Yeah, yeah
It's almost over now, almost over now
It's almost over now, almost over now

You think the way you live is okay
You think posin' will save your day
You think we don't see that you're running
Better call your boys 'cause I'm coming

You can't be me, I'm a rock star
I'm rhymin' on the top of a cop car
I'm a rebel an' my 44 pops far
It's almost over now, it's almost over now

Guess, you ain't heard that we swallow guys
It's too damn late to apologize
When you see the mantle or when you see the skies
It's almost over now, almost over now

You think that you don't have to ever quit
You think that you can get away with it
You think the light won't be ever lit
It's almost over now, almost over now

Somethin' on your chest? Better get it off
There'll be no one left when we set it off
We ain't gonna take it no more
Since it's almost over now, almost over now

You have to plenty of time, there was no rush
But it was your dream to be like us
You're in dreamland, so you don't care
And as you wake we're standing there

You can't be me, I'm a rock star
I'm rhymin' on the top of a cop car
I'm a rebel an' my 44 pops far
It's almost over now, it's almost over now

I guess, you ain't heard that we swallow guys
It's too damn late to apologize
When you see the mantle or when you see the skies
It's almost over now, almost over now

You think that you don't have to ever quit
You think that you can get away with it
You think the light won't be ever lit
It's almost over now, almost over now

Somethin' on your chest? Better get it off
There'll be no one left when we set it off
We ain't gonna take it no more
Since it's almost over now, almost over now

Just gotta get it off, yeah, get it off
Look, it's almost over now, almost over now

You don't succeed 'cause you hesitate
You think we're flyin', but we levitate
Just be yourself, don't ask us why
'Cause if you don't, we'll make you cry

You can't be me, I'm a rock star
I'm rhymin' on the top of a cop car
I'm a rebel an' my 44 pops far
It's almost over now, almost over now

I guess, you ain't heard that we swallow guys
It's too damn late to apologize
When you see the mantle or when you see the skies
It's almost over now, almost over now

You think that you don't have to ever quit
You think that you can get away with it
You think the light won't be ever lit
It's almost over now, almost over now

Somethin' on your chest? Better get it off
There'll be no one left when we set it off
We ain't gonna take it no more
Since it's almost over now, almost over now

You can't be me, I'm a rock star
I'm rhymin' on the top of a cop car
I'm a rebel an' my 44 pops far
It's almost over now, it's almost over now

I guess, you ain't heard that we swallow guys
It's too damn late to apologize
When you see the mantle or when you see the skies
It's almost over now, it's almost over now

No one ever really dies
Do you believe that ? Well, if not, for you
It's almost over now, almost over now
It's almost over now, almost over now

I guess, you ain't heard that we swallow guys
I guess, you ain't heard that we swallow guys
It's almost over now, almost over now
