promise lyrics – da skorchaz

[hook]
there i am just like i was before,
i promised myself i wouldn’t do it no more [2x]

[verse 1]
mr. under achiever,
my pipedream maxed out like a visa,
they you strong or you just a bleeder,
if you don’t bundle up this cold world a eat ya,
bon apete, bonita appleb*m,
ya gotta put me on,
call out the line of duty,
just a juvy, sipping trouble in a gray hootie,
q scooped me, showed me the ropes, when the work was scarces,
we cut up soap, i’m hopless, my neighbor say i’m souless,
penny with a hole in it, streets grip me like a sterring wheel,
it’s no control, no tolerence, got a swallow sh*t,
glad i bag and bottle sh*t, oppposite of failure,
is sucsess, to much pride, i had to dress fresh,
i had to smoke good, i tryed to stop my old ways guess i’m no good,

[hook]
there i am just like i was before,
i promised myself i wouldn’t do it no more [2x]

[verse 2]
i find myself walking in circles again and again,
and promise it wouldn’t happen again and again,
you know it’s hard out here when the streets is greasy,
when ya friends is eneimes and family get creepy,
whats grease, grease is when yo life is wothless,
inside you dying, rockhard on the surface,
i then seen it all, and done it all, and ain’t got jacked,
making sales of marijunia, distribution of crack,
but the fact is, you take good, you take bad,
and there you have the same thing, prime example things change,
lifes a gamble pains pain,im just doing the same thing,
here i’am like i was before,and it ain’t strange,
hope my final destination,don’t lead me to my grave,
you lay on crackers,you bound to get crums,whats over is over,
whats done is done,

[hook]
there i am just like i was before,
i promised myself i wouldn’t do it no more [2x]

[verse 3]
you either livin life,nding on what life you lead,
best believe what goes around yeahtdoes come bak,
and if you ain’t did nothin,don’t expect nothin back,
a yo i work hard to get where i’m at,and if you hating,
you feeding the flame,you a flea in the game,
get drowned when i pee on the game,we just don’t see it the same man,
i’m on a whole different level,i represent every ghetto,
every n*gg* thets strugglin,up dog keep on hustlin,
they rather see fail than prevail,we use to get treated like retail,
now cop sprewells and we well came along way from the cotton field,
but still got ways to go,i made this flow,
for every last n*gg* trying to stack this doe,
cause when it come to dreams dog you can’t let go,

[hook]
there i am just like i was before,
i promised myself i wouldn’t do it no more [2x]
