Red to Black Lyrics

Artist: Fort Minor
Album: The Rising Tied

I had a friend named Victor
The two of us used to hang every single day
And it seemed like overnight that his whole life just changed
I know when his mom and dad broke up
It didnt make sense but I know that his dad was a drunk
And he gambled away the rent
Pretty soon vic was seein red
Pissed off but instead
He'd drink every night til he passed out
Then he'd do it all again
The whole time smiling on the outside to cover the pain
But on the inside all he was tryin to do was get away

He's dying to get away
Let the pain of yesterday go slipping through the cracks

Yo, Funny how things change color
Then fade to another shade
When you had it made it was all good
But now look just another day
It was so fresh it was so clean
Now its all gone
1, 2, 3, lights out
Which way to turn
Can't get a grip
All alone in the big white house
Everyday gets worse and you just curse
'til your head bursts and it hurts so bad
She left like yourself should have thought of that one first
No family, no kids, can't accept what you did
Now you wanna runaway but you can't cuz the past comes back again

Slippin through the cracks
Sip a little jack
Go to bed half dead
What about rent
Why does every cent gotta be a bet
Whens it gonna end
Oh my god, we dont got a penny left My mom's gotta find a way to get a job
Outta debt, outta dodge, outta breath, outta this big problem
My pops wanna get away from the pain
In a better place in his brain
But the medication he takes makes him wasted
So sick he was gonna think the good lord would come take him
Im shakin him wake up you son of a bitch

He's dying to get away
Let the pain of yesterday go slipping through the cracks
Hiding himself away watching all the memories fade
Away From red to black

He's dying to get away
Let the pain of yesterday go slipping through the cracks
Hiding himself away watching all the memories fade
Away From red to black

(Slipping through the Cracks)
