  • Verse I
    Sometimes I feel like I want to quit
    No one will notice if
    I forfeit my soul blow myself with a clip
    That’s my father did no gun, a noose and he hung
    My mom found him in the basement there as he swung
    At 5 years old what does that do to a kid
    Produced a maniac anthrax type of a kid
    I hear an ambulance, sirens I’m told to be silent
    I’m blind trying to find why my house is a riot
    Got to go can’t take it, Uncle Dave’s face is changing
    I race to find my father in the bottom of the basement
    My mothers covered in tears her face filling with fear
    Bang’s on the floor shout’s to God why am I are hear
    Scared to even ask, where my dad is at the time
    I guess for now it’s just a memory

    Mom where’s dad, where is he mom, where’s dad
    No

    Chorus
    This is my life my world
    My nightmare stuck here won’t turn
    Is there a light that can shine on me?
    Dear God I pray you hear hommie
    This is Chris your son praying feeling so lonely
    My life my world
    My nightmare stuck here won’t turn

    Verse II
    Can you relate to me? Probably not
    You still hate ye father, wanna to kill ye mom
    Got a dad attacking in the night at around 1:00
    Feet are like drums coming to you, ye can’t run
    Struggle with the thoughts, am I normal or not
    Abused all my life even when I called out to God
    What the flip, it’s a shame what happens in the dark
    Invisible to people all they seeing is the scars
    Hold on yo, use gonna make it
    Your spirit can’t be broken, soul not taken
    Praying in the power of the tongue for my friends
    New Testament Jesus Christ let him in
    Ye brains still confused what am I suppose to do
    When ye folks choke, tie vocal ropes around you
    Walls fall down surround you forget living I’ll never fitting
    God’s love is real no matter what you’ve ever been in

    Chorus
    This is my life my world
    My nightmare stuck here won’t turn
    Is there a light that can shine on me?
    Dear God I pray you hear hommie
    This is Chris your son praying feeling so lonely

    My life my world
    My nightmare stuck here won’t turn
    Is there a light that can shine bright won’t burn?
    Afterlife when I see Christ Soul journ

    Bridge
    This is my life lord can ye shine on me
    Can anybody hear me?
    Lord can you save me?

    Verse III
    Have you ever felt like you wanna die?
    End in the night, say good bye like a Lola bye
    And just close ye eyes
    Those lies almost killed me,
    Feeling filthy, no ability to move
    Commit suicide I won’t be guilty
    There’s no perfect life, it’s all media hype,
    The TV screen’s feeding ye right
    I’ve seen both sides of it by now, I would a bowed down
    A new sound the lost can be found
    You’re in some real dirt, ye life kind a sucks
    Ye might adjust, but you’d rather die in the dust
    I’ve had enough I look to him, and in God I trust
    Sometimes it gets rough but ye can’t give up Lyrics © OBO APRA/AMCOS
