Russ – In The Dirt Lyrics

Russ In The Dirt Lyrics

Excuse me, man, my voice a little gone, man
But, um, I had to get my head right, man, for real, for real
Take back control (Yeah)
I don’t think a lot of us realize the negatives patterns that we get ourselves into, and, uh
We’re the only ones that can pull ourselves out, you feel me? (Come on)
Yeah

I start my year off
My momma use these hundred dollar bills to wipe her tears off
Dad be talkin’ my ear off
I’m lucky that I have him though
I know I should call him more, I’m workin’ on my balance so
I’m not such a workaholic, I’m just obsessed with progress
Victory’s subjective in this game, it’s a fuckin’ contest
Everybody’s brainwashed, we ain’t on the same time but look up at the same clock
Different destinations, but we get off at the same stop
Everyone confused, we don’t know how we ended where we at
But we refuse to take accountability for the mindset that we choose
We forgot to lock the door, the devil’s takin’ off his shoes
Gettin’ comfy, plantin’ seeds now (Seeds now)
And we wonder why our garden got weeds now (Hol’ on)
It’s hard to breathe, anxiety don’t let us sleep now (Oh-oh-oh)
But we forget we got the key to be free now
So let’s be free now

I ain’t gonna let the devil win, nah, never
I ain’t gonna let the devil in, nah, never
Feelin’ worried, that’s the devil at work, on God, I’ma put him in the dirt, in the dirt, in the dirt
I ain’t gonna let the devil win, nah, never
I ain’t gonna let the devil in, nah, never
Feelin’ worried, that’s the devil at work, on God, I’ma put him in the dirt, in the dirt, in the dirt

I was overindulgin’ in food, pussy and liquor
Bad habits made the devil the grow bigger, go figure
I had no resistance (None), therefore no restrictions (None)
On the energy that occupied my soul’s existence (Damn)
I was driftin’ ’cause I didn’t have definite aim, devilish game
Only wins when a negligent brain finesse the rings
Out my hand control my thoughts (Thoughts)
Fear and jealousy, my biggest enemy was moi
Knew that I was lost, had to find my path again
Had to figure out, where I was goin’, draw a map again
Cut back on the habits, I challenged my willpower (Yeah)
Mental, self-control and discipline is real power (Real power)
I was angry, lustful, blind, distruthful ’til I woke up and said, “None of this is Russell”
Give me me back, I took the keys back
And changed the locks so I don’t relapse, won’t let the devil creep back in, believe that (Yeah)

I ain’t gonna let the devil win, nah, never
I ain’t gonna let the devil in, nah, never
Feelin’ worried, that’s the devil at work, on God, I’ma put him in the dirt, in the dirt, in the dirt
I ain’t gonna let the devil win, nah, never
I ain’t gonna let the devil in, nah, never
Feelin’ worried, that’s the devil at work, on God, I’ma put him in the dirt, in the dirt, in the dirt

I ain’t gonna let the devil win, nah, never
I ain’t gonna let the devil in, nah, never
Feelin’ worried, that’s the devil at work, on God, I’ma put him in the dirt, in the dirt, in the dirt
I ain’t gonna let the devil win, nah, never
I ain’t gonna let the devil in, nah, never
Feelin’ worried, that’s the devil at work, on God, I’ma put him in the dirt, in the dirt, in the dirt
