Man I swear this shit was yesterday dawg
Maybe every day is the same day dawg
Lyrical blissfulness on the pad when I write
And when I write the paper sets alight
Bright lights in the city of heights
Everything’s going right
Or left depending on where you’re going

I’m going up from here, shifting the car into second gear
Grab the clutch man I’m going up
120 on the road man I’m speeding up
Steering this verse man I’m driving it
It’s lit when you got a flow that everyone wants to get, wants to get

Now cop those new designer shoes
And fall for the slewed consumer views
That news is nothing new
It’s subdued by our desire to buy something brand-new
That shit is not the new cool.
Yesterday is over
I miss it even less than that time I missed the bus and had to walk my ass to class
I was stupid
Yeh I was late
Like what’s the point of getting up if all I’m getting is a grade
Attention caused
No attention paid
Lazier than ever
Want to make a check so I can make it through the weather
Started working more
But working more ain’t always better
Hustle 60 hour weeks and you should check my blood pressure bitch

Guess I should take a pill
Yeh I wish was a freezer I could adjust it back and chill
Hate the way it feels when I’m thinking about the past
Questions never asked, seamed together like it’s masked
I got voices in my head
though most of them are dead
Haunt me like some ghosts for all the things I never said
And when I go to bed
They always visit in my dreams
Tell me I should listen that there’s wisdom in my genes like
