So Low Submit Correct Lyrics

I can go so low
I can feel the gravity that's in the world around me
I can go so low
I can feel the fire burning as it swirls around me

And I've been so low
I felt ice cold in hours at the bottom of the sea
Might have been so low
You might did low, get low but you never been low to me

Yeah, I always speak for the struggle, my people still hurting
I'm a name brand, I'm a product but still a real person
I'm still flirting with death although I'm still certain
About my commitments in life, although I'm still searching

I bet I find a way, if not I bet I make a path
One that's seldom traveled by the masses
I never get stuck in all the traffic, I cut through all the plastic
Enemies of the enlightened like the government is fascist

I talk it how, I live it, yet I'm still considered a walking contradiction
'Cause I'm breaking out of your artistic prison
Listen, I got my own demons, what I'm supposed to do with yours?
Times like this I gotta remind myself what I do it for

People I knew before, celebrity swear they see the change in me
I tell 'em change is God, you gotta let it be
How does it feel to come full circle?
Still cursing, still pursing my lips to pull purple

But I can go so low
I can feel the gravity that's in the world around me
I can go so low
I can feel the fire burning as it swirls around me

And I've been so low
I felt ice cold in hours at the bottom of the sea
Might have been so low
You might did low, get low but you never been low to me

Witness it, the building of a legacy
So let us just pray 'cause the journey that's ahead of us
Got us facing a task that just might get the best of us
That's why we gotta clash with the Titans like Pegasus

No Oedipus but it's like the beat is my therapist
When I let it in it get up in the cracks and the crevices
Of my memories, what kind of treasure are you buried with?
You fight when you die are you a soldier or a terrorist

Remember this there's no one else to blame when you're solo
Establish your fan base local before you take it global
Don't be scared spend your own dough
You gotta speak up, be vocal, sometimes you feel so low

Ain't nowhere to go but up go with us
We just getting started, why you slowing up but know enough to know
This was done by the collective we even if my name is on the record sleeve
I ain't into brevity, what the fuck is a celebrity?

I can go so low
I can feel the gravity that's in the world around me
I can go so low
I can feel the fire burning as it swirls around me

And I've been so low
I felt ice cold in hours at the bottom of the sea
Might have been so low
You might did low, get low but you never been low to me
