"Against the grain" in lyrics
My devotion is handlin my business nigga keep on coastin
Where you goin I been there came back as lonely homie
Steady flowin against the grain niggaz STILL don't know me
It's about the money in this rap shit, this crap shit
This is the life I chose for me and this is the way I chose to be
A lot of fools is holding me but that’s just the way it’s supposed to be
Never win, against the grain, always playing 20 games
Stand for something dawg or you gonna fall for anything but later for that
And mimic every move you make, Slim, you great
But wait, can't you see I'm only here to entertain
I gotta be the one to go against the grain
Cause man, I see it, feel it, live it, but it's inhumane
What this dying world could use is a willing man of god
Who dares to go against the grain and works without applause;
A man who'll raise the shield of faith, protecting what is pure;
You need not to find a cure for everything that makes you weak.
You need not to reach for the stars when life becomes so dark,
And when the wind does blow against the grain,
You must follow your heart,
It's direction influences, it's loneliness, it's nothing (it's nothing)
It's right, it's heart, it's reason, it's damnation, it's deam, it's illusion
It's hand against the grain, it's blunder
It's the way of acting, it's untidiness, perfect affection, it's ambush
I put KO to eat broken tiles
Dodged for a bit bars, that due to my Seleção
Foot to the floor against the grain in one way
When the experts saw us as vigilantes to Prix-Unique
We speak of fighting to resist this world
But what about the battle within us? (Yeah)
If we have chosen to live against the grain
Then why are we all facing the same way?
I learned one way then front the opposite
I learned behind the beat, now I learned on top of it
I do go against the grain
I do take bigger pictures that don’t fit in the frame
Load up the mic and bust one, cuss while I pus from
My skull, ‘cause it's pain in my brain vein, money maintain
Don't go against the grain, simple and plain
When I was young at this I used to do my thing hard
Don't that go against the teachings that Ye taught for?
Yo, Tip, I hear your side and everybody talk, though
But ain't goin' against the grain everything I fought for?
Prolly so, Ye, but where you tryna go with this?
