lyrics

We all want the lifestyle with finer things
The girls want the pearls and the diamond rings
But me I want the stage on a world tour
So if you want it go and get it cause the world's yours

Come and hang with the crew, the nights just beginning
I stay connected with my people like a subdivision
I love the outdoors especially in late nights
I wouldn't miss what's in front of me like brake lights
You see the moon up in space, that's astrology
I'm shooting for the stars all you gotta do is follow me
People hating cause we get paid for shows
Come on, we been blessed we spit flames like pros
I'm on the back deck, writing to get a fat cheque
Knowing that it's many miles away like the Aztecs
Let it be known, I rap and devour
The passion is ours, I been at it for hours
I treat my latest cd as a trophy
You know me, I got em hooked like dope fiends on codeine
We're rap stars, kush smoking in my backyard
I'm building my image and I don't gotta try to act hard

We all want the lifestyle with finer things
The girls want the pearls and the diamond rings
But me I want the stage on a world tour
So if you want it go and get it cause the world's yours

I'm a blessing in disguise they don't know it yet
Living everyday like there's no tomorrow with no regrets
I see a lot of people hating on The Faculty
But if that means winning I want everybody mad at me
Check the status bro, yeah it’s my status quo
I left some people in the past because they had to go
Hard work is a language I speak fluent
But people give up cause it's harder to keep moving
I'm underrated cause most of you never heard of me
Get me recording I'll turn the track into a murder scene
I'll get to the straight point, I won't sugar coat it
The truth hurts but I always do it in the moment
It isn't bothering me, I'm not starting a beef
So let's smoke one and call it a week
Everyday changes, I'm feeling anxious
I just might wake up one and be famous

We all want the lifestyle with finer things
The girls want the pearls and the diamond rings
But me I want the stage on a world tour
So if you want it go and get it cause the world's yours
