lyrics

Verse 1:
Hey so miike what you gonna do when you graduate? Get a job, live on your parents’ couch and masturbate? Go to grad school, finally freakin’ act your age?
Or activate the maximum potential of your accolades? Yo stop actin’ fake the front you’re putting’s obvious Its clear that you don’t wanna do what Simon says
I might just guess you’d rather go and live your life inside a tent, get high as shit Then find a chick and help each other reach enlightenment
Ha, well that’s not too far from where I stand
I’d like to travel in a band and move across the land
I’d like to unravel the sands and understand the time
Become a man of rhyme and analyze a way to manage my Sense of purpose on this earth and how to serve it well
Some people tell me that this rappin’ shit’s a murder spell
But I’ma keep on rhyming cause I know its what I love
Found myself inside the rhymes and gave myself a fuckin’ hug

Chorus:
Hey, don’t say that I can’t do it my, way Made it this far and I’m still, okay Won’t hesitate
Still standing on my two feet
Writing on this loose leaf all day

Verse 2:
(“Yo, yo”)
It’s not my fault that I believe in my dreams
And that I’ll do anything to make them reality
I was just born this way like Lady Gaga said
And I’ma work for what I want until I end up dead
Cause if I don’t chase this dream I’ll probably end up dead Find me in my cubicle with a gun to my head
Bottles of pharmaceuticals, my eyes blood-shot red
When you lie to yourself is when you die to yourself and I’ma Hip-hop head, till hip-hop’s dead
In tip-top shape, to life off, and rip off heads
So tick tock kids, your time’s up, and my times now
Hit the stage and God’s light shines down on the crowd cause I Won’t stop till I perform with Kendrick Lamar
And Ab-Soul or my hero – Childish Gambino
Yeah you know that we dope and we bout to make it big When they ask who it is say “bitch, its miike smiith”

Chorus:
Hey, don’t say that I can’t do it my, way Made it this far and I’m still, okay Won’t hesitate
Still standing on my two feet
Writing on this loose leaf all day
