How many cars can I buy till I run out of drive

How much drive can I have until I run out of road

How much road can they pave until I run out of land

How much land can it be until I run in the ocean

Niggas go with the motions and all the plans

See I was never into the beaches and all the sands

See I was in the woods with flowers rainbows and posies

Falling out of my pocket but ya'll want to know

If I swam to cool down

 

How much cooler can I get until I run out of fans

How many fans can I have till they turn on the AC

If the AC blow up then I'm TNT I'm gone

 

I'm gone and I'm finished

And I ain't seen my friends in a minute

 

Guess that nothing lasts forever

 

No nothing lasts forever

Nothing sticks together

 

Sick of sitting in doubt

 

Please let me figure this out

 

Shoutout to the girls that I lead on

For occasional head and always keeping my bed warm

And trying they hardest to keep my head on straight

And keeping me up enough 'til I had thought I was airborne

How many raps can I write 'til I get me a chain

How many chains can I wear 'til I'm considered a slave

How many slaves can it be 'til nat turner arrives

How many riots can it be 'til them black lives matter

When niggas click clack splatter pew pew that n***a

Life a game of basketball you better shoot that n***a

'Cause if that cop got tricky he better pull

'Cause when I get pulled over I usually play it cool

'Cause I know what I'm driving is usually paid in full

And my ego and possessions will not let me be one

Be cause I got a mansion my mansion got some rooms

And rooms got some windows and my windows got some views

And views get some stairs and my backyard does too

And if you walk to the bottom you'll probably see a pool

You better not drown keep them ten toes up

'Cause if those ten toes down that mean that you f**ked up

And that's what I swim in

 

And if I drown and don't come back

 

Who's gonna know baby then I'll know

And if I crash and don't come back

 

Who's gonna know baby then I'll know

And if I fall and don't come back

 

Who's gonna know baby then I'll know

I'm wondering if I don't come back

 

Baby then I'll know

 

Don't come back

 

Don't come back

 

Don't come back

 

Don't come back
