Chainlink

Verse 1
I remember back to when I was younger
I remember back to a time when I was humble
Yeah before the world came along and tried to make me fumble
And told me that I couldn't make the cut without the muscle

I've been huffin and puffin
Tryin to blow the doors down to this game
But the walls are made of marble
So I plan to go under
I'll take a shovel and dig a tunnel up under the
Brick and mortar and come up through the dirt

Consider me the coyote' who is gonna catch this road runner
I'm just a lone wolf in this whole jungle
But I gotta overcome the struggle
Its no wonder why sometimes I could go under

I'm about to explode and turn this whole place into blown rubble
I can feel the floor rumble
I swung 100 times and I struck out
But lighting always strikes right before the
Thunder comes can someone please stop me

Chorus
Can someone stop me
Can someone block me
From thinkin this way
Cause it only brings pain
I'm one chainlink away
From breaking mainstream
So shake me awake from my daydream
From dreamin this way
Cause it only brings pain
That's just how my brain thinks

Verse 2
I remember back to when I was just a little guy
Lookin at the game from the outside
And tryin to figure out
How I'm ever gonna get from here to there
With no connections to any people who live on the inside

Maybe I could take the back door
And sneak in
In the middle of the night
With night vision and a ribbon mic

But what would I do that for
I'd rather be invited with a telegram
That stated they would love to have me
Be apart of history
Because I dropped the dopest record anybody
Heard inside the Christian hip hop industry

And get a buzz goin in the streets
Of Indy artists
With a twist on how the game is played
By speaking truth so intimately
Competing with the secular artists
By Bringing faith up through the ranks
And my Jesus with me

But that would never happen
I think I'm dreamin again
Can someone come and wake me up
To stop me from this self destruction

Chorus
Can someone stop me
Can someone block me
From thinkin this way
Cause it only brings pain
I'm one chainlink away
From breaking mainstream
So shake me awake from my daydream
From dreamin this way
Cause it only brings pain
That's just how my brain thinks

Verse 3
I remember back to when rappin was a hobby
A way for me to vent my thoughts
So I could feel the way my heart beats
Before It became more then just a way
For me to escape to never never land better wake up quick

Before I end up at a dead end
Just like the one that Alice found herself in
When she woke up in the wonderland
Its no wonder man why sometimes
I could go bananas trying to go after
Somethin I will never catch

Im ridin in the magic school bus
Thats navigating paths through my head
And all I see is silhouettes
Of empty promises and broken dreams
From a worldly empire
That wouldn't stand behind me

When I needed it to stand beside me
And help me I'm like a vagabond wandering the streets
That lie within myself
It's like I'm tryin to find a reason
Or an answer why I keep comfirmin
Somethin that denies me

Chorus
Can someone stop me
Can someone block me
From thinkin this way
Cause it only brings pain
I'm one chainlink away
From breaking mainstream
So shake me awake from my daydream
From dreamin this way
Cause it only brings pain
That's just how my brain thinks
