The corner, the corner

Will you learn earn it, will you make it term it
So place in your mind where your darkest stores is I
Is where I shout and some get elevated
That was just a dream
The corner, the corner
That was just a dream

Man it works it like dogs
I time swag it the copses
Corner the market like cooperate from my corner office
Smile got a lungs, black is the smokers tryin to pass to the soaking
Hit in the back of the dough with the fofin
Put Olympics with niggas is passin the torches
To every hand in the ghetto we answer the greatle
We trapped in the force, we ran from captains of boat chips
To the corners with the ragging approaches
Now we crime with spectacular focus chock us,
In the corner of the club making the models nervous
Any nigga tryin to front them in some bottle surface
We follow verdicts like boo is the follow...
Respect what they say yesterday is fights tomorrow is bird us
I'm hopin to pray that you never forget where you came from
Post it the slaves accept their lives post to be hand from
Nightmare get the shy line the road with the same gun

That was just a dream, that's me in the corner
That's me in the spot,
Life fuck a cop don't say I ain't warned you
Tryin to keep up the weed
And I don't know if you can do it,
Oh no I said too much, that was just a dream
I've been said enough,
That was just a dream, that's me in the corner

Woke up this morning life fuck all of my aponeys
Grab my strapped jump up in my hooked
Hit the block and hit some donuts
All hangin out the window middle fingers to the police
Shining diamonds got them blinded by reflections of this roll it
I remember I was broke a shit
They didn't know me then, niggas hands out
Always on that homie shit
Sometimes I get paranoid like when I was holing bricks
Everyone is a suspect, be careful who you rolling with
For that blow guns blow like pumpets
Home invasions get your ticket free lunches
Reminiscent on remi that's the remedy roof over my head
You've seen how they did Kenedy
Life is a traffic jam tryin to get by
... time to get high no why because

That was just a dream, that was just a dream
That's me in the corner
That's me in the spot light losing my religion
Trying to keep up with you
And I don't know if I can do it
Oh no I've said too much
I haven't said enough

I thought that I heard you laughing
I thought that I heard you sing
I think I thought I saw you try

But that was just a dream, try, cry, why, try
That was just a dream, just a dream, just a dream
Dream
