CHORUS | HOOK


Our lives are moving fast and I got no plans to take it slow
But I’m on this path that I’m never going to pass, so I got to play this roll right
That's just the way it goes, that's just the way it goes, that's just the way it goes, that's just the way it goes
Our lives are moving fast and I got no plans to take it slow
But I’m on this path that I’m never going to past, so I got to play this roll, right??
that's just the way it goes, that's just the way it goes, that's just the way it goes, that's just the way it goes...



VERSE 1 | reciteall



[I’m on the] verge of something great
Diverging from the average
[If] life “never left you fucked”
[you die] virgins by my standards [uh]

These are my actions [uh]
I’m my own toughest critic [uh]
Word to my own existence
[I could] never leave an opportunity passed

My premise is in it to win it
I figure the difference is what I consider this
desire to be original
When pondering a riddle and I’m caught up in the middle of it

I could never twiddle my thumbs, I gotta deal
Show them who’s real iLL
[Still], somebody’s gotta step in that limelight
[but] only when the time’s right. Feeling like mine…

[This is] mine in the moment, on the one time (give it up one time)
these dreams got a mind of their own
[but if they’re] mine, I can own them…
{fuck a punchline} unapologetic, celebrating every day

Life is what you make of it
[This] life is what you make of it
Show you where I’m taking it
[That’s] back to the basics [uh]

spent many-a-nights (nights)
[paying] dues making music tight (tight)
[so when I] hit the stage tonight
know it’s not a stage in my life…

[All the flashing] lights, / cams in my eye
[rapping] remarks for remark-able people
[setting up] shop to unlock this keyhole
[never found a] life test so real…[uh]



VERSE 2 | ALD



Ayo, we live in a process
all caught up in a similar nonsense
main goal is collecting that profit
getting that wallet Christopher Wallace

meaning your wallet is fat no biggie
but whether im counting stacks or some pennies
i'll be true
won't let it affect the raps that i'm penning, [uh]

the common interest i figure
are the figures with the commas in it
but why accommodate to a common taste
if it defines the way that you livin'?

try to - defy the lines that you fit in
i'm a - rise high above limits
try to - find a way to be satisfied
despite the nine to five that we given (like)

i-watch-the-clock-tickin'-after-punchin'-in-my-ticket
another day with that grind i'm on
like a-ticking-time-bomb-never-taking-time off
i mean, i'm-ticking-til i go..(pause)... off

...off
and now that music is blastin'
a bunch of bars that i practice
numerous sound files rough drafting

(i) got myself a career
but rap will always be a passion
i told myself never compromise
cus-i-gotta- make-both-of-them-happen

(see), i been adept at adapting
to get in-depth i worked off my debt - while rappin
taken definite steps to put that plan into action
