To be honest, right now it feels like I’m at a crossroads
The old me would have given them all a piece of my soul
The new me keeps it all together, silent forever
They say Diddy you ain’t built for that, never say never.
Y’all make mountains out of molehills but yet y’all “so real”
Y’all missing the mark like Free Throws from Mr. O’Neal
They say if you get bruised up that time heals
What happened if the culprit was someone in a pair of fine heels?
You keep the healing to yourself, the world don’t care
But when you’re on top of the world then they were “always there”
I ain’t naïve enough to ever think things are always fair
I don’t need to be humble, I just need to be self-aware
Got to be mindful of spreading myself too thin
Blocking out the negative things but I got tough skin
Young black man coming live from the north end
It’s been a crazy ride, at least my seat belt is fastened.
You better thank the Lord I’m strapping in, the old me ain’t back again
I prefer new money way more than I prefer new friends
My bank account ain’t where I want it, but I mean it’s straight
It’s big enough that people keep begging me to donate
Not just my money but my time like I don’t know what I’m worth
Not knowing how much a dollar costs? That shit is the worst
I’m blessed man, starting realizing that as a freshman
So about 6 years ago, made it through all the interventions
And they think they can make another me like I’m just an invention
I have become more judicial in who I give my attention
All these dudes do is whine like they’re born in the Napa Valley
I haven’t bowled in a while, guess complaining is more up your alley
I might take your woman crush Wednesday, show her downtown Cincinnati
Have her looking Squidward discovering the Krabby Patty
The backroom deals, just know that my God is real.
The devil wears Prada and she’s over 6 feet tall in heels
I remember when I used to want people to love me still.
Now I’m trying to think of the quickest way to earn these mills
Because my family got to eat and I don’t want them to miss a meal
That’s why I had to graduate to coach of the playing field.
