“I move by myself cause nobody thinks like me/
& I could care less if nobody was around me.

A solitary mind of the isolated kind…
Authentic being mine in these fabricated times.

When others catch up, I pack bags up and wrap-up/
(It’s) a sign to transform again and alternate my status.

The G’s a pioneer/ I lead what I share…
The beat I ride’s the bass; what I speak in rhyme’s the snare.

The environment I’m living in is like an instrumental/
The way I choose to live my life is lyrics from my pencil.

I start rhyming as soon as I get up out the bed…
Composing classics w/ the thought-patterns in my head.

Yesterday was whack so I had to scratch that/
Crumple it up…dump it in the trash, now I revamp that.

Cause I living in the now; spitting w/ the Dao
Tzu-Lao had corn-rows anyhow…

There’s no rules when I’m mic-checking like this.
An exodus: recollect before next precipice.

So I’m never really slipping cause I’m keeping it real
It’s just another lesson learn on the mind’s battlefield…

———— The Hook ————-

Only lessons learned in my strategy-design.
Habits are defined by the patterns in my mind/

Failure don’t exist on this battlefield of mine/
Only lessons learned in my strategy-design.
Habits are defined by the patterns in my mind
When I think like this my mentality inclines…”
