I won't look back anymore, after this Pitch black, star bright, yeah that's my life A bit of fire and ice Watch friends, plot foes, stock ends and pot holes 'Cause when the tank hit the bank, it just got closed Don't be stank in the paint cause the yak froze Wish I knew back when I was strugglin' If I plugged in and kept bustin' I'd be buzzin', that'd make me super rich Never knew my sufferin' over but Cousin, I keep it up and gushin' And tell all of my family, aunts and uncles, cousins to do the shit Just gain power through all of the rain showers No different, remain sour cause someone else's lame hours Wish I woulda known to tell 'em all to start they own business Make long digits instead of havin' a boss who talk at the wrong pitches To fake friends, cause it's never enough At hostile situations with folks, I learned it's better to bust First, and you still a nigga no matter how much ya stuff's worth You love who love you, do hug who does true Connect the true blood to cuzz blue So keep hopin' the Lord does show up 'Cause it'll never be no peace on earth for all of us 'Till this mug blow up Locked up, I'm free still doing time I'm stuck, on notes of some of mine Incarcerated, sometimes I hate it This is the sentence of my life Ponderin' these thoughts while sittin' idle in this mezzanine Feel my feelin's boilin' up, I'm simmerin' on everything Goin' for the gold because it's shimmerin', but everything That you encounter seems to be devoured, need a better team Every thought and every dream, every plot and every scheme Lurkin' around the corner is a hater waiting like a fiend And choice of drug is negative, and they use it like a sedative Success becomes the cause of this effect, abuse the medicine You thinkin' you can let 'em in, partake in buildin' excellence The serpents come in twos and they meticulous with they meddlin' The feathers flock together, see the relationships we settle in Got consequences so it's best to let 'em go, we blessed again Disloyalty unfoiled, trynna justify they pestilence I don't understand why they so demanding manic pessimists I guess if I had to guess, I'd make an estimate, I guess that they Was just afraid so watch us levitate 'till I'm at heaven's gate Locked up, I'm free still doing time I'm stuck, on notes of some of mine Incarcerated, sometimes I hate it This is the sentence of my life Mmm, life sentence for fallin' out ya physical body Illuminate my soul, officially became godly I be the one, all of these demons runnin' from Dumped a gun, lifted spirits, niggas deem me the chosen one Phony family in my crowd, rappin' gap and loud Facin' twelve in the pen, none of them niggas made a sound None of them niggas round Now the fame close and the name boasts I'm 'posed to break bread bitch, taste toast I should smoke them ungrateful bitches They doin' the most to see what make you choke It actually leave ya throat missin' I'm on a mission to revisit kin and My prime been hidden, trynna dine with women Dipped and find this linen, try and find a business I love who love Gee, f*ck you if it's f*ck me That's just how it gotta be, cause I'm paper routin' Tame nuisance, insane view and check on my lawn Strange recruit me, guess when the god speakin' Strange Music Locked up, I'm free still doing time I'm stuck, on notes of some of mine Incarcerated, sometimes I hate it This is the sentence of my life Instead of cry, maybe I'll keep it inside
