The Calm



I’m just so far gone, October’s own

Please leave me alone

Drunk off champagne, screaming in the phone

See my house is not a home, fuck is going on


Where did we go wrong? Where do we belong?

Caught up in the game and it’s one I can’t postpone

Meaning if it rains I’m the one it’s raining on

With my diamond chain’s on still nothing setting stone


Women borrow sweaters that I spray with my cologne

And tell me don’t forget them and I promise that I won’t

Feeling so distant from everyone I’ve known

To make everybody happy I think I would need a clone


Places we get flown, parties that we’ve thrown

I done more for this city than these rappers that have blown

It’s only been three years, look at how I’ve grown

I’m just in my zone, I call this shit the calm


Yeah, but I’m the furthest thing from calm

Dedicated to my mom and I swear my word is bond

Everything will be okay and it won’t even take that long

You can see it in my face even read it on my palm


Leader of the new school, it’s proven and it’s known

I’m sittin’ in a chair but in the future it’s a throne

I know you like to worry, it’d be better if you don’t



You know everything gon’ be all right, I promise

I apologize to you now, put y’all in this position [Incomprehensible]

40 Mama always say don’t ask permission

Just ask forgiveness you know so uh, forgive me, yeah, yeah


And life is so insane

Look what I became, tryna make a name

All my first dates are interrupted by my fame

Because every picture taken is a vantage you can gain


They love it when you smile

Unaware that it’s a strain

It’s a curse you gotta live with

When you’re born to entertain


Women need attention therefore women will complain

Develop hatred for men and say you’re the one to blame

Tryna enjoy myself with Terrence in Miami at the game

I just wish he knew how much it really weighed like Dwayne


It’s a weight that’s on my chest who ever spottin’ me is playin’

So I’m liftin’ all alone, trynin’ not to get a sprain

Hopin’ Western Junior doin’ currency exchange

‘Cause my dad called, it got me feeling guilty and ashamed


Like I had a Rolls and I went and got a range

And he payin’ for his cigarettes

With some dollars and some change, damn


And I can only feel his pain

‘Cause in Memphis, Tennessee there is only so much to attain

So I’m fillin’ out the form at the counter once again

He say he love me, I just hope he doesn’t say that shit in vain


I’m why your girls heart is in a slain call me Heartbreak Drake

I’m the hardest one to tame, as a man

I’m just honest as an artist, I’m a king

With my own set of problems that be sittin’ on my brain


Yeah, and see this is the thang

What they viewin’ as braggin’ is the way that I maintain

The shit I write while starin’ out the window of a plane

Is the single handed reason I remain me, yeah


I said I call this shit the calm

But I’m the furthest thing from calm

That’s why I’m putting on but they always wanna ask

What type of act you putting on, like damn
