Joyner Lucas – Evolution lyrics

I wanna expand my brain but I’m trapped in prison
Got me shackled up in chains for the maximum sentence
I’m trynna get out my ways to bring me back to census
And maybe teach myself some game and turn my rags to riches, em
Ain’t no excuses we all started to buy them
Gotta learn to speak yo truth and that’s just part of the process
S*** if I ain’t the solution, guess I’m part of the problem
You pullin’ flowers out the roots when I just wanted to blossom
And I’m exhausted, but I try my best
We need to change because we tired of stress, trynna flex
Bought you a chain, but couldn’t buy respect, I’m not impressed
We can’t evolve if we can’t follow steps, it’s not a test
Tired of frontin’ like we not oppressed
And I thought if I was rich all my problems would be through
‘Til I made a few million and now I got more problems than you
I know it feels good to win, but it hurts a lot when you lose
Don’t ever say what you gon’ unless you followin’ through

I’m talking execution (Execution), uh
I don’t know where I’m goin’, but I’m learnin’ as I’m growin’
That’s the evolution (The evolution)
Hope I don’t finish last, I’m still healin’ from my past
I need some retribution (Retribution)
Did a lot of gettin’ even, but I’m sick and tired of beefin’
What’s the resolution? (Resolution)
I’m talkin’ evolution (Evolution)

I gotta be honest I never thought I would pop this quickly
Feels good to look at my phone and see that Rihanna hit me
Nah, it ain’t on no s*** like that, shorty a goddess to me
Just one of my friends that I can vent to when my conscious get me
Look, I ain’t in to what n***** is doin’, I’m on some other s***
I never been the type to turn up and be on that clubbin’ s***
I’m lookin’ at n***** like bruh, you grown, how you still love this s***?
I rather be home and watch some movies with my son and s***
‘Cause I ain’t trynna impress nobody, that s*** get old quick
Like starin’ at an old flick
Trynna travel back in ’06
Maybe hope for what I won’t get
All that type of every happiness only last until you grow sick
And them lights start to go dim
And the walls start to close in
And the times starts to pass you by
Don’t act surprised
Better be careful of what you ask from God
I had some jobs, s*** I quit and took control, my n****
Got tired of buildin’ companies up that I ain’t own, my n****
It’s time to grow my n****

Evolution (Evolution)
I don’t know where I’m goin’, but I’m learnin’ as I’m growin’
That’s the evolution (The evolution)
Hope I don’t finish last, I’m still healin’ from my past
I need some retribution (Retribution)
Did a lot of gettin’ even, but I’m sick and tired of beefin’
What’s the resolution? (Resolution)
I’m talkin’ evolution (Evolution)
