It's all gone

I’m not the table you can come and lay your cup down on, now
I’m not the shoulder for a bag. The one that carried a heavy load
I’m not the road that you take when you looking for a short cut, uh
I ain’t the stepping stone to be stepping on
I ain’t nobodies crutch
I ain’t the money man, with your money, man
You ain’t looking at me
I’m not the cheap one, looking at me son
You ain’t looking at free
I ain’t the dish rag to come clean up all the shit that you dish out
Ain’t got no check for em'
If you checking in, mothafucka, check this out
I’m not the the trash can. Not the last girl at the finish line
I’m not the new kid on the block that you can just follow and push around
I’m not the fucking needle in the hay stack that you finally found
This ain’t no free rent
Come to pitch your tent,  you ain’t tying me down
I’m not a bus ride you can hop inside and just roll away clean
Cause I hold up the weight for the team

I’m not the gold watch
And the new truck that your scheming to cash out
Unless your lookin…

Goodbye Daddy

I left my home still as a child 
I walked a thousand soary miles 
To wait for my father, to gather up his truth 

He said my boy you've got to run 
Don't wait for me, don't wait for mum 
We'll come get you, when it's safe for us to move 

So I waited many years, 
held back the pain behind my tears 
For my father, to come find me like he said 

And in that time I was alone, 
so many years without my home 
I made brothers of a different kind instead 



And in the time I didn't know, 
just how hard the wind could blow 
Towards disaster, and the things that I would see 

So this here I say
A hero into the masses, 
to those born without chances 
There's a freedom that everyone deserves 

I know there's greed and there's corruption 
I've seen death and mass destruction 
But I'm telling you, and I hope that I'm heard 

And I will not be commanded, 
And I will not be controlled 
And I will not let my future go on, 
without the help of my soul 



I will not be commanded,
