  • Easy, back up, turn your radio
    Turn your radio off
    Watch me now, baby, baby
    Uh uh, uh uh

    Bitches in my ear, they saying they love me
    You don't love Scott, you love the Kid Cudi
    I ain't no fucking slouch, show you what I'm 'bout
    My energy is a bit too precious, too drenched in them blessings
    Transitioning to my inner, I'm hearing their voice
    Tell me stay in focus, keep focusing, boy
    Feeling like a Chilly Billy
    The man everywhere I go, in any city
    I mean, damn the girls, girls, girls galore
    I mean, damn the girls, girls, girls adore
    Mixing florescent to the core of the accoutrement
    Off the tippy titty, setting off my groupie radar
    Sipping Hen, dapping hands off the roof of my Porsche
    A fresh nigga at large, a fresh nigga go hard
    All my youngins say keep it going
    All my youngins, they dumb and repping, they always knowing

    Got some pride in your town, I'm spotting 'em lately
    Three piece suit and I'm looking so cute
    Sexy mama, send her way, you doing it hunnid
    Them hating fucks sidelining and question what you do
    Not this, my nigga, you been here
    Not this, my nigga, you ain't here
    Big boss, I made your heart heavy
    Can't stop me, can't carry me, baby

    Life ain't easy sober, we live so geeky
    Did just what you taught us, kept peace, no drama
    Phoned home to the moon, did you change your number?
    If and when you get this message, need you back home
    Big bro, big bro, big bro, big bro
    Back home
    Big bro, we need you, come home
    Back home
    Big bro, big bro, shit's fucked, come home
    Higher

    Nightmares kept a nigga from closing his lids
    Since a kid, I've been haunted by visions of death
    Such a trip, now it's normal, I customed the grip
    Think they gon' know, think the door the haunters ain't left
    Now tell me what's a young nigga to do? When the zombies are coming for you
    Load up them Daryl Dixons
    Supply the race, turn the pave, relaxing, I'm whipping
    Last week I almost weaved right off of Mulholland
    Chiefing good like I should, alone in my thoughts
    All the awesome places I've gone to and witnessed
    Is it worth the paranoia, betrayal, and loss?
    Nah nah, heroes can't simply have it all
    Sacrifice, but see heroes don't sleep, we hear the call
    My nieces know Uncle Scottie is so rock 'n' roll
    My princess Vada know rock 'n' roll daddy got the glow

    Got some pride in your town, I'm spotting 'em lately
    Three piece suit and I'm looking so cute
    Sexy mama, send her way, you doing it hunnid
    Them hating fucks sidelining and question what you do
    Not this, my nigga, you been here
    Not this, my nigga, you ain't here
    Big boss, I made your heart heavy
    Can't stop me, can't carry me, baby

    Life ain't easy sober, we live so geeky
    Did just what you taught us, kept peace, no drama
    Phoned home to the moon, did you change your number?
    If and when you get this message, need you back home
    Big bro, big bro, big bro, big bro
    Back home
    Big bro, we need you, come home
    Back home
    Big bro, big bro, shit's fucked, come home
