Tears for ODB, drug-induced poetry
Whats the use? Strung out from that drug abuse, woe is me
80's baby, so I know my pops was gettin high
In the 90's, me and mama barely gettin by
2000's I was concentratin more on gettin fly
Gettin bitches, gettin rich to get the shit I couldnt buy
You know the story, you know my allegory
I was sent from Heaven with a set of horns, theyd better warn yall
Im here for more than just to kick some witty metaphors, dawg
This more of the type of shit you spit to set a war off
Cause niggas be poor, get money and still dont know
Why the fuck they cant cop a house, the system meant to lock us out
But Im knockin down the door, strapped up with a four-four
Robin Hood, shit and yeah, Im hood rich
Thats good enough to stay in new kicks and a good whip
Get good head from a good bitch, I give two shits, Imma tell you straight up

[Hook]
Straight up
Straight up aye, any chance Imma take it
Rather die before I fake it
They say life is what you make it, bitch, but Im just tryna make it
Straight up
Straight up
Straight up aye, any chance Imma take it
Rather die before I fake it
They say life is what you make it, bitch

[Verse 2]
Lord have mercy on my soul what Ive done and what Ive seen
My life has tumbled into that which only you could intervene
I put my heart in senseless things money, bitches and street shit
Fascinated by beef, sad to say I wont be shit
Grew up in this bitch without a pot to piss in, no toilet
How ironic, I took a lot of shit, like a bottom bitch
Or a model chick, high off coke
They lockin sons up for less, I dont care how yall cope
But yet I still peddle this dope and these pills
Ill never know how sittin comfy on that Oprah seat feels
More than likely be on Most Wanted posters, we still
Holdin on to old dreams of bein Hova, be real
We the forgotten souls, bottom of the totem poles
Left for dead, some niggas fled, people said they sold their souls
I just think they found a better way, Lord knows I never pray
But sometimes I be wishin I could levitate, Ill take it straight up

[Hook]
Straight up
Straight up aye, any chance Imma take it
Rather die before I fake it
They say life is what you make it, bitch, but Im just tryna make it
Straight up
Straight up
Straight up aye, any chance Imma take it
Rather die before I fake it
They say life is what you make it, bitch, but I'm just tryna make it
Straight up
