lyrics

I'm thinking of suing the Swiss government lately,
Cos turning on the LHC is how I make beats
I made peace with the me from my past,
now I'm back I'm a beast - I can sleep when I pass
Until that moment I'm an omen, I'm a horror story
I've got today, somebody worry bout tomorrow for me
I'm done with projecting all my wishes
Right now is the only time that I can make a difference
No more excuses. No more feeling useless, over thinking every single movement
Cos you'd know that I'm worth respect
If you'd heard all the work on my last cassette
Now it's on to the next - yes, no rest
No stress, feeling blessed to be taking breaths
I took steps to get some help
Now it's me being me - never somebody else

[Hook]
It took a minute just to take my time
Another minute for some peace of mind
So I can get back on these feet of mine
Right here is where I've got to stay

It took a minute just to learn to breathe
Another minute tryna earn some peace
So I can get what I deserve at least
Right here is where I've got to stay

I say the stuff they never will
I stay forever ill, blessed with heavy skill, while the level they're on is feather still
Free speech and I'm going demo crazy
I started cleaning up and now I'm busy renovating
Elevate - higher planes like I borrowed a jet
Was sick of being sick to death and hedging all of my bets
What you expect? I was dead last year
Now I'm starting every January as if it's my last year
Full steam, put in all that I got
Never had nothing to piss in so this thing is my pot
I used to agonise - no ones gonna listen, this'll never sell
But I was only missing recognition from myself
Now I make what I want, I don't care if they like it
I get out what I put in when I write it
And that's a lot, no half measures
Every day is day one - the start of forever

[Hook]
It took a minute just to take my time
Another minute for some peace of mind
So I can get back on these feet of mine
Right here is where I've got to stay

It took a minute just to learn to breath
Another minute tryna earn some peace
So I can get what I deserve at least
Right here is where I've got to stay

I can't make the same mistakes again
I can't go back and change
I wont make the same mistakes again
As long as I stay right here
