Lyrics:

Is this death or dyin’
Are we dead or dyin’
Are we fallin or flyin’
Hold on to your life, I can hear you cryin’

As death creeps closer your patience is tested/
The toaster of life ejected, the bread and butter we spread it/
A roller coaster of emotions swirlin’ in an ocean the potion/
Is at the bottom and we sinkin hopin’ to reach the bed and/
Crawlin’ to the edge and tryina muffle our screams/
Dreams about dyin’ but life is never what it seems/
Tangled in a blanket tearin’ at the seams/
A dope feign who OD’ed on morphine but we a team/
Dont matter how you got here or that your eighteen/
Low self-esteem, a victim of your environment know what i mean/
Your parents waited while you were intubated/
Debated bout the life they gave, whether it would be rated/
Graded C based on the decision they made and/
You fadin’/
im doin’ whatever I can to keep you breathin’/
Believin’ in the forces at hand keepin’ you from leavin’/
as you take your last breath i’m wonderin when you really died/
was it in the cold outside, or cause of the drugs inside/
or when the dealer handed you that needle one night/
maybe it was the infection you were just too feeble to fight/
dealin’ with the world, suffocatin’, your airways gettin’ tight/
a lack of education in a world preoccupied with gettin’ your race right/
disregardin’ that your family made it here from a war torn nation/
started at the bottom, a little complacent about their placement/
but eager to make the most out of their situation/
little did they know that they’d be racin’ /
life would get harder than tiein’ shoelaces/
Feelin’ your radial pulse wonderin’ if you hated us/
Lettin’ you down when you most needed us/
Trusted us with your care and believed in us/
I stop, turn around to your parents and say he’s leavin us/
