Josh A – Gravestone Lyrics

Gravestone Lyrics – Josh A

I feel this pressure been buildin’ up
Yeah, I feel it in my bones
I feel the weight of every choice I’m makin’ when it’s set in stone
I wanna leave a mark, it’s showin’ that I’m comin’ from the art
This is everything I have and I’m still chasin’ down the spark
Yeah, that hunger back when I was I was fifteen
Music was my only way out and nobody did believe
But I knew a had to show ’em, leave ’em all in disbelieve
Up until this there’s no denyin’ everything that I’ve achieved
So I’m saying like
I am not somebody you complot against
Every move you make against me, I will make the opposite
I’ll be turning all of their opinions into compliments
Never had the confidence
But now I steppin’ up, I’m shinin’ a light into you incompetence
I am not one of these rappers that in five years will not matter
I will not shatter, I’m dictating every conversation
This ain’t an album, it’s just practicing dedication

Yeah, it’s finally workin’ out
Makin’ all these different sounds
Tearin’ down my heart on every page, it’s time I let it out
Used to be so scared to be too specific, but if I don’t give in
Nobody would ever listen
It’s my fate, so Imma take it to my grave

What you want written on your gravestone?
Were you great, were you fake, were you never known?
Did you leave a legacy or did you follow every trend?
Would you let some people hate you? Or do you try to make amends?
What you want written on your gravestone?
Were you great, were you fake, were you never known?
Did you leave a legacy or did you follow every trend?
Would you let some people hate you? Or do you try to make amends?

Mood swings, anxiety is up and down, makes it hard to ever do things
Cracks in my skull made me scared of miles not improving
Death on my shoulder and it effects the way I view things
If I die this better be the best of I’m producing
So I’m filling no books stuffed full of songs that made me cry
It’s full of songs about my life and full of songs, I tell no lies
Locked myself in the studio, swear that I been so exhausted
Sometimes I wanna stop this
But I couldn’t stop if I wanted
You know I’m just being honest
Every time I try to take a break I just end up back on it
I’m obsessed with droppin’ everything around me just to make it right
Give it all my time, yeah but I’m still never satisfied
Quality over quantity, yeah that’s why I barely drop
That’s the reason when I’m back again my numbers never flop
Always work on the scenes, you know my ethic never stop
If I’m not pouring out my heart, I’ll never drop another song
I’m giving this everything I have to give
My legacy ain’t no lacking this
Serenity for the sadder kids
Eternity is how I’m tracking this
A eulogy for all the scrutiny that I been under in and what they assume on me
Ain’t no more truancy, I’m on the shooting spree
Showin’ the world that I’ll be great, yeah

What you want written on your gravestone?
Were you great, were you fake, were you never known?
Did you leave a legacy or did you follow every trend?
Would you let some people hate you? Or do you try to make amends?
What you want written on your gravestone?
Were you great, were you fake, were you never known?
Did you leave a legacy or did you follow every trend?
Would you let some people hate you? Or do you try to make amends?
