[Verse One] [Y.U.]:
Somewhere between my livin' and dyin'
Between tribulation and triumph
I've been tryin' to figure who I am
A nigga who's tryin', eyes on the prize
Strivin' for higher heights right
In the midst of Christ
His fingers balled up in a tight fist
Knowin' I'm worth my weight in gold
They don't recognize it
But I'm on assignment
Time is tickin'
My commitment to my mission is
Like a father takin' care of his kids
The heart is where it lives
That serves as many years been doin' it
But it feels rewardin'
When the audience applaudin' his hard work
At a concert, rockin' until his arms hurt
Could've been doin' dirt but turned the mic on first
My mission on Earth is to reverse the curse Shaton burst
I learned a lot in 29
Half of that I studied rhymes
Spent money buyin' equipment
Lived and moved, 20 times or more
Sleepin' on floors, sacrifice to record
Could win awards for the pain we endured
But I love her for sure
I love her for sure
I love her for sure

[Hook] [Slimkat78]:
Yeah, the pressure might be thick it's just because you're close
? that's how we gain
And I just want to let you know
To not give up
You're on your way
And I just want to let you know
You're close

[Verse Two]:
Somewhere between addition and division
Split decisions, folks you used to be close
But now they isn't
I distribute my word when I give it
That means I'm in it
Not for the minute
Permanent
Respect's a term I live by
Learning to fly also means knowing how to fall
You gotta crawl
You as fast as The Flash
This I had to just ask
What could possess a man to put pussy before the fam?
Now we at a slant sideways
But go back to when I blaze
But nowadays
It's space in between
You was chasin' like a fiend for that wetness
And ass was the weapon at hand, man
You could've just went and gave me the heads up
Had me walkin' under ladders, havin' 10 years of bad luck
Man look
You fucked the whole plan up like a gambler
Bettin' his last gram on an ass bet
Respect, used to have that
Immensely
Was full of admiration now the tank is on empty
For actin' all flimsy
Swear to God it couldn't have been me
It's under my control
You should know, you an MC
You changed the whole energy behind my drive
In '99 I tried, but nigga nah it's hard seein' your mentor
Shown him snake his way similar to Supintor
I try not to trip but in the midst sometimes it's hard to resist
That God my art is where my heart is
So regardless I'mma progress
Soldier promoted to a sargent, bang my own chest
I'm dealin' with low stress
Takin' mo' steps
No pest changed the focus, and know that
I don't be actin' like I'm made of steel
Because the greatest gift given to man is to feel
We'll built at a later time
See I done made my mind
In the course layin' a line
Been writin' a rhyme, I guess I'm fine
Designed
To let your eyes get wise
So check it out y'all it's Y.U. one time

[Slimkat78]:
Life has those moments
But don't give up cause you're close
Friends sometimes lose focus
It's sad cause you thought that you were close
You know
Pain, it's alright to show it
Yeah, I know I hurts y'all but folks
But that's just what growth is
It's movin' on, let's make a toast
You know

[Hook]:
Yeah, the pressure might be thick it's just because you're close
? that's how we gain
And I just wanna let you know
To not give up
Live up to your name
What people say don't mean a thang
You're on your way
And I just want to let you know
Yeah, the pressure might be thick it's just because you're close
? that's how we gain
And I just wanna let you know
To not give up
Live up to your name
What people say don't mean a thang
You're on your way
And I just want to let you know
You're close
