The Lion

(Frankie)

Trapped in a desert that feels like ice
I am akin to transitions of this life
My shadow is golden and when it's night
I come alive inside and adopt my plight
I'm whatever you say
And you put that shit in my mouth and you call it that way
whatever
The muse of the situation is pride
And the depths of my soul is alive

but hey

I don't think I'm losing sleep but I think I'm losing something
That's when you take a seat and you think, there must be nothing
I am the leader now baby, I'm hungry to breathe
You know when that lion comes when he owns the street

Hey!

I'm a real bad mothafucka
when I have to be
you spend your time with sheep but hey, not me
I am the sultan now
Baby, I'm hungry to breathe
'Cuz when it all comes down
you will not defeat

I'm a lion, I'm a lion, I'm a lion

Down where the rocks feel like life vests
Down in fell but I wasn't my best
Around there since twelve but I digress
It's either money, man or you get violence
You want your recognition but you get silence
The struggle is the good part so, success is just a reason to suck less

I don't think I'm losing sleep but I think I'm losing something
That's when you take a seat and you think, there must be nothing
I am the leader now baby, I'm hungry to breathe
You know when that lion comes when he owns the street

Hey!

I'm a real bad mothafucka
when I have to be
you spend your time with sheep but hey, not me
I am the sultan now
Baby, I'm hungry to breathe
'Cuz when it all comes down
you will not defeat

I'm a lion, I'm a lion, I'm a lion

(break down)
hey whats wrong kid?
everybody gets sad sometimes just pick up ya shoes
and you'll be alright

I'm coming in like a zombie
the dirt is in my blood, don't stop me
give me respect or neglect this here Rodney
Sign my check or don't fret, it's no hobby
your best best is what's left of these copies
I regret I expect, Bill Cosbys
What's next, I'm all vet, don't stop me

And I've been down in the gutter
I've been on top of the mothafuckin' world
and I know what I like and what I want
I'll tell you no if you get in my way cuz I don't give a fuck

I'm a real bad mothafucka
when I have to be
you spend your time with sheep but hey, not me
I am the sultan now
Baby, I'm hungry to breathe
'Cuz when it all comes down
you will not defeat

I'm a lion, I'm a lion, I'm a lion
