"Set in stone" in lyrics
The pain I’ve caused always set in stone.
The pain I’ve cause always made me whole.
The pain I’ve cause always set in stone.
The pain I’ve caused is worth it’s weight in gold.
I didn't smoke today cause everybody's on that medical
I'm on a schedule, maybe on a edible

Things that seem obvious aren't actually so simple,
And talent isn't something that's born out of nowhere—
The reason why is already set in stone.
Sweat runs from my brow into my eyes, stinging...
See if you can relish if you close both eyes
Every time I make an issue of it, someone dies
Carried out like a hit man, set in stone
Don't know why I even bother to be left alone
You were there back when I said this was a deal breaker
After today I can't say I believe in anything
What I'm saying is we're playing something set in stone
And it's burning hot, but cool to the touch if you lay it on an
