Mama said be productive
Write, read, use your mind.
I said I'm scared for the future
She reminded me an angel is watching over me
Mama said things will be okay
If I win, which I will, or lose, which I'm afraid of
I said I'm anxious for the day
She reminded me she is always here for me
I lost my will to live before,
Now I've too much to live for
Even if it's just you, mama.
But there is a contract on my wall
With a time limit and bullets stating
What I must accomplish by the time is up.
Every day that passes mama
I'm afraid I'm failing myself
Just remind me of anything, please
Tell me on the phone what your dog looks like
I've never met him
I've not seen you in nearly 4 years
Just remind me what you always say
I used to hear it everyday
My body fights me, mama
My chest hurts and my throat pinches
I'm forgetting who I am
Remind me, mama?
