Capo on 7th fret
	  		 
Capo on the 7th 
Am C G Am 

Oh girl, this boat is sinking 
There's no sea left for me 
And how the sky gets heavy 
When you are underneath it! 
Oh. I want to sail away from here. 
And god. He came down down down down down down down down 
And said (down down down down down down down down) 
Nothing (down down down down down down down down) 

He rolled up, asked him what he was sippin' on 
He said lean, You want to hit it, dawg? 
That's the same stuff 
Weezy's sippin' huh? 
And tons of other rappers that be spittin' hard 
Yup yup five a bone 
When he passed him that styrofoam the Easter pink, heard it in a rhyme before 
Finally got to see what all the hype was on 
And then he took a sip, sittin' in the Lincoln thinkin' he was pimpin' as he listen to the system 
Little did he know that it was just as addictive as bass 
Not the kind of hit from the kick drum 
Hot box, let the bass bump 
Take it to the face, gulp 
Months later the use went up 
Every blunt was accompanied by the pink stuff 
But Goddamn he loved that feelin' 
Purple rain coated in the throat 
Just so healin' 
Medicine alleviate the sickness 
Liquid affix and it comes with a cost 
Wake up, cold sweat, scratchin', itchin' 
Trying to escape the skin that barely fit him 
Gone, get another bottle just to get a couple swallows 
Headed towards the bottom couldn't get off it 
Didn't even think he had a problem 
Though he couldn't sleep without gettin' nauseous 
Room spinnin', thinkin' he might've sipped just a little bit too much of that cough syrup 
His eyelids closed shut 
Sat back in the chair clutchin' that cup 
Girlfriend came and a couple hours later said his name shook him but he never got up 

He never got up, he never got up 
We live on the cusp of death thinkin' that it won't be us 
It won't be us, it won't be us, it won't be us 
Nah, it won't be us 
Oh girl, this boat is sinking 
There's no sea left for me 
And how the sky gets heavy 
When you are underneath it! 
Oh. I want to sail away from here. 
And god. He came down down down down down down down down 
And said (down down down down down down down down) 
Nothing (down down down down down down down down) 

Now he just wanted to act like them 
He just wanted to rap like him 
Us as rappers underestimate the power and the effects that we have on these kids 
Blunt passed, ash in a tin, pack being pushed, harassed by the feds 
The fact of it is most people that rap like this talkin' about some shit they haven't lived 
Surprise, you know the drill 
Trapped in a box, declined record sales 
Follow the formula violence, drugs, and, sex sells 
So we try to sound like someone else 
This is not Californication 
There's no way to glorify this pavement 
Syrup, Percocet, and an eighth a day will leave you broke, depressed, and emotionally vacant 
Despite how Lil Wayne lives 
It's not conducive to being creative 
And I know 'cause he's my favorite 
And I know 'cause I was off that same mix 
Rationalize the shit that I'd try after I listen to dedication 
But he's an alien, I'd sip that shit, pass out or play Playstation 
Months later I'm in the same place 
No music made, feeling like a failure 
And trust me it's not dope to be 25 and move back to your parent's basement 
I've seen my people's dreams die 
I've seen what they can be denied 
And "weeds not a drug" - that's denial 
Groundhog Day life repeat each time 
I've seen Oxycontin take three lives 
I grew up with them, we used to chief dimes 
I've seen cocaine bring out the demons inside 
Cheatin' and lyin' 
Friendship cease, no peace in the mind 
Stealin' and takin' anything to fix the pieces inside 
Broken, hopeless, headed nowhere 
Only motivation for what the dealer's supplying 
That rush, that drug, that dope 
Those pills, that crumb, that roach 
Thinkin' I would never do that, not that drug 
And growing up nobody ever does 
Until you're stuck, lookin' in the mirror like I can't believe what I've become 
Swore I was goin' to be someone 
And growing up everyone always does 
We sell our dreams and our potential 
To escape through that buzz 
Just keep me up, keep me up 
Hollywood here we come 

Oh girl this boat is sinking 
There's no sea left for me 
And how the sky gets heavy 
When you are underneath it 
Oh, I want to sail away from here 
And god. He came down down down down down down down 
And said 
Nothing
