about

Probably the "trappiest" song on the album, I wrote this song after observing the criminal activities of some of my friends and the direction their life was headed, in hopes to direct them to a better future. Ironically, I got a speeding ticket the same day I recorded it in route to the studio. 60 in a 35.

lyrics

Life In The Fast Lane
Chorus
Because In life you get no do over’s
Living in that fast life might get you pulled over
And you don’t see me in a racecar
Don’t space out on me homie easy with that space bar
Because In life you get no do over’s
Living in that fast life might get you pulled over
And you don’t see me in a racecar
Don’t space out on me homie easy with that space bar

Verse 1
And you’ll be off to a great start
It aint hard I can’t tell you how many
Started good then stray far
Now, nobody knows where they are
Shot twice, but not dice, and the aint stars
But deep beneath the graveyard and dead instead
When they made sharp turns misled
Intelligent yet they aren’t learned
In street smarts to be smart enough to
STOP AT THE LIGHT!!!
When red, pyramid schemes and give head to get bread
As if they haven’t all lost it, sold their souls for a small profit
They say money speaks for itself, but it’s small talk shit

Verse 2
I’m not making this up life’s crazy enough, anything else maybe the snuff
As fast as I can tell might as well get as high as hell
Until I lose all sight and smell But what if I’m in jail?
Inside a cell? Can I get bail? Connive and tell
On all my friends? If not, I’m in deep doo-doo
You’d better not peep, you do koo-koo peeps are going to stick it to you
Sheesh! Who knew speed threw you for a loop-de loop?
(At least I got high)Whoop-di-woo
Now you’ve provoked sirens
I won’t tell you how to live your life it just sounds the most like sense
So my friends don’t end up with a revoked license since

Verse 3
Tires might burn with a wide turn
At the intersection in a second your whole life turned
For the worst it’s a lesson I’ve learned
What’s worse? No gas - gas yourself up but you can’t reverse your past
Mirrors broke, glass resolved to burn rubber drove fast
Who says In life “If you weren’t first then you’re so last”?
Ricky Bobby’s legacy isn’t in this and if it is
Then we all need to set a speeding limit at least wear a helmet
Or prepare to deal with the consequences
For those who ask for instruction
I’m a witness to mishaps of those who did laps
On the path of destruction
I’ve suffered headaches
DANGER SIGNS UP AHEAD, WAIT!!!
