Yeah, yeah Roc-A-Fella

We invite you to, something epic y’all know?

Where we hustle out of a sense of, hopelessness

Sort of a desperation

Through that desperation, we ‘come addicted

Sorta like the fiends we accustomed to serving

But we feel we have nothing to lose

So we offer you, well, we offer our lives (right)

What do you bring to the table?

While I’m watching every nigga watching me closely

My shit is butter for the bread they wanna toast me

I keep my head, both of them where they supposed to be

Hoes’ll get you sidetracked then clap from close feet

I don’t sleep, I’m tired, I feel wired like Codeine, these days

A brother gotta admire from four fiends away

My pain wish it was quick to see, from selling ‘Caine

‘Til brains was fried to a fricassee, can’t lie

At the time it never bothered me, at the bar

Getting my thug on properly, my squad and me

Lack of respect for authority, laughing hard

Happy to be escaping poverty, however brief

I know this game got valleys and peaks, expectation

For dips, four precipitation we stack chips, hardly

The youth I used to be, soon to see a mill’in

No more, Big Willie my game has grown prefer you call me William

Illin’ for revenues, Rayful Edmonds like

Channel 7 news, ’round seven jewels, hand getting the mic

Forgetting all I ever knew, convenient amnesia

I suggest you call my lawyer, I know the procedure

Lock my body, can’t trap my mind, easily

Explain why we adapt to crime

I’d rather die enormous than live dormant that’s how we on it

Live at the main event, I bet a trip to Maui on it

Presidential suites my residential for the weekend

Confidentially speaking in codes since I sense you peeking

The INXS rental, don’t be fooled my game is mental

We both out of town dog, what you trying to get into?

Viva, Las Vegas, see ya, later at the crap tables

Meet me by the one that starts a G up

This way no fraud Willie’s present gambling they re-up

And we can have a pleasant time, sipping margaritas

Yeah, can I live?

Can I live?

My mind is infested, with sick thoughts that circle

Like a Lexus, if driven wrong it’s sure to hurt you

Dual level like duplexes, in unity, my crew and me

Commit atrocities like we got immunity

You guessed it, manifest it in tangible goods

Platinum Rolexed it, we don’t lease

We buy the whole car, as you should

My confederation, dead a nation, explode!

On detonation, overload the mind of a said patient

When it balls to steam, it comes to it

We all fiends gotta do it, even righteous minds go through this

True this, the streets school us to spend our money foolish

Bond with jewelers and, watch for intruders

I stepped it up another level, meditated like a Buddhist

Recruited lieutenants with ludicrous, dreams of

Getting cream let’s do this, it gets tedious

So I keep one eye open like, C-B-S, ya see me

Stressed right? Can I live?

Can I live?

Can I live?

Can I live?

Roc-A-Fella y’all
