"My World" as written by and Gerard/mescudi Puterflam,claude/kawczynski....
Hello, yeah

Little homie, in the room
In, in the room, boy on the moon
(Had-had no one) No one to hang out with
Talk that shit to just my little homies
One year younger din' get where I was going
Took a turn to the worse when my father left me lonely
Mmm, lonely in my room
I, I mean me up on the moon
Entertained myself, laughed at myself
As I grew to be a teen I disguised myself
Had the lowest self-esteem, especially with the girls
Tried out every sport just to impress all the girls
Instead of all the ladies, 'cause they talk down
I was too artsy, known to be a clown
And now my Facebook poppin'
'Cause I told the same girls I would be the hot shit
One day

This will be my world
I told you so
This will be my world
I told you so
This will be my world
I told you so
This will be my world

Big homie, made the move
Made, made the move, flew off the moon
Still had-had no one, no one to hang out with
Talk that shit to just my Brooklyn niggas
All I would wonder is when will my time come
Had mad jobs and I lost damn near all of them
Think about my bosses, yep I hated all of them
Studio at night had me hustlin' to most of them
Nigga I was late, damn near every day
But I'mma be on time when my stars align
When my soul was happy on my Ramen diet
Followed by a loosey was the meal of grinders
If you knowin' the truth all you think about is that thing
Always be a hater tryin' to shoot down any dreams
Until you meet a kid like K-I
Niggas thought I was crazy, my mama know I stay high
We're getting money, mom

This will be my world
I told you so
This will be my world
I told you so
This will be my world
I told you so
This will be my world

I was heavy-heavy-heavy on my grizzle
And none of y'all had a clue about me
And none of y'all had a clue about me
And none of y'all really knew about me
I was heavy-heavy-heavy on my grizzle
And none of y'all really cared about me
And none of y'all really cared about me
Now, guess what? I'm all you see
I'm all you see

This will be my world
I told you so
This will be my world
I told you so
This will be my world
I told you so
This will be my world

Yeah-ohh
Yeah-ohh

    adding to what you said Crymes8, i feel like he is also talking about how he grew psychologically in coming out of his shell through the years from when he was young and really insecure, into being a confident and successful dude

    General Commenti think he talks about when he was waiting for his time to become noticed and famous to prove everyone wrong and that he did it himself when people were even putting him down

    General Comment"When my soul was happy on my rhaman diet
    Followed by a lucy was the meal of grinders"

    First of all it's Ramen.
    Then he talks about this meal of grinders also consisting of a "lucy".. or is it a "loosie" ?
    lucy = acid, tab of lsd
    loosie = a cigarette basically

    Anyways this song is sick. No one could relate to his way of thinking growing up. He was fixed on fulfilling a dream and no one believed him or could relate. Now that he is actually living that dream he is sending this message back to all the haters.. "I told you so".

    General Commentok....im cudistan so bear with me lol

    it's talking about how he transitioned from following his dreams when he came to new york from cleveland...
    he was an artsy kid in school who wanted to fit in and tried too hard.
    the 2nd verse is him going to ny and explaining the shit he went through....he was literally poor as shit couch surfing everywhere...the ramen noodle diet was what he lived off of because he couldnt afford anything ....and he said in an interview that he would sit outside of his job at abercrombie and smoke a "loosie" staring at the burger king across the street wishing he could afford something there =(
    the loosie being a "meal of grinders" is basically the substitute for a real meal in which he could'nt get because he had to struggle to survive
    and he went through a shit load of jobs in ny where he explained....
    the song is based off of his history/struggle and how he did'nt give up...
    My dude cudi came a LONG way man....i truly respect the man and his music.
