  • Too late for the other side
    Caught in a chase
    Twenty five to life
    Too late for the other side
    Caught in a chase
    Twenty five to life
    Yeah
    Too late
    I cant keep chasing 'em
    I'm taking my life back
    Caught in a change
    Twenty five to life

    I don't think she understands the sacrifices that I've made
    Maybe if this bitch had acted right I would've stayed
    But I've already wasted over half of my life I would've laid
    Down and died for you I no longer cried for you
    No more pain bitch you
    Took me for granted took my heart and ran it straight into the planet
    Into the dirt I can no longer stand it
    Now my respect I demand it
    I'm a take control of this relationship
    Command it, and I'm a be the boss of you now goddammit
    And what I mean is that I will no longer let you control me
    So you better hear me out this much you owe me
    I gave up my life for you, totally devoted to you while I've stayed
    Faithful all the way this is how I fucking get repaid
    Look at how I dress fucking baggy sweats, go to work a mess
    Always in a rush to get back to you I ain't heard you yet
    Not even once say you appreciate me I deserve respect
    I've done my best to give you nothing less than perfectness
    And I know that if I end this I'll no longer have nothing left
    But you keep treating me like a staircase its time to fucking step
    And I wont be coming back so don't hold your fucking breath
    You know what you've done no need to go in depth
    I told you, you'd be sorry if I fucking left
    I'd laugh while you wept
    Hows it feel now, yeah, funny ain't it, you neglected me
    Did me a favor although my spirit free you've said
    But a special place for you in my heart I have kept
    Its unfortunate but its

    Too late for the other side
    Caught in a chase
    Twenty five to life
    Too late for the other side
    Caught in a chase
    Twenty five to life

    I feel like when I bend over backwards for you all you do is laugh
    Cause that ain't good enough you expect me to fold myself in half
    Til I snap
    Don't think I'm loyal
    All I do is rap
    I can not moonlight on the side
    I have no life outside of that
    Don't I give you enough of my time
    You don't think so do you
    Jealous when I spend time with the girls
    Why I'm married to you still man I don't know
    But tonight I'm serving you with papers
    I'm divorcing you
    Go marry someone else and make 'em famous
    And take away there freedom like you did to me
    Treat 'em like you don't need them and they ain't worthy of you
    Feed 'em the same shit you made me eat
    I'm moving on forget you oh,
    Now I'm special? Oh, I didn't feel special when I was with you
    All I ever felt was this
    Helplessness
    Imprisoned by a selfish bitch
    Chew me up and spit me out
    I fell for this so many times
    Its ridiculous
    And still I stick with this
    I'm sick of this but in my sickness and addiction
    Your as addictive as they get
    Evil as they come vindictive as they make 'em
    My friends keep asking why I cant just walk away
    I'm addicted
    To the pain, the stress, the drama
    I'm drown in so I guess I'm a mess
    Cursed and blessed
    But this time I'm a
    Ain't changing my mind
    I'm climbing out this abyss
    You screaming as I walk out that I'll be missed
    But when you spoke to people who meant the most to you
    You left me off your list

    Fuck you hip-hop
    I'm leaving you, my life sentence is served bitch
    And its just

    Too late for the other side
    Caught in a chase
    Twenty five to life
    Too late for the other side
    Caught in a chase
    Twenty five to life

    Too late
    Caught in a change
