lyrics

[Verse 1]

My college days had a lot of rage on the page
Anxiety was commonplace, nervous just to rock a stage

Couldn’t even concentrate, wasn’t making honor grades
Bit off more than chewable and put another on my plate

Life full in front of me, but stop and wait, contemplate
Neither felt like options for the way that I would operate

A tireless pursuit ‘cause I want a place among the greats
Started rocking parties giving all it takes I’m on the way

Living room fists pumping, hits bumping out the system
Record spinning, DJ cutting mixing, feel the rhythm

Inspired finding freedom, need delivered from this prison
The vibe was so alive definition of us living

Cook a verse, put in work, with a preface to my ethic
I’m only giving substance you can find in every message

Tireless in effort spitting cadence 'til I’m breathless
Every moment precious, check it, energy infectious


[Chorus]

We take it back, we take it back
We take it back to the good old days

We take it back, we take it back
We take it back to the good old days

We bring it back, we bring it back
We bring it back like the good old days

We bring it back, we bring it back
We bring it back like the good old days


[Verse 2]

You ever had the feeling you won’t make it up the mountain?
Watching stress pile up continuous compounding

Rat racing, back breaking, life is such a killer
Underpaid and overworked, the story so familiar

Forty hour student plus this call center overtime
Had to toe the line, but my growing strides were stepping up to coincide

Open wide, stretching whole divides
For the moment when the flow aligns, roll the dice, I know it’s time

Debt possessor pressing just to meet a monthly quota
Hit the books for credit, steady seeking this diploma

Barely rolling day to day while idling my motor
Inching closer to the precipice without it going over

Journalling my consequence, all indents are common sense
Letters to the editor, I’m saving all the documents

Easing up the burden, current burning through the conduit
Music making balance paying homage to the monument


[Chorus]

We take it back, we take it back
We take it back to the good old days

We take it back, we take it back
We take it back to the good old days

We bring it back, we bring it back
We bring it back like the good old days

We bring it back, we bring it back
We bring it back like the good old days


[Verse 3]

Still enrolled so my syllables are higher learning
Fire burning, pushing got me writing in a fury

Bracing feeling tighter every time the wire turning
Eternally discerning destination or the journey

Treadmill extended had me disobeying loiter signs
Dreams pacing out the clock, pray there’s no destroying mine

Toiled 'til it’s endless so my seeds had probably soiled fine
Expected just to walk off stage to unemployment lines

Feels like it was yesterday, such a clairvoyant time
Annoying and avoiding the entitlement of royal minds

Blood raising to a boil nearly went and spoiled mine
Shooting to the top like these Tesla coil climbs

Bigger stage, still I’m in a rage, ain’t no way to heal it
Emotions are conveyed so now everybody feel it

Finally prevailed after years of fighting strong
Worried I’d forget, so I had to write this song


[Chorus]

We take it back, we take it back
We take it back to the good old days

We take it back, we take it back
We take it back to the good old days

We bring it back, we bring it back
We bring it back like the good old days

We bring it back, we bring it back
We bring it back like the good old days
