Ayy
Let me kick it to you right quick partner
Now that some gangstas a grown man
What matters more then the mistakes youve made, is what you able to learn from it
Big Phil...
This is for you pimpin'

Chorus - Justin Timberlake T. I.
Ohhhh (eyyy)
I've been travellin' on this road too long (too long)
Just trying to find my way back home (back home)
The old me is dead and gone, dead and gone
And ohhhh (eyyy)
I've been travellin' on this road too long (too long)
Just trying to find my way back home (back home)
The old me is dead and gone, dead and gone, dead and gone

Verse 1 - T. I.
Ever had one of dem days wish woulda stayed home
Run into a group of n****s who gettin' they hate on
You walk by
They get wrong
You reply then s**t get blown
Way outta proportion
Way past discussion
Just you against them, pick one then rush 'em
Figure you get your hair that's next
They don't wanna stop there now they bussin'
Now you gushin', ambulance rushin'
You to the hospital with a bad concussion
Plus ya hit 4 times
Plus it hit ya spine
Paralyzed waist down now ya wheel chair bound
Nevermind that now you lucky to be alive
Just think it all started you fussin' with 3 guys
Now ya pride in the way, but ya pride is the way
You could f**k around, get shot, die anyday
N****s die everyday
All over bull s**t, dope money, dice game, ordinary hood s**t
Could this be cause of hip hop music?
Or did the ones with the good sense not use it?
Usually n****s don't know what to do when their back against the wall so they just start shootin'
For red or for blue or for blo I guess
From Bankhead or from your projects
No more stress, now I'm straight, now I get it, now I take
Time to think, before I make mistakes just for my family's sake
That part of me left yesterday
The heart of me is strong today
No regrets I'm blessed to say
The old me dead and gone away

Chorus - Justin Timberlake T. I.
Ohhhh (eyyy)
I've been travellin' on this road too long (too long)
Just tryna find my way back home
(Back home)
The old me is dead and gone, dead and gone
And ohhhh (eyyy)
I've been travellin' on this road too long (too long)
Just tryna find my way back home
(Back home)
The old me is dead and gone, dead and gone, dead and gone

Verse 2 - T. I.
I aint never been scared, I lived through tragedy
Situation coulda been dead lookin' back at it
Most of that s**t didn't even have to happen
But you don't think about it when you out there trappin'
In apartments, hangin', smokin', and rappin'
N****s start s**t, next thing ya know we cappin'
Get locked up then didn't even get mad
Now think about damn what a life I had
Most of that s**t, look back, just laugh
Some s**t still look back get sad
Maybe my homboy still be around
Had I not hit the n***a in the mouth that time
I won that fight
I lost that war
I can still see my n***a walkin' out that door
Who'da thought I'd never see Philant no more?
Got enough dead homies I don't want no more
Cost a n***a his job
Cost me more
I'da took that a**-whoopin now for sure
Now think before I risk my life
Take them chances to get my stripe
A n***a put his hands on me alright
Otherwise stand there talk s**t all night
Cause I hit you, you sue me,
I shoot you, get locked up, who me?
No more stress, now I'm straight, now I get it, now I take
Time to think, before I make mistakes just for my family's sake
That part of me left yesterday
The heart of me is strong today
No regrets I'm blessed to say
The old me dead and gone away

Chorus - Justin Timberlake T. I.
Ohhhh (eyyy)
I've been travellin' on this road too long (too long)
Just tryna find my way back home
(Back home)
The old me is dead and gone, dead and gone
And ohhhh (eyyy)
I've been travellin' on this road too long (too long)
Just tryna find my way back home (back home)
The old me is dead and gone, dead and gone

Hook - Justin Timberlake
I turn my head to the East
I don't see nobody by my side
I turn my head to the West
Still nobody in sight
So I turn my head to the North
Swallow that pill that they call pride
That old me is dead and gone
But that new me will be alright

I turn my head to the East
I don't see nobody by my side
I turn my head to the West
Still nobody in sight
So I turn my head to the North
Swallow that pill that they call pride
That old me is dead and gone
But that new me will be alright

Chorus - Justin Timberlake T. I.
Ohhhh (eyyy)
I've been travellin' on this road too long (too long)
Just tryna find my way back home
(Back home)
The old me is dead and gone, dead and gone
And ohhhh (eyyy)
I've been travellin' on this road too long (too long)
Just tryna find my way back home
(Back home)
The old me is dead and gone, dead and gone, dead...

Prison gates closing sound...
