about

This is my personal favorite song on the Album. The inspiration for it actually came from a dark place. I was contemplating quitting. As a man, more importantly as a leader, you second guess yourself and your strategy sometimes. Especially when there seems to be a lack of results despite all of your efforts. That's where I was, I was depressed, I was weary. Then like a boxer getting his second wind I became more motivated then I'd been in months. When I heard this beat my hand instantly was moving unconsiously on the paper. It was like I got possessed by a spirit and the song wrote itself. When I looked down and read what I wrote, I realized these are feelings I've had since the day I began rapping. I sincerely hope that when someone hears this song my words give them courage, the strength to carry on, and the power to continue to believe in themselves.

lyrics

I been patiently waiting I been biding my time/ At war wit myself, my insides look like Vietnam/ About to explode whenever I hear drum rolls/ remind me of some bongos and my mindset is still congo/ So that means my goal is to go whereever Kong goes/ Catch me in a minute on top of entire states yo/ the empire state yo/ the emperor of states go mirror me fate just make a claim and take your state yo/ I been a bit belligerent/they doused my flame rekindled it/ had the ultimate fight for my slice just like Kimbo did/ and now I feel like I'm closer than I ever been to touching constellations/ and I did it with no spaceship!/

Hook:
Since Day 1 I been staring off in the sky/ I been planning for a liftoff I just wanna touch the sky/
Don't tell me it's impossible if you ain't tried/ Since day 1 I been staring off in the sky/
Since Day 1

V2

I ain't never coming down touching pavement/ too close to hellfire, too close to hatred/ I'm NEO and you just entered in my matix/ Limit is your mind but ain't no boxes where I'm staying/ it's all inception, just subliminal suggestions/ that the minimal exception or the missed stone in your stepping/ is the loophole in they method, the foothole for successes/ quit looking for a handout, play the one in your possession/ Make your mark till it's no question, just push it every second/ I'll be spitting till my teeth impact and you can feel the flesh rip/

Hook:

Bridge:

Since DAY 1 (repeat 4)
Take me, Take me to the Constellations/ Take me to Outer Space/
Take me to the Constellations/ Cuz I want out of this place

Hook:
