  • This one's for you and me, living out our dreams
    We're all right where we should be
    With my arms out wide I open my eyes
    And now all I wanna see
    Is a sky full of lighters
    A sky full of lighters

    By the time you hear this I will have already spiraled up
    I would never do nothing to let you cowards fuck my world up
    If I was you, I would duck, or get struck like lightening,
    Fighters keep fighting, put your lighters up, point 'em' skyward uh
    Had a dream I was king, I woke up, still king
    This rap game's nipple is mine for the milking,
    Till nobody else even fucking feels me, till' it kills me
    I swear to god I'll be the fucking illest in this music
    There is or there ever will be, disagree?
    Feel free, but from now on I'm refusing to ever give up
    Only thing I ever gave up's using no more excuses
    Excuse me if my head is too big for this building
    And pardon me if I'm a cocky prick but you cocks are slick
    Poppin' shit on how you flipped ya life around, crock-o-shit
    Who you dicks try to kid, flipped dick, you did the opposite
    You stayed the same, 'cause cock backwards is still cock you pricks
    I love it when I tell 'em shove it
    Cause it wasn't that long ago when Marshall sat, luster lacked, lustered
    'Cause he couldn't cut mustard, muster up nothing
    Brain fuzzy, 'cause he's buzzin', woke up from that buzz
    Now you wonder why he does it, how he does it
    Wasn't 'cause he had buzzards circle around his head
    Waiting for him to drop dead, was it?
    Or was it, 'cause them bitches wrote him off
    Little hussy ass buzzards, fuck it, guess it doesn't matter now, does it
    What difference it make?
    What it take to get it through your thick skulls
    As if this ain't some bullshit
    People don't usually come back this way
    From a place that was dark as I was in
    Just to get to this place
    Now let these words be like a switch blade to a haters rib cage
    And let it be known from this day forward
    I wanna just say thanks 'cause your hate is what gave me the strength
    So let 'em bic's raise 'cause I came with five nine
    But I feel like I'm six eight

    This one's for you and me, living out our dreams
    We're all right where we should be
    With my arms out wide I open my eyes
    And now all I wanna see
    Is a sky full of lighters
    A sky full of lighters

    By the time you hear this I'll probably already be outtie
    I advance like going from toting iron
    To going and buying four or five of the homies the iron man Audi
    My daddy told me slow down, boy, you goin' to blow it
    And I ain't gotta stop the beat a minute
    To tell Shady I love him the same way that he did Dr.Dre on the Chronic
    Tell him how real he is or how high I am
    Or how I would kill for him for him to know it
    I cried plenty tears, my daddy got a bad back
    So it's only right that I right
    Till he can march right
    Into that post office and tell 'em to hang it up
    Now his career's Lebron's jersey in twenty years
    I'll stop when I'm at the very top
    You shitted on me on your way up
    It's 'bout to be a scary drop
    Cause what goes up must come down
    You going down on something you don't wanna see like a hairy box
    Every hour, happy hour now
    Life is wacky now
    Used to have to eat the cat to get the pussy
    Now I'm just the cats meow, ow
    Classic cow, always down for the catch weight like Pacquiao
    Y'all are doomed
    I remember when T-Pain ain't wanna work with me
    My car starts itself, parks itself and auto-tunes
    'Cause now I'm in the Aston
    I went from having my city locked up
    To getting treated like Kwame Kilpatrick
    And now I'm fantastic
    Compared to a weed high
    And y'all niggas just gossipin' like bitches on a radio and TV
    See me, we fly
    Y'all buggin' out like Wendy Williams staring at a bee-hive
    And how real is that
    I remember signing my first deal
    And now I'm the second best I can deal with that
    Now Bruno can show his ass, without the MTV awards gag

    You and I know what it's like to be kicked down
    Forced to fight, but tonight we're alright
    So hold up your light, let it shine 'cause

    This one's for you and me, living out our dreams
    We're all right where we should be
    With my arms out wide I open my eyes
    And now all I wanna see
    Is a sky full of lighters
