  • I am known to stay awake
    (A beautiful world I'm trying to find)
    A beautiful world I'm trying to find
    (A beautiful world, I'm trying to find)
    I've been in search of myself
    (A beautiful world) a beautiful world
    It's just too hard for me to find
    (Dreams, dreams)
    Said it's just too hard for me to find
    (Dreams, dreams)
    I am in the search of something new
    (A beautiful world I'm trying to find)
    Searchin' me
    Searching inside of you
    And that's fo' real
    What if it were no niggas
    Only master teachers?
    I stay woke (Dreams dreams)

    Pretty rings and pretty thieves
    With shiny lights and little
