Lyrics for "Not Where I Belong" by Mission Man

I moved here when I was 5
And left when I was 13
I spent two years in a different scene
In those two years I learned how to rap
It's changed from a dream into a nap
That period is just a flash in my mind
Like a VHS tape that's hard to rewind
The picture's kind of fuzzy and full of grain
Very unclear as I play it in my brain
I used to think Orlando was my home
And I'm still happy there when I get to roam
But it's
chorus: Not Where I Belong X4
So it's time to move back to Ohio
Forced by cancer out of Orlando
I spent a few years just trying to live
Trying to find a reason for life and a reason to give
On a good day I was running on fumes
Living my life under the listlessness that loomed
I still look back and see new things all the time
I'm surprised that I didn't commit crimes
Thank god for expression through my rhymes
They were the best therapy for my mind
Now sometimes I wonder if they impede my freedom
I can sometimes see a time when they might be done
Which is part of the reason why
I feel like I am
Chorus:
I went to Orlando a second time
Left on my own terms to ease my mind
So I could understand clearly what I'd find
I overcame my obstacles by returning to college
Learning hard to increase my knowledge
My life since then has been an oddity
Sitting in the dock when I should be on an odyssey
That's why I feel like I'm
That's why I feel like I'm
Chorus:
I wake up some mornings and wonder
Did I get here by choice or was it blunder
This stagnance sometimes steals my thunder
And makes me curious as to if I'm going under
I can't see from the point of view I need
Is my heart beating enough for me to bleed
Sometimes it is but not often enough
Right now I'm still severely lacking love
Home is where the heart is and my chest feels hollow
I want to understand where I need to be tomorrow
My time and my life feels borrowed
And I need to get rid of the sorrow
Because I'm
Chorus:
ending:
