lyrics

Hook:

Yeah I wrote it and I said it, but I can't take the credit
when they ask where you get it? I told them that God give it
wish I could tell you that I thought I was that talented
I take the good with the bad and balance it

Verse 1: Terrence Wood

See that's the truth that I give'em in the interviews
abuse grooves dudes use for their interludes
you tryna eat but you could never fill these dinner shoes
reinvent myself, enthused, emerge new improved
these ain't rhymes, this is me catching moments in time
thought fragments that go through my mind
capture data in word docs and spreadsheets
I crunch numbers, then spit'em out over beds of beats
they be, bursting with flavor, beautiful presentation
it's independent, no contractual obligation
no rappin' occupation this is more therapeutic
brings me back to my center, helps to keep me rooted
for me it's a sick dream, for them it's a get rich quick scheme
some 5Linx hijinks Side thinks differently
don't mistake my quietness for dissin' you
I just know the less you talk, the more you're listened too

Hook:

Yeah I wrote it and I said it, but I can't take the credit
when they ask where you get it? I told them that God give it
wish I could tell you that I thought I was that talented
I take the good with the bad and balance it
Yeah I wrote it and I said it, but I can't take the credit
when they ask where you get it? I told them that God give it
wish I could tell you that I thought I was that talented
I take the good with the bad and balance it

Verse 2: D-Russ

Truthfully speaking I just wanted a ill nine to five
providing for my family more than barely gettin' by
a fly ride, sippin' wine with my dime
while relaxing and unwinding, maximizing our time
but God had a plan in the grand scheme of things
cause honestly, who needs the drama doing music brings
I am that change, you can call me the Potter's clay
his vessel, put here to show the people that there's a better way
say what you say, but we all have our appointed time and day
music is what he's using, and using me to relay
better he giveth than taketh away, so become a good steward
I give'em the glory 'til I die, so go ahead get used to it
I SuWoo it, for the blood that he shed on the cross
he's my compass, accomplice, my company, I'm never lost
got double-crossed plenty of times like when he was crucified
haters truthfully lied, but DR is much obliged
thank you

Hook:

Yeah I wrote it and I said it, but I can't take the credit
when they ask where you get it? I told them that God give it
wish I could tell you that I thought I was that talented
I take the good with the bad and balance it
Yeah I wrote it and I said it, but I can't take the credit
when they ask where you get it? I told them that God give it
wish I could tell you that I thought I was that talented
I take the good with the bad and balance it

Verse 3: Terrence Wood


Rest in peace to the deceased, and God bless the living
see where I'm from the crowds a lot less forgiving
they can see it in your face, they ain't impressed with what your spittin'
so I'm used to under promising and over delivering
it's just in me to naturally rock differently
the bul sick, check levels of toxicity
y'all ain't close, not even in proximity
all out of proportion and lacking the proper symmetry
no chemistry, probably can't do math at all
fishbone or pareto, homie I can graph it all
graphic raw, chisel perfect rhyme sculptures
that combine the real with a little overindulgence
for entertainment purposes only, y'all clowns just a circus of phonies
see the reason why I'm curt with you homie
you underestimate the bul, but can't ignore what
once was an afterthought is now in the forefront

Hook:

Yeah I wrote it and I said it, but I can't take the credit
when they ask where you get it? I told them that God give it
wish I could tell you that I thought I was that talented
I take the good with the bad and balance it
Yeah I wrote it and I said it, but I can't take the credit
when they ask where you get it? I told them that God give it
wish I could tell you that I thought I was that talented
I take the good with the bad and balance it
