Lyrics

[Intro]
Big smoke
SK level
Greaze!
Listen

[Chorus]
Like a bullet from a gun it burns
When you realise she was never your girl
It was just your turn
You got to face your demons, don't matter how much money you earn
Your niggas said 4L, but the shit got real and you weren't concerned
The same old story, the world spins round and round fam
Lessons have to get learned

[Verse]
Truth has to be told, I don't bend I don't fold
I lost count how many we sold
I went silver, I went gold
Then I went platinum so what's next?
Supermodels tryna sex, sending nudes on the text
Can't believe I used to be vex
See it's too easy to write a sad song about how my dad raise me
'Cause I'm looking in the mirror and my dad made me
A real top boy I just can't play the victim
Been living my life as a kingpin
I'm calm with the heat in the kitchen
I was a young boy mum told me what my name really means
And the power just kicked in
I found my way home then I saw my granddad's name on the gravestone, the same as mine
Already dead, nothing to fear, I been here from time
Chief SK sipping on palm wine
Everyday I laugh 'cause these niggas online
Another one, here today, gone tomorrow
Dick riding for some likes and a follow
Putting the work that's all you need to buss
Shoutout Lancey, Headie, and J Hus
Shout 67, oh you see them with us
We was on tour, bare weed on the bus
Feds outside, the bus has to push to the next city, gotta rush
Big plans getting discussed, freedom is a must
Fuck the police, tell em' eat my dust
'Cause still it ain't safe, not even in a world full of cops
I got bored of asking when is this hurt gonna stop
We don't want to conversate or confirm with the opps
It is what it is
Recently I've been learning a lot
All I know is there's no better feeling, than going home and seeing my little girl in the cot, so
This year we're done talking, forget the bagga chat, it's just action
Man are trolling to get a reaction
Everyday it's another distraction
Gotta fight temptation, can't get lost in the sauce
Have I got a heart, yeah, of course
But I had to put my feelings on pause

[Chorus]
'Cause like a bullet from a gun it burns
When you realise she was never your girl
It was just your turn
You got to face your demons, don't matter how much money you earn
Your niggas said 4L, but the shit got real and you weren't concerned
The same old story, the world spins round and round fam
Lessons have to get learned

[Outro]
Planet Earth
