(Hook) Money cost more than most things Ain’t too far from rope strings Explosives, gold rings, dope fiends Can’t keep track of my proceeds Money’s no more than commas Keeping us all on collars Why some boi turn robbers Probably why mans want problems Money cost more than most things Ain’t too far from rope strings Explosives, gold rings, dope fiends Can’t keep track of my proceeds Money’s no more than dollars No black lovable scholars All of our girls need mamas All of our boys need fathers (Verse) I’m feeling like a private eye and shit Trying to find a better diet, rich in all the iron, vitamins and finer things I been blind but nigga, I’m assigned to where the driver sits Disarm me way before the crisis hits How I’m gon’ make my own survival kit? Don’t wanna think about what lies amid? ‘Cause they got trouble making rent And they gon’ struggle with they tenant And they gon’ run to taking bets, they lost and they’d be better off just sailing west, nah But the soil stained flaming red And grass cover it, buildings cover it Got these mansions out in US cities Probably mans under it, niggas under it Feel me, fuck it, this a war zone Coated with law and order Silencing war is a taller order Travel the path with a water border Know that the bath been the water courses Trained from the past, we was not important And we ain’t eat average, we grovel porridge Now we know that that cash is chaotic orbit, and we Never seen Atlanta but we travelled the Atlantic, all my ancestors vanished, all aboard this here titanic, I just hope they didn’t panic (Where did I come from) I just know they didn’t panic (Where do we come from) I just know they didn’t (Hook) Never seen Atlanta but we travelled the Atlantic, all my ancestors vanished, all aboard titanic, I just hope they didn’t (Where did I come from) I just know they didn’t panic (Where do we come from) I just know they didn’t
