Now that all the smoke is gone
(Lighter)
And the battle's finally won
(Gimme a lighter)
Victory (Lighters up) is finally ours
(Lighters up)
History so long so long
So long, so long

In search of victory she keeps eluding me
If only we could be together momentarily
We can make love and make history
Why won't you visit me? Until she visit me
I'll be stuck with her sister her name is defeat
She gives me agony, so much agony
She brings me so much pain so much misery
Like missing your last shot and falling to your knees
As the crowd screams for the other team
I practice so hard for this moment victory don't leave
I know what this means I'm stuck in this routine
Whole new different day same old thing
All I got is dreams nobody else can see
Nobody else believes, nobody else but me
Where are you victory? I need you desperately
Not just for the moment to make history

Now that all the smoke is gone
(Lighters)
And the battle's finally won
(Lighters)
Victory is finally ours
History (yeah) so long so long
So long so long

So now I'm flirting with death hustling like a G
While victory wasn't watching took chances repeatedly
As a teenage boy before acne before I got Proactiv I couldn't face she
I just threw on my hoodie and headed to the street
That's where I met success we'd live together shortly
Now success is like lust she's good to the touch
She's good for the moment but she's never enough
Everybody's had her she's nothing like V
But success is all I got unfortunately
But I'm burning down the block hoppin' in and out of V
But something tells me that there's much more to see
Before I get killed because I can't get robbed
So before me success and death menage
I gotta get lost I gotta find V
We gotta be together to make history

Now that all the smoke is gone
(Lighters. Up.)
And the battle's finally won
(Lighter. Up.)
Victory is finally ours
(Lighters. Up.)
History so long so long
So long so long

Now victory is mine it tastes so sweet
She's my trophy wife you're coming with me
We'll have a baby who stutters repeatedly
We'll name him History he'll repeat after me
He's my legacy son of my hard work
Future of my past he'll explain who I be
Rank me amongst the greats either 1 2 or 3
If I ain't number one then I failed you victory
Ain't in it for the fame that dies within weeks
Ain't in it for the money can't take it when you leave
I wanna be remembered long after you grieve
Long after I'm gone long after I breathe
I leave all I am in the hands of history
That's my last will and testimony
This is much more than a song it's a baby shower
I've been waiting for this hour history you ours

Now that all the smoke is gone
And the battle's finally won
Victory is finally ours
History so long, so long
So long, so long

Now that all the smoke is gone
And the battle's finally won
Victory is finally ours
History so long, so long
So long, so long
