(Hook) Just in case my time comes and I’m gone
with the wind/a few words written down for my family and friends/I know I gotta die soon,
I live through my pen/say one last prayer and I say amen...
Is this life that I’m living, this life that I’m living…/is this life that I’m
living this life that I’m living…
(Verse I) Whoever said illegal was the easy way out
never understood the mechanics or better yet the demographics/not in regards to cars when
I talk about traffic/more or less package it in plastic, ship it off/I ain’t trying
to go hungry like I’m fasting, so I got my seatbelt fastened, strapped in/I’m ready
for any opposition, the slightest form of disposition, sleeping with the fishes/gotta
pardon my demeanor, I know my attitude seems a little bit meaner but I had to get my green
up/grew up with no benefits, tenements with ignorant ass tenants, abandoned child negligence/and
those were the peers in my classrooms, wet toilet paper thrown to the ceilings of bathrooms/with
no discipline, I was listening to Christopher Wallace, Shawn Carter or The Infamous…/and
I was blue collar struggling, selling M&M’s on the train, niggas hustlin’, beer guzzlin’,
and even when I tried to steer clear people still found and.../these trying times seem
troubling, especially with a multitude of stress and the money’s not doubling/so we
resort to bubbling, checking the degree by the oven and…/I made a covenant to never
take meals from the government, I’m trying to stack paper like Republicans…/or the
Rothschild’s and Bilderberg’s, so I slang words or a bird, what do you prefer?/honestly
it’s best you concur, and I tell the whole story so you ain’t gotta read the blurb/honestly
it’s best you concur, and I tell the whole story, ya’ll know the rest…
(Hook) Just in case my time comes and I’m gone

Is this life that I’m living, this life that I’m living…/is this life that I’m
living this life that I’m living…
(Verse II) Motivated by the movers not the shakers, by
the builders not the breakers, by the givers not the takers/by the ones who wasn’t given
any handouts, no silver spoons in the man’s mouth/by the Kennedy’s, Rockefeller’s
and the Carnegie’s, the Colombo’s and the Genovese/I’m not saying that I advocate
treachery but more so the quest for longevity you feel me?/I’m not saying that I advocate
treachery but more so the quest for longevity you don’t get it/I’m not saying that I
advocate treachery but more so the quest for longevity, forgive me…
