Yeah,
I am not a pattern to be followed 
The pill that I'm on
Is a tough one to swallow 
I'm not a criminal 
Not a role model 
Not a born leader 
I'm a tough act to follow 

I am not the fortunate and the fame
Or the same verse I'm telling you to forfeit the game
I came in the ring like a dog on a chain 
And I found out the underbelly is sicker than it seems 
And it seems ugly, but it can get worse,
'Cause even the blueprint is a gift and a curse 
'Cause once you have the theory of how the thing works
 Everybody wants the next thing to be just like the first 

And I'm not a robot 
I'm not a monkey 
I will not dance even if the beat's funky  Opposite of lazy, far from a punk ya'll
Stop talking, start tryna catch up mother fucker

And all the people say
Aah, aah, aah

Tryin' to catch up mother fucker

Aah, aah, aah

 Lauren said money changes situations 
Big said it increases the complication 
Kane said don't stab, I ain't the one
 Chuck said that an Uzi weigh a mother fucking ton
And I'm just a student of the game that they taught me
 Rocking every stage and every place that they brought me
I'm awfully underrated
But can be corrected 

And so this second I'm gonna save it for the record 
I am the opposite of whack  Opposite of weak
 Opposite of slack  Standing in the heat
 Standing in a crack  Closest to a beat, far from a punk
Ya'll outta stop talking, start tryna catch up mother fucker
And all the people say
Aah, aah, aah

 Trying to catch up mother fucker

Aah, aah, aah

Oh when they come for me
Come for me
I'll be gone

Oh when they come for me
Come for me
I'll be gone

Oh when they come for me
Come for me
I'll be gone

And all the people say
Aah, aah, aah

 Trying to catch up mother fucker

Aah, aah, aah

And all the people say
Aah, aah, aah

 Trying to catch up mother fucker

Aah, aah, aah
Aah, aah, aah
Aah, aah, aah
