Song Meaning
Verse 1
Into this life we're thrown
Just as if outta nowhere, and from that instant
Begin to be program', to decode eve-
Rything we see in a particular way
Now some have the nerve to venture off into the unknown
Some don't, they're content to watch from the front row
Either way it's still a game that can be cut-throat
You don't wanna be on the wrong end of all the gun smoke
But your destiny waits
So there's really no need for precaution, of course
We are cautious, it's all we know
Just one false move and it's all she wrote, that's what they tell us
So we all take aim to stake claim
And if you get there just pray you maintain
Long enough, not to suffer and
No longer have to sing a song for your supper
Let's pray
Verse 2
How long we gonna keep on sufferin'
And fallin' on our knees for nothin'?
I'm starting to believe in somethin'
It's kinda hard to hear it but it's callin' out
Verse 3
Because I look inside, find this insight
Guessin' in this life, people would think I
Must know really what mine's for
But the truth I'm not quite sure
All I'm doin' is tryna follow my heart
Even though that my head's sayin', 'what if I can't?'
What if my path is already planned out
I already see how the story will pan out
It's not gonna be, well shit still I'm not gonna stop
When a job is the only other option I got
I'm not sayin' that it's wrong 'cause it's not
But if you're workin' and it doesn't make you happy then what
Is the point? I mean really?
Either you can take a shot or try to merely make do
When you see that that's the only other move
Then there really isn't anything to lose, choose
Verse 4
How long we gonna keep on sufferin'
And fallin' on our knees for nothin'?
I'm starting to believe in somethin'
It's kinda hard to hear it but it's callin' out
Verse 5
Hey that's the way everything goes
Some get what they want, the rest never get close
That's why they say if you ever get chosen
You made it 'cause anything goes
That's why we find ourself in a time where
People deny what's really inside them, frightened
Mighta feared that the outcome is doubtful
Not knowin' in itself that's the downfall, it's weird right
See we think we'll never make an impact
Since a young age we've been trained to think that
That's the only reason we're beaten
They know they can feed us this shit and we'll believe it, either
You can struggle through life or take your story
And then turn it into something you like it's all up in your mind
And in mine man, I'm leavin' on a plane
So if you're comin' there too well then I'll see you on the way
Let's go
Verse 6
How long we gonna keep on sufferin'
And fallin' on our knees for nothin'?
I'm starting to believe in somethin'
It's kinda hard to hear it but it's callin' out
Verse 7
How long we gonna keep on sufferin'
And fallin' on our knees for nothin'?
I'm starting to believe in somethin'
It's kinda hard to hear it but it's callin' out
Verse 8
It's callin' out
How long?
It's callin' out
