about

Envy features the words of a jealous rapper watching others succeed.

lyrics

I see a bit of me in my enemies
More often than I see myself in friends of me
If you can better me you threaten my identity
But never identically could you emit my energy
There's no potential, yet I'm still defensive, flow kinetically
So you know I'm superior and rhyming so prophetically
But really I'm pathetically just jealous of you all
Because you're more handsome, more charming, more tall
Or maybe you flow better, no chance, looking at me showing off
You think you know shit? you don't know jack, looking at me going off
Is that yo bitch, mine is better, look at me hoing-off
You're rhyming is a…little behind mine, and your flowings off
Shut up Jack, what a fucking know it all
Everytime he hits the track theres gotta be a show involved
Jealous of the fellas with the power and the fame
Some sinners trade their soul for an hour in the game
And loose it in a minute still I'm trying to get up in it
Cause someone said we're racing and they said that I'm not winning
Where's the finish line, am I in last, when was the beginning
Compare yourself to others, and you'll end alone and sinning
Wait what? My head is spinning, can I ever be the best
If I'm the best at being bad, then I'm the worst at good I guess
Had to make a choice, rhyme dirtier, flow cleaner
I see you green with envy, I swear that I'm greener

I'm jealous of pop song hooks
I'm jealous of the fame, I wonder what it took
I gotta do the same, it's a matter pride
The grass is always greener, on the other side
I'm jealous of hip hop beats
I'm jealous of the medias control over me
I gotta act proud, let the envy hide
The grass is always greener, on the other side

I'm jealous of your best friend
I'm jealous that the dead people know about the end
Which is mightier? The strike of the sword or the pen
Cause I gotta get it write or I'll bore them all again
To the Left, To The Left, where's Ne-Yo, tell him write the hook
Step by step, I need an album movie and a book
(Then I'll) tell my friends to look….now are you impressed?
I made a concept album, did I do it best
Its the seven deadly sins and they're getting me
I've be told, I know I'm my worst enemy
As I get old, there's new ways I'm offending me
Now hot is cold, it's all disordered entropy
Can't you see the grass greener
Glass half empty, but it tastes cleaner
Cash he got plenty, happiness less
Only feels envy, gotta be the best
Science tells me natural selection sets the direction
Of a population, driven by elections of erections
Society is similar it's trends are born then die
I want the F A M E only God knows why
I want to do it richeously I wriggle and I writhe
I'm fighting for attention but don't want to seem to try
If the glass ain't full, it's empty
Until you see there's no you and me, we envy

Can't you see the grass greener
Glass half empty, but it tastes cleaner
Cash he got plenty, happiness less
Only feels envy, gotta be the best
