You're the only obstacle strong enough to hold you back...


-Ok I bet you think you know a lot don't you/ and you just tryna share the knowledge huh that's so noble / -I don't care learn about it by what yall go thru/ from what I'm hearing yall opposite from what I hold true/
-I came here to be something they say they never seen/ -you sayin yea but be something that they already peeped/ -I'm saying nah and get up from outta ya leather seat/ politely shake hands we just agreeing to disagree/
-But I think about it now and I understand/ -i guess I had figure out what they wasn't sayin/ -thats why they lookin at me now and they want a hand/ -in what I'm doin I'm like nah fam gon head/
-Im pretty sure I got a handle on the goal now/ -lifes a hell of a woman but she don't know about/ -her potential to be more and so now/ -he convinced her with Di-or to go down/ damn...

- -They gon always try, they gon always lie, they gon always find something wrong/
- - - -But you keep on grinding and keep on trying that's dope/
- - - -They gon get real mad and then talk real but they know/
- - - -That it won't hold you back no it won't hold you back so lets toast!

- -Lets have a toast for the stoners/ - -Lets have a toast for the weirdos/ - -Lets have a toast for the hipsters/ - -Who own everything they wrote/
- -Lets have a toast for the gangstas/ back packers and battlers and skaters/ - -Unfold your wings/ Fly as high as you can...

-Have you ever held onto a dream for so long/ -and ran behind to then realized ya so lost? -lookin around ya lose site of what you goin for/ decide to chill here til you remember what the goal was/
- -But the scene here is dope tho/ -you don't really wanna leave well then don't go/ -you could be one of the leaves you could be the tree if/ you don't wanna reach to ya dreams well then don't grow/
- I know where I wanna be but I don't know the path/ -and I ain't got no one to lead and I don't own the map/ - but I can see from here I'm a go with that/ you the only obstacle strong enough to hold ya back/
-Damn- did that last truth blow ya mind/ -did that inspire you to finally learn how to fly/ well step 1 has been completed I can show u now/ -unfold your wings and let go. we up high.
