Lets go y'all

These people are running off at the mouth
Tryin' to convince me that I'm running on empty
Tryin' to convince themselves that the record with Jay was a fluke
That the record that I'm makin' is a mistake
And I can't take this
Lemme tell you where I'm at with this
You bastards are gonna have to take back that shit
I'm not plastic and fake
When I make tracks I take facts and lay them out for the masses
You assholes are gonna see soon that I'm not playin'
Start askin' me the names that I'm not sayin'
But I'm tryin' to be bigger than the bickerin'
Bigger than the petty name callin'
Under the breath talkin'
Rumors and labels and categorization
I'm like a struggling doctor, No patients
But you can say what you want about me
Keep talkin' while I'm walkin' away

You can say what you have to say
'Cause my mind's made up anyway
I'm taking the high road going above you
This is the last time that I'm gonna trust you
You can say what you have to say
'Cause my mind's made up anyway
All that bullshit you talk might work a lot
But it's not gonna work today

You people are running off at the mouth
Tryin' to make me take myself off safety
Tryin' to make my friends turn their backs on the team we built
Buildin' up some mistaken information
And I can't take this
Lemme spell it out plain for you
Angry groups complain about the things we do
I'm not changing direction, I'm stepping my game up
Maintainin' my name, the same way I came up
You're gonna see that I'm not playin'
Start asking the names that I'm not sayin'
But I'm tryin' not to mention the names of people who wanna siphon attention
You like the hype but pretendin' you're part of the picture won't pass
You're like a high school dropout, no class
You can say what you want about me
Keep talkin' while I'm walkin' away, bitch

You can say what you have to say
'Cause my mind's made up anyway
I'm taking the high road going above you
This is the last time that I'm gonna trust you
You can say what you have to say
'Cause my mind's made up anyway
All that bullshit you talk might work a lot
But it's not gonna work today

Why does it always have to be
Somebody's always watching me
All I really need is some room to breathe
Is anybody out there listening?
'Cause I can't stand to keep this in
All I really want, I'll say it again

You can say what you have to say
'Cause my mind's made up anyway
I'm taking the high road going above you
This is the last time that I'm gonna trust you
You can say what you have to say
'Cause my mind's made up anyway
All that bullshit you talk might work a lot
But it's not gonna work today
