"Cemetery of Dreams"

[Verse 1]

This a letter for my brothers
Out there working overtime
Asking if they're stressing
Man, they'll tell you "All the time"
No money in your wallet
Then it's always in your mind
Cause even when you get paid
You're still broke all the time
Like what's the point of all these hours
When you're having trouble saving it
Money that you made
Goes back to the man who paid you it
What a painting called "American Dreams"
This the land of democracy
By American kings
But you don't see the crowns
But you do see the castles
Even Slavery changes because you don't see the shackles
And here I am
Talking like I know and been through it all
But it's like standing on a mountain
Cause I'm seeing it all
Cause the lady bussing tables
Has been here for 20 years
She's like 75
And she's like one of my fears
And it's hard to just forget it
I get it, it's for a debt
But I'm looking at your smile
And I'm wondering when you met it
Breaks my heart cause I.....
Know I'm saying goodbye
When you give up on your dreams
Twenty Years go by
Funny how a living kills lives
But yet we still try
To get it for someone else
Man can't you see it doesn't feel right
Am I tying an apron
Or am I tying a noose
Am I living a lie
Or am I finding the truth
Our life is full of obstacles
Possible made impossible
Shackles on your feet to make our lives a little comfortable

[Hook]

Don't let your dreams die
Don't let your dreams die
Don't let Them kill them
Don't let Them kill them
Don't let your dreams die
Don't let your dreams die
The world will kill them
The world will kill them
The world will kill them
Don't you let it go
I know things are looking numb right now
I know things are looking numb right now
And every morning is getting hard for you to get up
And the pain on your neck won't seem to let up
And things just won't just get better
I promise it won't
If you let your dreams die
Don't you let your dreams die
But it's just the world, that's just how it goes
Don't let Them kill them
Don't let Them kill them
Don't you let it go

[Verse 2]

Drowning in fears
I've been...fighting for breathe
I've got a heart full of diamonds
Come and open the chest
Take you back to a time
When I was thought of as less
Writing lines to free my mind
But they were hardly impressed
See I swallowed what they told me
But I couldn't digest
Smiles on my face
While I was awfully depressed
I guess it got to me
Even though I know it ain't true
But the "Friends" that I had
Were saying the same things too
I think about it now
I feel a pit in my stomach
I drop a song nowadays
They turn around like "I love it"
Holding grudges at me
But it's who I became
There's fuel for the fire
And this my core for the flame
Now I shake there hands like "we good"
But we "ayee"
They hit me up
Like "Come Through"
Like "Thank you"
But I "K'
Put your heart on the table
They end up pulling the trigger
It's like nobody's with you
Until they see you get bigger
Only snakes, skunks and flies
Saying they down for you
Ironic when you were a waiter
You see no one waiting for you
That's just how it is
If your content with 40 hours
Please don't tell me how to live
I'm dropping heat no Lebron
But don't you get it
We on
Yeah, Everybody dreams
But they're living it wrong
I'm gone
Life behind the scenes
Let me tell you what I've seen
The day you love a check is when you're killing your dreams

[Hook]

Don't let your dreams die
Don't let your dreams die
Don't let Them kill them
Don't let Them kill them
Don't let your dreams die
Don't let your dreams die
The world will kill them
The world will kill them
The world will kill them
Don't you let it go
