This is how I do certain things me and my guitar This is how I ease the pain like a butterfly in a jar I try so hard not to be insecure What's a human being supposed to do My music is my sedative when I'm away from you This is how I Live on airplanes baggage claim see people like me and you se a divide tears in their eyes What's a man supposed to do I stand alone from a distance soaking it all up in With a guitar on my back and a slightly twisted friend This is how I Excuse me if I find it hard to make a frown turn into a grin And everything is so happy and miserable since the day that I let you in Maybe it's because I'm still begging for forgiveness for my sins Forgive some of those people that cut me off again This is how I This is how I bring the beat back Feeling that will dropping bombs a capital g track I'll bring the bottles bottles of Jaeger I got a coke I got the food what you know bout the hoes exposed It's go Every show that we play this is what we're about and this is what I'm gonna say about it It's filled with music we use it each day We pray to the one above help us all in each way We spend time on this earth giving birth to a new sound new generations being new ground so I give this to you it's my gift for free it's the passion for this music flowing inside of me This is how I This is how I blaze the exchange theory in front and if anyone can do it you know mozi has done it In the game of music I'm sonic I run it And if I was a motorbike I'd coast it capital g I gun it This is the flow of lb east side rider big provider all exciter and with me behind ya with a leaf in the grinder you won't need reminding we gonna chief til we windin Rich Hardesty time this world is mine capital g me and lj is creepin can't forget jc, Michael smith, Dave Sullivan takin us where no others been we live

Ain't it funny how silence sounds One mans Babylon is another mans playground Highway rounds passing cars Worshiping dollar bills and those movie stars That coped up girl will try anything To land on the cover of a magazine While I'm just rolling with my carpool scarecrow He doesn't have a lot to say We're just askin’ him not to judge us This hypocritical day We're just askin’ him not to judge us We're all waitin around Who could it be Next famous person to die Coming on the tv Celebrities in the courtroom Just outside the door Who's that unfaithful hooker standing outside the drugstore Well I'm just rolling with my carpool scarecrow He doesn't have a lot to say We're just askin’ him not to judge us This hypocritical day We're just askin’ him not to judge us They got a thirty year to own that ride Workin’ under a box on the hillside You take a hit and you hurt inside You can run but you can’t hide So you laugh real loud Just to ease the pain Pray for sunshine cuz it looks like rain I'm just rolling with my carpool scarecrow He doesn't have a lot to say We're just askin’ him not to judge us This hypocritical day We're just askin’ him not to judge us Just askin him not to judge us This hypocritical day Hey there goes a soccer mom Hey what you got in that sack A furry dog in the window and a baby in the back I'm just rolling with my carpool scarecrow And we don’t got a lot to say We're just askin’ him not to judge us This hypocritical day We're just askin ya not to judge us Just askin ya not to judge us This hypocritical day We all need a carpool scarecrow

And there's nothing new under the sun Close your eyes and escape where you are from Enter a simple state, tranquility You will find that it is it is what it is It is it is what it is Those birds up in the sky want to be friends with you And understanding that helps you to maintain this whole deal Just remember there is nothing new under the sun Dry your eyes cuz it is it is what it is It is it is what it is Satisfaction comes at times when passion rhymes with rhyme The sun is going up again we're frantically pacing the cage once more Sometimes you wish you could’ve erased some of those lines They were the signs of the times when you did what you did what you did Now it is it is what it is I can still feel the love I can still feel the love Rise above rise above rise above Rise above rise above rise above Started changing habits to keep integrity in You find yourself flying closer and closer to the sun time and time again You flipped your middle finger to the people that smiled that love to see ya frown Regardless of those blessings they were given along with their sins Now it is it is what it is It is it is what it is I can still feel the love I can still feel the love I can still feel the love Rise above rise above rise above Rise above rise above rise above Rise above rise above rise above Rise above rise above rise above
