Life Is Like...
(feat. Ashley Mastrorocco)

Intro

The 23rd Stallion
Here's the comin' attraction, lights, camera, action
would you get me a napkin, props on the set
I'm sweatin' profusely, amuse me,  I used to be
such a nice guy but life, over time it was
just lies and I, just cried, cuz it wasn't my character
or was it, the budget was low, yo, yo cousin
pass the script so I can rip it to shreds
it said, go to high school, check,
college next, knowledge yes, than what
a job, a wife, a kid. shyyh
I was taught this so why does it feel so wrong
like I don't belong, like a rock song in a rap playlist
I hate this, where's the director, producer, wait
I said that already is the film jammed or what,
enough, cut-cut-cut 
 

Chorus
Life is like a movie if somebody writes your script
life can also be a stage if you're afraid of taking risks
Life is how you watch your TV, drinking and eatin' chips
not knowing there's a life outside of what you think exists

Life is like a movie if somebody writes your script
life can also be a stage if you're afraid of taking risks
Life is how you watch your TV, drinking and eatin' chips
not knowing there's a life outside of what you think exists

Tur-Bo
I get afraid of the stage, so I betta stay away
at a distance where Iím safe from criticism others may,
try to give when they notice sweat dripping from all the tension
that I witness as da focus of undivided attention
So I, hide for protection cuz the truth is that I need to,
when Iím in a situation where Iím judged by other people
even on my block speakin' to those Iíve met before
feels like a crowd is watchingwhen itís time to go perform
paranoid dat theyíll be mockiní though most ofíem are ignoriní
but some be critiziní everybodyís not supportive
what this epitomizes may not seem all that important
to those who could care less about another oneís opinion,
but Iím not really sure how I can change my way of thinkiní
my actions are instinctive cuz my mind is like a prison
that only traps the thoughts that are completely filled with fear,
so when spotlights approach I will discretely disappear

Chorus
Life is like a movie if somebody writes your script
life can also be a stage if you're afraid of taking risks
Life is how you watch your TV, drinking and eatin' chips
not knowing there's a life outside of what you think exists

Life is like a movie if somebody writes your script
life can also be a stage if you're afraid of taking risks
Life is how you watch your TV, drinking and eatin' chips
not knowing there's a life outside of what you think exists

YKC
If I need a quick fix, time for some action,
how 'bout some love scenes if I need satisfaction
Maybe some light scares to go with my nightmares
get back a childhood that I lost right...here
emptiness that I feel with drama on the scene
false sense of winning with the starter on the team
it's like a dream I focus harder on the screen
to make my memories like a carnival it seem
and what I do, seem to tarnish you I mean
I just reach and turn it louder when all you do is scream
I'm living vicariously through actors on the set
escaping my own life that I soon rather forget
when I have a bad day, as it often be
I flick a switch and see someone worse off than me
I'm controlling it, but it's really controlling me
wasting my own reality watchin' TV

Chorus
Life is like a movie if somebody writes your script
life can also be a stage if you're afraid of taking risks
Life is how you watch your TV, drinking and eatin' chips
not knowing there's a life outside of what you think exists

Life is like a movie if somebody writes your script
life can also be a stage if you're afraid of taking risks
Life is how you watch your TV, drinking and eatin' chips
not knowing there's a life outside of what you think exists
