[Verse 1]
Stuck in the same room
In the same mood
Everybody tried to tell me
What I can't do
Everybody tried to tell me
That I've changed too
And I changed lanes from you
Lame dudes
It's been a minute since I spilled my pain
Had to take a step back
And look at life in a different way
If you want the change
You gotta be the change
Now we're all the same
Nobody wanna take the reins
Nobody wanna push their brain
Nobody will admit that they're fake
For the facts they claim
You see we're all imperfect
In a perfect way
And while we work all day
We're all work no play
We're slaved in a loans
And the bills we pay
You consume a double cheese
When the radio play
Mainstream, Mickey D's
And my shit go-mae
I've been up for 7 days straight
Tryna figure out my fate
Tryna figure out anyway
To put food on my plate
But I sold a few tee's
So I'm eating today
Okay, doing okay
Could probly do better
Came home to a letter, eviction
I know I don't fit your description
A rapper
But me I'm a clearer
They threw all the cheddar
I know, everything the glitter ain't gold
Life is clay
You too busy to mold
Time here is takin' it's toll
We spend all our time without passion
And then we get old
Was told, I should go quit
But none of you see all the letters
I get from these kids
Who hurt from within
And don't wanna live
And tell me my music
Is all that can give them hope
Yeah, all we need it some hope
And they tell me their family's broker than broke
They usin' my music to cope
I been on that boat
Held down by a rope
Held down by a string
Ya'll lookin' for things
I'm lookin' to change the perception
Of people and all of the beautiful things that it brings
[Verse 2]
Yeah, record in my closet
Don't make enough profit
Ya'll used to have morals
And somehow you lost it
Don't care about the money
I spend on my coffin
I care bout the people attendin' in nothin'
We're lost
Lost in this world
We're selfish to think
I can find happiness in a girl
We're selfish to think we're elite
We destroy and deplete
I hope plan and no smarter than squirrels
So who wants to talk about that
Who wants to talk about facts
Maybe I'd be in your mag
If I added "tenchit ababbap"
Oh I talked about weed when I rap
But fuck all of that
The voice of the youth
The voice of the people
The real and the truth
The voice of the one
Who had nothing to lose
I speak for a heart that's been
Broken and beaten and bruised
I'm tired of holes in my shoes
Tired of having to move
Tired of coming unglued
Tired of cleaning your table
And serving your food
We are what we choose
If only you knew, the shit that I've seen
I can't tell if I'm lucid or living the dream
I don't do it for me, do it all for the team
I remember back living, when I was a teen
And my grandma she said I was worthless
And my teacher said I had no purpose
And my mama she said I was perfect
I'm sitting on Twitter
While I should be working on verses
You're worth it
And why you feel weak
The deeper the trench
The higher the peak
See ya'll are a piece of my legacy
Cause you believe we can be anything
And I wanna be me
