  • Yo, yo (check our situation)
    Yo, my men and my women
    (Yo) Yo, yo (check our situation)
    My men and my wom-

    You need somethin' unexpected, some form of weapon
    You ask him to feel protected, and still feel protected
    Just one time for the record, just one time for the record
    Don't agree with the message, don't agree with the methods

    Don't let, don't let the lifestyle drag you down
    Who knows when was the last time you felt the love
    One last sparkle to follow in my light
    One last sparkle to follow

    Man, it's too early
    What the hell you doin' wakin' me up at 5:30?
    Why the hell are you worried?
    Play somethin' that is very, very vibe-worthy
    I don't want my mind alerting
    People sayin' tweetin' gonna make you die early
    How 'bout have my heart hurtin'?
    Hold it all inside, that could make you die early
    Go on and get your best attorney
    Something's there, feel it when I heard it
    Just release the spirit, let it flow though
    How these n- leaving now with one leg like Flo-Jo?
    Nail me to the cross with long nails, like Coco
    Free Throat Coat for the throat goats
    Even if I gotta do it solo, even if I gotta do it with no promo
    I ain't got my point across
    'Til we finally get the cross and pass the point
    So there's a couple things that I gotta quote
    Don't involve yourself in things you don't have to know
    I ain't never question what you was askin' for
    I gave you every single thing you was askin' for
    I don't understand how anybody could ask for more
    Got a list of even more, I just laugh it off
    I be goin' through things I had to wrote
    Celebrity drama that only Brad'll know
    Too many family secrets, somebody passin' notes
    Things I cried about, I found laughable
    Lil' baby Jesus, ain't laughin', no
    Don't involve yourself in things they ain't have to know
    The big man upstairs ain't laughin', no
    Don't involve yourself in things they ain't have to know

    Now here we are
    You know I'm not about it
    Showed you my all
    I let you into my thoughts

    Don't let, don't let the lifestyle drag you down
    Who knows when was the last time you felt the love
    One last sparkle to follow in my light
    One last sparkle to follow in love
    One last sparkle to follow in my light
    One last sparkle to follow

    "Okay, I didn't throw a fit when you said you wanted to leave
    I told you I loved you, but you didn't believe
    You were too easily fooled, so easily deceived
    By some dude who's more rather into greed
    Played by your emotions, you were swamped by your needs
    Told me, I didn't believe, you said I was out to deceive, ahaha
    You said that I lie, how did I? I told you everything, didn't I?
    But you just could not believe, man, I'm so peeved
    Your friends all up in your head even when we're in bed
    Your mind's elsewhere, and you say you care? Haha
    I'm laughin' at you all, you think you got me? No, no
    My back ain't against the wall" (the wall, the wall, the wall, the wall)

    Don't let, don't let the lifestyle drag you down
    Who knows when was the last time you felt the love
    One last sparkle to follow in my light (right on)
    One last sparkle to follow Writer/s: Adam Wright, Anthony Markeith Reid, Billy Walsh, Cristi Gallo, Cydel Charles Young, Dwayne A. Abernathy, Isaac De Boni, Jahmal Gwin, Kanye Omari West, Lauryn N. Hill, Malik Yusef, Mark Carl Stolinski Williams, Mark Myrie, Michael Mule, Raul Cubina
