[Hook]
I have tried in vein
Never had success
So it seems my life is nothing but a mess
I have lost, my only friends
Now it seems I have to start again
MERRY GO ROUND

[Verse 1]
My lifes been goin around 'n' round since '95
Went from goin where about to die
Went from callin' my chick a chicken cause she look like she got poultry
Around her thighs
To callin' your piece a chicken cause she got no teeth and she got crow
Feet, around her eyes
How hard are y'all? I got a heart the size of Arkansas
Count to five, these birds gon' hit the ground and they ain't from out the
Sky
Went from havin' an outta-this-world-flow, to doin' the pity, or doin' the
Coon dance
To watchin' my good friend Eminem winnin' a moonman
I remember cause I was in New York with all of my boys to start shit
Lettin' 'em stay with me, long story short, they tore my corporate
Apartment
Went from bein a kid addicted to basketball
To bein an ignorent nigga addicted to alcohol
Round and round we go is how this movie would end
Self-proclaimed King of my city, not really just truely the King of losin'
A friend
Who would've thought this goof in the park whos true to his ark would lose
Or win just by givin' his thoughts 'n' views

[Hook]
I have tried in vein
Never had success
So it seems my life is nothing but a mess
I have lost, my only friends
Now it seems I have to start again
MERRY GO ROUND

[Verse 2]
You would hear that Ryan's skilled
Might even hear Ryan kills
You will never hear Ryan Stiles
Here to put the "I" in I'll
My mind is still
Like a merry-go-round spill
Like leavin' only guns to my kids when I'm killed
I got an iron will
Intellect as ion(?), I went from high on pills
To triumph, to hidin' from bills, to buyin buildin's
Then I went from writin' for Dre
To wonderin' if my head was on straight on the sidelines
Feelin' I forgot about listenin' to "Forgot About Dre"
From there I went to about a bottle a day
Tellin' who we know "Get outta my face!" okay I know what Kino said about
Dre
I look at Kino to this day like that was a stupid mistake
But if it wasn't for him doin that, what would I be doin today?
If it wasn't for Ca$his sayin' that he gonna beat my ass
Then me and Em prob'ly wouldn't be laughin bout us gettin past it
If it wasn't for me bein outcasted I woulda never been on the underground
Rappin wit SLAUGHTERHOUSE!

[Hook]
I have tried in vein
Never had success
So it seems my life is nothing but a mess
I have lost, my only friends
Now it seems I have to start again
MERRY GO ROUND
