lyrics

They say that it’s a game and I swear I’ve been Jordan
It’s not the same now I swear I’m Ben Gordon
Late nights, deep thoughts been hoardin'
Trying to make all the quotes that I wrote more important
Instead of working on the freethrow
I’m working on the self now, working on the sequel
Trying to prove to people, I’m somewhat of an equal
Something like a rapper now, something like Skee-Lo
see I wish I was a little bit taller, a baller
I should of studied harder I coulda been a scholar
maybe I should have been a scholar
Get that paper to make more paper and that paper to feed your daughter
But a...that’s a lot of wishin and
I’m wondering who you are when nobody will listening
When nobody is watching
You a sinner, you a saint
Know you always got an option
Come on,

fall back
oh, you know
I'm all that
said i'm a saint and a sinner

Said i'm a saint and a sinner
heart colder than winter when I couldnt afford dinner
I was hungry I was starving on a first world level
thinking maybe I should cut a little deal with the devil
and I ain't trying to get a meal
man, I'm trying to rid the way that the boy used to feel
when everything he wanted was just outta grasp
kept running in the race, kept finishing last uh,
It always circled back to money
always had a couple jobs, always had no money
spoiled little brat always feeling bummy'
but my first pair of J's then they went and stole from me
but who i'm supposed to tell
here's a message to the theives I hope I see your ass in hell
I hope you end up in a cell,
nah, kill em' with the kindness I mean i wish you well
enjoy the day in my shoes,
cause the day that I give up will be the day that I lose
now let it all linger
every loser is a winner, if he doesn't turn to quitter ay'

fall back
oh you know,
i'm all that
said i'm a saint and a sinner

said i'm a saint and a sinner ohhhh

saint and a....
