Reserve
Wohran Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

General reserve
Is filled bottles and hurt
Never take a break
Is how often I work
Heard they yelling burn
When I spit sermon
Levels over normal
But this shit still working
And
I'm determined
To be a top player
See me making dunks
While you busy doing layups
I'll never fade away
Cause I'm already to gone
Never take a break
Cause I don't have time to do wrong
And this long ass night
Turned into a sword fight
Levels above in height
With no sight
Never to gone
Cause I keep the bud light
Yeah my blood type is gold
I don't fuck with the coal
Pressure makes diamonds
And I've been under stone
The best in my climate
And that shit is the north
I'm a pro player
And spitting's my sport
You see me laying facts
So it's hard to retort
I never thought
It could be this rough nah
I never thought
It could be this rough nah ah
I never thought
It could be this rough
You gotta start from the bottom if you wanna reach top
I never thought
It could be this rough nah
I never thought
It could be this rough nah ah
I never thought
It could be this rough
You gotta start from the bottom if you wanna reach top
I've been thinking bout the current world
And what's going on
My reflections have me deep in what I'm thinking is wrong
To many trapped inside
Living their lives
Through the screen
I've been there myself so I know how it be
You feeling lost like your wasting away your late teens
Or even adults there's playing with no team
I don't think we can solve it in the blink of eye
But keep your hopes high and look to the sky
It's not only about
Bettering yourself
This problem isn't simple and it needs more than help
The society we built
Is what's keeping us down
Feeling stuck in a rut and your missing your crown
The love is lost and that's hard to get around
It's all about the media and who's making the most sound
Stop trynna be loud and do yourself to the fullest
The only thing that can stop you is the lead from a bullet
I never thought
It could be this rough nah
I never thought
It could be this rough
You gotta start from the bottom if you wanna reach top
I never thought
It could be this rough nah
I never thought
It could be this rough nah ah
I never thought




It could be this rough
You gotta start from the bottom if you wanna reach top
