lyrics

Let me break it down x8

Is your glass half full or is your glass half empty
You gotta fill it when the envy
Gets in the way of what you can be
Put your thoughts in a buster let me break it down

Let me make it clear when your living as a pessimist
Concentrating on the negatives
Always hating on a better man
Cause he can do it better then you
Sharpen your tools when your negligent
Its like a sedative if you let it get
The best of you take control set your goals dont be hesitant
Elevate and reminisce use it as a medicine
Enter a different element the way your medaling
Sick of settling pick up a settlement
The suddleness is setting in
Fuck with us dont be celobit
Thinking of getting into business where the credit is
Due bringing the truth to the forfront of these sentences
Like Methamphetamine addicted to the bettering
Of your own being beyond be it for the better end
Feel the positive and let it in
Cause Im everywhere you never been
And better then I ever been

CHORUS:

Is your glass half full or is your glass half empty
You gotta fill it when the envy
Gets in the way of what you can be
Put your thoughts in a buster let me break it down

Let me break it down x8

Let me break it down
For all my people breaking down
Breaking down earb blazing loud
Your taken out taking out your frustration now
Learning to harness all your hardships and embrace them now
Then identify your fears so you can face em now
And express and shed a tear so you can taste em now
Building blocks like Im tetris
Never stopped like Im nexus
When I drop what Im scripting then it shake the ground
Like an earthquake equate your sound
As a mix of influence to then relate your sound
To listeners and kids at home without a bank account
That listen close changing the way they even make their bounds and leaps
Find out your dreams before you chase em down
Put an honest effort into trying to race the hands of time
But keep in mind that when you reach the clouds
The earth will seem miniture so redeem yourself

Is your glass half full or is your glass half empty
You gotta fill it if the envy
Gets in the way of what you can be
Put your thoughts in a buster let me break it down

CHORUS x2
