Save Note No Thanks
Caution: You are now annotating this song as

[Verse 1: Noe]
Listen, it ain't fixing when you really broke
When you faced with an eviction letter note
You can really choke
How you cope?
How you breathe better?
How you supposed to up the ante in this jungle and achieve cheddar? (Can't)
Question: Are you broke as a plan?
And is God just a fan of the pope?
I ain't playin'
Answer: I just deal with it
Envision holdin mega bennies and a jet
I just Captain and Tennille with it (I do)
Simple mind-gaming
How you supposed to be a trapper in the hood?
Re-adjust your mind frame and
Power bars, so I sold what I sold
Call collect it was cold so I'm owed what I owed

[Hook: The Black Keys]
Hard Times
Gathering all
Around me
No, No
No, No, No

(Verse Two - NOE)
I'm a bad, bad boy try'na battle up the bleedin'
I don't bark, I just bite down hard like I'm teethin'
Bail money saver, money or the signer
A poster boy for any given infamous designer
Even in a gun war I maintain the fly
Never snitched, take the charge, maintained a lie
Most nights can't front, tears soak the satin
Waking up in cold sweats, glitters from the clashin'

Wiping off the toilet seat from pissin' all the time
Niggas turned snake I hear their hissin all the time
Wifey said a year ago was kissin' all the time
Now she said I changed now I'm missin' all the time
I tried to drown the anger
But drink keeps me bitter
So many things I'm running from so much to reconsider

[Hook: The Black Keys]
Hard Times
Gathering all
Around me
No, No
No, No, No

Black keys, what up!

[Hook: The Black Keys]
Hard Times
Gathering all
Around me
No, No
No, No, No
