lirik lagu in the mean time – delon ellis

Loading...

this is plan a, already been through plan b
didn’t want that, honestly it just ain’t me
was a fall back couldn’t see to plan c
always saw past what i didn’t want to be
but i had to have something in the mean time, even though i knew it really didn’t feel right
and my family said they really couldn’t see why, i left it all, keep telling me to be wise

working off passion, that be without question
ain’t claiming no talent, i work on this endless
i made it a habit, turned to obsession
stuck in a bracket, i had to digress
put words into action, had to finesse it
i picked up the traction, learned by no lessons
the money been absent, ain’t talking no flexing
ain’t counting my dollars i’m counting my blessings

every spare dollar that i ever made, put a studio sp*ce at my mommas place
learned the whole game like it be a trade, writing through the night, working in the day
had a far sight vision that i had to aim, gotta keep my heart driven putting on my name
going hard from a distance, hard to keep it all persistent when no body wanna listen, ain’t no body f*cking with it, feeling silly n*gga

put my money where my mouth is i couldn’t buy a grill so i went and bought a mic to record what i write
sick of coming up short, sick of wanting way more, sick of working like a slave, making someone less poor
sick of sacrificing time, give it back take your job
that be all we really got, they ain’t taking none of mine
got a vision of my life, i’m addicted to the grind
had the stars all align, how i knew i got to shine
in the mean time i gotta be broke (be broke)
in the mean time i gotta keep woke (keep woke)
in the mean time i gotta see the green light i know i gotta keep focused (god d*mn i know)
in the mean time i gotta keep hoping (keep hoping)
in the mean time i gotta be potent (be potent)
in the mean time i gotta be the mean guy i know i gotta keep flowing (god d*mn i know)

put the pain to paper, felt the rain the break up
vented out through a couple pads
had to change my way up, in the game or stay stuck, doubled down just to run it back
made my lane, i paved up my terrain this ain’t luck, since a child ain’t believe in that
don’t want no fame cos fake love be what’s aimed i can’t trust, what they say cos it be all cap

but i got my raps perfected, when i snap it’s endless
just a fraction of my max would have you clap tremendous
i ain’t playing like i ain’t about to smash some records
be the greatest i be talking future past or present
done my laps, invested in my craft, projected number one draft i ain’t gotta act respected
planed attack, iv penned it, now it’s class in session
come with everything they lack, why i ain’t back at second

but it’s hard to see hope when the dream it ain’t paying yet
hard to be told what i believe ain’t making sense
hard to see a road when i’m the only one paving it
hard to leave a zone when i be focused on taking steps
pardon me i know i gotta be low for a minute (for a minute)
i know i gotta revoke for a minute (for a minute)
i know i gotta devote what i’m feeling
pardon me i know i gotta be broke for a minute, i know
in the mean time i gotta be broke (be broke)
in the mean time i gotta keep woke (keep woke)
in the mean time i gotta see the green light i know i gotta keep focused (god dam i know)
in the mean time i gotta keep hoping (keep hoping)
in the mean time i gotta be potent (be potent)
in the mean time i gotta be the mean guy i know i gotta keep flowing (god d*mn i know)
