The Dollar Lyrics

[Intro]
Twenty years
Twenty years ago fir...
Man I've been at this for twenty years

[Verse 1]
Twenty years ago first show
I was twenty years old, time flies, I don't know where it goes
Pull up bumpin' Jay through the speakers of a hoopty
Now it's barricades and black SUVs
Time flies when you're miserable
First album was a CD now everything's digital
Can't believe I lived through everything I've been through
House filled with black dudes, I slept in the living room
Late night studio, rappin' in the basement
Missed out on my son as a kid, didn't raise him
Caught a few cases, got locked up in state pen
I remember Tamen was eight then
I was poor sleepin' on the floor
It's depressin' I knew I wanted more
I guess it was a blessing
Now I'm writing album number four in the West Wing
Did a bunch of tours, I can afford the best things
I went from broke as a joke to rich as it gets
I went from dead beat dad to raisin' my kid
I went from hell in a cell to be able to live
I went from poor to wealth and I hate this
[Chorus]
Dollar and a dream it ain't always what it seems
So be careful what you wish for
Dollar and a dream it ain't always what it seems
Careful what you wish for

[Verse 2]
Life long friends that'll stab you in the back
They're the first ones that'll ask for some cash
I can't even talk to my dad without his hand out
I was least likely to succeed, I'm the man now
Ten cars in the pole barn I don't even drive
Four wheelers, dirt bikes I don't even ride
I just sit in this chair, blank stare, look outside
That's a hell of a price to pay for this life
Mater fact you know I been to hell and back twice
Angel stuck by my side that I shoulda made my wife
But I spend my time online lookin' at pictures of Instagram models
That's my addiction
Fly 'em out, give 'em money, this ain't free
Stay up all night, lose sleep
Get what I need, it's a disease
You ain't payin' 'em to stay, you're payin' 'em to leave, leave

[Chorus]
Dollar and a dream it ain't always what it seems
Be careful what you wish for
Dollar and a dream it ain't always what it seems
Be careful what you wish for
[Verse 3]
All I see is unfamiliar faces
Did my song "Racism" thought I wouldn't say it
On tour California called me racist
Boycotted shows, tried to keep me off stages
I just keep my middle finger in the air
I'm the reason that I'm here, are we clear?
You're in the rearview, I can't even hear you
Double what I did in year one and year two
So here's to never bein' satisfied
Always feelin' sad inside
Tell me who's down to ride
Feelin' like a homicide
Always gonna speak my mind, at least I tell the truth
Tell me why you always lie

[Outro]
I'm done man, I'm not good with this sad rap
That's just how I feel

[Chorus]
It's like a dollar and a dream it ain't always what it seems
It's like a dollar and a dream it ain't always what it seems
Be careful what you wish for
