  • Tell me how you feel
    I feel like the grass is green
    And everything I do is unseen
    But I know that's just in my mind
    I know everything is just in my mind
    Do you really wanna to be famous?
    Do you really wanna be a superstar?
    Do you really wanna get dangerous?
    Do you even know where the groupies are?
    Bitches out here be shameless
    And I really wonder where they parents are
    Look around, everything changes
    It feels like I've been buried alive

    Everything happens for a reason
    People only in your life for seasons
    Word to Aunt Viv
    Death and taxes that's all we given
    You can make a life but can't make a livin'
    You can make it work but that still ain't driven
    Give a lot but that still ain't givin
    Livin' life like this ain't real though
    Every night like this I feel so
    Dead wrong, collision is head on
    My vision is dead and gone
    Perception of right and wrong
    I been here so very long
    Right here in this very song
    Look around everything changes
    Seem like everybody just strangers
    Don't go outside cause it's dangerous
    Why everybody wanna be famous
    I'm so OCD if they notice me
    I might jump out the grave so they know it's me
    Man everybody want this shit for free
    Hand out palm up when they get to me
    In my mind no I never let it get to me
    Everybody got a turn will it get to me
    V's up motherfucka that's victory
    Tell me why what I'm doing ain't shit to me, damn

    Buried alive, buried alive
    Will I survive?
    Buried alive
    I gotta know
    I gotta know
    It feels like i've been buried alive
    Buried alive

    Tell me how you feel
    I feel like the grass is green
    And everything I do is unseen
    But I know that's just in my mind
    I know everything is just in my mind
    Do you really wanna to be famous?
    Do you really wanna be a superstar?
    Do you really wanna get dangerous?
    Do you even know where the groupies are?
    Bitches out here be shameless
    And I really wonder where they parents are
    Look around, everything changes
    It feels like I've been buried alive

    Let it breathe
    I'm feelin' this villainous feelin inside of my mind
    Every time that I'm willing I feel like I'm killin' my dreams
    When that voice goes nah, nah, nah
    Listen up now
    Love it or hate it, never debate it, you can never degrade it
    While all these other motherfuckers probably thinking
    I made it
    My mind jaded no I never evade it
    I elevate it just to keep it innovative (innovative)
    God damn, bring it back now
    Blowin' up like Iraq now
    RattPack put me on the map now
    No we never back down
    Just take my time, I just take my time
    I know, Imma get it like this
    So everyone know that I did it like this
    Yeah, I know
    Imma take my time
    Battle the image inside of my mind
    I know, Imma keep going
    Tell me I can't but I'm already knowing
    I know, I'm gonna rise
    Even though I've been buried alive
    Buried alive, will I survive?
    I gotta know
    I gotta know
    It feels like I've been buried alive
    Buried alive

    Tell me how you feel
    I feel like the grass is green
    And everything I do is unseen
    But I know that's just in my mind
    I know everything is just in my mind
    Let it breathe Writer/s: DAVID CUNNINGHAM, ROBERT HALL
