Lyrics

chorus
I’m taking charge
I rush the front
when people try, to hold me back
I make my move
I cannot lose
cause sit and wait
I can’t go for that
head to the sky
won’t be denied
y’all killing me with the bad vibes
if it don’t apply
it cannot fly
and/so I put that sh*t on standby (x2)

Verse1

lookin for peace of mind
on my getaway
all the bullsh*t
gotta sit and wait
so i board the plane
no carry-on
all this dead weight
leave it at the gate

cause it’s past time
to leave behind
all the stressful sh*t
that don’t help me
walking around with a worried mind
and a restless soul it ain’t healthy

so I’m trying to change
like planes do
when it came to
the connecting flight
things went wrong
with my last move
so the next move
I gotta get right

so I’m looking forward
to what’s ahead
if you negative
I don’t hear hear you
planes are sorta like spaceships
they don’t come equipped
with no rear view

at the same time
I stay on grind
I don’t know a clock
you can turn back
you only get what you give
and what you got
you earned that

so I decided
to get excited
I know that I can be worth more
find the peace that I searched for
I can travel this earth more

see the things that I never saw
thinking things that I never thought
roadblocks is just obstacles
ain’t nothing impossible
cause I work the plan
and I execute
pull the trigger when it’s time to shoot
...put slow movers on standby
if it weigh me down
then it can’t fly

chorus

Verse 2

you been living your life on standby
waiting for the best time
to make your move
ain’t getting picked
keep getting skipped
feeling like a record
you missed your Groove

so now you like Stella
tryna out hella
things to get your groove back
they said you can’t make it
they said you ain’t good
please don’t let em prove that

on the flip side
you shouldn’t be living
just to prove other people wrong
do the things that make you happy
do the keep you strong
life is struggle
strive for self
work your plan
stack your wealth
go to war
and do for self
but pray for peace
and ask for help

sounding like contradiction
we live in fact not fiction
don’t worry bout competition
focus on your own ambition
raise your expectations
gain your elevation
fuel your motivation
but watch your conversation

you see words got strength
words got power
words shape your reality
so speak up louder
when you ask for what you want
you gotta want for what you ask
stand for what you love
or get by passed

I’m taking charge
I rush the front
when people try, to hold me back
I make my move
I cannot lose
cause sit and wait
I can’t go for that
head to the sky
i won’t be denied
y’all killing me with the bad vibes
it don’t apply
it cannot fly
and/so I put that sh*t on standby
