    You own this


Okay the night is the mind
You know the sun will shine
But now the night is on the mind
Moving up the ladder to an elevated prime
Coulda been a lone connoisseur for crime
Living sublime
Life is only what you make in time
Either gather everything that come across the line
Or you could settle for a piece of that devilish pie
24 more friends in the blink of an eye
They victimized how they own confidence collide
I separate the non-sense church-state divide
Keep it refined never try make a move un-wise…
Flowing automatic under creamy skies
Long as the breeze keep blowing I’m a blow this dime
Call it balance in the circle I relate sometimes
But you can never underestimate the way to survive

Call it survival of the times…
Trying survive in this…

Been steered of the road
Came back
Now we up outta here
Traces of the grind on our fingertips
I ain’t gotta read between the lines
Ya’ll niggas just moving lips….
You never was equipped or accustomed
Telling them tales of how you cock back and bust em
Trust em
Piece it together like your name brand fashion fits
Stitch whatever
Banging through your ghetto corner block store
Urban enterprise no apology for interrupting minds
More bliss...
More pimps
More hoes and tricks
More savage intuition to respond like this
Yelling survival of the fit only the strong survive
So gather everthing you ever owned set it afire
Got em dancing to the clock ticker
Detonate the flock nigga
Box big enough to package all of your props

Call it survival of the times…
