[Chorus]
Ooh
I've been travelin'
On this road to long
Just trying to find
My way back home
The old me
Is dead and gone
Dead and gone
Ooh
I've been travelin'
On this road to long
Just trying to find
My way back home
The old me
Is dead and gone
Dead and gone

Ever had one of dem days
You wish woulda stayd home
Run into a group of *****s
Getting they hate on
You walk by
They get wrong you reply
Then **** get blown
Way outta proportion
Way past discussion
Just you against them,
Pick one then rush em
Figure you'll get jumped
That next
They don't wanna stop
There now they bussin'
Now you gushin', ambulance
Rushin' you to the hospital
With a bad concussion
Plus ya hit four times
Plus it hit ya
Spine paralyzed waist down
Now ya wheel chair bound
Never mind that now
You lucky to be alive,
Just think it all started you
Fussin' with three guys
Now ya pride in the way
But ya pride is the way you
Could **** around
Get shot die any day
*****s die
Every day all over
Bull **** dope money dice
Game ordinary hood ****
Could this be
Cause of hip hop music
Or did the ones
With the good sense
Not use it
Usually *****s
Don't know what to do
When their back
Against the wall
So they just start shootin'
For red or for blue
Or for blo' I guess,
From Bankhead
Or from your projects
No more stress,
Now I'm straight,
Now I get it now I take
Time to think,
Before I make mistakes
Just for my family's sake
That part of me left yesterday
The heart of me is strong today
No regrets I'm blessed to say
The old me dead and gone away.

[Chorus]

I ain't never been scared,
I lived through tragedy
Situation coulda been dead
Lookin' back at it
Most of that ****
Didn't even have to happen
But you don't think about it
When you out there trappin'
In apartments hangin'
Smokin' and rappin'
*****s start **** didn't
Next thing ya know we cappin'
Get locked up
Then didn't even get mad
Now think about damn
What a life I had
Most of that ****
Look back just laugh
Some ****
Still look back just sad
Maybe my homeboy
Till be around
Had I not
Hit the *****
In the mouth that time
I won that fight, I lost that war
I can still see my *****
Walkin' out that door
Who'da thought I'd never see
Philant no more
Got enough dead homies
I don't want no more
Cost a ***** his job,
Cost me more
Ida took that ***-whoopin'
Now for sure
Now think before I risk my life
Take them chances to get my stripe
A ***** put his hands on me alright
Otherwise stand there
Talk **** all night
Cause I hit you, you sue me,
I shoot you, get locked up, who me?
No more stress, now I'm straight,
Now I get it now I take
Time to think
Before I make mistakes
Just for my family's sake
That part of me left yesterday
The heart of me is strong today
No regrets I'm blessed to say
The old me dead and gone away.

[Chorus]

I turn my head to the east
I don't see nobody by my side
I turn my head to the west
Still nobody in sight
So I turn my head to the north,
Swallow that pill
That they call pride
The old me is dead and gone,
But the new me will be alright
I turn my head to the east
I don't see nobody by my side
I turn my head to the west
Still nobody in sight
So I turn my head to the north,
Swallow that pill
That they call pride
The old me is dead and gone,
But the new me will be alright

[Chorus]
