Figure It Out

Album: Wave Gods (2016)
  • No matter how many times I've tried to you
    I can't lie to you, I can't lie to you
    I never lied to you I can't
    Can't lie y'all, he disrespected y'all
    No matter how times I've tried to you
    I can't lie to you, I can't lie to you, I can't

    Uh, just like a nigga, go figure
    Some shit they said they might never figure
    Mo' figures, more hating ass niggas
    Mo' commas, more hating ass problems

    No matter how much I've tried
    No matter how much I try
    Can't lie to you, I can't lie to you, uh
    No matter how many times I've
    No matter how many rhymes I've
    I got it all in my mind
    I got it all in my mind, and
    I can't lie to you
    (No matter how many times I've tried)
    I can't, I can't lie to you
    I can't, I can't lie to you

    Coming from the back block, posted like a backdrop
    Rags to the riches, got rich and bought the rack top
    Lot of homies died here, look at what the grind did
    Put me in the same shoes, still do what Shyne did
    More bitches, more bitches, more riches
    They don't want no broke niggas
    But don't call them gold diggers
    I don't know, I don't know, why I ain't get the picture?
    Why Cosby slipped her?
    Why I fucked 'em both when they said they sisters?
    Why Eazy ain't have the Magic?
    Why AI never won a 'ship?
    And why God took Max and Chinx
    And he ain't take me when I got hit?

    No matter how much I've tried
    No matter how much I try
    Can't lie to you, I can't lie to you, uh
    No matter how many times I've
    No matter how many rhymes I've
    I got it all in my mind
    I got it all in my mind, and
    I can't lie to you
    (No matter how many times I've tried)
    I can't, I can't lie to you
    I can't, I can't lie to you

    Beyond Pérignon, the fame, the money
    The Baccarat crystal that's hanging from the ceilings above me
    Hearing people whisper, screaming I'm lucky but trust me
    Nothing come free, shawty tried to keep my son from me
    Or I could be delirious to take life serious
    Remain single forever, can't wife nothing, period
    I'm a G, I need privacy, media's never kind to me
    Niggas beefing on small time things, we on a dying spree
    He disrespected y'all
    Just like a nigga, go figure
    He talking reckless, yo
    I can't accept it, yo
    No matter how much I've tried
    For the love of my people, I guess I'll let it go
    I can't figure it out

    No matter how much I try
    Can't lie to you, I can't lie to you, uh
    No matter how many times I've
    No matter how many rhymes I've
    I got it all in my mind
    I got it all in my mind, and
    I can't lie to you
    (No matter how many times I've tried)
    I can't, I can't lie to you
    I can't, I can't lie to you Writer/s: Karim Kharbouch, Nasir Jones, Kanye Omari West
