Here I sit crackpipe in my hand.
Wondering how I became this man
I grew up head filled with dreams,
Of being a movie star, or on a
I wanna go back and talk to that kid.
And tell him not to do the things that
To follow his heart no matter where

Live life like each day is his last,
Strive for a future and remember his
Don't put off tomorrow what you can

be kind. Develop your body, expand

I think I know what I have to do. I
am done with you god no more
praying to you.
My god now is this pipe in my hand.
Its taken my soul left this hollow
