Stressed Out Lyrics

I really know how it feels to be stressed out, stressed out
When you're face to face with your adversity
I really know how it feels to be stressed out, stressed out
We're gonna make this thing work out eventually

Yo, I ain't one to complain but there's things in the game
(What's your name?)
Consequence, I'm tight, burnt like flames
(And why's that?)
American dreams, they got this ghetto kid in a fiend

Don't stress that 'cause it's not in your bloodstream
Your whole being comes from greatness, d'you remember
Shatan got you caught in the storms of December
And brothers on the block packin' nines like September
Crazy situations keeps pockets on slender

Yo, I be on the avenue where they be actin' brand new
I'm splurgin' on these Reebok joints for shorty boo
All of a sudden, I saw these two kids frontin'
Talkin' out they joints but they wasn't sayin' nuttin'
My hand was on my toolie, they was actin' unruly
Say word, yo, word up, yo, I was tight caught up
But I swallowed my pride and let that nonsense ride
Because I'm positive, it seems that negative dies

Yo, we was at the dice game makin' these cats look silly
Flamin', steady, runnin' off at the Willie
I had my cash mixed, my rent due, with my play-dough
I gotta see some loot so all my girls I blow
Shook them shits in my palm let 'em hit the flo'
Kept my eyeballs scopin' for them pigs po-po
I got to go on the ave, see my parole by fo'
But I gotta steady freak these boys like Jo Jo

And I was doin it til I met Ike, Spike and Mike
One roll, they had my pockets thirstier than Sprite
Yo, I know the feelin' when you feelin' like a villain
You be havin' good thoughts but the evils be revealin'
And the stresses of life can take you off the right path
Jealousy and envy tends to infiltrate your staff
We gotta hold it down so we can move on past
All adversities, so we can get through fast like that

I really know how it feels to be stressed out, stressed out
When you're face to face with your adversity
I really know how it feels to be stressed out, stressed out
We're gonna make this thing work out eventually

You got the N.W.O., low cash flow
Your baby's on the way and you don't know who
And crosstown niggaz tryin' to bust at you
Aiyyo, they got me stressed out and you don't know what to do
So frame this Kodak black and vision to my contact
With a poultry scrap, workers get pistol smacked
The switch hittin' Queens, niggaz liquid sword spittin'
With raw poppy and now your first love is krill
Your vision of the mil got crept like Hey Lover
Tried to rise to the top, you just couldn't recover
And all I want is my laceration of the pie
to get this whip cream before the water runs dry

Niggaz flashdancin', yo, I don't know why
You're sick of snitchin', she got you cruisin' to the pokey like Smokey
The stress be tryin' to squeeze out a homey
While I be tryin' to get star status like Shinobi
So we can build a dynasty just like the Colby
And all I want is the world to know my steez
These money hungry niggaz is seven thirty
And got me stressed out like these frog MC's

I really know how it feels to be stressed out, stressed out
When you're face to face with your adversity
I really know how it feels to be stressed out, stressed out
We're gonna make this thing work out eventually

Don't worry, we gonna make it
Don't worry, we gonna make it
Don't worry, we gonna make it
We gonna make it

Don't worry, we gonna make it
We're gonna make it
Don't worry, we gonna make it
We gonna make it

Don't worry, we gonna make it
Don't worry, we gonna make it
Don't worry, we gonna make it
We gonna make it

Don't worry, we gonna make it
I know we gonna make it
Don't worry, we gonna make it
We gonna make it

Don't worry, we gonna make it
We gonna make it
We gonna make it
Know we're gonna make it

We gonna make it, gonna make it
We gonna make it, know we gonna make it
We gonna make it
