lyrics

nights are cold, but the soul is colder
bet it all burn when the dro is rolled up
everybody got problems, yea, but so what?
deal with that shit on your own, don't show up
to my residence with that negative shit
which is tough to do when it's prevalent in
everything that you do, and you just can't do right
at times thinking that you just can't do life
resort to the sentences, bars, and the elements
because it keeps you grounded, kinda like the sediment

the good life doesn't exist, they made it up
to sell a few albums and make a couple bucks
the people who did that are probably rich as fuck
got a lot of dough but they'd probably give it up
for that good life, that good life
everybody wanna try that good life
yea that good life, that good life
no telling what you giving up for that good life

headed to the spot where the girls all get it in
smiles look heavenly, intentions are devilish
one night stands sound good in a rap song
until you bust a nut and find out that the strap's off
and this chick don't believe in abortion
wanna have a family, wanna pay mortgage
wanna marry a nigga, wanna divorce him
leave him assed out, leave with his fortune
suppose that's the price that you pay for your fantasy
eventually you find out that shit is a fallacy

the good life doesn't exist, they made it up
to sell a few albums and make a couple bucks
the people who did that are probably rich as fuck
got a lot of dough but they'd probably give it up
for that good life, that good life
everybody wanna try that good life
yea that good life, that good life
no telling what you giving up for that good life
(i'll tell you what i'm giving up for that good life)

chilling on the beach on a hot summer day
talking to my mom at least once a day
sleeping with these girls like every other day
working someplace where I'm not underpaid
not chilling at a keyboard with a rhyme
going to my bed at a reasonable time
not being tired, going out a lot but still
not being inspired, admired, or a liar
being more quiet, and through it all see
that a truly good life is the one beyond reach

the good life doesn't exist, they made it up
to sell a few albums and make a couple bucks
the people who did that are probably rich as fuck
got a lot of dough but they'd probably give it up
for that good life, that good life
everybody wanna try that good life
yea that good life, that good life
no telling what you giving up for that good life
