lyrics

"As I Dream"

When you eliminate frustration
You're captivated with greatness
Mixing hard work and hustle
Then you chase it with patience
Know your destiny is waiting
It worth the struggle to make it
If it don't make cents don't hate it
These riches can be created

Swear to skies above I'd never sell my soul
And If it came to that
I'd have to book a session
And leave my heart in the studio
Who really knows

What the end result will be
As I continue to beat these
Rappers like the police
I'm in a running my own conscience
Ear to conches
To hear the sea
Got the guidance
Of a goddess to deliver me
Battling demons that won't never leave
They try to defeat
They say to make it

Gotta fake it
Can't be me
Refuse to sell out for a single
Put that on the record
They swear my life is a movie
Won't make what was projected
Something about realness
Only a few recognize
Give me them coins
I need them millions to shine

Can't see a star will blind eyes
Only fail if you don't try
If they knock you down
Set your pace
Even if you're last
Finish the race

This is the perfect equation
Of adding your failures
To equal to greatness
I'm silencing every voice
Lent to you
Telling you
That in the end
You wouldn't make it


Before conception
Into adolescent
these things was manifested
To inspire belief of being less than
Torn from royalty now retaking my thrown
Give me all that I own
I swear these nights be so cold
I seen the bottom now I'm on the rise
Seen the dream I see with closed eyes
No appetite for what
they tryna feed me
Believe me
We gon make it out
Or we gon die trying
On these dreams, we relying
Odds defying

Remaining Defiant
Ugh
All I ever had
Was a pad and pen
It kept me out the padded room

Away from that penitentiary
Silly of me to see in me
What no one see
Possibly hypocrisy
All i had was my faith in me
No college degree
Assumptions of what i'd graduate to be

As they continue to sleep follow my dreams

Everything ain't as it seems
All that glitters don't gleam
a one soldier army
Tryna break the regime

This is a new era of terror
Refuse to be scared of
Any man-made emotion
Configured devoted to holding you
Comfortable with conforming
Jumping out of the normal

Middle finger to formal
We just creating turmoil
We still at the bottom

We got our eyes on the top
Only way they can hold me
Is if my heart stop
I do care if they never believe
Bet they gon see
What happens when you following your dreams
Young Dreamer



(Chorus)
And you'll see
All Of Me
Who I'm trying to be
Whats inside of me

As I Dream (x2)
Who I'm trying to be
Whats inside of me
As I Dream (x2)
Who I'm trying to be

Whats inside of me
As I Dream (x2)
Who I'm trying to be
Whats inside of me
As I Dream

You can't surpass what is classic
Put me in the mix
I already got it mastered
And I got em totaled like a bad car crash
I'm the power in the engine and I
Got em bagged like the air in the dash
I see my visions
In HD
I make them reality
Too in tune with the power that be
To not succeed
The stars aligned
And we shine

It's go time
Powers in the mind
guaranteed you'll see mine


(Chorus)
And you'll see
All Of Me
Who I'm trying to be
Whats inside of me

As I Dream (x2)
Who I'm trying to be
Whats inside of me
As I Dream (x2)
Who I'm trying to be
Whats inside of me
As I Dream (x2)
Who I'm trying to be
Whats inside of me
As I Dream
