this some rob the rich give it to the poor talk
this that money on your books for the store draw
this is mail-call, cyphers in the chow hall
this that everybody eat, that’s a mouthful
this is EOS date no probation
this my pops ghost praying not an old saying
this is adiós to fake homies on the low hating
everything changed down the road, ain’t no playing
it’s that spot a play from a hundred yards away
this that living on the edge, habits hard to break
life is like a five-dollar bottle of chardonnay
give-a-penny, take-a-penny-Hardaway, all the way
it’s kinda magic though, the way it happens yo
went from relapsing to a passion I ain’t had before
I know your sign, yeah I know your tell-tale
know when you're lying, you're dying for me to fail
well, I don’t take shit for granted, boy I've felt Hell
hard to think of a time I really felt well
except for maybe the feeling of getting snail-mail
that’s a silver lining to kicking dope in a jail cell
that’s a lot of baggage but I ain’t even tripping
bag packed in case the folks come then I’m dipping
shit is different now, fear of missing out
got me starting fake MySpace accounts like a fishing-scam
funny how it hit the fan over just a gram
I’m on the run hitting stages when I’m touching down
that's that ManeLine, that's that ugly brown
that's that dog food, smelling like a puppy pound
I don’t touch it now, removed the claws
war wounds to prove it, bruises and all
that life was never for me, I improved the odds
now every time I tell the story get oohs and ahs
they like "Woah, hard to imagine you ever went through that"
"Woah, what was it like is it really that bad"
"Oh the green dot, sorry i never sent you that"
so just know if I go back ain’t going back broke
bullshit aside it’s only time that’s all
we locked up in our mind not just behind that wall
as if by design whenever signed into law
we looking in mirrors tryna find that flaw
especially if you grew up poor by default
no money for a lawyer to afford my cross
million dollar bond set a war cry off
years after duck died swore it’s my fault
