Song Lyrics

My lawyer's son died in his sleep last night
Got me thinkin’ 'bout who I was in my past life
To be surrounded by so much pain
I understand my karma, but why is their's the same?
Two good people, two amazin’ sons
Just yesterday, they had both, now they raisin' one
I look at the clouds and just think
I could lose mine, or they could lose me in one blink
When I think one day it all ends, I start to drink
And fathom suicide, 'cause I was almost on the brink
And it feel like my family been jinxed
Ever since I found my grandmother stiff
Leanin' over the kitchen sink
I could cry enough tears to float Noah's Ark
Perfect health, but she died of a broken heart
And after that, it was a domino effect
First my uncle, then my daddy, I guess I'm in line next

I got lost on the roadside
Yeah, I lost my way
I give thanks to the Most High
'Cause he kept me safe
Hope to God that I don't die
So I pray
If I go, mama, don’t cry
I was on the roadside
I was on the roadside

How come you can’t learn a lesson until you go through it?
How come you can think about the past, but can't go to it?
If I could, I would float through it
Walk up to Triple X’s BMW window and stick a note to it
Tell him to drive off, the Devil comin'
Ever since he fell from Heaven, he been tryin' to settle somethin'
I keep the faith and try not to question God
But I got a problem when I see innocent people die
I sympathize with Jews, I sympathize with blacks
Sympathize with Natives, America’s yours if you want it back
Where the hunger at?
Probably under a tree in Mississippi by the river where they hung us at
If Jesus walked, why we all runnin' laps?
Feel like endin' racism further than where the sun is at
A war to keep people from people, how dumb is that?
I guess we shouldn't put our thoughts on the front of hats

I got lost on the roadside
Yeah, I lost my way
I give thanks to the Most High
'Cause he kept me safe
Hope to God that I don't die
So I pray
If I go, mama, don't cry
I was on the roadside
I was on the roadside

For sure that my soul will fly
Cold, drippin' on the other side
I know it happened to me every time
Caught out on the roadside
Thumb high in the wind, itch
I tell my mama I'ma be alright now
I'll be home in a few weeks
Soon, 'til then I'll sing this song to you

I got lost on the roadside
Yeah, I lost my way
I give thanks to the Most High
'Cause he kept me safe
Hope to God that I don't die
So I pray
If I go, mama, don't cry
I was on the roadside
I got lost on the roadside
Yeah, I lost my way
I give thanks to the Most High
'Cause he kept me safe
Hope to God that I don't die
So I pray
If I go, mama, don't cry
I was on the roadside
I was on the roadside
