Verse One
Mister cell blocks to international flights; whoever said 'life's a bitch,' must not have treated her right. Went from day-room view to watchin' live at third baseline; where I was currently seated when I began to write! Field lights bright, sold out, seats taken; only a few blocks from OG Huskey's station! Well connected, always tryna push the message, surrounded by ambitious folks; learn to use discretion! This passport ain't gonna stamp itself and the only thing you collect is dust while sitting on that shelf! Atop that perch you've handcrafted manically; swearing you should charge more for a featuring fee! We came with nothing and we'll leave the same, so while the getting is good, may as well build acclaim! Let the people know why it is you came, so they have a reason too; to shout our names!

Chorus (X2)
Where this journey takes us we may never know, if we don't hit the road, get up and go! It's a business, combined with a lifestyle, attempting to be versatile to make it worthwhile...

Verse Two
More spoken word than cool raps to distract, while the prima-donnas cause a scene, I'm chillin' in the back! A low profile, no flashy attire. The man makes himself. Money talks but is a liar! Either invest or step aside, no time to read between the lines while forming worthy alliances. Been through the rain, setbacks and growing pains. I sprayed, I paid and never said a damn thang! Makin' amends when the time is right. Spent many nights: deep meditation, total silence. View through my third eye the world most skip, on that hunt for what most would misinterpret as Luciferian! No dogmas or Satanic worship. I only want the truth, uncut, no bullshit! From this pulpit known as a stage; I'm no better, no worse, just me...


Verse Three
Check the typeset, I'm dope, no Pyrex. Made it this far but haven't even begun yet! Here to cause an upset, no stoppin' at sunset, gettin' so lost in the moment with this digest! Feel the vocal strain, but push through it; honey, lemon, tea, before my shows I really do it! Above the influence, even if I slip and fall, made it out of jail but still behind these hard bars! Never glorify, usually omit from tracks, although facts are all that separates real from whack. So why act like no blemish exists? As if life experience had no impact while writin' this! Only reason they want these interviews is to discover inner views most never let loose! Consider this the unveiling of illusion. A forced way into the game; pardon the intrusion!
