I Quit

I Quit written and produced by Enilssab

[Intro]

What does a job do for you that you can’t do for yourself.
You can’t tell me you love waking up early for something you don’t love.
Your everyday pain makes another man rich.
Don’t be afraid.
Plan your escape.
You’re not a slave.

[Verse1]

Looking back at myself now I’m laughing ignored my passion,
Should’ve took my destiny myself instead of asking,
I can see it clearly only I can see my dream,
Been abstaining yearly only I can see my dream,
See I never lived cause I lived conservative,
I refuse to let others give into ideas that are primitive,
Freedom is the motivation, Even in remote locations,
You will be forced with patience, To a achieve a low wage vocation,
That’s the American Dream, Shouldn’t have been mine,
Money is what it seems, But there’s a thin line,
A friend told me they take the best years out of your life,
Right now I’m afraid to let kids come out of my wife,
But the world makes you feel ashamed about doing music,
If I was an actor or an artist I’d pursue it,
That’s my dream I’m wondering what’s yours,
Sometimes you gotta do what you love to get more,

[Chorus]

Only I can my dream, (Oh I, Oh I)
Lord please save me from this modern day slavery, (Oh I, Oh I)
Only I can my dream, (Oh I, Oh I)
Lord please save me from this modern day slavery, (Oh I, Oh I)

Only I can see my dream I’ve just reached the surface,
Know your place until you know your purpose,
Only I can see my dream my God knows it’s worth it,
Know your place until you know your purpose,

[Verse 2]

Gotta feel my pain, Cause there’s nothing I gained,
Wasted a third of my life, Could’ve been on a plane,
Could’ve been overseas could’ve had folks been quoting me,
Shouldn’t have applied for them openings,
Tired of jobs soul soaking me,
But I’m like when do I start,
Now I’m like when does it end,
Just to get laid off cycle got me doing it again,
You ain’t open your eyes by now,
30 years done went by by now,
Pun intended I meant bye bye now,
Listen and envision my cry now,
Chip on my shoulder but I’m still getting older,
Sick of sipping Folgers, plus I’m not a stockholder?
Wait a minute what’s the hold up,
Seems like you know what’s up,
See I thought I’d lose so I really had to choose,
Told if you chase your dreams would be an act of a fool,
Rapping is nice I know that I’m sick,
But with no sacrifice you’ll never get rich,
I could talk about my race but I could go on for days,
Instead of trying to make a change I could show em the way,
I could talk about my race but I could go on for days,
Instead of trying to make a change I could show em the way,

[Chorus]

Only I can my dream, (Oh I, Oh I)
Lord please save me from this modern day slavery, (Oh I, Oh I)
Only I can my dream, (Oh I, Oh I)
Lord please save me from this modern day slavery, (Oh I, Oh I)

Only I can see my dream I’ve just reached the surface,
Know your place until you know your purpose,
Only I can see my dream my God knows it’s worth it,
Know your place until you know your purpose,

Only I can my dream,
Lord please save me from this modern day slavery,
Only I can my dream,
Lord please save me from this modern day slavery,
Only I can my dream,
Lord please save me from this modern day slavery,
Only I can my dream,
Lord please save me from this modern day slavery,
