lyrics

i was thinking
i was walking a thin line
live and die by the check
bust my ass for your fuckin 9 to 9
i’m getting phone calls from death

i was thinking
i was wasting my damn time
lost it all for your gain
shrugged my shoulders
and i told ‘em, “I dont mind,
I’m just too high for the chain”

what do you say?
when we’re all still slaves?
break your back for the grave
all you keep is your name

they told me i was walking a thin line
i was dancing with death
shrugged my shoulders and I told ‘em,
“I dont mind, I got my name on the debts”

they told me I was wasting my damn time
like I aint thought of that yet
they scold me and they told me with no mind
“son you aint got my respect”

what do you say?
when we’re all still slaves?

I know you feel it falling away
every hand we hold is foretold
as a traitor these days
I got tired of living in our pain
mother fucker, I’m too high for the chain
