Digging Deep

from The Iceberg by Oddisee



Verse One
The short timing, I've been on the life thing/ I've lived like kings/
& the men who set aside all the nice things/ Searching for what life means/
& all I found was dreams until the night came/ Rights made wrong from a point of view/
Morality is relevant to what you're going through/
On a high I'm a judge, on the low I'm like your honor/ If you only knew the karma
You would light plea/
I feel sorry for the people that are probably hated/
When you take the time to understand the makings of a man/ You comprehend/
That he's the sum of circumstance/
& that evil ain't incarnate & if cornered we can all created/
I know it's easy when you’re angry just to shallow grave it/ But dig deeper for the reasons & we're all related/
To kill a cousin ain't as easy as stranger/
But the danger’s not the bullet but the anger/
So let’s get into/ deeper/
Verse Two
Nothing happens overnight/
Stop thinking you can make it if you copy what I'm doing right/ My mistakes ain't in the credits but that's what should get it/ Failure fueled the drive like 87 unleaded/
Never gassed up/
I'ma stay the same/
You could give me fame/
Or could take away my last buck/
Switching lanes ain't in the formula forget it/
One me & that’s the person i'ma be until I'm dead'ed/
I ain't hear to tell you everything will be fine/
Cause thinking critically is really on a decline/
Please read between the lines/
For they cross us & we hang like free time/
I'm on the incline/
Steady growing like a garden, try to tend mine/ & you go folding in the foliage of a forest/ Filled with fortune/
In the form of something for us/
That's a grape vine/
So let’s get into/ deeper/
