lyrics

[Intro Fade In]

Watch the world fade to black
as my eyelids are closing
I'm laying on my back

[Verse 1]

Uh
There comes a time and a place for success
The time is now the place is more than likely in my chest
Excuse my arrogance confident to say that I'm the best
It's open ended hope you ready to go take the test
It's called life, you could choose to back out
That's why I write and I'm calling this blackout
I fade away to the sounds of 808s
As I feel the room shake I awake to a mad house
So I rather close my eyes, sit there vibe
Now you understand why I take my time with every rhyme
I color in the pictures while y'all getting outta line
I'm tired of seeing flickers pull me over to the side
But I don't hit pause, I let it all play out
Right before it pops don't forget to take your tape out
I treat life like my Michael Jackson Thriller album
I play it all again cuz I know the outcome

[Hook]

Watch the world fade to black
as my eyelids are closing
I'm laying on my back
But it feels like I'm floating
Watch the world fade to black
as my eyelids are closing
I'm laying on my back
But it feels like I'm

[Verse 2]

Friends become foes your force to stand on your toes
Your family will abandon thee something that you should know
Your born alone die alone that's how the story goes
That's why I stay on the microphone rockin until I'm old
I'm just, saying what I feel at this moment
Adjust, to the music when it's real and it's potent
A must, is when I write surpassing the fabrication
Go hard with determination till the end of regulation
Cuz this game takes lives, when I think about it
Something's funky and I try to put my stink around it
Like broken vertebrae it's hard for you stand up
Learn to take pain cuz it's time for you to man up
What lies behind this door is a different type of people
Full of jealousy and envy so I'm staring through the peephole
Handshakes and daps mean a lot more than a gesture
Hold the ones you love and make sure they feel the pressure

[Hook x2]
