All praises to the people that will check up on you.
Believe in you enough to even put a check up on you
Lifestyle of the young and unbelievable.
Even after all of this man, they’re still needing you
It’s hard to believe, after all the hate I’ve received
That any person would admit they needed me
Seeing the world through a keyhole, finding myself, no Nemo
But they’re thinking I’m mentally sick, no Chemo.
So I put my ego in check and put my pride aside.
To become one of those people that you idolized.
This is real life, a lot ain’t romanticized
What’s been going on with me? A little too much to summarize
People don’t ask out of concern, they ask to be nosy
Change happens outside your comfort zone, can’t afford to be cozy
Looking through the haystacks, trying to find the needles.
Looking through the bad, trying to find the good people
Used to be looking in the mirror, focused on my weakness
The road to greatness, who knew it’d be this scenic
Crave a lot of things, they say success and affection are the sweetest
Call me a hybrid but with way more power than a Prius
You often are way more powerful than you even know
I ain’t here to sell lies, you don’t have to believe these quotes
Drowning in my self doubt, friends came around with their boats
I ain’t got to walk on water, I just have to make sure I float
And avoid hypothermia, they say it’s known to set in quick
When your self-esteem goes overboard, you call the cavalry to rescue it
Niggas wanting championship rings but they scared to commit
Like Kyrie Irving with the crossover, they not equipped to handle it
Breaking ankles and egos, they look at me like a hero
If I let them in the phone booth, they might feel like I’m a zero
I have to make this look effortless, at least that’s the plan
Because there’s no magic in the effort, it’s all in the sleight of hand.
