Lyrics

[Verse 1: Octavian]

I been drinkin' and smokin' too much, that shit damages
Gimme it all, I can do it myself, I can manage it
Two seconds, I gotta leave, you know how it is
You and me, we can take on the world, we can be savages

[Pre-Chorus: Octavian]

I call my dealer, said, "Share the white with all of us" (Light)
I told him, "We've been so nice, don't turn on us" (Don't turn on us)
Ain't it funny how the times flies by (Flies by) so fast?
If we do all of these lines, we go up

[Chorus: Octavian]

(Oh) And if I look into your eyes, and we can realize (Oh)
(we can realize, oh we can realize)

[Break: Octavian]

Before I commence and just, rhyme to this (Rhyme to this)
(Ayy) Ayy, go hard as shit man

[Verse 2: Octavian]

It's definitely going down (Down)
Find a pagan on the strip, spin him 'round (Spin him 'round)
Big man talking shit 'til we pin him down (Pin him down)
Big man talking shit 'til we lick him down (Until I lick him down)
Far enough, I'ma spin you around
Put the big **** in your belly then spin it 'round (Spin it 'round)
You can ask crimbo if I been about
Free him out (Free him out), I don't need to get the pictures out

[Pre-Chorus: Octavian]

I call my dealer, said, "Share the white with all of us"
I told him, "We've been so nice, don't turn on us" (Don't turn on us)
Ain't it funny how the times flies by (Flies by) so fast?
If we do all of these lines (These lines), we go up

[Chorus: Octavian]

(Oh) And if I look into your eyes, and we can realize (Oh)

[Bridge: Octavian]

You know that we can be immortal, immortal
Are you loyal? Yeah (Oh, immortal)
I'm just praying' that she loyal, is she loyal? Yeah
Recoil, yeah (Is she loyal?)
I don't talk too much, man
I don't talk man
Tryna find a lit, and a little mercy (Oh)
I don't talk too much, man
Came out silent
Came out silent
Came out silent
Came out silent

[Outro: 2D & Octavian]

Ohh, it's a beautiful day (Is she loyal?)
Ohh, it's a beautiful day (Is she loyal? Is she loyal?)
Ohh, it's a beautiful day (Immortal, immortal)
Ohh, it's a beautiful day I don't talk too much, man
I don't talk man
Tryna find a lit, and a little mercy
I don't talk too much, man
Came out silent (Immortal)
