MacklemoreLife Is Cinema

I don't know why But it's like I can't stay quiet This is my voice I can't let it die inside me See I'll be scared if there wasn't a riot Pushin and pullin, grabbin some hair Pukin and fuckin up the sidewalk This battle makes it interesting I abide desires Like a dog pissin on the hydrant Just to spite the fire It's not to be taken lightly The page is a set of eyelids The booth is an instrument that God created To record us trying to find him But don't let the word throw you off Religion and spirit are two different pilots Just know that it's bigger than me and my ego When I'm flyin Take me higher I've got something to pray for Please leave me when I'm guided Who said that life is cinema This is epic, be present I'm right here Selfish, selfish, selfish me, yeah, me yeah Girlfriend, break-up, new one, one-night stand, cheat, cheat, repeat that Drug use, clean up, drug use, drug use, clean up, drug use, rehab Fuck you I suck dude, self-loathing, self-esteem, ego, then me again Put a soundcheck right in the middle A never ending quest to try and get fans There you have the beginning, a middle and a really shitty end Nah, give me a break through, can I get a montage, come on I need that Humble me, give me a conflict, a hardship, let me break through this cement They're gonna be so disappointed when they roll the credits in I realized that my movie sucked and I was the only one that could edit it Well the course, the chain of events, That would be the evidence, some say it's coincidence I say I found something greater than myself and started accepting it And I can see, feel, taste and smell again And I'm the only one with the hammer to break this shell I'm in It's gonna take me crackin' this mirror to finally be myself again Met my potential a long time ago and I'm not stopping til I resemble him (I got soul but I'm not a soldier...) © 2018
