Look,
some niggas let their dirt out,
some just keep it in ‘em...
so when a man dies all his secrets go with him
and (? - fate, fame, faith?), a part of history no longer known,
done did a lot of dirt I’ll bury with me when I’m gone
when my story’s told... how will they tell it?
will they say I was a giver or remember I was selfish?
will they say I was a sinner or pretend I was a saint?
will I go down as a winner, what's the picture they gon paint?
wouldn’t say that I’m a quitter that's one thing I know I ain't
will they tarnish, will they taint,
glorify me, overthink, say they know me, say I’m great,
say I’m phoney, I was fake,
say the things about me that they never told me to my face?
I was loved, I was hated;
just a nigga with a dream.
I’m a liar, I was honest, I was all of these things...
when I’m gone, let 'em talk
they discussing who I am
when they bury me just know I was nothin' but a man,
wasn’t nothin’ but a man...

This for them niggas climbin’ Heaven's stairwell...
yeah, hey farewell.
yeah, hey farewell.
This for them niggas climbin’ Heaven's stairwell...
I pray you farewell.
I bid you farewell.
yeah, hey farewell.
yeah, yeah...

If I should die, Lord, this here is my will:
reincarnate a nigga, send me right back to the 'ville,
let me relive my younger days, just once again,
reenact my memories from every friend to every sin
keeping demons buried in my closet
but yet I put in work like a deposit on my bank account
my eyes lit while I think about my childhood now I'm blanking out...
those were truly my best days,
the only thing I had to stress was how the hell to get laid
gradually turned into me stressin’ how the hell to get paid
been making songs so long, now how the hell they get played?
Okay, I’m blowing up quickly,
I guess the flow is sickly,
but yet I can’t forget my past and hope it won’t forget me...
got good grades but A's can’t stop strays, so pray for me,
pour liquor for my niggas, but hey, don’t wait for me
cause I’m trying to cheat death, she's out to bury my ass
you know the cliche “life's a bitch”, well I’m gon' marry that ass
and sign a pre-nupt!
think back to when we tore the skating rink up
rapping and we scrapping, we got older hit the teen club
gave mean mugs to niggas but we winked to all the girls
then we went back to the crib thinking we had saw the world
no sir... came a long way from having Momma chauffered
it's hard to think these hoes at some point were so pure,
but now we play the game, when it's over send me back,
I swear I’m not gon' change a thing,
I swear I’m not gon' change a thing...

This for them niggas climbin’ Heaven's stairwell...
yeah, hey farewell.
I pray you farewell.
I pray you niggas farewell.
This for them niggas climbin’ Heaven's stairwell...
Uh, hey farewell.
uh, uh, hey farewell.
yeah, hey farewell.
yeah...
