About “Empty Hallways”

I ran into all types of issues while trying to put this track together…but I won’t bore you with the details.

I thought this track up while…walking down an empty hallway at work. It was as if the environment lent itself to self-evaluation. So, I asked questions…but the hallway remained silent.

As usual, it probably sounded better in my head than it does recorded. I used another one of those Big B beats, it’s called Twisted, and I thought it worked well for the what I was trying to do (in my head) – maybe he’ll take the acappella and throw it onto another beat. Let me know what you think people.

Lyrics to “Empty Hallways”

In an empty hallway, I let my mental float
Hoping that it reaches a so much better coast
I ask my fading hopes for the things I want the most
But it’s just an empty hallway, quiet as a ghost

Where did all my time go, where are all my folks
Caught up in day to day or struggling I suppose
Where are all my old friends, they vanished in the smoke
Caught up in the hustle or chasing after hoes

Maybe I’m just bitter cuz I feel I’m getting old
And the things I’m used to doing don’t do much for me no more
So maybe I’ve been searching for that thing that makes my core glow
Maybe I’m just fooling myself, maybe I’m just bored though

Don’t ask about the future cuz no one ever knows
They say they going somewhere but no one ever goes
They claim they know the secret but no one ever shows
Man, that secret they can keep it, I’m on another road

I’m driving in the fast lane but they moving too slow
Everything is my way, it’s fucking up my flow
Poisoning my baby food, they don’t want me to grow
Please don’t think I’m greedy when I say I’m bout the dough

In an empty hallway, I let my mental float
Hoping that it reaches a so much better coast
I ask my fading hopes for the things I want the most
But it’s just an empty hallway, quiet as a ghost

I got demons on the inside telling me attack
Demons on the outside riding on my back
Angels keep on falling tryna keep my ass on track
But my angels lack the gumption so they let me fade to black

They are not the reason this is not their fault
Sometimes I keep my feelings locked inside my vault
When I pull them out people seem to be appalled
So I gotta put them back in and switch to my default

The last time it was all good I really can’t recall
They say to keep your pride but that comes before the fall
They say if I need help all I gotta do is call
But when I make the call they say they can’t help at all so

They ask me if I love them, I keep them so enthralled
They ask me for my love but first I have to make them crawl
Sometimes I get so caught up I forget that it’s all false
It’s just another memory that plagues this empty hall
