[Intro]
The main focus for my music, whether it be the production or the lyrics is my travels
我音乐创作的重点,无论是编曲制作还是歌词,都主要来源于我个人的旅行经历

The outside environment really plays a huge part in what I’m making
外面的世界和周围的环境对于我的创作有非常重要的影响

I write all my rhymes outside, you know
我所有的歌词写作都是在户外完成的

Every city I go to, I set up my studio in the hotel
我去过的每一座城市,我都会在宾馆房间里架设临时录音室

I make beats during the day
白天我会制作出歌曲的伴奏

I start coming up the ideas, and I just hit the streets and start walking
当我来了一些灵感之后,我就会走上街头

And whatever I see, it really kinda inspires me
而我在街头的所见所闻,都成为了我创作灵感的来源

It may not be literally, but it always finds its way into my music
也许并不是某些特定的事物激发了我,但最终这一切都会在我的音乐中展现

The streets and citys are my main inspirations
一座座城市和一条条街道就是我创作的源泉

(Verse 1)
I never asked to be born, and death’s no question
我从未强求要来到人世,但离开却是命中注定

The sun’s still shining off the same old lessons
日复一日,阳光依旧洒落人间

Then why does life feel like an educated guess and
为何人生的前景依然让我捉摸不透

My thoughts are like meals I’m a sucker for the seconds 【Food for thought,Seconds指吃空盘子之后再次装满食物】
我的想象力就像食物一样营养丰富,迫不及待再次拓展我的思维

Impressions got a lot of us stressing
过于在乎他人对我们的印象,让我们担上重负

But how we are perceived is more about a reflection
但我们所获得的回馈,都取决于之前的付出的努力

The reception is warm that I receive
我所到之处得到温暖的回应

Which leads me to believe these hoes like what I heave
使我开始确信我的音乐能让听众产生共鸣

Tall women in heels, tour money and deals, man
那些穿着高跟鞋的女人们,各项演出收入和赞助商合约

Off the no bull I like all money for real
说句真心话,我也无法抗拒金钱的诱惑

More time abroad and less time at home
在海外巡演的时间多过陪伴家人

Less time for broads and more time in zones
没工夫搭理那些妞,我更多的是沉浸在自己的世界里

Yeah, I’m in it while flying out of another one 【巧妙地利用time zone】
当我飞出又一个时区,我又一次陷入了沉思

This is a new beginning, I’m climbing out of the other one
这是一次全新的开始,我再一次爬出了低谷

Cuz the dream feel realer than it ever been
因为这是我的梦想离现实最近的一次

And I was aiming high like a nigga being president
我之前是如此好高骛远,仿佛当上国家元首才满足我的诉求

The possibilities of that are seeming pretty evident
显而易见这些幼稚的遐想是多么不切实际

So being self employed is not seeming like a definite
坚持地下音乐和独立事业,或许并不像是最有把握的打算

But staying that way is what I’m Fucking with
但这就是我选择要继续前行的道路

And like minded people are the only ones I’m messing with
那些志同道合的挚友,才是我唯一愿意相伴的人们

(Hook)
Ayo, this so real
这一切如此真实

Not knowing what’s ahead but I’mma go there still

But I know, I’m attracted to the lights in the distance
但我知道前方远处的灯光吸引着我,让我舍不得回头

The closer that I get and the brighter my wish gets
我离这光芒越近,我的愿望就更接近现实

Excited by the risk and the chances I’m taking
每一次冒险和尝试都让我激动不已

Not sure what I’m putting my faith in but I’mma be alright
虽不确定我的信仰在何方,但一切都会好起来

(Verse 2)
I’m trying to get mine in this life time
我试图在有限的人生里活出自我的价值

The after life is much further in the pipeline
总以为来世太过遥远,就好像永远不会到来

I’m inclined to believe that but truth is
我也曾有同样的误解,但现实却是如此残酷

That for death, any moment is the right time
死神没有假日,每一个时刻都可能会出现在你眼前

余下的人生我也无法预测,没人能够知晓

The recipe ain’t the best, to make it though is our quest
他人的秘方和诀窍不一定就是最好的,顺利通关才是我们的目的

And if you choose to accept, the meaning of life is yes
当你选择去接受这些挑战,才会发现人生真正的意义

Cause only God knows, those of us in the flesh, get the privilege of test
因为只有上天知道生命的答案,活在人世间的我们才享有探索真谛的特权

Some will fail and some will pass
总有人会金榜题名,总有人会失利

We all get the same grade though when we run the path
所有人生的结局都一样,无论各自有着何种经历

But how you grade yourself is the mark that matters the most
不在乎别人的议论,只有你对自己的评分才最有价值

To separate the heart of the strong and the battered folks

Have a dose
自食其果
