lyrics

Cold Currents
Who are you? Who do you belong to? My point of view is inside out. Whether I think you're hot or not either, I might sweat but I will not catch a fever. Now you could have my attention but I'm still at ease. A Alikes, B boys, CBs, DJs, ladies, promoters, emcees, producers, labels, fans, families, friends, frenemies and not so friendlies. I show love to all cause that's all I be. But please don't get it twisted. Cause Imma be me. From knowledge to born Allah to zig zag zee. “Realizing the realism in life in actuality”? Don't give a fuck about your status or your salary. If you're not self aware that's a tragedy. Knowledge of self is not an act or a strategy. The essence of existence is essentially existential. A pleasant way on an instrumental to tell you that it is what it is. Open to more tiers just by handling biz. Imma water these flowers. Combine this flour with water. Kneed that dough? Bake that bread. You wanna get money from me or make money with me? Come and work next to me get some sweat equity. For those that would rather compete as if their cipher's already complete? I aint agin ya I'm for ya. For those that wanna wait and see to hop on when it's a fait accompli? It's aint that I abhor ya, but I must ignore ya.
That’s why I’m staying inside. “Wash my wears in Tide ‘cause it’s too damn cold out, Tide.” That’s why I’m staying inside. “Wash my wears in Tide ‘cause it’s too damn cold out, Tide.” That’s why I’m staying inside. “Wash my wears in Tide ‘cause it’s too damn cold out, Tide.” That’s why I’m staying inside. “Wash my wears in Tide ‘cause it’s too damn cold out, Tide.”
I heard the best revenge is living well. In that case I hope you get your big payback. The honest truth is that i only want the best for you. Ironically I made myself a hot mess for you. And let you go because my best laid plans were foiled. Bent twig crooked tree now the fruit's spoiled. I pulled the trigger got to hold down the recoil. And bite the bullet cause there's no way to put it back. That's why I never talk gunplay or flash iron. My Nana said don't even show it till you're bout to use it. I know better than to use it unless I have to. It must a been life or death for me to blast you. You wanted till death waiting for me to ask you. I could be down for that, but not because I have to. See I would never jump the gun and half ass you. And not before I have a chance to do the math to, see how things add up for it to last through, the hard times when the wagons get circled. So tight that nothing outside can penetrate. Can we keep each other hot enough to circulate? And stay cool enough to let each other ventilate?… Meant when I said I never wanted you to be anything other than who you truly are. The fine print is that it doesn't guarantee you're what I need. Close but no cigar. I'll guess I’ll simply love you from afar.
That’s why I’m staying inside. “Wash my wears in Tide ‘cause it’s too damn cold out, Tide.” That’s why I’m staying inside. “Wash my wears in Tide ‘cause it’s too damn cold out, Tide.” That’s why I’m staying inside. “Wash my wears in Tide ‘cause it’s too damn cold out, Tide.” That’s why I’m staying inside. “Wash my wears in Tide ‘cause it’s too damn cold out, Tide.”
