lyrics

Looking out a window from the inside

Of my head what I had in mind

Is it recess or recession

bit worried, cause I ain't stressing

One side saying we gone hit an incline

One side saying we are in the end time

In the middle of the match where I been fine

I ain't confined, I was left in

If it's out of my control I ain't stressing

Only cutting from the cloth I was dressed in

Well groomed in a room full of best men

Grey suits tryna train me not to question

On average I'm the exception

Run the math when it's anything less than

If the path get blocked even one time

No conspiracy can tell me what it meant then

So what's next then

I'ma keeping it moving I got no choice

Representing for the weak of us with no voice

Rich enough to be protected from who's elected

Black enough to be respected but still messed with

Pulled over in a Buick or a Rolls Royce

5'9" or 6´3" they gone feel threatened

Your fragility is hidden under your weapon

You ain't hard, you just capping 'cuz you so moist

More than one thing tryna kill me (YEAH)

More than one name tryna bill me (YEAH)

Keep my hands clean

Less we're talking 'bout riches

That's the only thing that's filthy (YEAH)

Nothing left in this life left untainted

Up charge for the pure so we cut raw

Here's an app and some people you can complain with

Rest assure

I'm the pro's, I'm the con's

I'm the hope and the harm

I'm relief or belief

Here to leave you in a storm

Throw a raft, throw a leash

What you need is what you form

Round your neck, on your arm

Just keep calm

Rest assure it's the cure

Everybody got a way of coping

Talk about it, have a sip, smoke it

You can tell it's serious when I be down playing

Most scared when I be joking

Looking for a fix and I'm hoping

Both knees on the ground praying

Would I even hear it when spoken

Fear more familiar than faith is

I'ma stop looking for an answer

Search inside how to make it

Media delivering a breakdown

When it break down I can take it

Tell me something that I want to hear

Like hearing you found a new replacement

Babylon lying off top

Ima take it back to the basement

I could lose it all found laying in a gutter

Get it all back that's word to my mother

Comfy in the county where it's really all black

Chilly in the city where it's getting off color

Never made it rain I could save a long rack

On a rainy day I know how to take cover

Let it all flood i'ma swim it on back

I ain't made of iron, I'm just braver than the others

Life don't love you but it love to come test

But if you love life you can't get the wrong number

If you go under learn to take a long breath

Wait it on out, come back with a flex

Looking for a hand all I ever got was steps

Walked on once now I walk on quest

I could walk on water, I could on set

My drip game only thing wet

I'm the pro's, I'm the con's

I'm the hope and the harm

I'm relief or belief

Here to leave you in a storm

Throw a raft, throw a leash

What you need is what you form

Round your neck, on your arm

Just keep calm

Rest assure it's the cure
