Stop Trying to Be God

Album: Astroworld (2017)
Charted: 70 27
  • This is the real action
    The pot party, the trippers, the grasshoppers, the hip ones
    All gathered in secrecy
    And flying high as a kite

    Hmm-hmm
    Just know what this about
    Hmm-hmm-hmm
    Hmm-hmm
    Palm trees, oceans, fresh air that can break your heart

    Hmm-hmm
    Stop tryna be God
    Hmm-hmm, hmm-hm
    Hmm-hmm
    Stop tryna be God
    Hmm-hmm
    That's not who you are
    Hmm-hmm
    Stop tryna be God
    Hmm-hmm
    That's just not your job
    Hmm-hmm
    Stop tryna be God, God

    Ride for it every night
    Visions and these ankles tight
    Truth be told I never try
    Diamonds are the wife of life
    All three Rollies look alike
    After two you get a hook-up price
    Stripper never worked a nine to five
    Delta and I ship it overnight
    Stop tryna be God almighty
    Fuck the money, never leave your people behind
    It's never love, no matter what you try
    Still can see it comin' down your eyes

    'Cause they did not create commandments (ooh, ooh)
    When you hustle, always make it fancy (ooh, ooh)
    The signal's far from what you can be (ooh, ooh)
    'Cause air traffic controls the landing
    Yeah, yeah yeah yeah

    Hmm-hmm
    Stop tryna be God
    Hmm-hmm, hmm-hm
    Hmm-hmm
    Stop tryna be God
    Hmm-hmm
    That's not who you are
    Hmm-hmm
    Stop tryna be God
    Hmm-hmm
    That's just not your job
    Hmm-hmm
    Stop tryna be God, God

    Stop tryna play God almighty
    Always keep your circle tight
    I been wantin' shit my whole life
    I'm warning you, you best not try to play God tonight
    If I love her I'ma pass her on
    First rule of war, you find an act of one
    You can't win a trophy or a plaque off her
    But never turn your back on her

    'Cause they did not create commandments
    When you hustle, always make it fancy
    The signal's far from what you can be
    'Cause air traffic controls the landing
    Yeah, yeah yeah yeah

    You won't succeed tryna learn me
    Stick to the roads in my journey
    Stay out of court when you got the attorney
    She say she love 'em, want to really burn me

    Hmm-hmm
    Stop tryna be God
    Hmm-hmm, hmm-hm
    Hmm-hmm
    Stop tryna be God
    Hmm-hmm
    That's not who you are
    Hmm-hmm
    Stop tryna be God
    Hmm-hmm
    That's just not your job
    Hmm-hmm
    Stop tryna be God, God

    Is it the complex of the saint that's keepin' you so, so still?
    Is it a coat of old paint that's peelin' every day against our will?
    Is it too long since the last open conversation you had? Oh no
    And did you see the void in the past?
    And can you ever see it comin' back?
    Well can you always be a step ahead of it for me?
    Well can you always be a step ahead of it for me?

    Whoa-oh-oh
    Whoa-oh-oh
    Whoa-oh-oh
    Whoa-oh-oh
    That it? Writer/s: Jacques Webster, James Blake Litherland, Kevin Gomringer, Tim Gomringer
