    21 Savage & Mariah the Scientist - dark days Lyrics

    “dark days” is the heartfelt outro of american dream where 21 Savage finally achieves his dream of attaining wealth and fame, coming to terms with his pain.

    Looking back upon his life’s defining moments, Savage advises young listeners to stay far from the street lifestyle, as he faced his darkest days pursuing that life. Complimenting Savage’s raw and introspective bars, Mariah The Scientist’s vocals provide an emotional layer to this track, harmonically summarizing experiences similar to 21.

    The spoken word send off voiced by Savage’s mother Heather Carmillia Joseph is prayer-like, commemorating him chasing his dreams, and preparing listeners for the next phase of his career.

    dark days Lyrics by 21 Savage & Mariah the Scientist

    [Verse 1: 21 Savage]
    I finally got the fame and fortune that I prayed for
    Who would have thought I would emerge from all that gun smoke?
    This for all the teenagers that wanna gun tote
    ‘Cause they cheaper in the hood than in the gun store (On God)
    You gon’ lose a lot of your friends and that’s what hurt the most
    You can’t do nothin’ but reminisce about y’all crackin’ jokes
    You feelin’ like nobody love you, I know how that go
    You gotta love yourself, lil’ nigga, that’s gon’ help you glow (On God)
    I know it might sound lame, but just stay in school (21)
    They got a place that they put people who don’t follow rules (Yeah)
    You probably got your mama scared, don’t wanna watch the news
    Ready to risk your lifе and freedom for a pair of shoes
    Yeah, you say you love your switch, but it don’t lovе you back
    You can hug that block all night, it ain’t gon’ hug you back (Facts)
    Some of your friends gon’ reincarnate and come back as rats (Pussy)
    And after your candlelight, they ain’t gon’ give your mama jack
    Now your brother kids askin’ where they daddy at
    So you gotta lie and tell ’em he just took a nap (Damn)
    You done failed in the streets, so now you tryna rap
    But that ain’t really workin’ for you, so it’s back to trap, damn

    [Chorus: Mariah the Scientist]
    When it’s all said and done
    There’s some things you can’t run from
    It’s hard to decide
    Either live or you die
    I, I ask myself was it all worth the risk
    ‘Cause I can’t pretend (Yeah)
    I can’t stand the thought of losing you

    [Verse 2: 21 Savage, Mariah the Scientist]
    I know how it feel to see your dawgs stretched out (On God)
    And watch him struggle tryna let his last breath out (Damn)
    You don’t wanna do it, but you lost some real niggas that you gotta step out
    One more seat left in the car, you gotta help out (Yeah)
    Niggas stressed out (Yeah, yeah)
    Probably why I tell the kids to put the guns down (Oh, facts)
    Gangsta, but I still cry when nobody around
    Tryna numb the pain, drinkin’ bottles ’til I drown (‘Til I drown, 21)
    Never do no suicide
    But I’d be lyin’ if I said it hadn’t crossed my mind
    I hurt on the inside and I still act like I’m fine
    Why the judge give my nigga Paul all that time? (Free Paul, hey)
    Heard they lockin’ niggas up for what they put in rhymes
    Standin’ on this shit (Oh), fuck it, I’m still writin’ mines (Fuck ’em, oh)
    This what growth look like, no more committin’ crimes (21)
    I stayed out the way and made a way for us to grind (21, 21)

    [Chorus: Mariah the Scientist]
    When it’s all said and done (All said and done)
    There’s some things you can’t run from
    It’s hard to decide
    Either live or you die (Live)
    I, I ask myself (Ask myself) was it all worth the risk (Was it all?)
    ‘Cause I can’t pretend (Yeah)
    I can’t stand the thought of losing you
    All my dawgs too
    [Bridge: Mariah the Scientist, 21 Savage]
    Forever-ever Eastside (Eastside)
    This shit ‘posed to be for life (Supposed to be for life, 4L)
    Jumpin’ shit since we was five (21, five)
    We got that fire, we was nine, nine
    Even though I’m up, up
    You can see the pain in my eyes
    I mean like fuck love (On God)
    But either way, I’m still gon’ try
    Got me fucked up (21)
    Seein’ my twin on Channel 5
    I, ’cause even gangsters cry
    I, I, I
    Gangsters cry
    Even gangsters cry
    I, I, I
    Even gangsters cry
    (I, I, I)
    21, 21

    [Outro: Heather Carmillia Joseph]
    My son, this is your time
    I know your heart
    And I’ve watched you rise above many challenges
    And you have made me so proud
    I pray for many more fulfilling experiences as you elevate to new levels of growth, purpose, and success
    Dreams really do come true
    By the grace of the source of life, so be it
