Lyrics

When I turned 18, everybody told me
"You betta start thinking 'bout what you gon' be
A doctor, a lawyer
You could go see about college,
Then follow with a good J-O-B
Cause you don't wanna be another triple OG
On the corner talking 'bout he coulda flipped a whole key
If he never would've got bleeped by the police, So
Trust me you could be employee of the month if you work hard, put in OT
Stack yo' cheese, stack yo' pay
And when it get humdrum ask for a raise
Get enough sick days to raise a family
Find a nice lady, your one and only
Have a few babies, your first born seed
Have a girl named Daisy, a boy named Steve
And your old name Adam, your new name D-A-D-D-Y." Shit why not be?
That's what my folks did, shit why not me?
So that's what I'll probably end up doing, but meantime, why not see?
How far this music will take me?
You get one life, I just wanna live mine free
Cause one night I could go and D-I-E
And for all I know, bro, tonight might be that night
So I'mma act like I don't see
All the people saying, "Slow your roll and don't speed."
I'mma act like I don't see all the people saying, "Don't rock the boat, please
Stop trying to dream the impossible dream
Stop trying to leap all the obstacles we put dead in your path,
Don't laugh and don't lead
Don't speak, don't love, and don't breathe
Don't fight, don't think you won't bleed
Don't ask questions, don't write, and don't read
But you better start thinking 'bout what you gon' be
You better start thinking 'bout what you gon' be
You better start thinking 'bout what you gon' be!
Gladly, I just wanna be happy
Oh I'm on my way, I know I am (I know I am)
Somewhere not so far from here (so far from here)
All I know is all I feel right now
I can feel the power growing in my head
Oh I'm on my way, I know I am (I know I am)
Somewhere not so far from here (so far from here)
All I know is all I feel right now
I can feel the power growing in my head
I can feel the power growing in my head
