In my life
But Jah open my eyes

So many fake people
Closing in in my life oh
But Jah open my eyes…

God bless the people keeping it real with me
To the people who saw me do the ordeal with me
I would’ve tapped into the realm of that which killed Whitney
I would have tapped into the realm of that which killed Whitney
But I crawled out of my shadows trying to perceive light
Cos I believe there must have been something that I did right
I realize that I became the better version
Of the version everybody thought was a better version
And rap is the reason to kill
It’s murder the bars, murder the tender
Then I will murder the bills yeah yeah
