    i could never contemplate
    puttin' down my pen
    let creative lights go out
    and start trippin' again
    on enough **** to make
    my head spin
    Fu**in' head case
    no flow
    no dough
    so high
    and long lonely nights
    by myself
    in a race
    against time
    when I
    look at myself
    eye to eye
    bury my pain
    bury me
    worry free
    in a cloud
    smokey haze
    filled days
    never see clearly
    each road I take dreary
    wondering if I'd see
    a new and better day
    creatively stifled
    not here to be trifled
    with
    no grease
    no peach
    just ease
    into these
    shoes
    and use
    my pain
    my rain
    my shame
    inane, profane
    blame
    no forgiveness
    what is this
    instant replay
    a time to repay
    a debt that I owe
    for some **** that
    I know
    for a breath that
    I breathe
    for the ones that
    I leave
    behind
    in the limelight
    in mind
    but out of sight
    despite
    in spite
    much to the delight
    of some who would want to
    stumble everything that I do
    rumble every dream that I dream
    who cream
    when I scream
    out in pain
    in vain
    over the inhumane
    insane
    way of life
    of living it in strife
    discontent
    at the way moments were spent
    hurting people hurt people
    but yo *** won't hurt me
    I got the balls to be
    who I be
    when I be being me
    not wanting to keep you down
    buy my time to shine just came around
    we'er all meant to make
    lemonade
    if you'd stop tryin' to fake
    perpetrate
    be a B!T*H about yours
    take that **** by the horns
    make your paper
    get yours
    sake that **** up
    get up and come up
    on somethin'
    don't stop running
    don't look over your shoulder
    cause my *** is like a boulder
    rolling down hill
    I come so correct
    your heart will stand still
    the way I do what I do
    the way I sway
    till you quake in your shoes
    while I rake in my dues
    it's disturbingly true
    that I'm leaving you
    behind
    in the limelight
    in mind but out of sight
    while I make
    my own **** right
    tighter than tight
    and hold up to the
    bright white light
    that I'm under
    reaking havoc
    taking the industry by the nutz
    I'm here to pillage and plunder
    louder than thunder
    leave no stone unturned
    no deal undone
    so talented
    no wonder
    I'm so confident
    no see you sow
    could put a dent
    in my teflon
    or make me sleep with the lights on
    when it's cold outside
    and there's nowhere left to hide
    and the world is the last place
    you'd rather be
    but you can't disappear
    now that you're here
    you might as well live it
    with dignity
    sincerity
    if you know what that means
    stop selling your soul
    for a bowl of beans
    one day you gotta get old
    don't let your grudges take hold
    and steal the wonder years
    when you could be proposing toasts
    cheers
    to you
    cheers
    to me
    and everything I am and will be
    when I leave your *** behind
    in the limelight
    in mind
    but out of sight
