About Vagrant Story (Place Where You Die)

Yup, another old retro track. Vagrant Story is yet another song about the hood…more or less 🙂 As far as any of my rap music goes, you can tell this one is old just by the language I use. I recorded to the beat of the Money, Cash, Hoes song by Jay-Z (featuring DMX and produced by Swizz Beats) from his Hard Knock Life album. The title comes from an old Playstation RPG of the same name.vagrant_story_by_auraian-d6f7zh7[1]

My favorite part of this track? The first 4 bars of the second verse. Mainly because they are lyrics I added/rewrote recently to fill out the verse. They let me know that my style and way of thinking is vastly different than when I originally wrote this song — “You can look for the answers, through the hood’s many layers, to who’s to blame for this game that turned us all into players. And you’ll find that the answers come in too many flavors. Shrug ya shoulders and move on cuz the answers can’t save us.”

Lyrics for Vagrant Story (Place Where You Die)

I pray to the lord, but I don’t follow the faith
I hate swine, I push they fuckin brains outta they face
I’m from the ville, full warfare, 11 paces
Arm ya castles, the siege take place, alert ya masons

It’s the basics, they gonna hate until you make it
We speak ghetto language, trapped in the gutter’s matrix
Corrupt bangers, beware of danger, gunslinger with the anger
You meet your makers, die over papers

Or burn in hell, rapture, my presence is felt
You talking to a legend nigga pardon yourself
I desire wealth, end your health, make you sick of the lead
No dying in bed, throw the dirt over your head

Drown in your grave, swim nigga pound against waves
Make you a slave – to the flow, follow it’s ways
Swallow the gauge, my minds a trap stuck in a maze
Track runners need to stick to they place, or stay out the race

The place where you die —
Kids run wild no tears in they eyes, no fear for they lives
They play in the dark where the sun don’t shine
A passion for crime and a lust to survive — the place where you die

The place where you die —
Kids run wild no tears in they eyes, no fear for they lives
They play in the dark where the sun don’t shine
A passion for crime and a lust to survive — the place where you die

You can look for the answer through the hood’s many layers
To who’s to blame for this game that turned us all into players
And you’ll find that the answer comes in too many flavors
Shrug ya shoulders and move on cuz the answers can’t save us

Everyday till this world is over, fuck being sober
Can’t take the pain, cock the folder, death of a soldier
I think like I’m playing poker, skin color mocha
— Top shotta, sword blade’ll poke ya

la vida loca, Y’all niggas hopeless, die over chocha
The hood is perilous said he who moves the coca
Wake from ya coma and see, there’s nothing here but vultures
Ya graduation comes with death, but there is no diploma

What’s the purpose, we live to die, gotta shake the serpent
Touch the surface, get on ya grind, gotta make it worth it
But this the place where you die, nothing’s ever perfect
The hood is like a vacuum that sucks away ya purpose It’s

The place where you die —
Kids run wild no tears in they eyes, no fear for they lives
They play in the dark where the sun don’t shine
A passion for crime and a lust to survive — the place where you die

The place where you die —
Kids run wild no tears in they eyes, no fear for they lives
They play in the dark where the sun don’t shine
A passion for crime and a lust to survive — the place where you die
