Flow


[verse]
I've got this pain circulating around a sensitive subject /
And it may get some people upset /
Recently somebody wrote me a letter /
Callin' me out like she was better /
Pretending to be a nun-yet /
How can she think that she's actually better /
Nobody's perfect and yes we all mess up /
Why would even go writin' the letter /
My wife was devasted, I couldn't keep my head up /
I was strugglin' ugh and couldn't respond /
The letter hit the shredder like Leo did with his palm /
I thought we were family, but I was wrong /
The divorce took its course and ripped away at the bond /
That we had when I was only a kid /
I tried to stay on the path, followin' the way you lived / 
You taught me to go love and taught me how to forgive /
But as the years go on maybe you forget /
You can not claim to love God, and do the opposite /
You need to shut that off, like when a faucet drips /
That reminds me of American politics /
When you put it in a essay (NASA) and sent it out like a rocket ship /
I'm done with that bull crap, and all the pettiness /
Some words cut deeper than when a machete hits /
With the sling shot pulled back, head shots are deadliest /
Especially when the words from family weigh the heaviest ugh/
This was hard to write about, harder to rhyme about, but time was runnin' out /
My mind was up in the clouds, I had to go figure it out, I couldn't get rid of the doubt /
Cuz when I go through pain, and don't sit down and write about it /
I feel strange, I feel lame, well /
Just gimme a minute to crop it out of my mind, and remove it all from the frame /

[hook]
Feelings locked inside, for so long, feels so wrong /
I've been holdin' on, for so long, feels so wrong /
I used to bottle things up /
Keep the pain deep inside, didn't know how to let it go /
Truth is, is now I know /
Gotta let it flow, gotta let it flow /

[verse]
I just had a guy, hit me up online /
and act like he knew all about my life, when I /
Think I met him at my show a few years ago /
Not even close yet he acted like we were bros /
Why do I waste my time /
Respondin' to these lies from people late at night I /
Need to learn to walk away and just let it go /
But sometimes I simply can't leave it alone, yeah /
Because this dude claimed that i've gone astray /
My music's all in vain ,he had a lot to say /
But there is only one problem /
He don't know me from a Dark Knight in Gotham /
Yet somehow the Lord told him to tell me /
I'm caught up in pride, the life I'm livin' isn't healthy, awkward /
Cuz I don't even know you /
I've got a small circle of friends and family I'm close to /
No clue, how that includes yourself /
Don't get so caught up in me that you lose yourself /
Let's not forget, that we all sin and need to repent /
And only then will we improve ourselves, see it's /
By Grace, that's why I'm irate /
My pupils dilate when other people are fakin' /
callin' out mistakes of others yet won't acknowledge they own /
Let him without sin cast the first stone /
It's okay, I'll wait - everybody's guilty look at the crime rate /
we've all slept around with sin even if it was only a one time thing /
Late night with a prom date like woah /
Just tryin' to be real, not takin' any L's /
Like Drake with Meek Mill, cuz we know that didn't end well /

I used to bottle things up
Keep the pain deep inside, didn't know how to let it go
Truth is, is now I know
Gotta let it flow, gotta let it flow

[bridge]
Only thing I know is to write it down and to let it flow
Runnin' off the page, give it to ya straight, gotta let it go
Only thing I know is to write it down and to let it flow
Runnin' off the page, give it to ya straight, gotta let it go
Only thing I know is to write it down, let it flow
