lyrics

Hook
I ain’t claiming I’m the best but,
I ain’t claiming I’m the worst
Find me claiming just a step up,
find me waiting, weighing words

What sounds like a plain spoke, aim low, got the bars stacked high, better change flows
pour panko, crumbs that you follow with a capo, eye to tomorrow, fickle feigned hopes
shit I'd borrow from the bank, but the bank broke, gained karma today, wore the same clothes
trade a name, leave a mark, but it ain’t show, wrong color paint, window panes, staining baseboards
they playing with a full deck, gotta phase right in with my whole head, no flex
I’m changing the game, better go check, I’ve been playing with the same set of dope chess
both sides are the same, and they know best, no place for complaints, let it blow west
I'm an arm and a leg in a hope chest, slow down, we can pray for the hopeless

I ain’t claiming I’m the best
I ain’t claiming I’m the worst
Find me claiming just a step up,
find me waiting, weighing words

onomatopoeia spit a bang-bang passive, let me lay where I lay, finding peace in the past tense
chasing the wave, it’ll fade, finna chastise, hate that I hate what remains of these assets
facts set, just a facet, done more than a fashion of fractions,
summing the half-wits, son of an average, mean moving past it, looking for the passions, I speak,
with a beat, be the last lived, dry feet, can’t swim with a catfish,
got me, with a laugh and an Atlas, dive in high seas on a set for the map-less,
that list, left in a boat, show up at the last min, fake your own growth, fresh as a fast pitch
That’s this, ex of the dome, exit blasting, from the home plate, lemme obey, the masses

I ain’t claiming I’m the best
I ain’t claiming I’m the worst
Find me claiming just a step up,
find me waiting, weighing words
