Only to learn

Postby rhymarhyma » Sun Jun 29, 2014 12:17 am

What if everything I thought I knew
just wasn't what it seems
and all my faith and my beliefs
were nothing more than dreams

What if Jesus didn't save me
I just did it on my own
and everything I ever did
I did it all alone

Was I the one career-criminal
who gave up doing crimes
and instead of doing dirty
I just started writing rhymes

The one alcoholic
who smashed the bottle on the floor
The lone cocaine addict
who didn't want it anymore

Would it even matter
if my life turned back around
I could do anything I want in this world
if I just end up in the ground

It wouldn't matter what I took
It wouldn't matter who I hurt
If I have no soul I'll be in a hole
covered up with dirt

That's a pair of dice
that I'm not ready to roll
I've done some gambling in my day
but I won't gamble on my soul

I go with what I know
and I do what I do
I fly straight by being me
I stay straight by being true

True to the one
who's been waiting for me
True to the only one
who truly sets me free

The one who keeps me living straight
so I won't go back to doing wrong
only to learn as I burn...
that I was right all along
