lyrics

You gotta be you man
It's true man
Cause you're the best human
For you
Nobody else can fill your shoes
Nobody else can write your blueprint
If they try, they're a nusence
Get rid of em
Find new friends to choose
Keep those around that
Be down for common causes
That got flaws
And know what a real life law is
The type that know truth
Comes from life's rawness
That don't see categorized people
But see broadness
The wrong people shackle you
Of your promise
The wrong people drain you
Of your fondness
The wrong people are lame
That's honest
You should never be ashamed of a thing
That's their problem
You were made of things
Greater than most
Your Mom and I made you
As a toast
A toast to the
Life we live and proudly we boast
It ain't easy
It took efforts and copious notes, but yo
We had to filter through
The do's and the don'ts
Decide for us the
Yes, no's, maybe's and won'ts
You were a yes
From the moment we spoke
And everything after
Was simply out of passion and hope, but yo

(chorus)
They don't get you?
Then bump Miles Davis
They won't let you?
Then bump Miles Davis
They forget you?
Then bump Miles Davis
Days brought to you by Miles Davis


Thoughts about you
from those that aren't you are not true
Take em, crumble them up
And then "pooof"
Know that they for nothing of you
That the choose
They believe different than their just
Victims of their ruse
They got opinions here hidden as truths
And their opinions you be bidding ado
Show em the door with the heel of your shoe
Because they're wack and they got nothing to do (cool?)
Keep your focus on the things
That make your heart pulse
That make your eyes glow
And your mind artful
Cause outta all the things
I've learned this far
Far and away the most important is
Finding love through art
It was the key into your mother's heart
The key to what brought you to be
The love of ours
And what brought life to me
In all its parts
Gave me the right to breath
And haul this heart

(chorus)
They don't get you?
Then bump Miles Davis
They won't let you?
Then bump Miles Davis
They forget you?
Then bump Miles Davis
Days brought to you by Miles Davis

Don't do so cause they said so
Do so cause you know
That what you do
Is for you though
And honest to what you know
Of who you are
And will be
Cause who you are is
What thrills me
No substitutes no fillings
Just organically you
Keep your head
And your eyes peeled
Heart open through the minefield
Life's rigged to define feelings
That you determine for you
The unlucky live in lew
Cause comfort hides the truth
So live honestly and uncomfortably
As you
