Intro:
(Uh!) Just so y’all know for the record this ain’t no rap song.
True, hip hop is what I do, but it’s not who I am
But this sh** right here is who I am…
Listen….

Verse 1:
Feeling all alone tryna keep a positive mindset
Living in a cold world, at times I wonder why I still sweat
maybe cos I’m tryna lead a life of positivity
in a world mixed with hate, greed, and negativity
dear Lord you know I show love
but most of the time hate is what I get in return
and most of the time it hurt so bad, that I wish I didn’t have a heart,
danm I wish I could pay ’em back,
but I forgive on time like my mum
Danm! Men I’m just tryna be successful
so freaking bad that I contemplated dropping outta school
but a voice kept asking like what u resort to
if the rap game doesn’t pay u in the end; a criminal?
Nah! For my definition of true success
is more than putting egbezi tha rap scientist on everybody’s lips
or being rich and famous with a couple of cars and cribs
or with the most amazing wife on earth raising up my wonderful kids
But to be able to touch lives with my lyrics
maybe lay a good for them youths out on our streets
Urge ’em how to live a life of love and honesty
a life of faith and patience even in phase of trials
I just don’t wanna be remembered as being just another rapper
but rather something like the nigga that gave voice to the voiceless
and hope to the hopeless
And I hope that I make it before they put me in a casket

Hook:
As I embark on this
pursuit of happiness
I’ll keep praying and hoping my faith don’t fade away
Cos I believe somehow,
I believe someway
We gon’ make it through the storm into a brighter day

Verse 2:
I don’t see myself above anybody thug/
I’ve always believed in equality and justice for all/
so keeping myself from haters doesn’t mean that I’m a snub/
It’s just that im out for a greater purpose like Jesus dying on the cross/
But, no one knows my struggle/
They only see the trouble/
Yo! homey chill I ain’t trynna be Makaveli the general/
All I was trynna say is that
even in the midst of ma
real gees and fam,
a n**ga still be feeling lonesome/
Smiling through pain with my heart bleeding internally/
The outside looks plain, but the scars are hidden inside of me/
Trynna back out from my life of sin;
but it seems I’m trapped here/
demons beneath my skin;
at times I wonder how they got here.
A couple nasty deeds, but for the greater good/
so good God please forgive me mum hope u understand me too?/
I just wish that therapy could make those feelings go away,
but then intoxication was danm effective in keeping my head straight
From thinking about those brothers starving next door/
for the emptiness I felt losing a sister we both cared for/
and for easing all the pressure
and the pain that I done endure
in the game, so I don’t end up
being a monster that they can’t stop/
But smile for the right path is what I’ve chosen/
me keeping my composure, just pray that I don’t lose it/
me standing on a bomb; just pray they don’t defuse it/
so I could blow up and make u proud with this music/

Hook [2x]
As I embark on this
pursuit of happiness
I’ll keep praying and hoping my faith don’t fade away
Cos I believe somehow,
I believe someway
We gon’ make it through the storm into a brighter day

Outro :
Yo! RSQ thanks for the beat men
I’m outta here…
