Worst Comes To Worst

Da, da-da-da, da-da
Da, da-da-da, la-la
Da, da-da-da, da-da
Da, da-da-da, la-la

Da, da-da-da, da-da
Da, da-da-da, la-la
Da, da-da-da, da-da
Da, da-da-da, la-la

I look for God on the daily
Praying that the Reaper
Don't take me in a land controlled by Hades (hey)
I'm feeling hasty, yet I'm moving hesitant
The air, the water and the food
We eat is filled with pestilence
Accompanied by famine and death, it's no choice
But to stay at home, examine yourself, there's low voices
Getting higher as the fire ignites the end of the blunt
Wondering, am I gone make it to see the end of the month?
News flash from the office that give me the views I want
But the image that I get is my president being a cunt
I think people gonna break fast and won't even make it to lunch
So every line that Curry drop is equivalent to a punch

'Cause they smacked us in the face with that bullshit
Now I gotta focus on making my soul lit
Worst come to worst then I'm hoping my soul live
Worst come to worst then I'm clutching the full clip
If worst come to

I talk to God on the daily
Told him that the Reaper can't take me
In this land designed to hate me
Of all things, my mental suffers greatly
They draw guns, so how could lead erase me? I'm baffled
An epic battle where evil and the will to evolve
Is what I'm involved in
Hey God, is earth gon' keep revolving?
Can't you see I'm lost here?
Can't you see we lost here?
Tried to get to Heaven, but we see that Heaven cost here, huh
Pestilence, famine and death, what I'm forgetting?
Who's that sitting straight to the left? War
They say the Horsemen coming
This couldn't be what you summoned
The children hide and they running
My prayers are at your door

'Cause they smacked us in the face with that bullshit
Now I gotta focus on making my soul lit
Worst come to worst then I'm hoping my soul live
Worst come to worst then I'm clutching the full clip
'Cause they smacked us in the face with that bullshit
Now I gotta focus on making my soul lit
Worst come to worst then I'm hoping my soul live
Worst come to worst then I'm clutching the full clip

Line by Line Meaning

I look for God on the daily
Every day, I search for a connection with a higher power


Praying that the Reaper Don't take me in a land controlled by Hades (hey)
I fear death and hope that it doesn't come in a place that feels like hell


I'm feeling hasty, yet I'm moving hesitant
I'm anxious and eager to act, but cautious and unsure


The air, the water and the food We eat is filled with pestilence
Our environment is polluted and contaminated, causing harm to our health


Accompanied by famine and death, it's no choice But to stay at home, examine yourself, there's low voices
In the face of scarcity and mortality, we're left to introspect and confront our inner demons


Getting higher as the fire ignites the end of the blunt Wondering, am I gone make it to see the end of the month?
As we smoke and indulge, we question our lifespan and ability to survive financially


News flash from the office that give me the views I want
I consume sensationalized media to feed my desires for information and entertainment


But the image that I get is my president being a cunt
The media portrays the leader of my country as vulgar and unsavory


I think people gonna break fast and won't even make it to lunch
I believe that society will collapse and many will suffer before the day is through


So every line that Curry drop is equivalent to a punch
Every word in my music is a powerful, impactful blow against the status quo


'Cause they smacked us in the face with that bullshit
The powers that be have deceived and misled us


Now I gotta focus on making my soul lit
I must prioritize self-improvement and spiritual growth


Worst come to worst then I'm hoping my soul live
In the worst scenario, I hope to have a strong sense of self and inner peace


Worst come to worst then I'm clutching the full clip
If necessary, I am prepared to defend myself with deadly force

I maintain a constant dialogue with a higher power


Told him that the Reaper can't take me In this land designed to hate me
I pray that death will not take me in a world that seems to be against me


Of all things, my mental suffers greatly
Above all else, my mind and emotional state are suffering greatly


They draw guns, so how could lead erase me? I'm baffled
They use weapons against me, leaving me puzzled as to how I can defend against them


An epic battle where evil and the will to evolve Is what I'm involved in
I am engaged in a massive struggle between darkness and growth


Hey God, is earth gon' keep revolving?
I question the sustainability of our planet and its continued existence


Can't you see I'm lost here? Can't you see we lost here?
I feel lost and hopeless, and believe that many others share this sentiment


Tried to get to Heaven, but we see that Heaven cost here, huh Pestilence, famine and death, what I'm forgetting?
We strive for something perfect and transcendent, but in reality we're stuck with scarcity and demise


Who's that sitting straight to the left? War They say the Horsemen coming This couldn't be what you summoned The children hide and they running My prayers are at your door
I see violence and conflict all around me, and fear that the end of the world is near. I appeal to a higher power for protection

I look for God on the daily
Prayin' that the Reaper don't take me in a land controlled by Hades
I'm feelin' hasty, yet I'm movin' hesitant
The air, the water, rent, the food we eat is filled with pestilence
Accompanied by famine and death, it's no choice
But to stay at home, examine yourself, there's low voices
Gettin' higher as the fire ignites the end of the blunt
Wonderin' am I gon' make it to see the end of the month?
News flash from the office that give me the views I want
But the image that I get is my president bein' a cunt
I think people gonna break fast and won't even make it to lunch
So every line that Curry drop is equivalent to a punch

'Cause they smacked us in the face with that bullshit
Now I gotta focus on makin' my soul lit
Worst come to worst then I'm hopin' my soul live
Worst come to worst then I'm clutchin' the full clip
If worst come to—

I talk to God on the daily
Told him that the Reaper can't take me
In this land designed to hate me
Of all things, my mental suffers greatly
They draw guns so how could lead erase me? I'm baffled
An epic battle where evil and the will to evolve is what I'm involved in
Hey God, is Earth gon' keep revolvin'?
Can't you see I'm lost here? Can't you see we lost here?
Tried to get to Heaven but we see that Heaven cost here, huh?
Pestilence, famine and death, what I'm forgettin'?
Who's that sittin' straight to the left? War
They say the Horsemen comin'
This couldn't be what you summoned
The children hide and they runnin', my prayers are at your door

'Cause they smacked us in the face with that bullshit
Now I gotta focus on makin' my soul lit
Worst come to worst then I'm hopin' my soul live
Worst come to worst then I'm clutchin' the full clip
'Cause they smacked us in the face with that bullshit
Now I gotta focus on makin' my soul lit
Worst come to worst then I'm hopin' my soul live
Worst come to worst then I'm clutchin' the full clip

Mr. Curry must have done some soul searching during the pandemic. The album sounds cohesive with strong themes about finding yourself and growing individually and as a community.

@GoddamnManbat

So it would seem. Figured out who he really is himself and went all-in on it. Honesty is the best policy.
