  • (Remember when) when it was 1992
    Two little kids stealing records, skipping school
    We must have been like only ten
    Taking life for granted 'til we learned it had an end (remember when)
    Time is something they say you never appreciate till you age
    Until this day you never knew, I wanted to be just like you

    If I only knew
    Then what I know now
    Then what I know now
    If I only knew
    Then what I know now
    Then what I know now

    (Remember when) when it was 2002
    You started slinging coke and got the dopest pair of shoes (pair of shoes)
    But yo, this house just ain't a home
    Since our father hit the bottle and our mother hit the road
    Time is something they say you never understand until it slips away
    And looking back I think you knew, I wanted to be just like you

    If I only knew
    Then what I know now
    Then what I know now
    If I only knew
    Then what I know now
    Then what I know now

    And now I'm tired of the violence
    I'm so tired of the sirens
    And it's better me, better me than you (than you)

    Now I'm tired of the violence
    I'm so tired of the sirens
    And it's better me, better me than you

    Slipping and we're falling, slipping and we're falling
    Through our lives (through our lives)
    Slipping and we're falling
    Don't know where we're going with our lives (with our lives)

    If I only knew
    Then what I know now
    Then what I know now
    If I only knew
    Then what I know now
    Then what I know now

    Now I'm tired of the violence
    I'm so tired of the sirens
    And it's better me, better me than you (than you)

    Now I'm tired of the violence
    I'm so tired of the sirens
    And it's better me, better me than you

    (Remember when) slipping and we're falling, slipping and we're falling
    Through our lives (through our lives)
    Slipping and we're falling
    Don't know where we're going with our lives
    Slipping and we're falling, slipping and we're falling
    Through our live Writer/s: John Arnold Boecklin, Max Karon, Tommy Vext
