lyrics

People don’t know what they’ve got until it’s gone
They’re havin’ the time of their lives and then it’s like, so long
Like we take everything for granted
I don’t even understand it

Loss is a very tough feelin’ to grasp
It makes us feel hopeless and sad
Everybody takes things for granted
Like the people around us who don’t even imagine
What an artist went through to get to where they are
Dreamin’ of huge success and fame as a superstar
Picasso put his soul into masterpieces of art
And yet they sold like piss, it really breaks my heart
Then they turn around and sell them for huge bucks
They get millions for those and it truly does suck
It’s like you pissin’ on his grave for the art that he made
These artists get played while you get paid
They show support for you and then they leave like flakes
They pile on pressure until they’re crushed by the weight
You never value what a person gave until they pass on
You don’t know what you’ve got until it’s gone

And you think it’s easy for us to let go
Like these feelin’s are a thing we can easily control
It’s human for us to just go with the flow.
If you don’t understand, I guess you’ll never truly know

For those of us invested, it’s hard to move on
It’s like hearin’ a swan sing it’s final song
It’ll never be the same once it’s lost forever
That one close thing that always brought pleasure
I doubt people would understand the value of such things
When they’d be throwin’ away all their feelins’
I’d be devastated if I lost the love of my life
And yet no one would care for my empathetic plight
I value what I have because I lost so much
I never forgotten my pain, my life has been rough
I respect my family cause they’re the only thing I got
I never forget those lives who were taken from us
And even though I’m just another statistic
I wish for those people who’re listenin’ to this
To not forget who I am, to remember who I be
Take my values like MLK and continue this legacy

My friends all love me
The empire loves me
My family loves me
They’d do anything for me
And even if you don’t realize
And if you’re blind, can’t see your eyes
Just remember one thing
You’re going to miss me when I’m gone
