lyrics

(Verse 1)

Let’s do it
You witnessing the life of a survivor
Turned wrongs to right
the theme of my life, still every day’s a fight
A struggle trying to bubble
But tough to win through troubled winds
Please believe me, I wish life was more breezy
Not necessarily easy, ‘cause trials plus error
Equals perseverance you can measure
A buried treasure
And I know the game is to be sold not told
but some of y’all value that fool’s gold
See that’s a little fame, and that’s a little fortune
but the bond with your homies you sold it at the auction
The nerve of these dudes, you better move with caution
I’ve seen jealousy fire back too often
This is so awkward, I try to lead by example
The principals of what a man should do
Keep it real with your peers, you see that’s the rule
Yo I thought it’s oh so easy to catch the jewel, but

(Chorus: Ad Libs)

Just tell me, what happened
I don’t understand
I drop knowledge, you should pick it up man
Ok

(Verse 2)

Yeah
See I don’t know either, you got a little fever
So you trap all your peeps in a room full of ether
But give me one chance to teach ya
Just because you hot, don’t make you invincible, believe bruh
Yessir, Floe got the best words
They say revenge on ice is how it’s best served
And that’s what my comrades heard
So we fall back and chill, plotting before we get ill
It ain’t all about the dollar bill
‘cause them greenbacks don’t mean jack
and ain’t the reason for the attack
It’s when loyalty gets hijacked
You let it crash and burn, so now it’s your turn
The sabotage is camouflaged, grab the head nigga in charge
Manhandle him, stiching him and bandage him
The nerve while we beating his ass, pleading
There’s just one question I have to ask

(Chours: Ad Libs 2)

What question, you serious?
Nah, stop playing man
I don’t wanna hear that
Whatever

(End)
