Speedbumps, you try to slow me down in a fast world
You try to hold me down with your slow words
It's not your fault, I see planets and you see suburbs

We started out with the same goals, same love, same lifestyle
Six musicians from the same mold, same highs, same lows, same clubs, same shows
Watching all our colleagues get hot while we stay cold

Immune system's down, you caught the bug
Stopped the headnod, started to shrug
Start to plant root, cable TV starts thinking "I"
Stop thinking "we" always laughed
At the people who fell for the blue collar trap and the college degree
But as time goes by, you start to wonder
Who'll be laughing further down the line
It's all about time

Speedbumps, you try to slow me down in a fast world
You try to hold me down with your slow words
It's not your fault, I see planets and you see suburbs

Speedbumps? Gee, for me, it was like "speedbikes"
Laid a slick little trap at night
At the height of the ride
When everything I thought was alright
Pulled some shit that makes a nigga wanna fight
Threw a speedbump when you was trying to speedball
Go ahead with your bad self because it's all good
For the karma, for the honor, for your mama
For the house, for the wife, for the change, the baby drama
But I still love you and I'm understanding better
I'll never be clever enough to put some hella chedder
Before dreams, my love, after material things
In search of what "The Good Life" means
It's a tough recovery but I'll be fine
And for a lack of hope in hard time
I pray you stay blind
So do your thing and I'll do mine
And in time, we'll sit back and all laugh
Ha

Immune system's down, you caught the bug
Stopped the headnod, started to shrug
Start to plant root, cable TV starts thinking "I"
Stop thinking "we" always laughed
At the people who fell for the blue collar trap and the college degree
But as time goes by, you start to wonder
Who'll be laughing further down the line
It's all about time

Speedbumps, you try to slow me down in a fast world
You try to hold me down with your slow words
It's not your fault, I see planets and you see suburbs
