I'm tryin' to make it through these hard times (Hard, times)
I'm tryin' to make it through these hard times (Hard, times)
I'm tryin' to make it through these hard times (Hard, times)
I'm tryin' to make it through these hard times (Hard, times)

Like to hear it? Hear it go, I'm rehearsing, gotta sing my song
'Cause life is like a big fight
My family's been houndin' me, friends they done turned against me
And they say I've changed, but like twins I'm just the same
This industry ****ed up
Keep real *****z around me, stay "Spaced Age for Eva"
But if you looked down from heaven, you'd still be proud of me
I didn't shed no tears when you left me
Trials and tribulations, ruined my concentration

I'm tryin' to make it through these hard times
I'm tryin' to make it through these hard times
I'm tryin' to make it through these hard times
Hard times (hard), hard times (Hard)
As this Valium slowly starts to kick in
This whole world around me, diseased, and crumblin'
Everybody want to blame music for they bad kids
My own hard times rolled in like the fog
My momma, in 1967, pickin' cotton
My old man was a player, ain't no hidin' that
I never saw him, never needed to see that muh'****er
I tattoed it on my arm so I can't forget it

I'm tryin' to make it through these hard times
I'm tryin' to make it through these hard times
I'm tryin' to make it through these hard times
Hard times (hard), hard times (Hard)
A drum machine, the old fo'-track, and a pack of new tapes
We made beats, and hung with old heads, and stayed out late at night
My momma stayed, home full time so she could raise me
Sometimes I listened, sometimes I thought I knew it all
I graduated out of nothin', not out of school, it was like
I might as well, be focusin' on me tryin' to get paid
Our team played, and had physical sex with minimum wage
It ****ed me long as I stayed
It can't get no harder

I'm tryin' to make it through these hard times
I'm tryin' to make it through these hard times
I'm tryin' to make it through these hard times
Hard times (hard), hard times (Hard)
I'm tryin' to make it through these hard times (Hard, times)
I'm tryin' to make it through these hard times (Hard, times)
I'm tryin' to make it through these hard times (Hard, times)
I'm tryin' to make it through these hard times (Hard, times)
