Soundtrack 2 My Life

Album: Man On The Moon: The End Of Day (2009)
  • I got ninety nine problems and they all b****es
    Wish I was Jigga man, carefree living
    But I'm not Shawn or Martin Louie
    I'm the Cleveland n**** rollin' with them Brooklyn boys
    You know how I be when you start livin' large
    I control my own life, Charles was never in charge
    No sitcom could teach Scott about the dram'
    Or even explain the troubles that haunted my mom
    On Christmas time, my mom Christmas grind
    Got me most of what I wanted, how'd you do it mom, huh?
    She copped the toys I would play with in my room by myself, why he by himself?
    He got two older brothers, one hood, one good
    An independent older sister got me fly when she could
    But they all didn't see,
    The little bit of sadness in me, Scotty

    I've got some issues that nobody can see
    And all of these emotions are pouring out of me
    I bring them to the light for you
    It's only right
    This is the soundtrack to my life (yeah, yeah)
    The soundtrack to my life

    I'm super paranoid, like a sixth sense
    Since my father died, I ain't been writing since
    And I tried to piece the puzzle of the universe
    Split an eighth of 'shrooms just so I could see the universe
    I tried to think about myself as a sacrifice
    Just to show the kids they ain't the only ones who up at night
    The moon will illuminate my room and soon I'm consumed by my doom
    Once upon a time nobody gave a f***
    It's all said and done and my c***'s been sucked
    So now I'm in the cut, alcohol in the wound
    My heart's an open sore that I hope heals soon
    I live in a cocoon opposite of Cancun
    Where it is never sunny, the dark side of the moon
    So it's more than right, I try to shed some light on a man
    Not many people of this planet understand, fam'

    I've got some issues that nobody can see
    And all of these emotions are pouring out of me
    I bring them to the light for you
    It's only right
    This is the soundtrack to my life
    The soundtrack to my life

    I was close to go and trying some coke
    And a happy ending would be slitting my throat
    Ignorance the cope man
    Ignorance is bliss
    Ignorance is love, and I need that s***
    If I never did shows, then I'd probably be a myth
    If I cared about the blogs, then I'd probably be a jack-a**
    Don't give a s*** what people talkin' 'bout fam
    Haters shake my hand but I keep the sanitizer on deck
    Hope I really get to see thirty
    Wanna settle down, stop being so flirty
    Most of the clean faces be the most dirty
    I just need a thoroughbred, cook when I'm hungry
    A** all chunky, brain is insanity
    Only things that calm me down, p**** and some Cali tree
    And I get both, never truly satisfied
    I am happy, that's just the saddest lie

    I've got some issues that nobody can see
    And all of these emotions are pouring out of me
    I bring them to the light for you
    It's only right
    This is the soundtrack to my life,
    The soundtrack to my life
    To my life
    To my life
    To my life
    To my life
    Yeah uh huh yeah (to my life)
    Yeah uh huh yeah (to my life)
    Yeah uh huh yeah (to my life)
    Yeah uh huh yeah
    Yeah uh huh yeah
    Yeah uh huh yeah
    Yeah yeah Writer/s: EMILE HAYNIE, SCOTT MESCUDI
