Can't Turn Back (ft. A'thyntik)

from Global Warning by Sun Rise Above



A song about regret, reflection and looking forward. A'thyntik was a younger due from the area who was down with what I was doing and wanted to get involved. Hopefully he's doing well.


Verse 1:

(Sun Rise Above)
I feel alone, even when surrounding by thousands
'Cause no one understands me, and no one ever has
Thinking I'll never last in this planet of the apes
Time is running out fast, so I'm planning an escape
There's only one way for the sun ray to shine
Get the clouds out my mind, counting time till the end of days
In many ways, people change like the seasons
My brain got me seeing these snakes disguised as human beings


If I could turn back the hands of time, and analyze this life
Slow motion with camera eyes
And then I, could get my mind right
And make those decisions, perfect vision with 20/20 hindsight

Verse 2:

Marvin sweets and candy, that won't be dropped
To coke D, out late, my fate who licked shots
Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday
Yeah I do them too
Can't even still on kids no more, everybody will sue
Getting caught with more bucks, like raping your dad's wallet
Or involved in misplaced scenarios
Oppression, can you call it?
In famous clothes, insane as goes
Complain about foes, spit game at hoes
Spit same at those, who can't understand my meaning
My theory towards rapping
Come close to me, battles the best
Young it's the chrome I'm clacking
Slow I'm laughing, off of cats really trying to hack it
Contorted, distorted, you heard it
Y'all fagots got wack ish


Verse 3:

(Sun Rise Above)
If I could turn the hands of time back before a nine to five
So everyone coming up to me wouldn't have eyes made of dollar signs
'Cause on my mind is loss from the cost
With sisters not looking for brains but brothers who floss
Got me lost on the path, without my shepherd
Even doubting my ethic, but I just can't accept it
So I left it (where), right where it was
'Cause that night I was buzzed, fighting the fuzz
Drunk off the rum, even striking my love
My seeds got needs, but my pockets empty constantly
'Cause I can't let no man ever be the boss of me
When for every ten I earn them make a thousand off of me
It's grand larceny, I just call it how I see it
