lyrics

(Verse 1)

God Grant me the serenity

To search into this inner me

And find out what the remedy

I'm trying to keep it real, but its like nobody's listening

To anything but nonsense the media's been conditioning

My heart is breaking- I need to get to this out now

But the ma**es wanna hear lies and I really just don't know how

To put up a good disguise

All I know is being me

Which is nothing like all of these rappers here stacking green

Cuz I mean

I could rhyme about wordplay

In a verse yay

And say I'm further ahead than the first guy that's in first place

Whose weaker than seven days

I'm a beast

In the streets

And anyone whose gonna step to me is getting sweeped

But I won't I choose to be deep

And question why in our music ignorance tends to seep

Or why super high is what everyone wants to be

Or saying all of this out loud will suddenly mean

(Chorus) (2x)

That I got enemies, got a lot of enemies

Who wanna get in my way and take up all my serenity

Who wanna play games and try to mess with me mentally

But I'mma make this music cuz they need something that's genuine

(Verse 2)

God, Grant me the serenity

To accept that I'm not the one that they asked for

Cuz I'm not willing to sell a bunch of lies now

And deal with the problems coming up when we fast-forward

How does a married man sound on all his hits?

Saying last night he did like 17 chicks

Who all know each other and are all okay with this

Clearly it never happened but really what makes no sense

Is the fact that people know this

And it's taking all of their cents

Like their piggy bank got robbed out of no where with no defense

Now I know that last simile right there was childish

But is it really when being one of those men's a child's wish

Misguided and miseducated

Only wanna hear lies cuz that producer made it

I don't about war if our minds have been invaded

Do you understand the picture I just illustrated?

(Chorus) (2x)

That I got enemies, got a lot of enemies

Who wanna get in my way and take up all my serenity

Who wanna play games and try to mess with me mentally

But I'mma make this music cuz they need something that's genuine

(Bridge)

My Mom said honesty's only policy

You know I gotta trust her with that master's in psychology

And my Dad taught me quantity under quality

Do what you do and you'll end up with no apologies

I know that my style's unconventional

It's intentional, I'm setting this fire without permission

So I'll leave you with one condition, yo

Recognize that me lyrics are all subliminal

(Chorus) (2x)

That I got enemies, got a lot of enemies

Who wanna get in my way and take up all my serenity

Who wanna play games and try to mess with me mentally

But I'mma make this music cuz they need something that's genuine

(Prayer)

God grant me the serenity

To accept the things I cannot change

The courage to change the things I can

And the wisdom to know the difference

Thy will

Not mine

Be done
