Lyrics

Verse 1:

Everyday I'm tryin' get by
off course I wanna sit fly
cats be on the porch wit dat source tryin' get high
same wanna get rich and other are just dirt poor
hours in the streets but do not know who they work for
more than just a lifestyle
trin' get it right now
everyday they on the grind so no time to pipe down
some cant's put the pipe down
it's drugs in this industry
that's out to kill people ain't no love in this industry
you look the wrong way and you get mugged in this industry
blood upon the wall and they in love with this imagery
man this is stressin' me
can't let it get the best of me
can't be like the rest
and act out my emotions aggressively
naw this ain't my specialty
I am not a product of 
everyday I'm on the grind so i pray to the God above
I'm seein' all the signs
as I read between the lines
lookin' to the future with hopes of seein' what's mine

Hook:

All I wanna do is sit high
but it's a struggle everyday tryin' get by
yeah
tryin' get by
yeah
tryin' get by
yeah
tryin' get by
yeah
tryin' get by
And just know I'm doin' all that I can
I feel the world is in the palm of my hands
I'm just tryin' get by

Verse 2:

Block parties everybody wanna aim for me
doin' all I can but they are not who they claim to be
you are just the same to me
this is not a game to me
I'm tryin' make it to the top and that is all I came to see
posted up against the wall they claim that I'm against the grain
blood upon the street everyday and that a sense of shame
almost like we're meant for pain
I guess we gotta overcome
dealin' with deception but make sure it's never overdone
gotta get my mind right so on the interstate
tryin' provide for my fam scrappin' off the dinner plate
I know I got mouths to feed I just wanna make it out
Alive but the oppositions always tryin' take me out
I never live in fear though or even think to hesitate
I get it in my mind, just in time for it to resonate
And take this information that I get and start to pass it down
if you don't believe me all you gotta do is ask around
