-verse 1-
Sometimes times I sit back and stare at walls
and call up ambitions, wishing I wasn’t missing that shit at all
my dreams never fulfilled, heavily killed, no goals instilled
premonition of my downfall
this war called life, the strife has got me AWOL
Napoleon syndrome – my empire falls
I shoulder it all, the first man in royal rumbles
confidence crumbles, my mental pitfall
but I cant stand this shit, I’m banished and
I pray everynight but never get a hand in shit
where’s my god? I wonder if he’s brandishing’
like I have to… I wonder if he’s panicking’
and I ask you; where you been.. these past 20 years?
my only response my own echo to hear
alone in this pain, my blood veins are black
for across my back lies my own cross to bear

-hook-
Nowadays it’s like the sun don’t shine
Nowadays it’s like I lost my mind
Nowadays it’s like I already know
Come tomorrow, there’s nowhere to go
Nowadays it’s like the pain don’t end
Nowadays it’s like I can’t trust friends
Nowadays, my time slips away,
and I wish for ways of a long time ago

-verse 2-
and they wonder why we stay sedate; for god’s sake
like the more I make, the more they take
the more I try- the more the more i fail- impale my fate
it’s what’s at stake; I’m hungry with an empty plate
a drop heavy heart, eyes welled up, my mind state-
negate any light in my tunnel and frustrate to the fullest
never been one to bust bullets..
but times are rough and rough times push me to it
what the fuck do i fight for? no matter what…
I’m stuck in the same fuckin’ place with no luck
all these years and all these tears shed for what?
absolutely nothing… people steady frontin’
always told me to hope, that shit’s a joke
hope never helped me when my ass was broke
it cloaked my pain; but now its rains and I’m soaked
so I lose consciousness…. my only way to cope

-hook-
Nowadays it’s like the sun don’t shine
Nowadays it’s like I lost my mind
Nowadays it’s like I already know
Come tomorow, there’s nowhere to go
Nowadays it’s like the pain don’t end
Nowadays it’s like I can’t trust friends
Nowadays, my time slips away,
and I wish for ways of a long time ago

-verse 3-
Everyday life slips by with each breathe, 
another second from my chest, I can’t rest
I’ll never regain, wallow in pain and obsess
how long untill I lose the only thing I got left?
I stay stressed, about to buckle under pressure
the same people that weren’t there, now wanna lecture
on how I turned from a “coulda been” to “never will be”
how I let everyone down now, and it kills me
… still be thinking about that one road never taken
as I sit here- the foresaken
my heart pacing … but when i try elevating
another setback from the world is in the making
now It’s made me lash out, and bash out 
any muthafucka chuckin’ his stones from glass house
I keep a mean grill; and I … I mean- still..
I’ma go for mines; my mindstate’s fuckin’ ill

-hook-
Nowadays it’s like the sun don’t shine
Nowadays it’s like I lost my mind
Nowadays it’s like I already know
Come tomorow, there’s nowhere to go
Nowadays it’s like the pain don’t end
Nowadays it’s like I can’t trust friends
Nowadays, my time slips away,
and I wish for ways of a long time ago
