About to change the game
 DJ Khaled!
We the best forever 
Cash Money, Young Money
I'm for real about this shit
Let's go

[Chorus]
I'm countin' my time, cause my time is my money 
The sun goes down but I won't stop for nothing 
I close my eyes, I'd rather sleep when I'm gone
 Sleep when I'm gone
 Sleep when I'm gone (Gone)
I'm lookin' at the clock like yay yay
Maps to my treasure, yay ay
(Time's on the side, whoa)
I close my eyes, I'd rather sleep when I'm gone
 Sleep when I'm gone
 Sleep when I'm gone

They say sleep is the cousin of death, guess we related  Cause I'm the most slept on, and the most hated  Hated by niggas with no hustle 
Starin' at me in the club like I won't bust you
In the face with the spades, life is a card game
And I'm playin' spades, gamblin' with y'all change 
Fuckin' basketball wives, while you at away games  Really fuckin' basketball wives, ain't gotta say names  Whole body tattered like a New York City freight train
 Niggas get to barkin', put a bullet in the great Dane
Try me, end up like Rolly 
Team full of animals, like I coach the heat
Four floor mansion, close to the beach 
Six car garage, this how I'm supposed to eat
In Miami, rolling up kush on boat decks 
Flaggin' down the waitress, wavin' my Rolex 

[Chorus]

Yo, I don't survive the test of time doin' this shit so long
And only rest to rise again homie, I sleep when I'm gone
Look, a legend while I'm prime, and so current and they hate this
The streets classified me as another level of greatness 
I don't fight for crowns at all, I let whack niggas bitch 
And let 'em flip while they debate on who the king of this shit
Listen, see I don't waste time debatin' over those things
 Because I'm God motherfucker, God create kings
 Watch it, I'm hearin' that a lot of niggas mad through the grapevine 
The piano soundin' beautiful and sad at the same time
The feelin' of a funeral, so study you niggas 
Khaled, provide the theme music while I bury you niggas 
Now there's no escaping the God, you better find a get away
'Fore I start wiling like Haitians and Jamaicans when it's Labor Day
Khaled, every time you know we gotta make 'em love it
And realize every thing is hotter when we touch it

[Chorus]

Ayo Khaled, let this shit breeze 

Poor lil' rich nigga, that's me
 Smoke comin' out the sunroof, blowin' on hasheesh 
Can't stop now, cause I'm in too deep
One point five wide, every two weeks  Niggas wanna kill me, let the shells fall out
Life insurance in place, my kids gon' ball out
They kids gon' ball out, twenty years from now, pullin' cars out
You gon' think cocaine gettin' hauled out
Ass gettin' chipped in, crystal meth gettin' dipped in
All cause you let a nigga slip in
Aftermath, "0" five, G-Unit, "0" six
 Everything else is gymnastics, watch the dough flip
Sittin' on the couch, smokin' up memories 
Pourin' Jack Daniels, toast to my enemies 
Fuck beef, nigga I ain't got the energy 
Take the last shot to the dome, John Kennedy 

[Chorus]
