I swear It felt like any other day I told my mother I was touched by the rain I fell asleep and dreamed of paradise One thousand golden rows I can’t explain what I visualized You won’t believe unless you see with your eyes The sight alone would leave you paralyzed One thousand golden rows I never wanted to say goodbye, be satisfied But my affliction was compromise, it's no surprise My mind was heavy and hypnotized One thousand golden rows I can’t explain what I visualized The sight alone would leave you paralyzed The nights were filled with dreams of paradise I’ve seen the highs and lows One thousand golden rows And when mercy fails I’ll reach for the sky Until my last breath I’m coming home

I’m gonna hold on And no I’m not ashamed to say it And maybe I’ll wash this drink down x2 Who would have known The only way to absolution Was three miles down Its enough x2 I’m gonna hold on And no I’m not ashamed to say it And maybe I’ll wash this drink down I need a saviour And no I’m not afraid to say And maybe I’ll wash these sins off

So gather round Let me tell you my fantasy Where there is no inhibition, no gravity And to the air We surrender so aimlessly And where the opiate sky stares back at me Isn’t it swell? I’m looking for that realist in me But I could never call your name And maybe thats the only way And I will not forget that day That I was just a step away Cus' I was overcame And I have never been the same I’ve been looking for that realist in me Cus’ it’s there

When did everyday get so long When did everyone get so cold Blurry lines between right and wrong Disconnect between young and old All the damned situations Taking a hold of the anticipation If you are waiting for truth to arrive You will be waiting the rest of your life If I could take away the burdens of my yesterday I’d make them fade away and take me to a better place But I am holding on to everything I done Just singing to the beat, “I’m wrong” If I could look at you and promise that I’d never leave If you could understand that I am not the one you seek Cause I am holding on to everything I done Just singing to the beat, “I’m wrong” When did everyday get so long When did everyone get so cold It’s "in to get the gold, in to get the gold” Well it’s been many days since I realized The truth revealed itself to my surprise It’s "in to get the gold, in to get the gold”
5.
When all the pageantry has faded And all the fucks I gave are weighted I feel it coming on I hear the battle song Of all the wretched and the hated They told me I could be the greatest I feel it coming on I hear 100 strong And when shit gets crazy, I’m gone And when the gates are broken Usher in the dawn of a brand new age The people will say, “the realist niggas don’t believe”

One day They're gonna tell you that its too late I’m at that place I don’t know what to do with all this weight I cannot take One day I’ll leave these burdens and I’ll fly away You know I can’t stay You know I mean every fucking word I say One day Where do we go I need absolution Liar You had your way with my desire You lit that fire And I will let it burn and never tire Liar You know you’re preaching to the choir Liar, each regret will serve to take me higher
