[Verse 1] – Isaiah Oby

So sit back, let's throw watches
Pack the poor pockets with stacks of "more honest"
Got mad plaque, I'm "O-Donist"
Teeth are rotten, all you do is sweet talk and I keep the promise

I reap the profits of practice
And you sleeping all in the mattress
The world is cold here's my jacket
So when I rap this it's a tactic

Like "That's it"
"That's all"
"We're through?"
"I hit em all"

"Till the next time we meet" That's a bad deal
And the way you drop feels is a mad skill
If the heart hurts go and pop and Advil
Yea I got the drive, I'm in a cab still

[Hook] – Rahkii

You make me better
You make me better (x2)

Let's watch the time go by
Let's watch the time go by

[Verse 2] – Alma Cook
Stand up a new anthem
Bust and replant them
Trust and recant them

Your bad luck bought a new phantom
That wants to fix all your troubles with a few tantrums

But you're too handsome

Whatever comes out your lips
Is always eclipsed by the poise
I'm hit with a noise
That drowns out the voices telling me to jump ship

Like "that's it,"
And "that's it,"

See I'm not saying "no" to the disdain
But I'm not saying "go" I'm saying this pain
Is too much for a Tylenol
See I got the 'Who? What?' but the 'Why' is all


[Bridge] – Isaiah Oby
And my world is stolen
Locked up together like our path was chose
My devotion to you was not potent
My erosion was pre-conceived notions

And that night was a fairy tail
You let your hair down I tried and I still failed
You're making moves I'm in the dark like I need braille
Getting lost on this path I need a new trail

Now I’m here,
And I’ve done this for you
