XODUS – Mastery Lyrics
Yo, it’s like my mind is never settled,
Gotta be the waves, gotta be the way I
Diss the pillow and minimum wage,
‘Cause I won’t be a slave to wage,
I’d rather be a grave,
Grave danger for the nigga who dare step in my way.
Conflicted, tryna bank, but what I’m grippin’
Got me locked up in this pivot,
Shootin’ in the dark, tryin’ not to start a blizzard,
Brain hurricane through my frustration,
But I look so patient, nigga.
On the surface, I’m stayin’ calm.
The world tryna bug me but I bring a blaze, a swarm.
Covertly hostile hatin’ mobs, ah,
I just throw the fuckin’ blazer on, ha.
Cut ’em off like a limb,
‘Cause they smile in my face, behind their back is a syringe.
I try not to breed negative energy,
Success is how I bury the hatchet deep in my enemies.
I’m lookin’ at this half full glass….
And I’m wishin’ I could drink too,
But I spend these long days grinding,
And I spend these nights tryna figure out exactly what to drink to.
I think too much, who knew it would be the death of me?
Start the morning with black coffee, will I ever rest in peace?
Every night I let these dreams get the best of me,
And I wake up far from ’em, I won’t let it be.
I’m working toward my vision through the red-eye.
They go beddy-bye, I told the bed bye, matter fact tell ’em I said hi.
I gotta confess, I dream like I never woke the fuck up,
But that’s impossible, ’cause I never rest.
Figure that these figures haven’t figured out that I won’t stop
Until I got ’em or there’s fuckin’ maggots in my flesh line,
Maggots in my flesh line….Yeah,
I gotta be the best, the best to me and you means different things,
You hittin’ spliffs, my highs higher, I fix for things.
Broker than a stock boy, bear market chips are thin,
But watch me while I’m eating them meals soon to be fit for kings.
I ain’t claiming crowns is bad politics,
College taught me anything less is fuckin’ impoverishment,
Wage slaves talking ’bout what wage slaves isn’t,
What they could’ve, what they didn’t,
I don’t mind, I mind my business.
I play with words, you play with dreams.
Dreams are no laughing matter and this life ain’t what it seems.
Borders that you see, dawg, I’m bustin’ out the seams,
‘Cause you fuckin’ squares couldn’t see my circle, not the team.
Not the motherfucking team….
Yo, this shit that I’m sippin’, sky-walker’s what I call it,
Blue label sittin’ crooked all on it.
This ain’t nothin’ sweet, y’all don’t want this boss shit,
I run this like it’s faucet,
And these flows just come out, I don’t force it.
Price of paradise, tell me, what’s it gonna cost him?
An arm and a leg? I promise, I can afford it.. I promise, I can afford it.
