Dan Bull - Sellout lyrics

[Verse 1] In year 7 at school I remember that all I aimed to be Was a professional rapper, gamer or comedian Well guess what, mate? Today I'm all three of them And we're saving up for payments to replace my faulty eardrums I aspired to be "Eminem meets Monty Python" With enough cash stockpiled to live my life on And now I'm getting there I tell myself: "nice one" While trolls send descriptions of the illness I should die from Hello, is anybody home? Turn the lights on Why do you think that you can tell me what to do in my song? Don't construct a moral code that you expect me to adhere to You're a mere shrew in a field of views So I can't even hear you Your opinion doesn't mean a thing to me If I'd have listened to it, I wouldn't be in this industry Wouldn't have made the friends I share a pa**ion with Travel with, make videos and have a stack of fun just rapping with [Hook] To make a living playing games? Hell yeah! To make a living saying things? Hell yeah! To start my day by writing rhymes? Hell yeah! To never work a 9 to 5? Hell yeah! To be my own manager? Hell yeah! To get rich off what I did when I was amateur? I'm the one that's doing things, the rest of you are talking How can I have sold out? I never bought in [Verse 2] I rarely make a love song, prefer dropping lovebombs But when it's time to spar, I'm the first to put the gloves on Life is a prize fight for a shine of the limelight And I'm loving every round of it, the Mike Tyson of my life I remember dreading a 9 to 5, suit and tie Talk about doing time, this was do or die Socially acceptable type of suicide Why should you or I let a single other human being rule our life Life is an RPG, and we need more than XP So larp with me; I won't charge a fee if you impress me Do it deftly and there's no end to what you can get free I love to chase success, I state that expressly I've never compromised my mission or integrity My mission is to do whatever I think's best for me Eventually I'll write lyrics on flipping everything Meanwhile I'll take a check to give the list a bit of editing [Hook] To make a living playing games? Hell yeah! To make a living saying things? Hell yeah! To start my day by writing rhymes? Hell yeah! To never work a 9 to 5? Hell yeah! To be my own manager? Hell yeah! To get rich off what I did when I was amateur? I'm the one that's doing things, the rest of you are talking How can I have sold out? I never bought in [Verse 3] I'm not the Wolf of Wall Street I'm just a Bull that's balls deep In every opportunity for improvement I see before me A song with product placement creates a complication Even when accompanied by an honest statement And if I want to be an honored statesman I've got to make it proper blatant So I'm only going to say it once: My songs are entertainment, they're not a concrete statement And if you take a rap track as fact, then you are mistaken I'm not endorsing sh**, unless I say it's good I never have and never will tell a fib in exchange for paper Perhaps your perspective would be turned round If you'd a**essed the prospective sh** that I had turned down I've spurned thousands of pounds from powerful people 'cause I found out just how they're treating creatures and it isn't peaceful So, to all my critics and my haters, God bless I'm not a sellout, nah, I'm a success [Hook] To make a living playing games? Hell yeah! To make a living saying things? Hell yeah! To start my day by writing rhymes? Hell yeah! To never work a 9 to 5? Hell yeah! To be my own manager? Hell yeah! To get rich off what I did when I was amateur? I'm the one that's doing things, the rest of you are talking How can I have sold out? I never bought in
