Flatbush Zombies – ​when i’m gone Lyrics

​when i’m gone By Flatbush Zombies

I just want to die, I just want to cope
All I see is pain, I done lost hope
I just want to live, I just love the thrills
How I just lost my momma, I don’t got no father
I just want some justice, I just want some peace
Everyday niggas dying in the streets
Everyday niggas dying industry
All this fucking beef and I don’t even eat
Wrong colors and we sworn enemies
I just want to come together take the streets
Overdosing while my niggas die, shots fired why he gotta die
Sometimes it’s hard but nigga you alive
Sometimes it’s hard to see the truth inside
Life inside a box, throw away the key
Who are you to judge her, who could make her free
Tired of nigga beating up women, tired of women hating on men
Baby momma trying to control shit, play the victim seen the roles switch
Remember how to love your own shit
Remember how to love your homies
Remember people out here homeless
This is living at your own risk
Because ain’t nobody walkin’ perfect
All this money, was it worth it
All this ice am I the coldest
Sacrifice am I the chosen
Am I living for the moment
The past hurts but it’s golden
The future bright all this moonlight
Cause it’s suicide when you too righteous

It’s like they (It’s like they)
Won’t get you til you’re gone
Just hope when I’m dead
I live on through these songs (these songs)
It’s okay (it’s okay)
You’ve got the right to move on (to move on)
Just don’t forget (it’s okay)
What it’s like when I was (when I was still here with you)

This is bigger than some music
And all my niggas going through it
Life ain’t posed to be this way
Desensitized from real decay
Weighing on my inner conscious
Especially when out of context
Text me for a little convo
Fallen soldiers, come home
I just rally for the cause (aye aye)
Then I round up all my dawgs (aye aye)
Get the fuck up out of dodge (aye aye)
Life ain’t posed to be this hard (aye aye)
I don’t want to cry no more (aye aye)
Cause rehab ain’t about a choice (aye aye)
Wishing that we’d find the cure (aye aye)
This a pain we can’t ignore

(It’s like)

First off I want to say, RIP to Mac Millie
We gonna smoke these flowers in your honor
Drowning, riding around through the city
(It’s like)
Worlds suppose to be mine but these bitches like gimmie gimme gimme
But before I let it burn though, these are my confessions
(It’s like)
Love hard like my mother, too much pride like my father
Don’t think I’m strong enough to be a brother
Way too fucked up to be a lover
Damaged goods, couldn’t make it through the rubble
Under my hood is a sick mind, with some deep thoughts
I’m in trouble, problems piling up, emotions bottled up
I’m volatile, wish I was drama proof
But why waste wishes on something so comical, unbalanced chemical
Mo money mo problems, commas and decimals (damn)
I guess that’s just what the dollars do (It’s like)
Shall I fly without losing my flock
Will I die before making my mark
Heaven knows that I gave y’all my heart
Man I gave you my all, zero day from the start
Life’s a challenge, it will break you to parts
You are not gone, you entered the void
No energys lost, immortality you get through these songs
Since they ripped me from umbilical cord,
Can’t figure what leads to these cynical thoughts
Extending my arm like the man on the cross
You gave me a hug, stabbed through my back and punctured my heart

It’s like they (It’s like they)
Won’t get you til you’re gone
Just hope when I’m dead I live on through these songs (these songs)
It’s okay (it’s okay)
You’ve got the right to move on (to move on)
Just don’t forget (it’s okay)
What it’s like when I was (when I was still here with you)

Still here with you
Still here with you
I wish I was still here with you
I am still here with you
