CHORUS: Too nice for y’all, benevolent, mad styles, you might never get, that means don’t question it, take the day off, do it for your benefit AMBEEZ: Automatically my focus intact, to make new joints no holding them back, I just elevate straight over the track, and reach new heights all over the map, we trailblazer like Portland for more wins, while too many got it twisted like contortion, I break molds, stretched out with my hands high, tech pants with the 9-7s mad fly, if you don’t feel what I’m saying, thats mega sus, I go for miles - 35 on the pegasus, mind state everything is in order, to make the kinda music that’ll fit my persona, even when I chill, I’m still working harder, and even on my days off, I still get it poppin, looking at results from the quarter, corduroy fits, just look what I’m sporting CHORUS: Too nice for y’all, benevolent, mad styles, you might never get, that means don’t question it, take the day off, do it for your benefit 
AQUA: It’s kind of hard to be myself lately, when I start speaking the truth it’s like they can’t take it, I go to work and this ignorance isn’t fantastic, all this energy educating a damn racist, no wonder why I’m tired, as long as I inspire to be honest with you the reason I survived is through a lie, must just take a break from all this rap shit, craft shit, focus on my health cause mentally I’m bout to snap (bout to snap), true definition of a man, never cry and work hard gotta pretend, when I’m alone I act the same I’m with a friend, I need you not to be afraid to let me know when I’m wrong (I need that), my growth is testemic where I belong and where I’m at, I focus on my family and that, deserves a holiday off with pay bring it back CHORUS: Too nice for y’all, benevolent, mad styles, you might never get, that means don’t question it, take the day off, do it for your benefit

CHORUS: Not a lot to say, grey skies washed away, bad thoughts & I watched em fade, I can’t stop but not today VERSE1: Used to hope for the best, now I go out & get it, won’t settle for less, spent too many nights stressed, move past then it’s on to the next, no doubt, I’m getting mine, stay focused on the finish line, no time for the relax, spent two, made three back, they ask where’s ambeez, low-key but I’ll be back, wish that I could turn my brain off, they like my style, but it’s not the same cloth, while you’re getting your dream on, I’m probably turning the machine on, so for now I hold the crown, no stopping, no slowing down. CHORUS: Not a lot to say, grey skies washed away, bad thoughts & I watched em fade, I can’t stop but not today VERSE2: Go ahead, crack the Jameson, you know we always play to win, headline, main event, do work, pay the rent, still putting it together, timeless joints, that means forever, still trying to get extra, can’t sleep, won’t rest up, think I’m chill but I’m not though, rock the bass like Jaco, Halifax to Toronto, Backburner fam, y’all know, keep plans in motion, planets in orbit, options open, hit the stage with the Lo fit, then I’m out, ghosted
