lyrics

[Chorus]
Line by line, Moment by moment, All I see in front is what is behind me,
Looking out that glass, as it's edging me closer, all my future does is only remind me,
Where I'll Go

[verse]
Where do you come from, What do you see,
All I know I just got this spark in me,
Tell me I'm over, how it may seem,
Living by the sound of every place that I been,

all I see is the mic in front of me, Nobody here to fight for none of me,
I'd love to be a doctor or a lawyer or tom sawyer selling another marble so they paint that fence for ya,
you ever the sun go down on the era you know well, when shops close up, and your records they don't sell,
pray tell, get me when they finally find me, still looking through the eyes of a kid from the ninties,

I don't, see nothing but whatever tell me, I remember wondering why else nobody helped me,
every teacher told me to handle my issues and when hit you I saw principle ask me, "You shoulda told! Why didn't you!"
I feel like it's a catch-22 whenever dudes, tell you mark a number in the book that you'll never use,
I never thought I would ever be smart, of clever too, To see life as something i can get better through,

[Chorus]
Line by line, Moment by moment, All I see in front is what is behind me,
Looking out that glass, as it's edging me closer, all my future does is only remind me,
Where I'll Go


[verse]
Hip hop gave me a voice, but in the beggining I never thought I gave it a choice,
I was too young for clubs, so battling on the internet was better than never feeding this itch that I would seem to get,
but I wanted to do more, skippin class for comedy sports but never got in the door,
and drama was never kind to me, always they kept reminding me, maybe this isn't your thing, never giving a line to me,

finally, I was back into battlin all these rappers who told me I sucked ass at everything I attacked,
recording into my computer monitor every track, until finally I got sick of it, soon as I could react,
I bought that audiotechnica went against my competitors met em shredded ten of em became a tournament veteren,
Never told my high school, no, they'da never respected it, whispering to myself, I'm the IRY champion

[Chorus]
Line by line, Moment by moment, All I see in front is what is behind me,
Looking out that glass, as it's edging me closer, all my future does is only remind me,
Where I'll Go



[VERSE]
I never got to walk for my Diploma, I graduated in the office with a can a grape soda in my hand, So I
Got to say goodbye to my friends, It was just summer school, then back to negotiating all of my plans,
And when I got in college, suddenly all of it caught up with me, suddenly they were letting me be what I want me to be
Joining repertory writing stories musta surely given confidence to never prematurely, just ignore me, or debate my merits,

I ain't inherited much, but arrogance sucks, I deserted it until it was dust,
I musta tried to brush my shoulders with ink of my brush, cause all I see is patterns on my arm you couldn't touch,
I'm writing lyrics on my right hand, stories on my other, and message on my chest saying I ain't scared of nothing,
I stand by every harsh sign in me one by one, all It did grow me up some, run by run,

[Chorus]
Line by line, Moment by moment, All I see in front is what is behind me,
Looking out that glass, as it's edging me closer, all my future does is only remind me,
Where I'll Go
