 [VERSE] 
  Bm 
 Everything I did I always gave it my best
                  A
 I don't know if anyone relates but the feeling that 
  A 
 I get is like a truck sitting on my chest
            G 
 Wondering how much do I got left
  G 
 My last call, my last step
                 Em
 I'm not gonna wait just to see what's next
                   A 
 I go hard 'cause today could be my last breath

                    Bm
 We do life and we can't relive it
                                                A 
 We only get one chance, if you blink, then you might just miss it
    A                         G
 Many people come and go, they all just visit
    G 
 Don't ever expect nothin' different
                    Em 
 Just listen as I paint this image that you all revisit
           A 
 Yeah my glass half empty but I still might sip it

        Bm 
 I was traumatized
                                                      A 
 What would you have said when you was looking in my momma's eyes? Nothin'
                                          G 
 Yeah, I might have said I was okay but I probably lied
  G 
 So this pain is how I harmonize
                                   Em 
 Making impact, that's what I personify
  Em                                            A 
 Yes, I'm making music that you cannot just define by the numbers on my Spotify
              Bm 
 All of this pain I just wanna be happy

 Momma almost died the same day that she had me
                  A 
 Driving to the hospital, she swerved and crashed badly
   A 
 Doctor said I was a miracle while looking at my daddy
        G 
 I was zero when I first dodged death
  G
 I was six when the devil told me to watch my step
                          Em 
 Couldn't sleep, I was scared to go inside my bed
                            A 
 Fighting demons, I was hearing things inside my head

                  Bm 
 So back to the doctor, he didn't have a diagnosis
                              A 
 So my whole damn life I felt lost while fighting psychosis
     A 
 Talking to myself hoping nobody would notice
              G 
 Mom said "pray" every time I heard the voices
 G 
 Life or death, every day I swear I made choices
             Em
 Knife in my hand trying not to lose focus
                       A 
 Playing basketball religiously to drown out the noises, man

         Bm
 Let me explain that it's like laying on train tracks
     Bm
 Grabbing guns contemplating blowing your brain back
              A 
 Eyes closed shut watching everything fade black
    A
 People stepping over you, you feel like a placemat, fuck
  G
 And let me make it clear, God is the only one that I've ever feared
                        Em 
 But you start to get paranoid and look over your shoulder 
                                  A
 when these people have been hurting you for so many years

                Bm
 So I had to escape
  Bm 
 If you listening I know that you relate
                                         A
 Is that feeling that you get like your life 
   A 
 and existence was all just one big mistake
                                      G 
 I felt trapped and I couldn't find space
   G 
 I went and got lost in the things I create
   G                                               Em
 Ever since I was a kid, people hated and they judged everything that I did
                      A
 So I went into my mind and created the abyss

                  Bm 
 Man, I swear I did, how the hell y'all think I make all these hits?
                        A
 It's 'cause I've been broken, beaten, dragged, 
   A 
 laughed at, scorned, burned, and kicked
                G
 So I get to reach in this endless pit of hurt and pain from all that shit
                       Em
 And that's the only reason that your people come here 
                     A 
 or for God's sake even know that Dax exists

                  Bm
 This is how it feels to drown, 
  Bm 
 this is how it looks when you're lost and you can't be found
                   A 
 The abyss was a place I'd visit, 
  A 
 but I went so much that I'm gone and I'm stuck here now
              G
 This is not music, this is not dope, 
   G 
 this is me begging y'all to throw me a rope (Help me!)
                   Em 
 So I can try to climb up the place where I came in my life 
           A 
 when I spiral then first lost hope

          Bm
 Let me explain, I've been Dax so long 
                      A 
 I got PTSD when somebody says my real name
                                  G 
 But I guess that's the price you pay
    G                                              Em 
 I didn't want it to be like this, but I guess it is what it is
    A          Bm
 Inside the abyss
