BIG K.R.I.T. - The Vent

rate me

A mother lost her child

I tried to ease her pain

"It's only God's will"

She says she felt the same

Its funny how the sun will up and battle rain

As if the clouds couldnt stand to see me outside again

Wrote a rhyme that was kind with some vision to it

Bottom line it might expand your mind if you listen to it

Too much shine can dull the soul

If you feel how I feel, then I'll rap some more

How can the devil take my brother if he's close to me?

When he was everything I wasnt but I hoped to be

I get a little honest and I ask myself

If the time come, will you save me if I ask for help?

Sent my mind on a journey to the outer most

To document what it had seen and cc me the notes

And ask Kurt Cobain why, cause I need to know

He stopped when he had such a way long to go

I saw love in the eyes of a perfect stranger

She overlooked my caring heart in search of a gangster

Will we ever be together only time will tell

She call my phone and talked to me as her eyes would swell

I put my problems in a box beside my tightest rhymes

Under lock and key, buried deep off in my mind

And when it gets too full and I can't close the lid

I spaz on my family and my closest friends

Trade my materials for a peace of mind

I am so close to heaven, hell, I just need some time

Who cares about life and the highs and lows

Maybe I should write another song about pimps and hoes

Cars and clothes, idol gods, golden calves, Louis scarves

I do this for the love and its free of charge

I dont need jail to be behind bars

This is purely art

In my grandma's household this was surely taught

Dont be naïve, yeah, these times is hard

In the midst of all the glamour I hope you find God

I never wished to be the burden bearer

But souls need saving and its now or never

Shock value is all they wanna see

Its us against them and its just you and me

Trying to take heed what I say in my songs

Forgive me if I ever ever steered you wrong

Most people stop for signs but I driven through it

If it dont touch my soul then I cant listen to it

The radio dont play the shit I used to love

Or maybe I am just growing up

I never seen a star on a red rug

If I wanna see stars I just look above...

To the heavens

I know youve been down so long

So Ill be stronger for you

I know youve been down so long

Cause Ive been down too

Yes I understand

What you're going through

Yes I understand

Cause I'm going through it too

I pray that you find your way

And all things old become new

I pray that you find your way

For my sake cause I'm lost too

Yes I understand

What you are going through

Yes I understand

Cause I'm going through it too

I lost my friend this morning

Woke up screaming her name

She meant so much to me

I'm scared I wont be the same

Hope you understand

What I'm going through

Hope you understand

When I call out for you...

To vent
