[Hook]

I tried to get cake but couldn't get that quick, so I tried to get a raise
I'm never gonna get that great that quick, so I gotta get away
Living my life on the road, I don't know where I should stay
I been waiting all this time, only to watch it slip away

Slip away, slip away
Watching time slip away (4x)

[Verse 1]

I’m an expert in wasting time, hate it when you’re wasting mine
It’s fine when I do it to myself cause I know I’m way behind
Living jaded lives, the lies, a jail that stay in mind
The jealousy a genocide, we failing as the days are flying
My pockets dry as the desert’s tide
We used to see, now we sailing blind
Can’t even look to the sky all I see is light
Where the cities rise, all we find is that hell is nice
My pocket full of time, how I’m spending mine
I’m dancing with demons, a waltz with a genius
Got ‘em considering Jesus, my fingers crossed when preaching
And defeat ain’t an option cause the cost is all these hours needed
To proceed with leaving a trace up on this region
You buy minutes for your phone, then you spend the time
We try to clone, live a second time,
Get along, wish for better times
Yet all along, we just losing time
That’s the cost of life, s’what we later find
Often when it’s too late and we looking into Satan’s eye
I be staying high, think I’m on some fly shit
On autopilot with no target, or a license
Till my mind shift, and I get that I’m the one driving, damn

[Hook]

I tried to get cake but couldn't get that quick, so I tried to get a raise
I'm never gonna get that great that quick, so I gotta get away
Living my life on the road, I don't know where I should stay
I been waiting all this time, only to watch it slip away

Slip away, slip away
Watching time slip away (4x)

[Verse 2]

I’m counting minutes, hours in my bowels
Got a shot, only one bullet left up in the barrel
Never get a second when the bells ring like a carrol
Nothing left but death, unless you lived life like a pharaoh
Everyday I wake I know I’m closer to the end
Life’s a labyrinth and we all figure out the trends
Some be getting lost, or die jumping up the fence
But we figure out the cost only when it’s time to land
And it’s high, so we lie, think we understood the plan
Feel we starting five, but soon end warming up the bench, what a life
I’m alive, but I’m getting out of hand
Like a fly ball flying off, going out the stands, grand slam
And I’m running up the bases, going home
Thinking everybody waiting for me at the plate
But I’m fucking up my greatness just by moving on
We all potential till it’s gone just like our heads
Cause we all crazy, all lazy, they made us all pray for them clicks
So I spend my life wavy, with a fine lady, cause only time counts when it ends, shit

[Hook]

I tried to get cake but couldn't get that quick, so I tried to get a raise
I'm never gonna get that great that quick, so I gotta get away
Living my life on the road, I don't know where I should stay
I been waiting all this time, only to watch it slip away

Slip away, slip away
Watching time slip away (4x)
