I was Fast Asleep but Now I’m Awake

I was under the spell of Kangol and reserved notes
Religion and fashion, I used to be flashy
‘Til I had a total recall, forgot what I’ve already knew
It took me 33 years for me to see the truth
Ever so clear I was too young
I couldn’t articulate myself the right way son
But now let me break it down, pass it all around
This is not a theory, the conspiracy is real

Collapsed Vein Flow

With some niggas that be trappin’ shit with packages;
Their cake is up
Got my mumma tripping like she jogging and her ankles touch
Now I’m at the Waldorf stressin’
Fidget with the zipper on the warlord leather
Whisky with the spliff cause it goes more better
Why bench him if he’s scoring under full court pressure

Fuck, that’s Delicious

Uh, my clique is so nuts
Big shit to lift you like a triple-toe lutz
In these streets, even a cripple gonna bust
Keep a thing that won’t rust
There’s no trust
Rather laugh with the sinners than cry with the saints
After I’m high and disgraced, only a lion remains

 

Got an Arsenal of Smiles for You

I hide my tears from the crowd by smiling
By smiling

I’m even smiling for me
Smiling so you know why you can’t hurt me
Smiling for something, not hiding from falling
Now what you know about what smiles are all about

Gotta keep moving the weight
Winter, summer, spring to the fall
Gotta keep food on my plate
Gotta keep plaques on the wall

Gotta keep proving I’m great
I’m so sick of it all
Gotta keep smile on my face
Even if I slip and I fall

Gotta have mask for the pain
If you want to master the game
I was only after the props
Really I was never after the fame

I was never after the Range
Now I’m like a rat in a race
Always tryna catch up the chase
Feeling like I’m trapped in the maze

Never let ’em see me when I’m down
Never let ’em see me with a frown
Even when the game beat me to the ground
I get up and go another round

Lock it up and show another town
Break it up and roll another pound
Change it up and go another route
Flip and make a whole another sound

Like the way I did on hold it down
Yeah, you know the kid’ll hold it down
Never knew the name, you know it now
Never knew the face, you know it now

Look at all this cake I’m holding now
Thinking of a way to throw it now
Fuck it, everyday I blow it now
Gotta get it where I know it now

I’m even smiling for me
Smiling so you know why you can’t hurt me
Smiling for something, not hiding from falling
Now what you know about what smiles are all about

I’m even smiling for me
Smiling so you know why you can’t hurt me
Smiling for something, not hiding from falling
Now what you know about what smiles are all about
