Things, on my mind when I wake up/
Things, all my time try to take up/
if I could save up money like worry I'd be a rich man but the sorrow would plague much/ I have made up the fiction/
that I'm the center of a system/
causing the day's rust /
center stage in a monologue play of/
me & the audience all in my make up/
what a view & it's all the show/
assuming what I'm doing's what you already know/
I think I'm in the middle of a palm heavy globe/
everybody trying to steal what I already own/ but oh in this life we are all but alone/
but feeling that you are is a problem condoned/
so sunlight is a spotlight that we hold/
like it's one light & we cuff tight until it's gone/
one candle on the cake for the taking/
souls set sail on a race trying to take wind/ we are faves in the chips that we place in/
I better build self anybody else cave in/
so I'm holding on to pressure like it's all mine/
that ain't sweat it's just the way I keep the floors shined/
everybody queued up for the long grind/ thinking that we're next in a short line/

Thinks I'm going through (chorus)

I want a lot more things/
biggie tried to tell me what a lot more brings/ a head strong man will take a lot more strain/ seeing pleasure in the presence of slot more pain/
it's like I'm in the plot of a horror flick scene/ & i'ma run towards where I thought I heard screams/
cause things draw me like a self portrait/ blank paper trying to fill it with a lot more green/
cause things make life & life worth living/
is a life worth giving to a fight for dreams/ but when your schemes matter more than the next man/
the next mans matter more than the rest than/
we all forget we are not all things/
so i'ma take in the line/
all those behind me can chill/
but if I was the last, I'd probably be the first one to wine/
for real/

Things I'm going through (chorus)

We just want to matter more/
trying to be the matador/
in a pit of bull/
trying to gather our status in the masses/ looking at the glass saying that's pitiful/
I ain't seeing what you're seeing cause your problems ain't my problems how you solve them really I don't even care/
putting pressure on my shoulders that ain't really there/
but I know you see it when you stare/

Things I'm going through (chorus)
