lyrics

I thank God I'm alive now I'm trying to live
I wake up, and hi-five like we little kids
then we off into the fire, so whatever will
let it be, I will be STILL...
and that's me, but I ain't saying that it's perfect
it's plenty I don't like, complaining ain't worth it
I'm strong enough to fight
so when you living day to day and say we only trying to eat
but all I got is cereal? Gone eat them Fruity Pebbles G
hard times need a rebel, B
from the Southside, where the bass got us staying where the trouble is
trying to throw lemons and salt on my winnings
so my business, is selling LEMONADE and pretzels
what is half empty? man it's always something
if life taught me nothing it's always something
and you can cave to it, and be a slave to it
but you gon end up OK, so TODAY

Got a 100 dollars left and I owe 112 but still
STILL DON'T IT FEEL ALRIGHT
I got a quarter tank of gas, and I gotta make it last, I'll pass
STILL DON'T IT FEEL ALRIGHT
I got a gig that feeling it's killing my soul, oh no
STILL DON'T IT FEEL ALRIGHT
(we gon' work it out)
Still don't it feel OOOOH
Still don't it feel OOOOH

Back on top, and starting to feel like a chef on Chopped
and only the hood know me like a black owned shop
and talking to them LKs J can get you killed, but still…
(don't it feel alright?)
with little youngings who don't vote is who I try to kick it
we stopped believing in the government, we politicking
and getting money, Bad Boys like the 80's Pistons
selling the drugs that they gave us is hell, this a hell of a system
how we sposed to get along, keep writing them songs
that hopefully right wrongs, and hopefully
man hoping is only half of the battle, we praying and doing nothing
like complaining bout being out of shape but you hate running
or my knees messed up!!! ha, it's always something
if life taught me nothing, it's always something
and you can cave to it, and be a slave to it
but you gon end up OK, so today
