GROWN UP

by Sapient

Chorus

If Mama said there would be days like this

I wouldn't have grown up

X2

 

My ear's ringing, my mind's dull

My greatest gift is my instinct for survival

X2

 

Listeners think I'm out here livin' the dream

But every day is like being kicked in the teeth

I'd rather live in my dreams but it's too late I'm grown up

I got a wife and seed so I'ma provide sho nuff

Sometimes I feel like I chose the wrong profession

A 9 to 5 woulda been easier, that's not a lesson

I'm not a blessin', I'm on a precipice

Bringin' on impending war

Warding off depression and condescending the thoughts

Of convalescence, I'm torn

Between good and evil, no I don't love wicked things

But I'm love stricken by the blood trickling, ooh

The taste of iron gets me inspired and charged up

My heart sunk down, now covered in art gunk

That's my savior and maker, but now it's all twisted

I can't enjoy music 'cause all I hear is processes

 

My ear's ringing, my mind's dull

My greatest gift is my instinct for survival

X2

 

Survival, survival's what life's all about

Now that I'm grown up, things are smaller now

But that don't mean I can forget all my troubles

Just 'cause I'm told that there's light at the end of the tunnel, no

 

Chorus

If Mama said there would be days like this

I wouldn't have grown up
