm sitting on Twitter while I should be working on verses You're worth it, and when you feel weak The deeper the trench, the higher the peak See y'all are a piece of my legacy Cause you believe we can be anything and I wanna be... me
