[Intro: Jhene Aiko]
Where are we going, why are we slowing down
Where are you going, we should be growing now

(Smoke to it nigga, smoke to it nigga)
Where are we going, we should be slowing down
Where are you going, we should be growing now


[Verse 1]
That’s what she said to me, that place I used to call home
Is just a bed to me,
we don’t even sleep, neighbors can hear her weep
Meanwhile I’m in these streets with everybody, I’m trying to get it
And she know they got me, I watch her feelings watch me

As they staring with the saddest eyes of loneliness
Look each other in the face and barely blink

I tried to make it right but the pen ran out of ink
So if my letters don’t reach you, I hope these lyrics in sync


[Hook: Jhene Aiko]
Where are we going, why are we slowing down
Where are you going, we should be growing now


[Verse 2]
That’s what it said to me, but the place I call ambition
Now dead to me, gone and forgotten,
I’m off track
Like Dale Earnhardt,
my liver rotten, alcoholic tripping
Fucking bad bitches and they got bad intentions
Club night, guys and dolls
Balling out but I’m about to drop the ball

I’m calling out for help, my engineer called
Told me come to the studio but I wanna tell him, nah


[Hook]

[Verse 3]
That’s what he said to me
But that place we call Heaven's unfair to me, only 144 can go
Seven billion people on planet Earth today
Is there something that I don’t know

I know to follow Him rather following people
Or follow vanity cause that means I’m following evil
Guess I’m following evil,
I should follow cathedral
Blessings I need but live like I don’t need you


[Hook]

[Verse 4]
So in conclusion, we all seem to stumble, planning our own demise
Forgetting the big picture and making it wallet size

So to what is important in my life, I apologize
I promise to stay faithful, focused and sanctified
We all get distracted,
the question is
Would you bounce back or bounce backwards? Would you not know
How to act or take action? It’s just a part of life
And if your vision’s impaired, you probably lose it all tonight


[Outro: Jhene Aiko]
Tryna visualize how to get it right but my vision’s so blurry
Tryna slow it down, stay close to the ground, but we’re always in a hurry
And if I could make this world spin a little slower, then I would
Then we could grow a little closer, I think we’re getting closer...
