lyrics

[Verse 1]
Why do we keep running races with no finish lines?
I don’t know but I won’t stop until I finish mine
They say it’s all about the journey, not the destination
Embrace every moment in every occasion
We dream to visualize with the mind’s eyes
But not everything we dream can materialize
For every smile there got to be a little scar
For every punchline there got to be some filler bars
Happiness doesn’t equate to money and gold
But we got to feed both the tummy and soul
Hustle hard in whatever to fill the rice bowl
But never let the hard cash leave you ice cold
Let us keep marching forth every step we take
Let us try to bridge the gap for every bond we break
Seek forgiveness for every sin and mistake
And be thankful to be alive in every breath we take

[Chorus]
It’s like the same story written with a different pen
The same eye view through a different lens
Same love from the hearts of different souls
That be walking many paths to similar goals
Write the same story with a different pen
Take the same photograph with a different lens
Same struggle that is filled with the joy and the pain
The same hustle that we feel through the sun and the rain

[Verse 2]
I spend time for these rhymes to appear
But these words are not mine, it is ours to share
‘Cause my thoughts could be yours and yours could be mine
We are all really connected when the mind is align
We design to refine and recline to the inner psyche
Search for the signs and define what the inner sight see
We fantasize our own definition of paradise
And strategize to see the prize with a pair of eyes
But if there is no pot of gold after many tries
Then is the blood, sweat and tears worth the sacrifice?
Well just ignore the success that you glamourize
And recognize the real truth behind a pack of lies
Because a revolution can never be televised
And the answer to life can never be summarized
Walk on a path to a destination that’s never fated
Feeling jaded to make it till everything faded
But never drown in the sorrowness if you missed the boat
Just learn to build a life raft just to stay afloat
We’ll never see the outcomes we’re never meant to see
So no regrets for the things that wasn’t meant to be
We wake up and may not live in our dream
But never stop to live life and believe in your dream
I woke up and I’m not living my dream
But I learn to live life if you know what I mean

[Chorus]
It’s like the same story written with a different pen
The same eye view through a different lens
Same love from the hearts of different souls
That be walking many paths to similar goals
Write the same story with a different pen
Take the same photograph with a different lens
Same struggle that is filled with the joy and the pain
The same hustle that we feel through the sun and the rain
