lyrics

Verse 1 (Donte)
I quit looking back to look forward toward a future// My friends ain’t got to be the enemy to shoot ya// My nuckas ain’t got to push packs to get racks// From hopeless to focused we making hit tracks// Used to rob women now they dress them up in linen// Swimming in exotic waters none of y’all been in// Carnally sinning from beginning to the ending// Forgive me Lord I’m down on one knee bending// The other one stuck in the game and keep spending// When my time come hope you in the mood for mending// ‘Cause my pain feel so real while they pretending// The world getting smaller, my family extended// Fatherless, childless, look like my only image is antique and vintage// My whole soul blemished// Looking back// looking forward to what I’m looking at// I write my life like a chapter in the Book of Rap//
Hook (Mellow Drum Addict)
Looking back, looking back, looking back now I can see// It wasn’t how it’s supposed to be// it wasn’t how it’s supposed to be// Looking back, looking back, looking back now I can see// It wasn’t how it’s supposed to be// Just look closely//
Verse 2 (Cas Metah)
My life is like a slide show// Moving forward I can see where ever I go// from where I been//Hind sight gives an eye full// I’d be a fool not to remove the blind fold but the pipes are ice cold// Need the pilot light ignited in my soul// So I can try to fight the rival in my dome// I know I should know all of them sly holds//Still I get convicted and end up in trials// Denials my best friend// Told him I don’t want to kick it no more, he just don’t ever get the message// Been to the school of hard knocks but didn’t ever get the lessons// It’s like I only went on test days// Damn man, I should’ve wrote them essays// I could’ve would’ve if I wasn’t always stressing// going under with my evanescence// second guessing the Heavens//
Hook (Mellow Drum Addict)
Looking back, looking back, looking back now I can see// It wasn’t how it’s supposed to be// it wasn’t how it’s supposed to be// Looking back, looking back, looking back now I can see// It wasn’t how it’s supposed to be// Just look closely//





Verse 3 (Thee Tom Hardy)
Look close, I’m glancing back at the past// with the perfect hind sight vision through the looking glass// Sleeping during classing thinking this is not for me// and this is not the path so I veered off it// Barely made it with my peers walking// across stage at the graduation// Wasn’t trying to go to school I was salivating// over the prospect of performing on different stages// I was so outrageous, and not the least bit patient// A go getter when I started// Started from the bottom of the totem then I climbed up microphone controlling// Took it to a level// and what I did next I won’t do again ever// Got content and settled// playing it too safe, not giving a hundred// And now the people that I did reach are all wondering “what happened?”// Not aggressive too passive I’ll restore order// No looking back I’m looking forward//
Hook (Mellow Drum Addict)
Looking back, looking back, looking back now I can see// It wasn’t how it’s supposed to be// it wasn’t how it’s supposed to be// Looking back, looking back, looking back now I can see// It wasn’t how it’s supposed to be// Just look closely//
