This Is Not a Game

Album: The Hunger Games: Mockingjay, Part 1 (2014)
  • There it is

    Wait! Find what you love and let it kill you
    Chop under pressure, thinkin' dammit (dammit)
    All eyes on me like a conductor (conductor)
    That mean, just play your role, you might can chime in
    Wait, shh play the game to change the game
    Word to Gucci, that's my hitta
    Your way is livin' in the moment, huh?
    My way is livin' for tomorrow

    Oh I know what I'm doin'
    Yeah I know what I'm doin'
    Say I know what I'm doin'
    I'm talkin' 'bout a revolution

    There it is (Wait) ah ahh (Nah babe)
    (Ah ahh) There it is (Wait) ah ahh (Nah babe)
    (Ah ahh) There it is

    Wait! All around the clock
    Even when I'm under fire, preach
    No never settle, I just stop 'em boy
    But I ain't down to touch, I'm just out of reach

    Oh I know what I'm doin'
    Yeah I know what I'm doin' (ah ahh)
    Say I know what I'm doin'
    I'm talkin' 'bout a revolution

    There it is (Wait) ah ahh (Nah babe)
    (Ah ahh) There it is (Wait) ah ahh (Nah babe)
    (Ah ahh) There it is (Wait) ah ahh

    No this is not a game (ah ahh) (This is not a game)
    (Ah ahh) No this is not a game (ah ahh) wait!
    No this is not a game, wait!

    Patience and determination
    Starin' at a body of it
    Starin' at a gladiator
    Victory is sweet and I'ma get it now and later

    I know what I'm doin' (Patience and determination)
    Yeah I know what I'm doin' (Starin' at a body of it)
    Say I know what I'm doin' (Starin' at a gladiator)
    Talkin' 'bout a revolution

    Now this is not a game, nah babe
    I'm talkin' turn out
    I won't ever burn out
    What I gotta make it turn out

    No this is not a game, nah babe
    I'm talkin' turn out
    I won't ever burn out
    What I gotta make it turn out, wait!

    There it is (Wait)
    (Nah babe)
