Lyrics

Gratitude’s An Attitude
Miller House, March 2016

Stay in your own lane
do what you gotta do
To thine own self I gotta be true
Stay in your own lane
Do what you gotta do

Yo, it’s hard having gratitude
When the pain won’t go away
Plans for my future got here for the stay
Dwelling on bad things, dwelling on past days
Remember where you came from
Remember to pray

Gratitude, I ain’t got none of it
Frustrated indifferent tired and sick

Chorus

Everyday the elevator’s harder to ride
maybe there’ll be gratitude on the other side
Use the steps one day at a time,
Turn the disease over and hit it from behind

Chorus

How can I feel grateful after all the harm I’ve done
Every time I feel happiness, it’s something that I shun
My disease keeps telling me, f everything and run
I’m the brother of a bullet, and the son of a gun

Chorus
