Timeflies – Crystal Ball lyrics

Small town livin' chillin' acting like I'm cool
While I'm one strappin' backpackin' probably actin' like a fool
See I'm walkin' up to my V-dubs and rolling up to school
And I'm feelin' like O'Doyle bitch I rule...

See I grew up on a one way
Only knowin' one way
Thinkin' I could do it like a subway
Underground sound passion
And now I'm smashin' these bitches who make they livin' on a runway
Fashion me with a mic now
Might flash a free I might write down

Shit, is this my life now?

My crystal ball never showed me what life was like
My crystal ball never showed me a life so bright
And yeah you show me what to do
You show me how it is
But I don't need you
To show me how to live
My crystal ball
My crystal ball
My crystal ball

OK

Cuttin' school playin' hook
But they call me Peter Pan
Cause I'm never growin' up look
I don't need a plan
See they never wrote a book on how to be the man
Worst case I'll be down by the river chillin' in my van
I'm in the back of the class with a backwards hat
Tryna concentrate on these pages
And it's usually math where I'm writin' raps
Thinkin' bright lights on these stages
Dreamin' all along I might get my songs to go and drop at radio stations
I might have failed a class but I'm cool with that you can't top this education

My crystal ball never showed me what life was like
My crystal ball never showed me a life so bright
And yeah you show me what to do
You show me how it is
But I don't need you
To show me how to live
My crystal ball
My crystal ball
My crystal ball

Went to live the dream, I'm falling
Rushing to the scene I'm stallin'
Shot callin' now you see I'm all in
Man I must have stacked the deck cause bitch I'm straight up crystal ballin
I was freestyling so old school while I was on the mic in the bedroom
With low ceilings on Pro Tools now that's off the top with no headroom
Started out on a Tuesday, so hot we couldn't stop it
Turned my day dreams into day times now I'm feelin' like a prophet

My crystal ball never showed me what life was like
My crystal ball never showed me a life so bright
And yeah you show me what to do
You show me how it is
But I don't need you
To show me how to live
My crystal ball
My crystal ball
My crystal ball
