Lyrics by Me
Beat by Noodles

(How many ways) can I start again//
(How many ways) can I wreck my car again//
(How many ways) can my luck run out//
(How many downs) til I'm down and out//

(How many days) can I be late//
(How many ways) can I decay//
(How many days) full of nothingness//
Until I- say g'day and succumb to this//

(I been) back stabbed by the sharpest knives//
I died alive, alone on the darkest night//
Well I survived, but somehow lost my light//
I lost my time to shine, and my mind to time//

(I'm lost in rhyme) my boss is an awful guy//
The cost of life is also far too high//
You're all too kind but all y'all was off the mark//
I crossed the line, dropped my guard, cross my heart//

I hope to die my wounds cauterize//
So all the loss and anguish is caught inside//
It's all combined and safely locked away//
The pain confined contained as I decay //

And I decay by day as I hibernate//
To hide away the rage inside of me//
I been through shit I wouldn't wish upon my enemies//
And I'm pretty certain the worst of it's still ahead of me//

It's all gone and it washed away//
It all dissolves and fades as I decay,//
(And I say) IDK when they ask me what I been doin' lately//
Cuz I decay that's exactly what I been doin' lately//

It's all gone and it washed away//
It all dissolves and fades as I decay,//
(And I say) IDK when they ask me what I been doin' lately//
Cuz I decay that's exactly what I been doin' lately//

A bar away from a country song//
I lost my car, my job, and I lost my dog :*( //
I've seen things too fucked_up to unsee //
The most fucked up thing is what I'm be_coming //

I'm a professional pain in my own ass//
I'm a thorn in my own side I'm a code that I can't crack //
A prescription I can't fill I'm an itch that I can't scratch //
A decision to sit still I'm a wish that I take back//

And I wish I could quit wishing that my will to survive//
Stacked up half as high as the bills stacking up on my mind//
...and that pile of bills it'll be the death of me//
And the only reason my family gon' remember me//

You might be thinking that this is the rock bottom//
But I'm in the rock pit, my top rock is yo rock bottom//
My rock bottoms got rock bottoms with rocks on 'em//
And my top rock is the rock bottom that y'all fall on//

It's all gone and it washed away//
It all dissolves and fades as I decay,//
(And I say) IDK when they ask me what I been doin' lately//
Cuz I decay that's exactly what I been doin' lately//

It's all gone and it washed away//
It all dissolves and fades as I decay,//
(And I say) IDK when they ask me what I been doin' lately//
Cuz I decay that's exactly what I been doin' lately//

I been thinking, I think I can //
I think I can, I think I (think again) //
I think I can, I think I_(thought I should) //
I think I can't I can't think (thought I could) //

I lost it all and watched it wash away //
It all dissolves and fades as I decay, //
(And I say) IDK when you ask me what I been doin' lately //
Cuz I decay that's exactly what I been doin' lately //

I feel like the second instance of the hook is not as good as the first or third, but that's just my opinion. The internal rhyme schemes are awesome and expertly placed, so that makes up for the negative opinion.

The beat could be better to be honest. I hear clipping, which is either due to the loud and low audio quality of the beat and the vocals. Actually it is the vocals clipping. Need assistance mastering? I wouldn't mind helping out. :)

"A bar away from a country song//
I lost my car, my job, and I lost my dog"

Did you lose your canine companion recently? Condolences in regards to that last bar in this couplet.

With the theme being IDK, is this another one of those tracks wherein you're trying to get back into the hang of rapping again? I feel like I've heard much better than this from you in the past.

All in all, not bad.

8/10 4/5

So basically what you're saying is give up. WELL TOO BAD LIBBY SHIMMZ, I'll probably be doing this til I'm 146 years old.

And yeah I had to put my 12 year-old beagle down recently. It sucked. The vet showed up and I was still sleeping so his knocking woke me up. . I dashed out of bed to meet him at the door, and in a matter of 2 minutes the deed was done.

So- due to my oversleeping, I never really got a chance to give my dog a proper goodbye. It was really sad for me because my dog was the only thing that stuck by my side through every shitty moment in the past 12 years. She deserved a better send-off than that
