Punch – Gold

Punch – Gold

[Intro]
Just got a text, probably remind him on Socrates, from my IG post

[Hook]
All my life, I been told everything that glitters ain’t gold
Now that I’ve arrived, I see these truths unfold before my eyes in a world so cold

[Verse 1]
Compulsive dreamer, pessimistic overthinker
Never indulging reefer, seldom Hennesy drinker
Wear my heart on my sleeve with a poker player’s demeanour
Balanced emotion, you rarely know what I’m thinking
This is a special dedication, dedicated to streets that I was raised in
Where Ray was slayed in, where his killer gon’ see the same fate that he did
Poetic justification of youth’s frustration
Reap what you sow, small mind approach
I’m digging deep in my soul, I’m tryna find quotes
To help me see the silver lining in this hurricane
We used to the rain, hoping to wash away these stains
But blood don’t come out of clothes, neither do bullet holes close even if them wounds heal
My mind’s forever exposed to them cold hills, somehow a nigga had hope still
But I’m barely out the fire, in fact these flames is burning my back, creating permanent tattoos
As I recall the book of Matthew, these are the last days and what have you I’m a firm believer
I rarely practice what I preach yeh
So if this falls on deaf ears and never reach ya
I’m blood guilty beneath ya, before you cast one stone just know I need ya

[Hook]
All my life, I been told everything that glitters ain’t gold
Now that I’ve arrived, I see these truths unfold before my eyes in a world so cold, nigga this world so cold
Everything that glitters ain’t gold, nigga this world so cold
Til my demise I’m in this world so cold, nigga this world so cold

[Verse 2]
There’s something I can feel
Like pyramid energy feels for real
I’m just tryna’ keep it real
Whatever that is
‘Cos I could think a thought and make it happen
It’s no secret the law of attraction is written in our fabric
The most basic interactions are accurate
Maybe there’s too far left for us to digest this song
And in the midst of our doom I’m just tryna’ consume
They say [?] on the stars and the moon and the ancient Egyptian tombs
What about these babies dying in the womb, that don’t affect you?
Tell the truth, I know I heard that she don’t respect your youth
I know you well versed in the sacred secrets and thirst knowledge for whatever breathes it
You’re on your poor righteous [?], wise intelligence, you rhyme with such elegance
But the homie got killed, what’s the relevance?
They gave my uncle twenty-seven years with no evidence
It’s really real out here, niggas are getting killed out here
Where’s your content?
How do you sleep, where’s your conscience?
How could you ever forget the projects?
Nigga my heart bleeds, stop it
You can’t disown with this home
With that said I take them whenever I zone
If it never I Rome, the empire’s standing strong behind me
On my side like my [?]
Flesh on my flesh, it’s embedded in me my IV
80s baby stuck in the 90s, ten khakis creased on top of Cortez Nikes
White t-shirt with a dope dealer’s psyche
Swear air, ain’t too many left that’s like me

[Hook]
All my life, I been told everything that glitters ain’t gold
Now that I’ve arrived, I see these truths unfold before my eyes in a world so cold, nigga this world so cold
Everything that glitters ain’t gold, nigga this world so cold
Til my demise I’m in this world so cold, nigga this world so cold

[Outro]
Nigga this world so cold
Nigga this world so cold
Til my demise I’m in this world so cold, nigga this world so cold
