Inspiration: Blu


Every day is like a blank canvas
Carving my initials in the planet like I brand it
Hand picked to live this life we take for granted
Like a child with an upright bass, we can’t stand it
Smiling through the trouble we face, trying to manage
My way without pumping my brakes and staying stagnant
Cause I can sit on my ass or just imagine
The madness I did on my path and paint the canvas


Sometimes I get discouragedI look around and, things are so weak

People are so weak


Sometimes I feel like crying

Sometimes my heart gets heavy

Sometimes I just want to leave and fly away [fly fly fly, like a dove]

Sometimes I don’t know what to do with myself [ow!]

Passion takes over me

I feel like a man

Going insane

Losing my brain

Trying to maintain

Doing my thing

Hey hey hey hey hey

Put my heart and soul into this y’all

I hope you feel me

Where I am, to wherever you are

Sometimes I don’t want to be bothered

Sometimes I just want a quiet life, with

Me and my babies, me and my lady

Sometimes I don’t want to get into no war

Sometimes I don’t wanna be a soldier

Sometimes I just wanna be a man. -Mos Def

Sometimes I wonder what life’s about

Sometimes I wonder why the lights are out

Sometimes I wonder why I like to shout

Sometimes I wonder, what the lies are about

Sometimes I see things I shouldn’t have seen

Sometimes I wonder why, I’m a hood and a fiend

Sometimes I look at what I’ve become and cry

Sometimes I, get on that BULLSHIT and be ready to die

Sometimes a nigga that’s yo’ man might get it

Sometimes even though it’s sweet, if you ain’t wit it

Sometimes the pain is too much to BEAR

Sometimes it RAINS too much to care

Sometimes if you, don’t watch yo’ back it’ll cost you

Sometimes you wonder, who would give a FUCK if they lost you

Yet sometimes the sun shines around the clock

But sometimes it’s dark, and hell is hot -DMX
