ST:

I grew up in a middle class household
Food in my belly, with spare to keep the mouse full
Ugh, but my mom would keep the house cold
Save on heating so she could provide the South Pole
Never the flyest, I was on that low-cost airline
Seat in the back, next to the fryer
Situation's dire, when you got plenty to eat
But quantity ain't quality so I'd be called a liar
If I said it was all fun games, waiting for the wire
My father providing the way he can sitting in the fire
Dancing with the devil, cursing the messiah
Cause my mom pulled us apart without the use of pliers -
Plus I need a new supplier
My weed guy used to be the shit, now he's selling China - damn
How can we live this way?
I always keep it real - how can we live this way

HOOK:

How can we live this way?
I always keep it real - tell me how we live this way

Last year - I wasn't relevant
Next year - I probably won't be
Last year - I wasn't relevant
This year - that's what I'm gon' be

I feel a force, energy flows but no God
No fraud, long white beard with clothes on
More like protons, cells create patterns
As they repeat the knowledge gets so strong
I wanna prolong, my time on Earth but not at the cost of my dignity
It's not even about how they depicting me
That ain't shit to me, it's just that I control my life
And living it my way is the ultimate victory
Get that? If it's up to me I'll hit that
Blunt when I'm going in space in a dispatch
Get me in a suit - oxygen for a thin lapse
And just watch the stars as I get back
To energy, transferred to another cause
Another setting, another shape, some other laws
I wanna live that way
I always keep it real, and I wanna live that way

HOOK:

I wanna live that way
I always keep it real, and I wanna live that way
I wanna live that way
I always keep it real, and I wanna live that way

Last year - I wasn't relevant
Next year - I probably won't be
Last year - I wasn't relevant
This year - that's what I'm gon' be

.nox:

My radius is constant, circumference is monstrous
The meaning of my life reach Pi so it's perfect
Surrounded by the right peeps, nox deep
Woulda drank myself out, like "Fuck it if I breathe"
Deteriorate, steady rate, poundage of a heavyweight
"Wake the fuck up nigga, you need to elevate !"
Yeah -- so I pick where I left off
Ticked that my Bic couldn't fit what my chest poured
Breath holding cigarette, stress 'bout this damn court
Cuffs on my wrists made it real, I stepped forward
Yeah, and that's life for ya
Engineering kid, but one dumb nigga
Gotta walk 'fore you run, don't walk past your own
Nobody's clean as a nun, forgive and live strong
Yeah, I wanna live that way
Always keep it real and I live that way nigga

HOOK:

I wanna live that way
I always keep it real, and I wanna live that way
I wanna live that way
I always keep it real, and I wanna live that way

Last year - I wasn't relevant
Next year - I probably won't be
Last year - I wasn't relevant
This year - that's what I'm gon' be

Chibi:

Clownin up like jesters
Then askin fo sum justice
Like who u tryna fool yo when we laughin at ur gesture
No need na call no holy if ur problem be ur vessel
With no mo choice na lean, fists ready fo sum wrestle
Position, eyes straight lookin like a victor
Submitted to em laws of strenght, and pressured  by em clevers
But projettin of a warrior yet his bravery got evicted
So  standin at a lost clad, we hope dat he wuz gifted
Bu whats da point if granted, to live mah life ahead  of pain, as i be walkin miles with cocomilk n sandals
U know u had it simple when u speak o charm n bangle
But when da street collidin, u be hididin, 'hind a vessel
Straight up like a shooter, ask em ppl where da missile
And straight,At ur disposal, freshly cropped fo u nxt victim
Goin out fo broke, Nixon mask under me brethren
Its Chibi, ST, Liam, Inside the Circle
