Gotta stop, working the 9-5,
pry open the widest eye
can find the deepest dirt on the most open honest guy,
realize we all human
it's a good reason to forgive,
but don't use em for excuses cuz they useless,
it's a lesson i'm still learning, I ain't perfect,
but I know it's worth it, to protect my weaknesses,
get up, no matter how large a defeat it is,
rise to the challenge and repeat again,

we rise above the shit,
I ain't got no money, but I'm some type of other rich,
sitting at the summit, watching ya'll plummet.
that ain't how the game stay played, re-runnit,
table of bones & plum wine, where the rum went?

v2 1:20
The, Illest personified,
the, critics will not abide
ones with foresight want me to sign, the dotted line
plottin' covert projects with the round table of rhyme
I'm the author,
Pen draggen lines in the sand like,
"Go head, cross it…make my day"
move with caution, ain't not turning back once you came this way.
