The Good Life

All I ask is for you to give me a moment

And stick with me if you’ve ever had you’re heart broken

I see so many faces I haven’t seen in a minute

It’s funny how success can effect someone’s vision

I’d be lyin’ if I said I was surprised

It would seem the people who doubted have finally arrived

Cheers. Let’s have a toast to the good life

Thought I’d seen it all but I don’t know what quittin’ looks like

We in discussions about takin’ this thing up a level

Time to bury the excuses and music is the shovel

I could complain but tell me who listen

I lost a whole ‘lotta’ friends and made enemies throughout the mission

Don’t even ask, I’m tired of hearin’ trash

Until the fumes pass, I’m keepin’ the gas mask

If you can’t respect that, don’t expect me to fall back

The certified truth through this music we call rap

 

//Till I’m stuck in a grave

You can tell her, don’t worry baby ’cause nothin’ll change

I know we haven’t really spoken, I hope you’re willin’ to stay

So we let our hands touch, like it was time to pray//

 

Yeah, and I heard ’em say

Nothin’s ever really promised tomorrow, today

So we gon’ have to hit up every mall today

Spend every little bit of cash till we pass away

I’m tryna’ leave it all behind like the pastor say

But this blood lust for drama comes naturally

Excuse me, while I undo these cuff links

And watch me go to work, made something from nothing

What more could you possibly want? Cause like a diamond from The Earth

It takes a whole lotta’ pressure and timin’ to know the worth

My first girl said, baby I really like you

My father said, son don’t let yourself be lied to

This new era is similar to the similar to the first

See if shorty feels the same when you stop fillin’ her purse

Don’t confuse love interest, with business

In memory of misses who gave us our first kisses, muah

 

//Till I’m stuck in a grave

You can tell her, don’t worry baby ’cause nothin’ll change

I know we haven’t really spoken, I hope you’re willin’ to stay

So we let our hands touch, like it was time to pray//

 

Come as you are, you ain’t leavin’ the same

We can argue semantics, but agree with the pain

They say slavery is over, but we lustin’ for chains

Whether it’s silver, or gold, really nothin’ has changed

Now the first and fifteenth are the only days that you smile

Countin’ dollars makes sense, but you haven’t dreamed in a while

I learned to do more, with a lot less

They wanna’ see me lose, they got better chances of findin’ the lochness

I learned how to take every day for what it’s worth

So I’m celebratin’ death, and mournin’ for every birth

I guess I’m more Jesse Pinkman, than Walter White

I try to leave, they pull me back, I just want some peace in my life

I take my time with every lyric

Hopin’ it’s evident, it’s more than rhymin’ when you hear it

Good night Mona Lisa

I lean away from it all like the tower of Piza

 

//Till I’m stuck in a grave

You can tell her, don’t worry baby ’cause nothin’ll change

I know we haven’t really spoken, I hope you’re willin’ to stay

So we let our hands touch, like it was time to pray//
