Big K.R.I.T. – The Alarm lyrics

Do you believe they could call you the greatest?
So you pay your bills but you barely made it
Do you believe that it's all on your shoulders
And everything would seem clearer if you stayed sober?
Do you believe that your heart is really in it
When you know most these folks ain't impressed with
Your vision?
Do you believe that this pep talk
Will keep you in top form when so many fell off?
Do you believe that the world feels your pain?
It's kill or be killed, can you keep what you claim?
Do you believe that you really can sustain
This lifestyle, sky miles, ballin in the chains?
Do you believe that these niggas really fuck with you?
When you hit rock bottom, look how many stuck with ya
Do you believe that the devils all around?
If he's knockin at your door, have strength to turn him
Do you believe? They can barely hear the real shit
In a world of fantasies, can you be a realist?

Do you believe that the governments concealing
Their true intentions, apprehending those who won't be
Do you believe that doing right will make you richer?
And just because you're paid, these white folks still
Won't call you niggaare
Do you believe that you can sacrifice it all
When the balls in your court and your time has been
Do you believe that God will forgive you?
For those times that you didn't let him steer you?
For those times that you up and lost faith
Cause you swore he couldn't hear you and nothing ever
Do you believe that screaming out his name
When you lost your best friend is what really helped
The pain
Do you believe that you never loved fame
And you wouldn't miss a dime if you lost it all today

Wake up
Wake up
Wake up
Wake up
