Sometimes you gotta take an L, but you grow from it
They thought they had my case closed but I made them reopen it
You know me? I’m gonna go get it, even if progress is slow with it
I been doubted since way back when Twista made Po’ Pimpin
Stay low and build time, your halftime is my chill time
I speak the truth in all my words, yet you think these ain’t real lines
They don’t see the signs, they just see the lies
They see the highlight reel but they don’t see the life
They don’t see the hard work and effort they just see results and then question.
Sleeping with one eye open just so I don’t miss my blessing
All these people that I’m dealing with, I don’t like mess in my orbit
People try to give me their stress and like a fool I absorb it
I got someone’s homegirl singing my praise like a chorus
People only give you flowers when you dead & I’m not tryna meet a florist
Watch them assassinate my character, just to say that they stayed down
What’s the point in staying down if you try and make everyone stay down?
You damn clown, sometimes the voices in my head are the only sounds
I care to hear and sometimes a person is only lost if they care to be found
Maybe I’m pushing through when I don’t need to push through
Don’t you get tired of convincing people that they need you?
People get a connation when they hear you’re a good dude
Like it’s ok to forget that I have needs to
The sex is good but sometimes the person isn’t
Sometimes you don’t get an explanation on why they did it
Sometimes you want it to work and it just can’t
Sometimes your secret admirers just work better as fans
Sometimes we just might work better as friends
Sometimes if you take the sex away, we were never friends
It’s possible to be both cocky and self-conscious
It’s possible to be both a masterpiece and a work in progress
The process? It’s ugly, not many people want to watch it
But it can get even uglier if you botch it.
No one wants to invest in you but everyone wants a profit
But in order to see the dividends, you must first make a deposit.
