  • I'm free I'm free
    I'm free to be me
    But who shall I be
    My spirits on lockdown
    My dreams are all shot down
    I lost so much time it's so much on my mind
    See I lost control
    When my life became cold
    Then I found my soul
    In the darkness of a hole

    Left my addiction in the background of my past
    Bit it still stays with me so I have to move fast
    str8 out the gate gotta get myself together
    Cuz the weather stays cold and the nights are forever
    The track has got old
    Selling packs is not goal
    Get back in control
    Or go back in the hole
    Got a bag with some letters my id and some pictures
    A no promise of a job and a book full of scriptures
    Take blame for everything that put me into slavery
    Own up to my faults is how I found my bravery
    All the things I justified
    No longer enslaving me
    Unplugged from the system
    But connected to a agency
    That always got a place for me
    They say they gon wait and see
    If I find the man in me
    Or go back to insanity
    I'm looking for my family to pull up in a car
    To make me feel at home
    And leave my old home far
    Celebrate my freedom with out going to a bar
    Picturing my future with as a brand new star
    Back from the dead but I'm still writing out my eulogy
    Facing my reality looking at it truthfully
    My past is not beautifully written in the book of life
    It's usually hard trying to make things right
    I'm focused on a plan gotta move with motivation
    Get something in my hand then find elevation
    Everything im facing got my mind racing quick
    Chasing all the pieces trying to make it all fit
    Got a child I need to see
    That don't know how to acknowledge me
    And all I have to offer is a promise and apology
    I'm focused on defeating everything that I fear
    Just because you see me doesn't mean that I'm here
    I'm stronger than I ever was I'm clean and I'm clear
    Just because you see me doesn't mean that I'm here
    My mind steady moving thru time and space
    Contemplating everything that I'm going have to face
    No poison in my system no gun on my waist
    The past is moving fast I have no time to waste
