Lyrics

They say that dying young is only for the unlucky
But I envy all the ones that get to leave early
Life’s a trip, you better have your bags ready
You never wanna be the last one to leave the party
I thought that we would go first and you would tell our story
Maybe make a movie about the Rhymesayers rise to glory
The classic albums, the fanfare, the world tours
So it’s kind of weird I’m here now telling yours
I’ve been losing people my whole adult life
Never been one to exploit my pain in a song
I wish this was one I didn’t have to write
But until I do, I’ll never get a chance to mourn
So what you’re hearing now is way more than a song
It’s insurance that your memory remains strong
None stronger than two soldiers that done been to war
Cause even in death, you can’t break that kind of bond
Me and you used to battle fools everywhere
I thought we was only battling with that aggression
But over time, it now seems very clear
That battle was a metaphor for a more important lesson
If you love the art, you’ll fight over its progression
If you think it’s easy, then you probably don’t respect it And if you turn and run whenever people question where your heart is at Then you probably don’t deserve to rep it Now that we made it to the end, what a ride
It was an honor being in the trenches by your side
There’s a place in my heart that I set aside for you my dude
‘Cause great Eyedeas never die
I hope to do half of what you did with your time
Touch the people that you touched here with your rhyme
There’s a place in my heart that I set aside for you my dude
‘Cause great Eyedeas never die
Never die
Never die
Never die
Always loved how you lived life with no regrets
That’s why your spirit touched so many that you never met
Only thing that ever gets me upset
Is strangers telling us specific ways that we should pay respect
It’s hard not to take that the wrong way
When I was taught that everybody mourns their own way
Flower’s on grey, some cry, some pray
But every Rhymesayers artist mourns on stage
They need to understand we still private people
Even if we live very public lives
So if we shed tears and they don’t see it It doesn’t mean that we never cried
But either way I’ma carry the torch
I wish you was around to see just how you influenced me I don’t care if they don’t get what I’m doing now
‘Cause now I’m doing it for me When y’all grabbed them By the Throat, they didn’t get it But you knew that they would come around eventually
I tried to think about how strong y’all was back then
So the nay-sayers words don’t get to me For everything you gave throughout your career
At least I can do is take the time to put it in a song
I still can’t believe you ain’t here
But even though you’re gone, your ideas carry on Now that we made it to the end, what a ride
It was an honor being in the trenches by your side
There’s a place in my heart that I set aside for you my dude
‘Cause great Eyedeas never die
I hope to do half of what you did with your time
Touch the people that you touched here with your rhyme
There’s a place in my heart that I set aside for you my dude
‘Cause great Eyedeas never die
Never die
Never die
Never die
