BackWordz - Be Great lyrics

[Verse 1] They say follow your dreams, but what does that mean? Cause dreams only come to a sleeper Forget that, you need to wake up Keep grinding instead, keep that in your head Praying and hoping is not enough cause faith without works is dead [Pre-Chorus] Time's what you make of it, no need to wait for it Shut up get on your grind [Chorus] Get up and be great If I fail bro, that's all on me You can't stop me cause I'll be great You ain't gotta believe what I say It don't matter cause I'll be great Best bet's to get out of my way Tunnel vision I can't be swayed You can't stop be, cause I'll be great [Verse 2] Stop being envious of everybody that's around you You're not poor cause they're rich Realize this: It's not fair, get over it If you spent as much time working on your craft as you did complaining, well.. You wouldn't have the time or energy to be worried about everybody else If life is not in tact, complaining won't get that A complete waste of your time [Verse 3] Let me talk to 'em Why do you want to cry and complain? Why in the Hell are you on sidelines? Get in the Game! When it comes to my mind, it's all the way made If you think you're outworking me, then you are insane That's my attitude; stay in a battle mood Fear no man longitude or latitude Broke or well off.. seems that you had to choose But I ain't mad it you, so beast it like an animal [Chorus] Get up and be great If I fail bro, that's all on me You can't stop me cause I'll be great You ain't gotta believe what I say It don't matter cause I'll be great Best bet's to get out of my way Tunnel vision I can't be swayed You can't stop be, cause I'll be great [Verse 4] Maybe you knew me back when I was Flag waiving and g**ning from yours to my hood Driving my momma up a wall like it was all good If it was fighting involved, didn't hesitate to fall through it Maybe you knew me as YG Rippa When me and J Dunn would beef on you just a little But we knew we had to fiddle with, we were not happy innocents Had the upper hand cause we were literate Yet idiots would step up and get they dumb bu*ts bodied on microphones I earned my stripes cause I was nice, was hype when I was writing on the pad But if I had to fight then I could get my Viking on I'd supply the cake and J Dunn would slap the icing on I just so happen to be rapping since the age of 10 Like a God given talent prolly back to praising him Can't get pretend I'm new to this stuff cause I been doin' this bruh Don't be a fool get ripped up, you're cruising for bruisings mister? Wait, maybe you knew me back when I was grooving Me and the gig squad put on for the Dallas boogie And I had cameo up after cameo The biggest one being the Teach me how to dougie video Maybe you know me from college when I was running those track meets And I was actually a decent enough athlete to break a couple school records I'm proud of that joint Came a long way from g**ning up to that point Maybe you know me from my YouTube And all those vocal covers and music ventures I used to Or, Maybe you know me talking politics Talking ancap libertarianism, all of it But last, maybe you know me from my old band Not Leviathan, the Gods I left Fire From Not acting like a higher form, to hold my punch I had to be But now I'm in position to answer what you've been asking me We parted ways cause I didn't think we had foundation laid They wanted to tour just to do it, which was stupid , so I was not about that and I wouldn't allow that Cause I happen to grow up broke and I wasn't going back to that And that's the facts, we left on good terms Yea, but dang I would surely learn for the worse it took a turn Cause the fools try to replace me with some dude that would favor me I hate to be that guy but these lame babies shouldn't play me And they didn't even try to hide it you and I know The first song they tried to drop was a song that I wrote I record it before I left and that was just a sin to me They got some whack cat to try his hardest just to mimic me Copy appearance to the mannerism Still let em make it til I heard these weak misses were sneak dissing Gotta a lotta balls in it but I will have no part of it Face the fact, it's the opposite of what an artist is You are factory made and you gotta go to grave with that bro High side and act though, originality is what you lack so Tell ya kids that all your career is based a piggy back though "Oh he mad cause they got signed and BackWordz didn't," Shut up fool you must be an idiot, oblivious Don't make a fool out yourself cause you not real Over the past year we done past like 5 deals And now we in a situation that is helping me We own our own publishing and this is still a self release And BackWordz is a brand which was hard to get We didn't sign a deal we were looking for a partnership Now we gotta team and it's all business I say if you with it, then you with it The number of views can be at 20 million or a lot less But we ain't sell our souls in the process I'll take that I done said what I had to say So let's get back to being great You gotta get out there You're running yourself into the ground You gotta move on now and get up and get out You can find your way some how You gotta get out there You're running yourself into the ground You gotta move on now and get up and get out You can find your way some how You can find your way some how You can find your way some how Be great Be great Be great Be great [Chorus] Get up and be great If I fail bro, that's all on me You can't stop me cause I'll be great You ain't gotta believe what I say It don't matter cause I'll be great Best bet's to get out of my way Tunnel vision I can't be swayed You can't stop be, cause I'll be great
