I know I should'nt have did that
I know it's gonna come right back
I know it's gonna destroy everythin' I made
It's probably gonna get your boy sent away
But this game I play ain't no way to fix it
It's inevitable that I'm

Said where I would stop be fore I even started
When I get to one brick then the game I would depart with
Got to one brick then I looked to the sky like
Sorry God, I lied but give me one more try

Got the two bricks new cars new whips
But niggas never learn till they end up in the news clip
The irony of sellin' drugs is sort of like you using it
Guess it's two sides to what substance abuse is

Can't stop, won't stop addicted to this new shit
Brand new convertibles, I'm so roofless
Front row fight night, see how big my tube is
Fuck HD nigga, see how clear my view is?

But there's a price for overdoing it
Doin' it this big will put you on the map
Stick-up kids is out to tax
Plus the FBI boys with the cameras in the back
Damn

I know I should'nt have did that
I know it's gonna come right back
I know it's gonna destroy everythin' I made
It's probably gonna get your boy sent away
But this game I play ain't no way to fix it
It's inevitable, now you fallin'

When you should've fall back, now you fallin'
Right into they lap fallin' and applaudin'
And they screamin' at the screen
Damn you fucked up like your favorite movie scene

Godfather, Goodfellas, Scarface, Casino
You seen what that last run did to De Niro
And he can't beat the odds, can't cheat the cards
Can't blow to hard, life's a deck of cards

Now you tumblin', it's humblin', you fallin', you mumblin'
Under your breath like you knew this day was comin', fallin'
Now let's pray that arm candy
That you left your ex for stay down and come in handy

'Cause come January it gets cold
When the letters start to slow, when your commissary's low
And lawyers screams appeal only thinkin' about a bill
And your chances are nil damn gravity's ill

I know I should'nt have did that
I know it's gonna come right back
I know it's gonna destroy everythin' I made
It's probably gonna get your boy sent away
But this game I play ain't no way to fix it
It's inevitable, but you're fallin'

And you can't get up, all you do is push-up, pull-up, sit-up
Locked down the town now belongs to the squares
Who said they won't make the same mistake that got you there
And your arm candy sweet on em'

And the woman that you left for this heffer got a college degree comin'
Bad news keeps comin', hard to keep somethin' on your stomach
Your sick 'bout what ya life is becomin'

But your use-to's has-beens raggin' bad 'bout all the new dudes
Talking tough on the Youtube
'Bout what you use to do but that's old school to the new crew
They doin' numbers like Sudoku

There're the new you and it's damn near inevitable
They'll experience deja vu too
Fight and you'll never survive, run and you'll never escape
So just fall from grace, damn

I know I should'nt have did that
I know it's gonna come right back
I know it's gonna destroy everythin' I made
It's probably gonna get your boy sent away
But this game I play ain't no way to fix it
It's inevitable that I'm

Fallin', seems like I'm fallin'
Fallin', seems like I'm fallin'
Fallin', seems like I'm fallin'
Fallin', seems like I'm fallin'

Fallin', seems like I'm fallin'
Fallin', seems like I'm fallin'
Fallin', seems like I'm fallin'
Fallin', seems like I'm
