lyrics

Chorus:
We won’t last forever, but we all gon’ try anyway
Cause no matter the weather, we always wait for rain
To wash away what we better let go down the drain
I wonder why we never did paradise everyday…

Verse 1:
Let me that cold play in my chest/deep breath, blowing smoke with no regrets/pair of dice on the rearview rolled double six/trouble t. rubble when I take time to reminisce/ashes to ashes, this dust is what numbness gets – out there is a hustle/with no time for where the Hubble sits, I’m faced with blatant struggle/this day-to-day dance with hate in hopes love’ll/help me turn over the ignition/left hand at ten, and the other grappling the suspension/sad day in hell when I master this addiction/to hold on close, falling faster in this condition/it’s a cruel, cruel passion/that let’s me pry my parachutes mechanism in this chasm/right before my lesson lastens/as if I woke from this dream with no recollection it happened/who could say what paradise is/when the only next is a pair of lifeless eyes?/similar to the scare when night hits/and the moon and stars are as bright as light implies/lightyears away today, as distant as the God that I fear might sway/the unknown taking hold of my so-called soul/so, so deaf to the sounds of a heartbeat’s pulse/when I only imagine what’s make-believe/like the future and past outside its vagueries, and wonder why/I’m always begging please, and not to die/still blessed to breathing when I dot this i/what’s left only gives reason not to try/adhd’s and ocd’s distraction lies in a begging man’s passion for prize/wondering if Heaven’s got its asking price…

Chorus:
We won’t last forever, but we all gon’ try anyway
Cause no matter the weather, we always wait for rain
To wash away what we better let go down the drain
I wonder why we never did paradise everyday…

Verse 2:
The only Heaven that I know is better role/step inside these Adidas and find a severed soul/worn down by the woos of a lesser foe/wool covered several times before I’d get the memo/wake up from the nightmarish life where this/idea of evil could only be seen by who fights fairest/demons in every scene, and I’d perish/before I find the true terrorism is my wherewithal/open my eyes, and find the careless fall/mistaking my kindness for non-confrontational/watch friends victimized by oppression’s all/and realize my calling’s to love more intentional/that’s why I gladly seek the Passion’s physique/and withstand the pain that happily lashes at me/risen from ashes that flagrantly speak/out of hatred for the way we were meant to be free/still, the days never cease/with or without the evils that men do dangerously/Please, take them from me/cause nevermind what we do, I hate what I see/wanna be an agent of Peace/so in the past, I’ve laid at His feet/and now it’s time to receive the paradise I see, and everyday patiently be Me…

Bridge:
When I was alone in the face of death, and I was saving every breath for something worth me/eternity was the place I slept, all along my feet just crept naturally/and I never wanted to die, cause nothing ever felt right inside nor gave me no peace/until I saw the look in your eye, I never knew that Paradise was You and Me…
