it's Christmas time in Boynton Beach
mama's cooking chicken but she's out of reach
she's on the left coast I stayed home in Florida
chose to be alone and pray for the Lord ta>
be my Christmas gift, cause I'm feeling adrift
feel weighty mortality, wish this spit would lift
Holiday formalities, car crash fatalities
next year I outlive dad, messed up life dualities
joy and pain not the same but they mix like paint
create a new color, so some things are gained
this year left me drained, my best girl walked away
did everything I could to be good and to convey
that I care but I swear it all vanished like air
but if I'm learning from life, I'm no worse for the wear
now I'm confused about home and is it in sight
is it where I grew up? or where I sleep at night?

it's been a lot of years, it's been a lot of time
life is like a climb, grab that nook on the incline
don't let go for your life, don't let go 'less you're done
there comes a time for all when we cannot hang or run

temptations abound, tryin not to run aground>
I put back upon my head that Royal Ruckus crown
all I want for Christmas is my boy flatline
we made a double album, it's about dang time
homie's over there, and I am over here
but we storming the Bastille like we were some musketeers
like Robes-pierre, we incorruptible
but I stand against that dude, the state's destructible
all I want for Christmas is no president
can we get congress to dissolve their torments
fomenting this mess, media creating stress
Facebook comments, nauseating work distressed
gotta love my neighbor whether Donald or the Aytch>
put away my light saber, forgive the KKK
all I want for Christmas is peace above all things
return their hate with love, I would die for the exchange

forgiveness...is the revolution
beauty...will save the world
