[Verse 1: Chisenga]
I've been sober for a while, try to lead by example
Tackling this life, so my hands full
Head on the low, growing up I played Hammer learning dance moves
Way before the blockchain, my nigga, cash ruled
(Cash rules everything around me, CREAM)
Momma don't wanna tell me when she going through things
And it affects me, my friends think I got mood swings
They don't know I got shit on my mind
I question this life and I don't get it, yo
Chila just died, my young brother had a mini-stroke
What happens when you pray? You never see results (uh)
Thе pastor told me, "Like, Chisenga, keep thе faith, man. It's achievable
Learn how to nurture the nature
Plant a seed and it's conceivable."
Tendency to overthink what is just me alone
It's second nature for a Gemini
And my evolution can never be televised
Public figure with a private life
At times I can't sleep, it's all these demons that I fight at night (uh)
[Verse 2]
Morning time sunrise, the birds chirping
Part of the life equation is to seek truth and find purpose (and find purpose)
Used to smoke a doobie just to open up the third eye
So I could see the world through a bird's eye
High enough so I could kiss the sky
Reality struck in the mirror, like "Who is this guy?"
I was battling addiction but I was in denial
Actin' like I wrote the freakin' book of life, but what would I know?
A lot of shit thrown at me, but then I didn't blink
I was hit with everything except the kitchen sink
So what, I'm a flawed human, and I'm a young
Entrepreneur, call me the next Mark Cuban
I got friends that I ain't spoken to in years
It's like this unwritten code because the love is still there
And I'm not the perfect child, but then my momma still care
And when she mad at me, I respect her enough to feel fear
And it ain't the type of fear that you're scared
It's the fear to lose that one true love that's been there
Uh (Woop woop!) Ayy
[Verse 3]
Growing up, I was creative, man, I knew the art
But it's hard to make a dog out of the wood bark
Toxic people, I cut them out of my life
And that goes for him and her, and I don't care if you're my... (Shhh)
I'll leave you to your own device, you fill in the blanks
Soon as I walk they want one more chance, damn
Huh, it's no coincidence
Think about it and don't treat it just like some isolated incident
This is the road to success
You would think that it's brutal if you don't own it and invest
Chateau Petrus with Phillipé when we celebrate
Partnerships you only dream about like when you meditate (uh) Partnerships you only dream about like when you meditate
One bottle out of a dozen
One sip, a nigga buzzin'
This is food for thought, you should get a plate
