  • Yeah, I can't get no better, can't get no more cheddar
    I feel like a king and my queen is Coretta
    I been made a livin', I'm never gon' give in
    I'm just way too driven, that's why I been thinkin'
    I'm scared that I'm sinkin', I'm scared that I'm fallin'
    The world think I'm ballin' and maybe I am
    But don't give a damn, back in the beginnin'
    Did not have a plan, don't know who I am
    Or who I'm becomin' but I'ma do me to the fullest, alright
    Bustin' and dodgin' them bullets all night
    Take over the world, yeah I'm thinkin' I might
    Got 'em all in my sight
    I know that I'm strong, I know that I am
    I know I'm the man and whether you poor or you filled with financial security
    Everyone deal with they own insecurity
    Even the preacher was born with impurity
    Scared to go out even with my security
    Scared of the world and all of its obscurity
    Pray for maturity, hope that I grow
    Hope my anxiety stay on the low
    I swear I hope that shit don't fuck up my flow
    Where do I go? What would you do
    If suddenly all of your dreams came true?
    What would you do if you did it all? (If you did it all)
    If you ain't never have to lift a finger
    Would you linger like, "Fuck 'em all"?
    Guess it's your call, but I can't (It's your call, but I can't)
    This a marathon, not a sprint
    Switch up the plan like homie that went from Verizon to Sprint
    Can you hear me now? Does anybody out there feel me now?

    What's your name? What's your game?
    Come now boy, just spit your flow
    Feel the pain with the game, what you tryna say though?
    Novocaine to the brain, I can't feel nothing no more
    In my lane, can't refrain from lettin' these people know
    What's your name? What's your game?
    Come now boy, just spit your flow
    Feel the pain with the game, what you tryna say though?
    Novocaine to the brain, I can't feel nothing no more
    In my lane, can't refrain from lettin' these people know

    How I feel (How I feel), yeah that's how I feel (That's how I feel)
    Break it down, roll it up, that's how high I feel (That's how high I feel)
    How I feel (How I feel), how high I feel (How high I feel)
    Down, roll it up, yeah

    Searchin' for bliss only led me to searchin' for hits
    Only led me to battle depression
    I done learned my lesson 'cause fame never lessen the pain
    What if your life was under a glass?
    And people tried to dig up shit from your past
    And tell you what's good and what's not
    And every time you drop a song, they say that it's wack or it's hot
    And don't give a damn that it came from the heart
    They tear it apart like hyenas that's here for the dreamers
    That's here for the people that know what I'm sayin'
    All of you people that know what I'm sayin'
    Fuck social media
    Tellin' me who I should be and just how I should rap
    They always compare, they always compare me to others
    And try to pit me up against all my brothers
    Now why you think so many rappers be overdosin' at the crib?
    (Overdosin' at the crib)
    'Cause people just won't let 'em live
    And the public is constantly thinkin' they know 'em
    But nobody knowin' what's goin' on inside (On inside)
    And they wonder why we all hide, shit (Why we all hide, shit)
    Maybe I'm just overthinkin'
    Or maybe I'm just over smokin' and drinkin'
    And when I can't deal with the hate, I self-medicate
    Sit in the corner and think of a better day
    Maybe this bullet can help me to get away
    I just cannot seem to think of a better way
    Even though I know there is, that's why I keep goin'
    That's why I keep flowin', that's why I keep perserverin'
    Even when I'm hearing I'm a bitch, I'm a fag
    I'm a motherfuckin' hypebeast, I ain't black in the slight least
    I ain't good enough, I should quit, I should kill myself (Kill myself)
    "'Cause you'll never be Kenny"
    "You'll never be better than Drizzy or Cole"
    "You're losing your hair, you're too fucking old," yeah
    These are the comments I'm readin' on Twitter right now
    That made me depressed and they pullin' me down
    I'm trying to swim but I think I'ma drown
    So I'ma turn my feelin' into a sound
    And play it when nobody else is around
    Whenever I feel like I'm far from the ground
    God give me the power to battle depression, yeah, round after round
    I wish I was famous, I wish I was rich
    I wish I could just get up out of this bitch (Out of this bitch)
    But be careful what you wish for (What you wish for)
    'Cause it ain't everything that it's cut out to be
    My life is good but not as good as it's boutta be
    'Cause I got vision, don't fuck with division
    It got what I'm bridgin', and I think that I am
    Do what you love and do not give a damn
    Fuck all the haters you see on the 'Gram
    Just mind your own business and be a good man
    Be a good boss and be a good friend
    Spread your imaginations to the millions
    Don't worry about how to maintain all your millions
    Just spread that positivity for the children
    And all the haters that's hatin', just love 'em
    'Cause that's the only way you ever gon' kill 'em
    Know some of you feelin' (Know some of you feelin')
    Last but not least, put your ego on the shelf
    And remember, love yourself (Love yourself)

    Oh nah, nah (Oh, nah, nah)
    Put your ego on the shelf and love yourself (Love yourself)
    Nah, nah, nah (Nah, nah, nah)
    Put your ego on the shelf, and remember, love your-
    'Member, love yourself

    Oh nah, nah
    Put your ego on the shelf and love yourself
    Nah, nah, nah Writer/s: Arjun Ivatury, Matthew Crabtree, Robert Bryson Hall
