Understanding my new turf
Emphasizing for what it’s worth
What is left there to exert?
When drained from all your work

Overloaded, no control
New ideas just now turned old
Past has nothing to withhold
It’s stopping, it’s stopping, it’s stopping gotta go

Renovate and estimate
A new productive line of trade
A new product with the traits
A new style that decorates
The designs that I create
Will stick with yall and never fade
But new interests can be made
So I’ma have to generate

Cause I was chillin when above
But now I’m back on the ground
Working hard again
To creat that new sound
Being pulled back to the place
The state that I was bound
Cause whenever on top
You will eventually come back down

You gotta redefine, realign
All your parts that are out of date
Energize and recombine
You’re rebuilding your best traits
You gotta readjust your plan
Man you gotta stimulate
You’re working back with scratch
So you’ll have to innovate
Cause the crowd will not adjust
Unless you advocate
You can not play the same tune
Your music must be remade
Adjust to new settings
Cause your working back on base
Then reapply, then subscribe
Your reputation is now safe

See I’m not always focused
I’d be randomly off track
Trippin out in the back
Out of world, no contact
So there’s no drama, so relaxed
Cause communications such a drag
But gravity’s affecting me
So I gotta redo my act

Cause I was chillin when above
But now I’m back on the ground
Working hard again
To creat that new sound
Being pulled back to the place
The state that I was bound
Cause whenever on top
You will eventually come back down

Nothing lasts forever
That’s why life has a cycle
If you think you can get around it
Then you are clearly in denial

Everytime that you succeed
Every time that you a achieve
You must work harder than before
To not give into defeat

That’s why the top is such a risk
Cause when you fall you enlist
You agree to certain terms
Terms you cannot resist
Your life now consists
Of worthless labor, a business
You’re suffering by production
So there are no benefits

The top is such a plague
A disease that makes me sick
Cause when I’m out I’m coughing dreams
As well as my interests

But the recovery sets me free
Out again, now I can lead
As yall follow just take heed
Understand and be intrigued
As my story now unfolds
Look at the chapters in-between
The plot cannot be told
That is why you have to read
So you can retrieve
Receive all your needs

That’s why I choose to know
Cause I’m tired of being below

Cause I was chillin when above
But now I’m back on the ground
Working hard again
To creat that new sound
Being pulled back to the place
The state that I was bound
Cause whenever on top
You will eventually come back down

I need to break this chain
So that I can obtain
A better link into fame
A better link into change
I’m tired of the same
So much lost and can’t regain
I can only move on
It’s such a damn shame

All my wants out of grasp
And when I get em I hold back

I second guess if it’s real
Can’t depend on touch and feel

One day I shall relax
But that’s just hope man not a fact

There’s nothing more to reveal
So don’t count on a sequel

The lowest only withhold
Things that will help them persevere
So they’ll stick around
And yet we think they disappeared
So when they rise on top
Things are totally unclear
They’re dysfunctional out of work
Gonna need an engineer
So I shall suffer and endure
Until I’m ready to appear
Cause I’m at the bottom of the class
I can only get better from here

I will either climb or just drop
I could grow, or just rot
If I could go and not stop
I’d be the one to call the shots
Cause I could bore or just shock
I choose to be, or be not
But one way or another
I will be on top!
