I’m the type that when things go to well for me, I get nervous.
Whenever things feel too perfect I know there’s something lurking
You can’t walk in sunny weather with umbrellas expecting rain
But you feel the need to brace yourself from incoming pain
Does it make it hurt less when whatever eventually comes?
They always say “what’s done is done” but are you cool with the outcome?
I know homies who’d rather be caught with a gun than without one
Keeping tabs on opponents because I hate feeling outdone
But you comparing people’s highlight reels to your behind the scenes
And if you’re not scared then you need to find some bigger dreams
I don’t know about you, but where I’m from? They called me King
But the perks of the crown aren’t always what they seem
Where I’m from, I’m the success story, I’m the one that made it out
When they talk about going a different path, I’m who they talk about
And I appreciate them thinking that I can show folks a different route
But truth be told, I’m looking at them like I don’t have the clout
I have so much to go do, so many things that I can be
Can’t be a deer in the headlights, I mean you never go full Bambi
They say if plan A doesn’t work get a plan B
But me? I’m such an overachiever that I already broke it down to plan Z
I am where I am, but I still feel in need of a big break
I should have been dead a while ago, just glad I didn’t get that B.I.G. break
I’m so focused. Even when I have moments where I feel hopeless
I just remember when she was my age, people didn’t feel Oprah
They even crucified Jesus, even when they knew that was so bogus
So there’s no magic potion, no wallah, no hocus pocus
To make things happen for me, good ol’ hard work is the way to go.
And I know I stay on her mind like her favorite song she hears on the radio
I know I gotta do something different if I’m not satisfied with the status quo
If you’re worried about the snakes in the grass them you better mow
Just when I think I’m done with challenges, life goes and throws some more
But it’s whatever to a boss, I’ll step in this ring and go toe to toe.
