  • [Intro]
    Shoot for the moon
    Even if you miss
    You'll be almost a star

    Shoot for the moon
    Even if you miss
    You'll be almost a star

    Shoot for the moon
    Even if you miss
    You'll be

    [Verse 1: Ab-Soul]
    If you ain't got a dollar to your name
    Can you maintain?
    Are you lost, are all your thoughts
    On the same train?
    I been ridin it, doubt
    Despite the amount
    I've yet to acquire
    In my checking account
    They checkin me out
    They peepin my game
    I paid my dues
    I even kept my receipt and my change
    My life is like a movie
    If Siskel hate it then sue me
    Fuck a Maybach, I'm straight in the back of this hooptie
    It started out a hobby, became my life
    Left my emotions, lonesome, hence the pain I write
    Some call it therapy
    Some call it rap music
    I call it hip-hop
    No, no
    No trap music
    You never seen me heat the pot
    To whip the rock
    You never seen me creepin down your block
    With the Glock
    You never seen no diamonds in my chain
    Or in my watch
    You never seen me in a G5
    Or on a yacht
    But picture that

    [Hook: Ab-Soul]
    Picture this
    Picture being poor
    Picture being rich
    Picture having more
    Picture not having shit
    Picture that
    What a sight to see
    Picture you, picture me, picture us, picture we
    Together at the top
    Where we should be

    [Verse 2: Ab-Soul]
    Speaking of being at the top (Champagne, bottoms up)
    I take that back, cause matter of fact
    This E and J
    Dollar shot
    Is hittin the spot
    Like a rave
    My real niggas give me props
    Cause I ain't afraid to say
    What I am and what I am not
    You had her not
    I had like seven dollars knowin I'mma drop five
    On that session
    As soon as A-chizzle hit the block
    Chocolate swisher burn slow
    Though I hope it never stop
    So I can get high
    And accomplish my endeavors
    Niggas pullin up in benzes, tellin me that I'm the one
    I'm guessin when my clock climaxes then my time'll come
    I never shot a gun
    But I be killin all y'all raps
    Cause all y'all wack
    I be joggin on all y'all tracks
    I mean so many lines that
    I could call you all back, yeah
    I could send you all a fax, with all facts
    Budget tighter than my bitch's all black bra strap
    Grab a digital camera
    And
    Picture that

    [Hook: Ab-Soul]
    Picture this
    Picture being poor
    Picture being rich
    Picture having more
    Picture not having shit
    Picture that
    What a sight to see
    Picture you, picture me, picture us, picture we
    Together at the top
    Where we should be

    [Interlude]
    Shoot for the moon
    Even if you miss
    You'll be almost a star

    Shoot for the moon
    Even if you miss
    You'll be almost a star

    Shoot for the moon
    Even if you miss
    You'll be

    [Verse 3: Ab-Soul]
    In the presence of my gifted ass
    Incredible gift of gab
    Don't have a cent to spare
    But pull up a chair, I'll take you back
    To where my Christmases was full of gifts
    I surely had
    Left Santa milk and cookies
    (We miss you Bernie Mac)
    Left him a letter
    And what do you know, he even wrote my back
    I don't remember what it said
    But the point is that
    Soon as I had to take the role for my own acts
    It seemed as though, all my presents started gradually turnin into coal
    I graduated with a car
    Four years later that motherfucker's stuck in park
    I missed the days we cut through the alley to the limo park
    Or further than that
    Nick at Nite, Are you Afraid of the Dark?
    I keep these memories on my mind
    Cause they define me like Dictionary.com
    Bliss kisses ignorance
    Pay them unless
    Your intelligent
    And her pussy be wet as shit
    You would come in a flash
    Please hold the flash
    But picture that

    [Hook: Ab-Soul]
    Picture this
    Picture being poor
    Picture being rich
    Picture having more
    Picture not having shit
    Picture that
    What a sight to see
    Picture you, picture me, picture us, picture we
    Together at the top
    Where we should be

    [Javonte]
    Photogenic I are
    No need to be camera shy
    Hand on the bible, I ain't tellin a lie
    We only got one, so I'm livin my life

    Photogenic I are
    No need to be camera shy
    Remember where I been, where I'm going
    And I only got one, so I'm livin my life
