"Man On Fire" lyrics - BIG K.R.I.T.

"Man On Fire"

(Fuck em) These hoes come and go, shorty (But I don't love em)
Yeah, all I ever had was God (And a pistol)
My grandma ain't around the home (I could swear I miss her)
The world at my front door (Is how it feels)
I'm havin' nightmares of dyin' (I swear it's real)
I'm scarred from a life of horror (When will I heal?)
I drink a bottle everyday (That's how I deal)
It's a blessing I saw twenty four (Ain't that the truth)
The police never give a pass (They run and shoot)
They killin' all my lil niggas (Pray for the youth)
I'm thinkin' bout retaliation (Pray for me too)

I'm livin' on the edge, watchin' for a sign
But tomorrow never comes, I'm runnin' out of time
Lookin' in the mirror, waitin' for a change
Tired of the pain, wonderin' will it rain?
I'm a man on fire, I'm a man on fire
I'm a man on fire, I'm a man on fire

I'm tired of being broke (But how can I do better?)
Yeah, my partner haulin' gold (And never, ever let up)
Push the pedal to the metal (Tryin' not to crash)
The law's right behind me (Tell 'em kiss my ass!)
Burdens on my shoulders (Gotta pay the bills)
Roaches in my kitchen (Eyes full of tears)
Get it while it's good (Get it how you live)
Yeah, I lost a couple friends (But that's just how it is)
Never trust a soul (Cuz everybody's sellin')
Never speak your business (Cuz everybody's tellin')
Be careful when you shine (Cuz most niggas jealous)
It's death before dishonor (Now my foes under pressure)


Lil haters in the world (The price of bein' famous)
I'm tryin' to get to heaven (And kick it with the angels)
Been puttin' in the work (Dyin' to do some dirt)
God knows my heart (Cuz I ain't in the church)
'Cuz everyday a struggle (The others live in storm)
What happened to the world? (2000 and beyond)
Your baby's havin' babies (Niggas dyin' to kill)
Yeah, I'm afraid to die (But I ain't happy here)
