Empty Promise- Lyric Breakdown

What's up everyone! This here is a little something I wrote to a beat I made late 2018. I thought it would be cool if I laid out the lyrics a bit for people to follow along to. With this track I decided to repeat the 2nd part of each verse as a hook because I enjoyed the rhyme scheme. I figured I'd visualize it here on the Shneal blog! Anyways, I hope you enjoy!

 

Empty Promise:

 

Not frontin' for nothin'/ A hundred K Couldn't get me to say/ somethin'on the mic that I didn't wanna/ Success is certain, been workin' harder/ Since the birth of my Daughter, Determined Father/ The surface scars were worth the cost/ It's a perfect story, imperfect author/ most of y'all try & coast along/ if you ain't givin' it your all why even bother?/ When you reach in far to the deepest darkness/ either be the spark or be leaving heartless/ if you be the spark you'll receive a target/ and a name tag with the words "starvin' artist"/ wear both proud if your speech is honest/ and you wanna break free from the leash your on it's/ bittersweet like an empty promise/ that you want to believe but it seems impossible

It's bittersweet like an empty promise that you want to believe but it seems impossible- X4

The open-minded get a rope to climb/ Out the hole with a goal of what they hope to find/ but most the time it's no surprise/ Our problems aren't solved, they're multiplied/ 'cause it works against us/ to ask the questions/ just to get answers we know are lies/ so close your eyes & put your woes aside/ life is so much more than a slow demise/ When you reach in far to the deepest darkness/ either be the spark or be leaving heartless/ if you be the spark you'll receive a target/ and a name tag with the words "starvin' artist"/ wear both proud if your speech is honest/ and you wanna break free from the leash your on it's/ bittersweet like an empty promise/ that you want to believe but it seems impossible

It's bittersweet like an empty promise that you want to believe but it seems impossible- X4

 

If you guys like this type of lyric breakdown let me know! I think it may be cool to do this for different songs!

Peace,
