What's my fate Lemme take a minute to take in all of the pain If I take a second, I reckon I can relate I know how you feeling deep down, it's a shame But you know you're not the only one, cause we're the same I guess I'm insane if I don't know how to wait for the right date Put the money in the crate Every time I create a song I make it cremate Cause when I murder the beat, it's going up in the flames But I feel like I'm burning too I feel like I'm hurting with everything I do I just want some friends, I wanna join the crew But nobody seem to care when I tell em I'm new Cause I moved from a place where the sky is blue Now it's raining and I think I'm through with the people who tryna get the truth They don't know me til they under my roof I used to watch young actors make it They look so happy, and they don't fake it They talk about their parents and how they raised them But then I look at all the rappers and I face it I realize they could have been wasted If they didn't have the strength to keep racing Cause rappers come from the dirt, they hate it I guess I'm pretty good, cause I don't live in a basement And now I feel selfish, cause I'm sad I have it all, a good school, a good dad But sometimes my family makes me mad I don't know why I feel this bad I look at the pen and the pad When I write this song, I think about what I've had If I gave it up to rap with Simbi and Caz, would I be happy or would I jump the cab But it's always on to the next ting The next day, the next song I sing I don't have time to think about how my life would be if I turned out differently The whole year when I was in quarantine, DaVan was a true friend He helped me get on my feet and plant the seed Before I knew it I was recording the next week And Doug was a real one, he was testy Tryna tell me how to get better on the stream It was easy Until I realized some of my friends turned against me They were hating Cause I was playing my tracks in the West Wing They were jealous because I had a link with people like Kaleigh and KXNEKI I was doing fine until I got bullied Some people thought I was lazy Cause I didn't have a way for anyone to pay me So I got distrokid and started raving Spazzing out on the tracks on the daily I still took acting classes cause I didn't want it to feel hazy If I could rap, I could act, it was simple as that It was one step closer to maybe Fast forward to when I met Jabez Z He was doing reaction videos to music He heard my songs and he went crazy Maybe I'm not so bad after all, I think But that wasn't the problem, the problem was me I don't care about the clout, I just wanna see if the kids with fame are as accepting as the people I meet on the street Like, what if I walked down the road and a crowd passed by They wouldn't be looking at me They'd be looking at Jett Klyne And he would try to avoid the guys flashing the cameras real high I bet I could save him the trouble and take him to DBro's house And he would say, "Whoa, that's fly But I guess it'll never happen You know why Cause people don't care about my life It doesn't matter whether I'm shy or an extrovert I'll always hurt And no one can take that away, not even with words In time you'll come to learn that everybody gets some type of surge Excitement or power, we all wanna purge But I just wanna merge I guess I concur that when I die, somebody's gonna have what I earned Y'know sometimes I wanna run away Go meet my friend Gordon and tell him how I feel that day Maybe then I'll be ok But I got tears in my eyes, now I just see gray I know it's late, but I can't stop thinking about the hate The color is drained from my face I know I have a role in this place, but I can't figure it out, someone tell me What's my fate
