What I Got to Show for It?
by K-Drama

Album: Elegiac Sessions
by K-Drama


[Pre-Hook]
My dad was broke from chasing a high
I'm broke from chasing a dream
Man I'm just tryna survive
Underwater is hard to breathe

[Hook]
I be putting in work
But what I got to show for it?
I be putting in work
But tell me what I got to show for it?

[Verse 1]
I be putting in work (Work!)
Almost everyday I clock in
Grateful for the time allotted
No distractions man I'm locked in
Dropping tracks that are knocking
Pulling all nighters like a locking
My results got me boxed in
Trapped like my father but I'm not him (Sheesh!)
But it look similar, my mind is a Cinema
I believe in me and God's will but what if we in from Ninevah
Please telling me "To be still", don't worry when I hit Him up
However, I must admit it's hard getting by with the minimum
Man, I wish I could give my feel to the world
They deserve it (They deserve it!)
Sometimes I contemplate about my future
And I get nervous (I get nervous!)
I hope I'm being a blessing
More than I'm being a burden (Being a burden!)
I don't wanna wait until I stand before the justice
And know my verdict (Know my verdict!)
When it's all said and done, it doesn't measure up (Up!)
To my expectations tryna get theses letters up (Yuh!)
That's what sad about it, man I work hard (I work hard!)
Yet it feels like we are so far

[Pre-Hook]
My dad was broke from chasing a high
I'm broke from chasing a dream
Man I'm just tryna survive
Underwater is hard to breathe

[Hook]
I be putting in work
But what I got to show for it?
I be putting in work
But tell me what I got to show for it?

[Verse 2]
Thank God for my Grandma
Grateful for my Grandpa
Selflessly stood in the gap
When my dad violated man laws
He was blowing money fast (Fast!)
Didn't even bring the check home
Checking mom's purse for the stash
So he could hit the ave and collect snow
Reckless, didn't care about the repos or evictions
Careless about convictions, visitations, rehabs, prisons
Should've been homeless to the his decisions
Granny had a room for us, I picked a twin
Mom slept on the floor hard like a Rock Fox Force
Trouble made me better (Better)
On average, I out Run-DMC's "Tougher Than Leather" (Leather)
Storms coming, won't let up (Woo!)
Get knocked down and I get up and inscribing these letters
But what takes it's toll is being a slave to these debtors (Man that's real!)
Should my family have to endure this bumpy ride? (Bumpy ride)
What's the difference between my dream and getting high?
I'm exaggerating but it feels like we're barely getting by (Getting by)
Question is, is my dream a drug disguise?

[Pre-Hook]
My dad was broke from chasing a high
I'm broke from chasing a dream
Man I'm just tryna survive
Underwater is hard to breathe

[Hook]
I be putting in work
But what I got to show for it?
I be putting in work
But tell me what I got to show for it?
