Track Name: Had My Share Of Fist Fights
Had my share of fist fights and my blood split on the floor
lost a lot of who I was to the concrete of this world
so much of my life I wasted cut up and sore
I spilt more blood than I know for the cause of nothing at all

This won't weigh me down no more

Picked myself off the ground for the last time I hope
I can't look myself in the mirror and see no one I know
When my fate calls on me I'll be anywhere but here
I'll leave a note on the door sayin' "no time to spare"

This won't weigh me down no more

Been there done that put my fist in the air after puttin your damn face first in the ground
Now I'm older and I think that it's time to do right so I try and I try with all of my might
I'm alright now

This won't weigh me down no more
This won't weigh me down
