about

The true story of my enlistment into the Marine Corps, my dreams for the future, disregard for the rules, eventual discharge, and the avalanche of life events that took place afterwards to lead to my ultimate awakening. The flow for this song is conversational and the tone is personal and honest; I'm sharing my desires and my fears.

lyrics

Verse 1
I finally made it impatiently waiting
Eighteen’s about to be the greatest year of my life
I got no kids and wife no hating
No obligations except this signed contract on my life
I'll give em four and be gone make a love song
With my own car the GI bill and home loan
Smoking home grown when I'm at home
Never alone when smoking we stay in a zone 4
I get em open bringing the best back to base
Introduced after basic now I love the taste
Keep one rolled always take one to the face
Posters of smoking Bob and George up in my place
That's George Washington on Rushmore
Surprise inspections I'd have to flush for
Flush my blood more with teas and water before
Piss tests pissed that's just what I was caught for, I confess yes 8
Chorus
These are supposed to be
The best days of my life
It don't matter what I choose to do
I'm free and supposed to be
Make it my way in life
I won't mask no more moods for you
It seems I'm supposed to leave
We always at strife
I just clash with your rules and views
These are supposed to be
The best days of my life
The best days of my life, the best days of my life
Verse 2
A hard headed jarhead you couldn’t tell me nothing
I was taught to kill and I was always hunting
Off season or on looking for the targets
Sold weed, shoplifted, robbed the corner markets
Knocked niggs out and treated women like bitches
A cold motherfucker with a code full of glitches
This is what I can say that the Corps created
A time when many an assault were very aggravated 4
To have seen combat I would have been elated
But as chance would have good fortune I never made it
Yes I was dedicated to my God and country
Salute the flag and then get drunk in the street
I was exemplary decorated and trained well
From 500 yards with no scope send a fool to hell
That’s right or left handed but I was disbanded
And not for being a bandit but for smoking cannabis 8
Chorus
These are supposed to be
The best days of my life
It don't matter what I choose to do
I'm free and supposed to be
Make it my way in life
I won't mask no more moods for you
It seems I'm supposed to leave
We always at strife
I just clash with your rules and views
These are supposed to be
The best days of my life
The best days of my life, the best days of my life
Verse 3
I’m twenty two fresh out the service feeling worthless
Living with my aunt, no job and no purpose
I ain’t made a payment on my car in months
Yeah I know about repos but didn’t think once
That they would come for me they didn’t think twice
Struggling on job hunts on foot ain’t nothing nice
In rural Georgia ain’t for the working poor
Where sidewalks and bus schedules ain’t for sure 4
That’s for sure but still didn’t get my act together
Well on the way down the road to never
Going anywhere in life, nowhere approaching fast
No benefits from years of being treated like trash
No cash Karma’s a mean assed female dog
Down to your last and still have to hear the bark
Right before the bite pinched so many times
For possession my rap sheet would blow your fucking mind
Chorus
These are supposed to be
The best days of my life
It don't matter what I choose to do
I'm free and supposed to be
Make it my way in life
I won't mask no more moods for you
It seems I'm supposed to leave
We always at strife
I just clash with your rules and views
These are supposed to be
The best days of my life
The best days of my life, the best days of my life
Verse 4
What’s a man to do with no transferrable skills?
No ethics, desire, morals or free will
Never taught how to pay bills or live on my own
Forever royal thoughts with no respect for the throne
Thrown forward and back by the winds of change
Playing games getting caught short without change-
-ing my ways in my own way blocking the aisles
While my own future selves trying to prove their style 4
Have they passed me by seeking better days?
Are there better ways to express I’m not bitter in anyway?
I’m here to stay learned from my mistakes
And I will no longer delay in pitching my stake
Making my claim I’m here to participate
Carry my weight and help make the world a better place
Ventilate my deepest desires and darkest fears
Let the air out and hope that you hear me hope that you hear
Chorus
These are supposed to be
The best days of my life
It don't matter what I choose to do
I'm free and supposed to be
Make it my way in life
I won't mask no more moods for you
It seems I'm supposed to leave
We always at strife
I just clash with your rules and views
These are supposed to be
The best days of my life
The best days of my life, the best days of my life
