Playback

Updated on October 15, 2011

Hit that rewind button then pause, take a look at where you been

Take a good long look examine the cause, then hit that forward again


Back to right here and now, do you like what you see?

Or does it make you say wow, what’s really become of me?


That was the quick version, now lets do this thing right

Start a whole new excursion, as you reexamine your plight


Hit that rewind button one more gain, all the way to the beginning

No not that far only back to when, your decisions lead to this ending


But not the pause this time young villain, now you’re gonna hit play

Its time for all your crimes you dealed in, to be held up like script today


You had it all figured out huh, like master gangsta’s in them shows

But you could never wiggle out from, the truly dangerous sin blows


So you went down every freakin time, got back up and went right back down!

Like a damn clown as your tweakin mind all gacked up getting bent n smacked around!


Doin that same thing over n over again is that insanity? Nah homie you were just practicing right?

But did you get better did you ever win, avoid clamity? Yeah show me, cause I don’t see those facts when I review your life.


All I see is loss and failure but I don’t see a loser or a failure I hope you’re diggin my drift.

You can still be a boss I tell ya, cut the dope creaps and loose the paraphernalia, get in where ya fit in and shift


At the end of the tape knowin now the real reason all you’re problems go way back

At the beginning of change I’m hopin you caught the chill please n learn to never hit play back.
