Overture of Past Pain

Mr. Parker are you sleeping in my class?
Wake up you silly nigga
Don't let all your dreams get past
In school you barley passed and
Staying single seemed to last
But you keep getting trapped by these boobies
Don't let your innocence get booby trapped

[VERSE 1: Vo-Kal]
Thats when I wake up
To the existence that I call reality
One meal a day ends barely meet
That's what I call my salary
And damn shawty thick
In that bang bros. gallery
My mind's racing there faster
The places getting more vast her
Past sins on my mind but yet I
Can't pass them up blinding
Lights in my rear view
Missing opportunities that's not new
Just got through to my confidant
Embarrassed to tell him new news
Just got a feature instead
He told me just to keep up my head
My minds racing there faster
The places getting more vast her
Perfect body still on my mind
Can I finally just get past her
Master my feelings and future endeavors
Both girls on my mind won't do nothing but failures
Thats why we wouldn't work out
I got a life, deadlines to meet
Final fantasy
Just strategy on my mind
That's just how it has to be
Stay focused, straight path
Stay firm in all of my beliefs
I know when your lying
But I seem to always just lie to me
I can't lie to me
Just don't lie to me
I can take it
But only lies lie that deep
The truth hurts
But ignorance is poison
And betrayal is the reason that you lied to me
But finally
I'm confident in myself now
Past those awkward moments
When I bring myself down
When I look in the mirror
And see the man that I've become
After all those years of self doubt
My potential out weighted
The possibilities
Of they're hate
Controlling my thoughts
And now I need
To free all of my thoughts
And all of my inner demons
That deemed my thoughts
Dirty and out of sync
Of society
Maybe some mental dieting
The deity that guided me
God, the one that's beside of me
Inspiration fighting for me
All my fans thats fighting for me
All my friends that's fighting for me
All my family fighting for me
But I'm the one I need to fight for
I chose a path
I hope I'm picking the right door
I chose production
I hope the beats on the right score
And all my free time
Is telling me I should write more
It's never too late for now
I still live it
That 30 rock episode
Reason I'm still in it
A jack of all trades
And a master of all
But I can't find growth
Until I capture my fall
New girl on my mind
But she been ignoring all of my calls
It went so well at first
But now she won't kiss me at all
Maybe if I call her once more
Or even show up at her door
She'll start acting normal again
And just fall into my arms
