Futuristic - Epiphany lyrics

[Intro: Futuristic] I had an epiphany I was repeating history I was doing everything I hated The weight on my shoulders I let it all get to me (I let it all get to me) I had an epiphany I just smiled at my enemies I was listening to everybody who was talking But never did sh** for me, yeah I had an epiphany I was looking at everybody else that's up in the industry They ain't as sick as me (they ain't as sick as me) I had an epiphany I was seeing somebody that never had no good intentions for me Now she missing me, yuh (now she missing me) [Verse 1: Futuristic] Moral of the story is that nobody did it for me Had to make a change (nah) I was living in the city with no scene I had a dream I had to make a lane (yup, yup) Always knew that I couldn't live off of minimum wage Ripping the pay stub I had a minimal taste for all the fame stuff But I got into the game without a cent to my name And now I'm ballin' like I'm in the NBA, bruh And I know I got a lot but I'm not content If they ask me to stop, I will not consent Never gonna let nobody block cause my shot to miss You can meet me at the top if you hop the fence And you climb the stairs And you fight the beast And you lose your way Then you find your peace And you do it sober Then you find a drink Then you spiral down And it all repeats And I always had a vision I could get it So I did it by my lonely I don't owe nobody nothing, never let nobody own me Got some money from the music, and I spend it on the homies But don't put nothin' before me, gave a whip to little Brody And I'm only getting started And I'm eating with the people that I starve with And my batteries, I had to recharge 'em I made an album but that sh** was garbage Yo, I was trapped in a gimmick I finally get it I'm here to make music that matters If I die, it'll all be alright ‘Cause the message I gave you will live for me after And my chapter will highlight a lifetime Of energy gave through a bright mind How you never had to stand on the sideline How you the guide to your own guidelines [Bridge: Futurisitic] That's an epiphany I had an epiphany, yeah That's an epiphany I had an epiphany, yeah [Verse 2: NF] I had an epiphany That I could make history That I could prove everyone wrong That told me I wasn't cut out for this music thing, yeah I had an epiphany What if I took my energy And used it on positive things in my life Instead of the people that lie to me, huh? Yeah, I had an epiphany That I could put all of my hurt into music And use it for people that might feel the same as me Yeah, I had an epiphany What if everyone knew my depression was worse than they thought? They probably gonna look at me differently Yo, this song got me going back, when I was a stupid kid Thinking maybe I could make it in the music biz And then I figured out the politics And realized that half of y'all don't even know what music is And going nowhere, I told 'em to get used to me Feels like I'm living in a movie scene A bunch of people trying to tell me how to act and breathe One thing I never let nobody ever do was tell me who to be I never got into the party scene Maybe I was just scared to drink ‘Cause addiction it runs in my family That's someone I was scared to be You're looking pitiful compared to me Since I can barely read All I wanted was somebody I could trust That I knew would keep it real with me Rap's always been a mirror for me That's when I figured out that maybe I'm the one that's gotta make it on my own, yeah, it's clear to see A lot of people think that what I'm doing is a gimmick Everything you hear me writing I've been living I ain't quitting, send the money to my family Try to show them that I miss them And I cherish every moment when I'm home and when I'm with them And this is the way that I feel In the industry of fakes trying to stay real In the industry of lames trying to get deals Lord knows imma get it, that's Meek Mill Yeah, I lay in my bed at night thinking “There's got to be more to me” I'm trying to pay off the mortgaging But the life of the people I love in the midst of it I've always thought that if I learn from mistakes that I'd make Even the losses are victories That's when it starts hitting me If you set your mind to it you can do anything [Outro: NF] That's an epiphany That's an epiphany, yeah I had an epiphany I had an epiphany, yeah
