"Headlines" as written by Anthony Palman, Aubrey Graham, Noah Shebib and Matthew Samuels....
I might be too strung out on compliments
Overdosed on confidence
Started not to give a f*** and stopped fearing the consequence
Drinking every night because we drink to my accomplishments
Faded way too long I'm floating in and out of consciousness
And they sayin' I'm back, I'd agree with that
I just take my time with all this s***, I still believe in that
I had someone tell me I fell off, oh I needed that
And they wanna see me pick back up, well where'd I leave it at
I know I exaggerated things, now I got it like that
Tuck my napkin in my shirt, cause I'm just mobbin' like that
You know good and well that you don't want a problem like that
You gone make someone around me catch a body like that
No, don't do it, please don't do it, cause one of us goes in
And we all go through it
Drizzy got the money, so Drizzy gonna pay it
Those my brothers, I ain't even gotta say it
That's just something they know

They know, they know, they know
They know, they know, they know
They know, they know, they know
Yeah they know yeah
That the real is on the rise
F*** them other guys
I even gave them a chance to decide
Now it's something they know
They know, they know, they know,

Yeah, I be yelling out money over everything, money on my mind.
Then she wanna ask when it got so empty
Tell her I apologize it happened over time
She says they missed the old drake, girl don't tempt me
If they don't get it, they'll be over you
That new s*** that you got is overdue
You better do what you suppose to do
I'm like why I gotta be all that but still I can't deny the fact that it's true
Listen to you expressing all them feelings
Soap opera rappers all these n****s sound like all my children
And that's who you thinking is 'bout to come and make a killing
I guess it really is just me, myself and all my millions
You know the game even got it like that
You gone hype me up and make me catch a body like that
Cause I live for this it isn't just a hobby like that
When they get my s*** and play it, I ain't even gotta say it, they know

They know, they know, they know
They know, they know, they know
They know, they know, they know
Yeah they know yeah
That the real is on the rise
F*** them other guys
I even gave them a chance to decide
Now it's something they know
They know, they know, they know,

I be yelling out money over everything, money on my mind. (mind, mind, mind)
Tell em' I apologize it happened over time (time, time, time)
They know

    General CommentGonna have to disagree with yall. I think he is saying "How i am acting isn't me. I don't like it, but, I really do like the money." I think he is conflicted. Living his life style gives him "power" and money, but he dislikes his life style. his family and real friends ( as opposed to his boys) also don't like how he is acting via " She says we miss the old drake". just my 2 cents

    I'm sure that's a reference to Lil Wayne.

    General CommentAlways remember: they are always talking about inside stuff you won't know about - it comes with the ego of being connected like he is as well as many other artists.

    Basically it's just a "im the best, we're taking over, dont even try to mess with us, youll be taken out"

    Song MeaningTechnically it is him saying he dislikes his life style and since he soled his soul to the devil (which most of you may not know or believe) he is now not only under control he wishes he could turn back and he wishes he didnt sell his soul for all the fame, money, strippers, etc. But he cant turn back now its too late. And just to give you an example he has too many signs in his music videos, if youve noticed, he has a guy in his music video standing in the very front of that crowd with a big owl on his shirt which represents the devil, and at the beggining the little mini castle looking thing with the poles if you havent noticed is on the back of a 5 dollar bill, and when they sprayed 'OVOXO' on the wall if you havent noticed he talked about it in another song when he said "mr OVOXO"..... it night be another devil, and if you noticed he put 2 straight lines in the last O's of OVOXO in the video to represent eyes. But wther you believe this or not youll day... the new world order is yet to come....

    General CommentI think what Drake is saying is that prior to being successful he did things that don't reflect who he is, but at the time, were necessary to get money(end game). Then he becomes successful, but the money has changed him in a way that he doesn't view himself. Has the money made things better? Don't know.
