  • [Verse 1: Ab-Soul]
    I know exactly how it is to feel like no one cares
    About the hard work you put in but who said life was fair?
    It sure wasn't me I take the bitter with the sweet
    And boil it in the pot make it hard to eat
    I said If I'm going to play I'm going to play for keeps
    Raise stakes, take stage, speak my peace
    Make my pay, take my lady on a date
    Send my parents on a cruise - living
    Somewhere with a killer view
    Oh the irony I spew
    But for now the studio couches gonna have to do
    I ain't going to take what I ain't earned myself
    Foolish pride
    That's what you need to survive
    It's do or die
    So step aside I don't mean no trouble
    Just want to be someone that CJ could look up to
    Oh, and just so you know
    When I'm on the road I'm at the travel lodge not the W

    [Hook: Ab-Soul & BJ the Chicago Kid]
    Almost there, almost there, almost there
    The finish line is in sight but I'm almost there
    Almost there, almost there
    Almost there, almost there, almost there
    Even if the sun don't shine the sun don't shine

    [Verse 2: Ab-Soul]
    Somebody asked me, what you mean by longterm mentality, actually?
    So I had to break it down:
    Don't get caught up in the now
    Focus on the years abroad
    Cause today you're here but tomorrow you could be gone
    Singing the same old song
    And who's the place to blame on?
    Other than you
    Whatever it is you do
    From slanging eight balls to graduating from school
    Just gotta see it all before it happens
    I ain't saying see a psychic I'm just saying have a
    Idea of what you're accomplishing
    You'll have a greater chance to accomplish it
    You know a little strategy, premeditation
    Wins races nine times out of ten
    As if losing's ever an option
    Had to bust my own bubble I really thought I was poppin'
    (Not quite)


    [Verse 3: Ab-Soul]
    Just know your future's right around the corner
    Opportunity galore for ya
    More and more you'll start to see it's no limit to what you can be
    In any event, eventually
    Treat your first like your last time
    Cause it might be your last time
    That's what I learned last time
    Look forward to looking forward in my pastime
    You just letting time pass like "that's fine", as wine
    Contrary to popular belief, I want the peace
    They say I'm headed hellbound at God's speed
    Gazunteight, or bless me if you like
    As I, put my faith in this bud and budlight
    I've been patiently waiting for a track to explode on
    Talk my shit, drop my load on
    Hold on, I don't think you know how close I am
    By the time this song's done I'm already there
