lyrics

VERSE (ALI of NEW KINGZ):
Workin 9 to 5, keep your hope alive,
save the money, watch it pile up,
know my surface high, keep the fam alive,
crunchin numbers like I'm dial up,
know my surface high, better have a ladder,
better have a fuckin parachute, getting knocked down,
all I know is rock my crown...
like rockin this crown is all I know,
rockin this sound is all I know,
yup workin this grind is all I know,
well it all gon show cuz my city on fire,
bettin all my bros gon blow, not a race to the top cuz,
we be the ones now doin for the GO
what we holdin be golden,
deep in death, speak of death,
Every line, every step, watch me reach the peak,
take a breath never leave for death,
I watch it all align, stars shine like constellations,
doing what it takes, even if it's taken all of me,
destiny steady ringing my phone, picking up, it's calling me
mom's a prophet, ALI taking steps to this prophecy,
the squad with me
(yyeaaah)

HOOK (x2):
No I'm not sorry for the wait,
took time off to see do I got what it takes,
now I got the blueprints in my hands, this is faith,
do what it takes, finish my plate

VERSE 2 (SIR COLLINS):
Girl I can't meet, I gotta eat,
I been walking down the street with blisters on my feet,
you can hear my pain before I even speak!,
who am i supposed to be?
in life they give you choices, they say A, B, or C (A B or C)
but fuck that I never ever let a scantron define me
I always look forward, I could care less who is walking behind me,
I got my own name, C-O-double L-I-N-S digress,
progress through the stress that's building up in my chest
like momma, just wait for that check, oh
but, you could see me coming up though, ay,
you could see me coming up tho,
I'm running up the mountain, I could see the top,
even with my fuckin eyes closed

HOOK (x2):
No I'm not sorry for the wait,
took time off to see do I got what it takes,
now I got the blueprints in my hands, this is faith,
do what it takes, finish my plate
