G Oh girl, this boat is sinking, D Em There's no sea left for me, Em G And how the sky gets heavy D When you are underneath it Em G D Em Oh I want to sail away from here C And God G He came down down down down down down down down C And said B Nothing Verse: Em He rolled up asked him what he was sippin' on G Said lean, you wanna hit it dawg? D That's the same stuff Weezy sippin' huh? Em And tons of other rappers that be spittin' hard Em Yep yep he had 5 up on G When he passed him that Styrofoam D The Easter pink, heard it in a rhyme before Finally got to see what all the hype was on Em And then he took a sip sittin' in the Lincoln G Thinking he was pimpin' as he listened to the system D Em Little did he know that it was just as addictive as bass Not the kind of hit from the kick drum C Hot box let the bass bump Take it to face, gulp G Months later the use went up And every blunt was accompanied by the pink stuff C But Goddamn he loved that feeling Purple rain coated in the throat B Just so healin' Medicine alleviate the sickness Liquid to fix and it comes with a cost Em Wake up, cold sweat, scratchin', itchin' G Trying to escape the skin that barley fit him D Em Gone, get another bottle just get a couple swallows headed towards the bottom Couldn't get off it Em Didn't even think he had a problem G Though he couldn't sleep without getting nauseous D Room spinnin' Thinking he might of sipped just a little bit too much of that cough syrup Em His eyelids closed shut G Sat back in the chair Clutching that cup D Em Girlfriend came and a couple of hours later said his name Shook him, but he never got up C Never got up, never got up G We live on the cusp of death thinkin' that it won't be us C B It won't be us, it won't be us, it won't be us Nah, it won't be us Chorus: Em G Oh girl, this boat is sinking, D Em There's no sea left for me, Em G And how the sky gets heavy D When you are underneath it Em G D Em Oh I want to sail away from here C And God G He came down down down down down down down down C And said B Nothing Verse: Em And he just wanted to act like them G He just wanted to rap like him D Em Us as rappers underestimate the power and the effects we have on these kids Em Blunt passed G Ash in a tin, pack being pushed, harassed by the feds D The fact of it is most people that rap like this talkin' about some xxxx they haven't lived Em Surprise, you know the drill G Trapped in a box declined record sales D Follow the formula Em Violence, drugs and xxx sells So we try to sound like someone else C This is not Californication There's no way to glorify this pavement G Syrup, percocet, and an eighth day will leave you broke, depressed and emotionally vacant D Despite how Lil Wayne lives It's not conducive to being creative B And I know cause he's my favorite And I know cause I was off that same mix Em G Rationalize the xxxx that I try after I listen to dedication D But he's an alien Em I sip that xxxx pass out or play PlayStation Em Months later I'm in the same place G No music made, feeling like a failure D And trust me it's not dope to be 25 and move back to your parents basement Em I've seen my peoples dreams die G I see what they can be denied D And "weeds not a drug" that's denial Groundhog day life repeat each time Em I've seen Oxycontin take 3 lives G I grew up with them, we used to chief dimes D Em I've seen cocaine bring out the demons inside Cheatin' and lyin' Em Friendship cease, no peace in the mind G Stealin' and takin' anything to fix the pieces inside D Broken, hopeless, headed no where Em Only motivation for what the dealer's supplyin' C That rush, that drug, that dope Those pills, that crumb, that roach G Thinkin' I would never do that Not that drug Growin' up nobody ever does C Until you're stuck lookin' in the mirror Like I can't believe what I've become G Swore I was gonna be someone And growin' up everyone always does C We sell our dreams and our potential to escape through that buzz B Just keep me up, keep me up Hollywood here we come
