Just Being Jake: Song Lyrics, "Praying Eye's"

35 4 4

Chorus

I sit with praying eye's in the streets

Living life in the back streets and seats

Made me fight with my soul, book of new to old beats

Hiatus brought on me from dead leaves

I beg the lord oh please

The tree's of hope don't have the same beauty

Verse 1

I got to know who the real enemy is 

Have to move before the prey 

This isn't chess or the game of spades

These are real emotional blades

Cutting me down of my pride, leaving me with no space

Tearing out every sound in the record case

Making it so difficult to see the cover of the case

You can't even see it's face, just the back of it

Within the wind hiding out every detail

So pale like my skin

My eye's taken away of it's color

Family doesn't feel like kin, no love

My now ex left me to drown in the cove

Tryna reach my hand above

Verse 2

Whatever I do it never seems never enough

Yet no matter what I want you to feel my veins and blood as it flows

As the emotions aren't covered by the white blood cells

Adrenaline reaching my top high

I could jump from another building 100,000 feet away

Cuz now the world shows its true colors as it starts to Jade

This is how I deal with the cities and their dismays 

I'm gonna show you my passion before and after I make it to fame

In your eyes the most beautiful aurra rays

No one can hold me in a box

I can't help when my mind raises and drops

The rebel in your eyesight on the spot

Everyone coming out for you and I, I won't be caught

Chorus

I sit with praying eye's in the streets

Living life in the back streets and seats

Made me fight with my soul, book of new to old beats

Hiatus brought on me from dead leaves

I beg the lord oh please

The tree's of hope don't have the same beauty

Verse 3

This is the energy of what the chorus feeds from

I get it from how I was outcasted and shunned

I can barely breathe through my lungs

People twisting speech from their tounges

They said what can I do for America, not what it can do for me

Yet I'm going all out America

That is pain and fear for ya

As it rains down water not stars

I have scars that won't leave, and I don't show it

Not gonna show the people a weakness

 Not gonna let them see these broken pieces

Cuz I hold it, some of the emotion I posted it

Verse 4

Tryna see hope with the bible in my hands

Reading Corinthians as these words dance

Only 21 being punched in the face and up against the fence

I get up and show the do's from the can't's

Although I'm stripped of the ability to trust others

Crashing down broken propelers

And I, let out the scream of frustration as the line stayed flat

Tryna get the heartrate and bring it back

To my old girlfriend, you won't find another like me

I chose my stage name for that reasoning

Walking still to emotion as the world seasons

Old ways lay to treason

Beholding the open sky, ah man I need assitance

Onto the sky I pray with praying eye's

Chorus

I sit with praying eye's in the streets

Living life in the back streets and seats

Made me fight with my soul, book of new to old beats

Hiatus brought on me from dead leaves

I beg the lord oh please

The tree's of hope don't have the same beauty
