Inhale the night fumes
feeling like the black Mark Zuckerberrrrg, tycoons
ride around the city of wind, we in the typhoon
trying to win, it's something weird about tonight's moon
it's not a cloud on it, like I's shone it
to remind me in my wiling, God's on it
I see it, it remind me what I should
but I'm thinking what I could do
PM demon, start talking to the good you
and have you talking reckless, text message
folk you left behind, when you first met Him
engine change, new oil with the liquid courage
return to old Bart Simpson days
deviant smile, hand out the window
other hand waiting for the reply
to tell your homies goodbye
the detour seem smart until you wake up and see more
you like Miss Krabapple, you woke up with Seymour
bad actions, bad decisions
both began with them bad intentions
but she was bad and you been so good for so long
deserve a little break cause you been so strong
that's the evil of the night like we wrote in that song
which song? The last song, saying I Want It All
and the curves on her frame could shame basketballs
now I can be Kobe here or pass to y'all

This one is for hood, who try to live strong
but break down after trying all night long
got our mind on the bump and grind all night long
but still be up in the pews on Sunday morning
(to the ones making plans they ain’t trying to dance)
To the ones sick of trying, just throw up ya hands and

and this an album only I coulda made
and I made it back in the 8th grade
when I started writing
and my girlfriend hated and scribbled on every page
I dumped her before gym, still dumping em to this day
but this the nighttime ain't it, as we ride
ironic the sun died, we turn into Mr. Hyde
gold butterflies turn back into caterpillars
phone by my side might as well be a trigger
oh well! said kings who settled on being killas
smoke cigars, pretending we all czars
so Stalin, so ignorant pretending we all-stars
is this a Friday or Vegas at All-Star?
Is that a rental or that's really y'all car?
young sister want advice? I tell em Love Who You Are
Striving to be Better, they hit me at all hours
saying I done wrong
I tell em live strong

To the ones trying hard not to end up lost
to the girls on the web trying to get on
to the men watching them, trying to get off
