I was told it’s better to ask for forgiveness and not permission
I was told that even when I didn’t have a pot to piss in
Now I look like I’m worth the ticket price for admission
Now I just need to have all of my plans come to fruition
This is food for thought, consider this mental nutrition
I can make inner demons disappear like you’re favorite magician
Broken on the inside but outside? I look like I’m in mint condition
I’m just a mixture of attrition and ambition
I hear your inquisition, I’m focused on acquisition
My future couldn’t be brighter if I dated an electrician
Maybe if I bagged Oprah that would be an addition
Haters keep trying to go back and forth with me like badminton
Or tennis and I ain’t Serena Williams
They’re just looking for somebody that can give them that missing feeling
I didn’t play the cards I was dealt, I made the dealer keep dealing
I been wounded before but I made myself keep healing
Bunch of awkward text exchanges, constantly third wheeling
Going from head over heels to suddenly not speaking.
Is it disrespectful to Stevie wonder when we say seeing is believing?
We live by faith, not by sight so is asking for a peek kinda cheating?
These are the questions that I ponder and reflect on
I told you, this was food for thought & this is a sit down restaurant
Do what you do, don’t just do it for the response
Because this world is colder than a winter spent in Vermont
Figuring out the different between confident and headstrong
Success is the goal and I’m headed for the pylon
Stole that line from Wayne. Giving credit needs a renaissance
My life moving crazy, it feels like a sprint and not a marathon
I’m left handed, so I was born doing this unorthodox
So I might not keep my heart protected like it was Fort Knox
I might not consider how some of my things come across
But just know, I take everything seriously, this ain’t lacrosse
No disrespect to all the people that’s played it
But there’s a difference between being gold and just gold plated.
I ain’t make it. I’m still on the progress to better process
I just need the blueprint to get over all this nonsense.
