Uh Yo
I played the sidelines when I couldn’t find my inspiration seems the only guideline is to keep the hate in some wanna bang to it or even slang to it I gave my brain to it you got theme music I’ll switch the station on a naysayer and bring the spirit to these stages while you time wasting from the cradle to the grave I be writing for my life bring it to the page while you beating off a lie yo I told ya’ll oce before I’m not a rapper vibin off thes words while observing all these actors livin scriped they say the want the real im thanking God that I’m gifted to capture life like a snapshot backdrop beach town never seen a crackspot. And If you cant feel my joy how bout you kick rocks cause they gon play this like a toy wheres the disk jock I just wanna be

Yea im just gon
I just wanna be (uh huh)
Im just gon be

Not better than the next man just more deaf fam keep this on file I don’t care whos the next band or the hearsay yo why they fear based the thought of power is the power of though and at the sight of ours it appears we forgot paralyzed by the past now is all that we stop living in sympin then tryin to save face til they shoot again truth can be fake look what they rooted in justice oh whats this that’s as foreign to the masses as my conscience or a debt free dollar while the nonsense deceives you like a smile or fake politics rockin that vote I’ma rock these instrumentals its one thing to cope but I’ma help you shape your mental yo what the problem is oh what you thought I was boy ima lyricist the truth is burning wood

I just wanna be
Yea Im just gon be (uh huh)
Said im just gonna be
Yea I just wanna be
But not a wanna be
