"That dude Apollo told me black out..."

Verse 1
That dude Apollo told me black out
Got that pressure feeling like it's really building, on the surface chilling
Underneath I'm cracked out
My blood pressure rising knowing what's on the horizon
Like I'm rising, but already feeling tapped out
Like my cash cow is fresh out of milk
And empires taking diligence and effort to build
And nobody pays attention till the messenger's killed
I've been thinking lately I should make my exit and chill
And that perspective is real
Getting caught up in my record and how editors feel
See my competitors and know that I'm ahead in the field
But still, I'm trying to better than Pill
You know my head it gets filled
With politicin' like Obama and a Senator's bill
With thoughts spinning, walk with him, lost in it
Liquor store blues, how's that medicine fell?

Walk with me in this dark city
With this heart skipping, where the people talk shitty
Where it's hard living and now every parts given
And it's party pretty and it's part prison
Where we stay with complaints and decay with the paint
We play with the pain while we're waiting on that new thing
We wait and we want for the day we get on
But this is life motherfucker, what did you think?

Verse 3
There's a lot of days I gotta take a step back
And anyone who's ever been there respects that
Cuz when I get vindictive, I get intricate
and specific as a pin prick is
Most of my bullshit in this, is self inflicted
I know that, I help this sickness
Most of my problems I create
It's hard to swallow what I ate, but scrape the bottom of that plate
So am I following mistakes?
Or do I make them on my own and chalk it all up to my fate?
Cuz everyday it seems I wind up with another issue
Something to get through, more I gotta live through
And I get shocked by it
Still surprised when the noises in my life interrupt and they are not quiet
So is it something to get used to?
Or something that I already knew and just had to move through?
