    Lyrics

    [Chorus]
    Ooh, I've been travelin' on this road to long
    Just trying to find, my way back home
    The old me, is dead and gone, dead and gone
    And ooh, I've been travelin' on this road to long
    Just trying to find, my way back home
    The old me, is dead and gone, dead and gone

    Ever had one of dem days, you wish woulda' stayed home
    Run into a group of niggas, getting they hate on
    You walk by, they get wrong you reply
    Then shit get blown
    Way outta proportion, way past discussion
    Just you against them, pick one then rush 'em
    Figure you'll get jumped
    That next, they don't wanna stop
    There now they bussin', now you gushin', ambulance
    Rushin' you to the hospital, with a bad concussion
    Plus ya hit four times, plus it hit ya
    Spine paralyzed waist down, now ya wheel chair bound
    Never mind that now, you lucky to be alive,
    Just think it all started you, fussin' with three guys
    Now ya pride in the way, but ya pride is the way you
    Could fuck around, get shot die any day
    Niggas die, every day all over
    Bull shit dope money dice, game ordinary hood shit
    Could this be, 'cause of hip hop music
    Or did the ones, with the good sense
    Not use it, usually niggas
    Don't know what to do, when their back against the wall
    So they just start shootin'
    For red or for blue or for blo' I guess,
    From Bankhead or from your projects
    No more stress, now I'm straight,
    Now I get it now I take time to think,
    Before I make mistakes, just for my family's sake
    That part of me left yesterday, the heart of me is strong today
    No regrets I'm blessed to say, the old me dead and gone away.

    [Chorus]

    I ain't never been scared, I live through tragedy
    Situation coulda been dead, lookin' back at it
    Most of that shit, didn't even have to happen
    But you don't think about it, when you out there trappin'
    In apartments hangin', smokin' and rappin'
    Niggas start shit didn't, next thing ya know we cappin'
    Get locked up, then didn't even get mad
    Now think about damn, what a life I had
    Most of that shit, look back just laugh
    Some shit, still look back just sad
    Maybe my homeboy, till be around
    Had I not, hit the nigga
    In the mouth that time, I won that fight, I lost that war
    I can still see my nigga, walkin' out that door
    Who'da thought I'd never see, Philant no more
    Got enough dead homies, I don't want no more
    Cost a nigga his job, cost me more
    Ida took that ass-whoopin', now for sure
    Now think before I risk my life
    Take them chances to get my stripe
    A nigga put his hands on me alright
    Otherwise stand there, talk shit all night
    Cause I hit you, you sue me,
    I shoot you, get locked up, who me?
    No more stress, now I'm straight,
    Now I get it now I take
    Time to think, before I make mistakes
    Just for my family's sake
    That part of me left yesterday
    The heart of me is strong today
    No regrets I'm blessed to say
    The old me dead and gone away.

    [Chorus]

    I turn my head to the east
    I don't see nobody by my side
    I turn my head to the west
    Still nobody in sight
    So I turn my head to the north,
    Swallow that pill
    That they call pride
    The old me is dead and gone,
    But the new me will be alright
    I turn my head to the east
    I don't see nobody by my side
    I turn my head to the west
    Still nobody in sight
    So I turn my head to the north,
    Swallow that pill
    That they call pride
    The old me is dead and gone,
    But the new me will be alright

    [Chorus]
