lyrics

V1:XL
...lookin' at the world through each others eyes
...there's a whole lota hate for them other guys
...n a whole lot at stake for the other side
we need a whole lota changin each others minds
...there's a whole lot of blame for somebody else
but it's the same salty water when their mother cries
...some man will take a life to get that bloody wealth
tears runnin down her cheek, as shes askin why
why'd they gotta die...i ain't got the answer for her
if ya trapped and poor the chance of gettin out is gettin poorer
...but still i got this music i use it
an' treat it like a drug yeah, dependent i abuse it
it's ma crutch, an' without it i cud hardly stand
...that why i gotta try an' give a helpin hand
an' my advice is...ya gotta find ya passion
makin something outa nothing, tryna make that somethin last

HOOK:
i got a new lense...changed ma perspective
...flipped life on it's head quick, said f this
tryna find a better way to get this, fullfilment
the type of life i want, you couldnt buy, u gotta build it x2

V2:XL
...lookin at the world through ma mothers eyes
...i learned u gotta try, yo you gotta strive
...you taught me how to think for ma self
you and dad gave me morals...the love an' the health
always hoped i'd excel, now i XL
tryna spread ma self on the sheet, tryna sell
but don't put me in a box, don't put me in a cell
tryna make it to the charts, will i win will i fail?
...still i gotta show you that am grateful
..an' didnt waste what you placed on the table
...an' made able...struggled for them years
when you coulda done what others did an' sat an' drank beer
tryna take away the fear, but you showed me how to see from another view...
the perspective, i sat back reflected
i took what you gave me an' tried to perfect it
...jus like the time an' life you gave me yeah this shit is precious

HOOK:
i got a new lense...changed ma perspective
...flipped life on it's head quick, said f this
tryna find a better way to get this, fullfilment
the type of life i want, you couldnt buy, u gotta build it x2
