Adapt

It's time for me to relax and adapt 
To all the things, I've packed on my plate,
Get down to brass tax
Overcome and advance 
Know the stuff that just can't
Ever be, left to chance


Gotta learn to take it slow
I've been rushing around For so
Long if it's not full speed
Its hard for me to know which pace to go
I get so, easily bored
And it's hard to conform
To what society see's as normalcy
And to be totally honest
I don't give two s**** 
About what the Jones be
Doing next door to me, I'm just
Trying to decomplicate
The way i operate
Stop sweating the small stuff
By the time my cars parked I may 
have sweated out 10 pounds of water weight 
I gotta stay, in it for the long haul 
My rock star mentality
Just became to damaging
To me and truthfully
How much savagery can i keep 
Mananging without it being a problem 

It's time for me to relax and adapt 
To all the things, I've packed on my plate,
Get down to brass tax
Overcome and advance 
Know the stuff that just can't
Ever be left to chance

I'd say it's, time for an agonizing
Re-evaluation of the whole situation
Before it all falls down like precipitation 
And gets me tripping on folks,
Feet losing  grip of the pavement,
It's definately challenging   
Balancing on slippery slopes
Gotta learn from your losses
Embrace the new challenges you face
& Keep makin progress
You will always have options
God gave you two legs
So wouldn't be stuck like a starfish
This verse is, iceburg s***
At first it seems small
But underneath it all
The work that, I've done is quite large
But you can't observe it,
Because it's submerged beneath the surface
When my lights on upstairs
I got to make the blinds fall 
Twist the crap that makes em overlap
So it don't blind y'all

It's time for me to relax and adapt 
To all the things, I've packed on my plate,
Get down to brass tax
Overcome and advance 
Know the stuff that just can't
Ever be left to chance
