  • Crush a bit, little bit, roll it up, take a hit
    Feelin' lit, feelin' light, 2am summer night
    I don't care, hand on the wheel, drivin' drunk, I'm doin' my thing
    Rollin' the midwest side and out, livin' my life, getting' out dreams
    I'ma do just what I want lookin' ahead no turnin' back
    People told me slow my roll I'm screaming out, fuck that

    I'm screaming out fuck that
    I'm screaming out fuck that
    Fuck that
    Fuck that
    Fuck that
    Fuck that

    Tell me what you know about dreamin' dreamin'
    You don't really know about nothin' nothin'
    Tell me what you know about them night terrors every night
    5 am, cold sweats wakin' up, to the sky

    I'm on the pursuit of happiness and I know
    Everything that shine ain't always gonna be gold
    Hey, I'll be fine once I get it, I'll be good

    I'm on the pursuit of happiness and I know
    Everything that shine ain't always gonna be gold
    Hey, I'll be fine once I get it (get it)

    Tell me what you know about dreams, dreams
    Tell me what you know about night terrors, nothin'
    You don't really care about the trials of tomorrow
    Rather lay awake in a bed full of sorrow

    I'm on the pursuit of happiness and I know
    Everything that shine ain't always gonna be gold
    Hey, I'll be fine once I get it, I'll be good

    I'm on the pursuit of happiness and I know
    Everything that shine ain't always gonna be gold
    Hey, I'll be fine once I get it, I'll be good

    I'm on the pursuit of happiness and I know
    Everything that shine ain't always gonna be gold
    Hey, I'll be fine once I get it, I'll be good

    I'm on the pursuit of happiness and I know
    Everything that shine ain't always gonna be gold
    Hey, I'll be fine once I get it, I'll be good

    (Good)
    (It)
