The Plan

Album: Tenet (2020)
Charted: 74
  • You don't know where we stand
    It's true
    Know the plan

    Last time I wrecked it, last time I whipped around
    Last time I did the whippets (yeah), last time I live reverse (yeah, yeah, ooh)
    Pour the brown, hit the reverend (yeah), last time I hit your crib (yeah)
    Last time there was no tenants
    I done went back in myself, felt like hell
    Fuck, I risked it, patience sell (yeah)
    Found you livin', know you thrillin', not for sinnin' (yeah)
    How I got my stripes in business, backin' out in the street (yeah)
    What is wild, let it be, ragers out, gotta eat (yeah)
    Not a vibe (yeah), but a wave, with the sound by the way
    Count it down, by the days (ooh)
    To myself, know they wicked, with the moves (ooh, ooh)
    I'm drinkin', off the juice, know I'm drinkin'
    I be smooth, then I lose it, yeah, yeah now

    You don't know where we stand (yeah, yeah, yeah)
    It's true (yeah, yeah)
    Know the plan

    Close the opera
    Hear the red and blue outside, I think our option's up
    I recrossed it 'round the map, I had to line it up
    I be swervin' on the waves, it's like a line of us (yeah, yeah)
    Move in 'verse on my turf, I'm outta line, I put in work
    I draw the line and cross it first
    I need the time, I need the search
    It's just like wine, it make it worse
    Skrrt, skrrt in the 'vert, skrrt, skrrt
    Ride on land, Boeing jet, make it land
    It's slow motion when I dance
    In your eyes, I see your trance
    I run away and then you prance
    If I show the hideaway, would you hide out and let it blam?
    Ain't no time, I'm facin' scams, nah, nah (yeah)

    You don't know where we stand (yeah, yeah, yeah)
    It's true (yeah, yeah)
    (Ooh)
