Dark Sky (Skyscrapers)

Album: Dark Sky Paradise (2015)
  • I see the skyscrapers in the back, this shit is official

    I got a lot on my mind, I got more in my face
    If I ain't going to get it, that day is going to waste
    I'm tryna move in my safe, like the safe was a safehouse
    I ain't going out to eat, but these hoes stay on the stakeout
    And you know it's official when I go bringing that Bape out
    I'm thumbing through the magazines like "this the girl I'mma take out"
    Imagine stuck in the D and you tryna find a way way out
    And yeah, your music been bumping and you just waiting to break out
    And I've been waiting all God damn year, all year
    I can tell that it's near, but near ain't here
    Man, them bills is here right now
    I guess you shine brightest when the lights down, like now
    And then they say it happened for me overnight, shit, yeah I guess
    I guess it took ten years for me to be an overnight success
    What you know about living check to check to living check to check to check to check?
    First place, no neck and neck
    Two girls is breast to breast to breast to breast
    Blowing smoke but I'm a breath of fresh air
    Yeah, saying I'm doing extra numbers like I'm Chinese
    Taking double shots like Siamese
    I'm from where crime breeds, her titties out like sign these
    I knew I lived this life back when I was young and used to climb trees
    I should've known back then I wasn't gonna stop
    'Cause even then I was infatuated with just sitting at the top
    I said I should've known back then, man, that I wasn't gonna stop
    'Cause even then I was infatuated with just sitting at the top

    And I don't owe nobody in the world no favors
    I started from the basement, made it to the skyscrapers
    I'm a successful nigga, I got shit going on
    I'm a successful Don, I got shit going on
    And I don't owe nobody in the world no favors
    I started from the basement, made it to the skyscrapers
    I'm a successful nigga, I got shit going on
    I'm a successful Don, I got shit going on

    Bitch, watch how you speak to me
    I've been working all week and I know I need ZZZZs
    Tryna get paid repeatedly
    Jamaica or Cancun, now that's where I need to be
    Credit card used to be EBT, in the D though that's D-EBT
    I be thinking about becoming a cop
    So I can murk some niggas one by one off legally
    I talk that real shit, but that's why they loving it
    One time for the city, treating it like it's the mother ship
    Was talking to my dad though on some other shit
    He like "man, slow down with the girls you're fucking with
    If they ain't a quarter back, there's no point of rushing it
    Don't make the same mistakes I made with your mother"
    But that's on some other shit, look
    I'm into risk and taking it
    I'm into making it then back then make it like I ain't made it yet
    This the rehab for a workaholic, I been thinking bout shaking it
    I done had a Rolex longer than I had relationships, I'm embarrassed to say that shit
    But I've been working on myself and that's the most important work
    Even if you don't get paid for it
    Shit, call me the greatest
    Don't call up no favours, I call up my saviour
    Like thank you God, look at all we created
    I started rapping Biggie Smalls in the basement
    And now we headed to the tallest skyscrapers Writer/s: MATTHEW SAMUELS, ROBERT HARRIS, SEAN ANDERSON
