NF - PAID MY DUES Songtext

Clicks, clicks, clicks, they'll do anything to get a few
Tick, tick, tick, that's the sound before my head explodes
Quit, quit, quit, look at you up on your pedestals
Quick, quick, quick, here the critics come it's time to go

I read your article it kinda hurt me
I don't know who hired you or what your friends say in your circle
But the fact that you released it, tells me two things are for certain
They get paid for trashin' people
I get paid cause i stay workin'

Drop the search and they emerge up out of nowhere to the surface
Just to peek behind the curtain
Throwin' salt at all my burdens
I'm aware i shouldn't give this my attention
Life's a journey
I should just stay on my path and learn to laugh
You think they heard me?

Ears are burning put um out
Quiet quiet look around
Why don't they find someone way more interesting to write about?
Us we're kinda boring, aren't we?
All we do is whine and pout
It's confusing so amusing how i argue with myself (hello)

I spit it with ease, so leave it to me
You doubt it but you better believe
I'm on a rampage hit um with the record release
Dependin' the week, I'm prolly gonna have to achieve
Another goal let me go when i'm over the beat
I go into beast mode like i'm ready to feast
I'm fed up with these
Thieves tryna get me to bleed
They wanna see me take an l?
(yup, see what i mean)

How many records i gotta give you to get with the program?
Taken for granted i'm bout to give you the whole plan
Open your mind up and take a look at the blueprint
Debate if you gotta, but gotta hold it with both hands
To pick up the bars you gotta be smart
You really gotta dig in your heart if you wanna get to the root of an issue
Pursuin' the mental can be dark and be difficult
But the payoff at the end of it, can help you to get through it hey

Paid my dues, made it through (Whoo, whoo, whoo)
Spread the news, I'm on the loose (Whoo, whoo, whoo)

Makin' moves, I need some room (Whoo, whoo, whoo)
Thought we's cool
Well don't assume, don't assume hey!

I'm the truth, oh they want some proof
Here don't be rude, somethin' new
Even when i lose i make it look cool
Do the show then we hit the room
Wife is lookin' whoo, what to do?
I don't need the shades up to like the view

It's time to get back in the swing of things
When my life crashes, I'm not the guy that will flee the scene
I'll take ownership and own it and raise my hand if it's me
Just remember though, I'm only a man i'm a human being

Don't they see
Shoot the breeze
I'd rather just stay discrete
People claim they're in your corner but leave you in times of need
They don't listen, do they? (what?)
They don't listen to anything
I'll accept advice if it's not presented ignorantly

Look, costs are high they multiply
Then cause divides i'm forced to fight
The poison i been sippin' on has quite the bite
It killed me twice, they rigged lights
So y'all can see the parts of mine that aren't so bright
See, often i apologize then authorize the awful times
To pop up nate like i'm right behind you
I'd advise you not to try to climb inside the mind like i do
Keep the rhyme book, expedite it overnight it
Hold it tight an hope that time is on my side
Cause if it's not then i'll decide to override my own demise
I tow the line to close and i could Improvise, I'd empathize
But recognize the fact that i could jeopardize and wreck our lives
You better give me your attention the undivided

Paid my dues, made it through (Whoo, whoo, whoo)
Spread the news, I'm on the loose (Whoo, whoo, whoo)

Makin' moves, I need some room (Whoo, whoo, whoo)
Thought we's cool
Well don't assume, don't assume hey!

Paid my dues, made it through (Whoo, whoo, whoo)
Spread the news, I'm on the loose (Whoo, whoo, whoo)

Makin' moves, I need some room (Whoo, whoo, whoo)
Thought we's cool
Well don't assume, don't assume hey!
