Dan Lewandowski – One Take lyrics

[Verse 1]
At age 18 I was the kid they loved to hate
I started rap and they told me they wouldn't rate me
Even though I was straight in my bars
While they're creaming over their cars
I'm rapping so I can reach the stars
Fuck the kids that kicked me down
Fuck the people that said I wouldn't make it
I could write a list of shit they said I wouldn't do
And each and every single time I proved em wrong
So I keep going with every single song
Cause I know there's gonna be a time
Where one our rhymes go viral and that's it
Then they'll pretend that they knew me
"Hey, I remember him, we used to talk all the time"
Nah, did we fuck
Keep a close circle cause I don't trust anyone
I've pulled knives out my back, I lost count
This is the way of a warrior, I'll keep bouncing back
I'll keep coming back till I'm dead

[Hook]
This isn't me, but I couldn't hold back
They told me I was nothing, what could I do?
I'm tired of sitting back, letting people just,
Walk over me like I'm nothing
One take and that's all I need
Your hate, your doubt
It sounds like you have a stutter
It's repetetive, just leave me alone
And let me do my thing, and you do yours
This is one take, and one take is all I need

[Verse 2]
This is not my ego, this is just plain facts
I put my mind to the max making tracks
But you still find a different way to doubt me
I give it everything I've fucking got
And quitting's just not an option
What's it gonna take for all you close minded,
Fucks to understand the concept?
You really think I've got time for all this nonsense?
This isn't my type of music but God,
I'm just getting pissed off
See, to you this is a joke, a little project,
I guess you'll never understand this kind of mindset
They said I wouldn't last, and I'd be an upset
This is no hobby, it's my life goddamit
I'll never stop spilling my life on the page
Pen and paper are my gameplan, the only one's I need
Constantly refreshing my page for fresh ammo,
You fail to see you're obsessed with the Dan Lewandowski Show

[Hook]
This isn't me, but I couldn't hold back
They told me I was nothing, what could I do?
I'm tired of sitting back, letting people just,
Walk over me like I'm nothing
One take and that's all I need
Your hate, your doubt
It sounds like you have a stutter
It's repetetive, just leave me alone
And let me do my thing, and you do yours
This is one take, and one take is all I need
