[Chorus: SPM]
I was 3 when my old man left in the wind,
Push me in the ocean,
Turn around and said "Swim",
That's what I did even though I was scared,
I kept kickin' cuz a person only floats when he's dead

[Verse 1: SPM]
If I had one wish,
It wouldn't be wealth,
It would be that if we could just love ourselfs,
Cuz everyday it's like we kill a million dreams,
And it seem everybody on different teams,
I don't mean to get deep,
I'm just speaking the truth,
We in a 2 bed Trailer,
With a leak in the roof,
I ate potatoes everyway you could ever make 'em,
When your hungry you got to use your imagination,
My mom did her best,
She would hug and kiss me,
Even though we had more fuckin' mice than Disney,
I still had some Polo's and plenty of draws,
While she was livin' life with the same 2 bras,
The lighting strikes like Garth safe underrows,
Life is cold,
Like an Eskimo in summer clothes,
I suffered softly,
But never let nothing stop me,
And I miss my little girl like somebody shot me

[Chorus: SPM]
They walk on me until I die
Take me to die so now they'll come around [Repeats in Background
I was 3 when my old man left in the wind,
Push me in the ocean,
Turn around and said "Swim",
That's what I did even though I was scared,
I kept kickin' cuz a person only floats when he's dead

[Verse 2: SPM]
I be prison made cross,
Fuck diamonds and jewel,
Still flyer than Jordan,
When he was runnin' with Bulls,
So many shots been missed,
So many cops was pissed,
So many songs I have written in the past on this,
Is a lot of imposters tryin' to tell you the same,
But how the fuck can I explain,
No one knows my pain,
From the cord on my nable,
I was a G from the cradle,
I don't snort cuz they say that bitch Caine killed Abel,
I'm not sure you understand it,
But I must express it,
Santa Clause is on Herion,
There ain't no presence,
And mom all this shit makes my eyes so watery,
Now I understand why you tried to win the Lottery,
We gon' make it,
I promise,
Don't let the memories haunt us,
I remeber we was at the bus stop in pajamas,
Tryin' to run from a home that brought so many tears,
Bad Luck like we must have broke a thousand mirrors

[Chorus: SPM]
They walk on me until I die
Take me to die so now they'll come around [Repeats in Background
I was 3 when my old man left in the wind,
Push me in the ocean,
Turn around and said "Swim",
That's what I did even though I was scared,
I kept kickin' cuz a person only floats when he's dead

[Chorus: SPM]
They walk on me until I die
Take me to die so now they'll come around [Repeats in Background
I was 3 when my old man left in the wind,
Push me in the ocean,
Turn around and said "Swim",
That's what I did even though I was scared,
I kept kickin' cuz a person only floats when he's dead

    The lightening strikes and like garth said thunder rolls,

    It makes a referance to garth brooks song thunder rolls.
