SPECTACULAR

(Chorus)
The challenge is tough
But I know I've got the stuff to be just spectacular
Can't you see it in lights? (2X)

(Verse 1)
See all I know is that it's got to happen
I could feel it in my bones since I started rappin
An 11 year old when ciphers start attracting
Slipped me into the zone
Catching the ill reactions
That's when I knew I was home
I took my craft seriously and made it my own
Practiced stage presence in the mirror when I was alone
And autographs in the margin of my composition
Peeping Pump It Up praying I'd be in that position
Listen
It wasn't far fetched for a snot-nosed n*gga
Imagine how easy it looks now that I've grown bigger
We got songs
We make hits to get figures
It's a scheme like a pyramid tip your malt liquor to the sky
A toast to the days of the dive, done playing 'em
Now in the packed clubs we're slaying 'em
Without the scene even getting grisly
Is you with me?
We them champs now, why we feeling so specticky

(Chorus)
The challenge is tough
But I know I've got the stuff to be just spectacular
Can't you see it in lights? (2X)

(Verse 2)
my fear is for others if i die
my worst flaw
be it my greatest pride
as i breathe and i'm live
there's gotta be something better than getting by
i sweat it
upon i bet
it's the way that I survive
I’ve got plenty of best friends on some mutual ascension
savory life stock
barrel of comprehension
aged invention
many a wild child wicked women and wise men make up this small circle of zen
I'll tell the tide turning
watching the old mind learning
toil for the yearning
midnight oil burning
mark making stake baby with the big town blues fading away
I'm taking the train to gravy
it's just a matter of time
been on the grind on the road with the spectac rap and grand design
so what I'm searching for I'll find
success will be mine
mama don't cry for me
I'm gonna be fine (can't you see it in lights?)

(Chorus)
The challenge is tough
But I know I've got the stuff to be just spectacular
Can't you see it in lights? (2X)

(Verse 3)
Sometimes it seems such a stretch
We need more than beads and a net
For these dreams that we catch
Three parts hard work, one part magic
The information's everywhere
You just gotta know how to grab it
Me and my analysts have run a long road of hope
Perfecting manuscripts
And staying one-up on the okey-doke
Building the boat, seal up the holes 'til it floats
A realistic approach when goals are grandiose
But, damn, we broke
Let's hit the streets, increase the promotion
Gotta eat to live, this is the feast that we've chosen
Gotta get around, and this ain't me presupposin'
Take it out west then bring it back east until we coastin'
And let these niggas buy their necklaces
We reinvest 'til we talking' 'bout stadiums and pyrotechnics
Now let's live and breathe
Water seed, build the legacy
Indeed, live the dream, leave the effigy
(Yeah!)

(Chorus)
The challenge is tough
But I know I've got the stuff to be just spectacular
Can't you see it in lights? (2X)
