  • (Yea, yea, yea)

    I hope you're proud of me
    Dude I grew to be
    Ingenuity influenced by your eulogy
    Going through memories
    Like they're were movies scenes
    I know I've been the shit
    All these people fooling me
    I'll admit I guess I'm full of myself too
    There's just a bunch of shit
    I wish i could tell you
    This life move's fast, I never knew that
    Yours wouldn't have lasted
    The dirt hitting your casket, like raindrops
    I swear I'll let you know when the pain stops
    For now I need to run to to any place the train stops
    And everybody wanna talk to me about some business shit
    Never really listening, couldn't get real interested
    My days get darker, so the haze get sparked up
    All this hate, sound the same when my name get brought up
    You had a girl, I kinda wish you knocked her up
    So I could meet your son and talk you up (Talk you up)

    I remember when we were just kids
    We knew nothing at all
    We'd talk about the life we lived
    West Virginia, lost somewhere out in
    West Virginia

    It's a dark science, when you're friends start dying
    Like how could he go, he was part lion
    Life goes on, tears all dryed in
    Couple years are gon' by, bye then
    Can you please tell me help me find my friend
    I'll give you anything you need multiplied by ten
    I heard he moved to a place where the time don't end
    You don't need money, all you got is time to spend
    Life is short, don't ever question the lengths
    It's cool to cry, don't ever question your strength
    I recommend no limits, intricate thought, go 'head just give it a shot
    You'll remember shit you've forgot

    'Cause way back then I didn't know shit
    And I don't know shit now
    And when the whole world is looking hopeless
    I'mma still hold shit down

    I remember when we were just kids
    We knew nothing at all
    We'd talk about the life we lived
    West Virginia, lost somewhere out in
