Another Man

Chorus
One mans trash is another mans treasures
One mans pain is another mans pleasure
One mans curse is another mans blessing
One mans mistake is another mans lesson
I wish
I hope
I dream
I pray
I find a way
To another land
The steps I take
Are mine to make
I'll never wanna be another man

Verse
I used to envy the cool with benzos
Forget a Honda Accord I couldn't afford a pinto
No fly kick just tip toes
My shoes were a size too small
But I wore them till they get holes
So I never get hoes
With these dirty ass clothes
I wore my sisters hand me down
Like hand me those
Wore my Lil Brot's hand me up
Cause I'm half as tall
I wore my heart on my sleeve
But still laugh it off
I used to think it was my dads fault
He was never around to teach me how to be a man so
I had to wing it
Present and past cause and effect
I come from humble beginning
Nothing is given
Except your balls and respect
Nights huddled around stove for heat no sleep it was just us children
Cold was unyielding
Back when I didn't quite understand the weapon that I'm wielding
One mans ending is another mans forever
One mans hell is another mans heaven
I learn to appreciate the little I was given
Making something out of nothing I'm trying to get it how ya living

Chorus
One mans trash is another mans treasures
One mans pain is another mans pleasure
One mans curse is another mans blessing
One mans mistake is another mans lesson
I wish
I hope
I dream
I pray
I find a way
To another land
The steps I take
Are mine to make
I'll never wanna be another man

Verse 2:
If there's a
way then I'm William
I'm able and willing
Till my children getting paper and chilling
There no time I'm rushing like I stay in the kremlin
I made lane for myself and I'm reving my engines
Rebelling against the machine
Never in me to envy
What in you ain't in me
I'm from a bloodline of Grahoamtonians
A wise man once told me this
The gifts God gives a man are only his
And they can tell who the real and the phony is
Sometimes it's fake friends claiming homie and
That's when your a one start to move like a foe move
But we play by the old rules
My blessing are my blessings
Whats for me ain't for you
To hate on my progress that's a how move
I've had a village mentality since the old school
And it taught me this lesson
One mans ending is another mans forever
One mans hell is another mans heaven
I learn to appreciate the little I was given
Making something out of nothing I'm trying to get it how ya living

Chorus
One mans trash is another mans treasures
One mans pain is another mans pleasure
One mans curse is another mans blessing
One mans mistake is another mans lesson
I wish
I hope
I dream
I pray
I find a way
To another land
The steps I take
Are mine to make
I'll never wanna be another man

Verse 3:
Don't waste your time trying to block my shine
Through faith what's mine can't be stopped I grind
It was written
Described in the scriptures in hieroglyphics
This is the transcription
A script to mental transitions
Tune into the frequency your mind is the transistor
Your spirits the antenna
Negativity is cancerous
We rant, throw hands in air and cuss
Then we wonder why God won't answer us
Looking at somebody else life and compare it to us
Looking at somebody else with eyes of lust
Instead of trying to devise your own plan to come up
Dudes plotting on their man
All the bottles they were popping was for profit what a scam
The whole time you thought he was ya fam
But he was trying to get the upper hand
That's the type the shit to make you never trust again
Then you that this chick got this dude a couple years
One mans ending is another mans forever
One mans hell is another man heaven
I've learn to appreciate the little I was given
Making something out of nothing tearing get it how you living?

Chorus
One mans trash is another mans treasures
One mans pain is another mans pleasure
One mans curse is another mans blessing
One mans mistake is another mans lesson
I wish
I hope
I dream
I pray
I find a way
To another land
The steps I take
Are mine to make
I'll never wanna be another man
