Pour the 1800 in a tall glass
Lets go crazy tonight, the world's gone mad
It's loose slavery takin' me with the ball players
And they try to put you out the class with no hall pass
Nonetheless, puff my chest never see me sweat
So ahead of my time my parents haven't even met
Word to Big L I see the big picture
'Cause when the closing credits close its no Vic Mensa just Victor
Now just listen, I'll sing you my song of pain
Blood sweat and tears but they still take the flow in vein
That's why the music is my Novocain
I feel like David Bowie I been under pressure but I'm over-famed
Who's to blame, I can't accuse the game
Swervin' on the road to riches but they tell me choose a lane
Play the flutes like a brute champagne
I think the whole planets losin' its brain
It's like the world's gone mad

Speakin' for my generation this is innovation
Tryna bring unity to this divided nation
I'm tired of being patient while they try to diagnosis
They say I'm shortsighted, y'all just out of focus
I slept by the roaches, learned to fly with vultures
Purple heart beatin' for all my Chicago soldiers
From the war zone to the world tour zone
I'm the man now but momma your boy's home
I never left like violins, I never fret
From where the threat of violence is forever present
Take a trip down memory lane I'm reminiscin'
We ain't have a window to throw it out or a pot to piss in
They don't understand the youth 'cause they don't try to listen
Niggas dyin' young in the streets 'cause they tired of livin'
Tired of lies from the politicians
Open your eyes I'll supply the vision
Of how the world's gone mad

Freedom is a word that I've never known
Freedom is a word that I've never known
Freedom is a word that I've never known
Freedom is a word, freedom is a word
Freedom is a word that I've never known
Freedom is a word that I've never known
Freedom is a word that I've never known
Freedom is a word, freedom is a word

Pick a Scott like wine, we get finer with time
Diamond in the rough I can shine in the mind
But I grind all the time so I shine in the line
Pick a Scott like wine, we get finer with time
Diamond in the rough I can shine in the mind
But I grind all the time so I shine in the line
Pick a Scott like wine, we get finer with time
Diamond in the rough I can shine in the mind
But I grind all the time so I shine in the line
Pick a Scott like wine, we get finer with time
Diamond in the rough I can shine in the mind
But I grind all the time so I shine in the line
