"Get Up"

[Verse 1]
Is it classless? I wish I were classless
Writin rhymes up in classes so I can surpass this mental tax is
Payin my dues to institutions and it ain't like I ain't learnin
I’d just much rather be groovin and doin it by doin
That make me a truant? So be it
And I’m far from Soviet but I’m all for the union of people, not the confusion of people
American capitalism’s made us illusions of people
That’s why I’m on my rooftop wit aerial vision
So I ain’t blinded by material prisons
I just put em all in bars in an attempt to flip the script, flip the switch, shed light on the viciousness
This is it, so be critical not cynical
I just be this lyrical young guy, no biblical
Let’s have ideas before we just buy [?]
We gonna be forever underachievers

[Chorus]
This that food for your mind so don’t lay on your spine
Man it’s time, gotta get up
And I ain't sayin that I’m better, I been blamin on the weather
But forget it, gotta get up
Cause the climate is dire but I ain't tryin to retire, I’m fightin fire with fire
Cause we can’t be defeated, when they tell you be seated, repeat it, get up

[Verse 2]
Havin visions of greatness but waitin for yourself to grow will make you impatient
They say it’s my time and I gotta take it
But takin my time is kinda passive and really I’m sick of waitin
So what I bring to the table is food for thought, drink for pain, forks in the road
But you gotta listen past the beat cause I want you to eat but I can’t force you though
So I’m workin on my catalogue, writin all day though I’m never takin Adderall
Tell people I rap and they laugh it off til they hear me like, “That ain’t bad at all, sh*t man, that’s actually raw”
So I ain’t mad at yall
And no dog, I don’t wanna battle yall
More for unity between you and me, cause I see the you in me
And we could f*ck around and start a mutiny

[Chorus]
This that food for mind so don’t lay on your spine
Man it’s time, gotta get up
And I ain't sayin that I’m better, I been blamin on the weather
But forget it, gotta get up
Cause the climate is dire but I ain't tryin to retire, I’m fightin fire with fire
Cause we can’t be defeated, when they tell you be seated, repeat it, get up
