00:00:34
Look, if you had one shot, or one
opportunity

00:00:43
To seize everything you ever wanted, in
one moment
Would you capture it, or just let it slip
?

00:00:52
Yo! His palms are sweaty, knees weak,
arms are heavy
There's vomit on his sweater already:
Mom's spaghetti

00:00:59
He's nervous, but on the surface he looks
calm and ready
To drop bombs, but he keeps on forgetting

00:01:04
What he wrote down, the whole crowd goes
so loud
He opens his mouth, but the words won't
come out

00:01:10
He's choking, how? Everybody's joking now
The clock's run out, time's up, over—
blaow!

00:01:16
Snap back to reality, ope there goes
gravity, ope
There goes Rabbit, he choked, he's so mad
but he won't

00:01:22
Give up that easy, no, he won't have it,
he knows
His whole back's to these ropes, it don't
matter, he's dope

00:01:28
He knows that but he's broke, he's so
stagnant, he knows
When he goes back to this mobile home,
that's when it's

00:01:33
Back to the lab again yo, this whole
rhapsody
Better go capture this moment and hope it
don't pass him, and

00:01:38
You better lose yourself in the music
The moment, you own it, you better never
let it go

00:01:43
You only get one shot, do not miss your
chance to blow
This opportunity comes once in a lifetime,
yo

00:01:49
You better lose yourself in the music
The moment, you own it, you better never
let it go

00:01:55
You only get one shot, do not miss your
chance to blow
This opportunity comes once in a lifetime,
yo! You better…

00:02:01
His soul's escaping through this hole
that is gaping
This world is mine for the taking, make
me king

00:02:07
As we move toward a New World Order
A normal life is boring; but
superstardom's

00:02:12
Close to post-mortem, it only grows
harder
Homie grows hotter, he blows, it's all
over

00:02:17
These hoes is all on him, coast-to-coast
shows
He's known as the Globetrotter, lonely
roads

00:02:23
God only knows, he's grown farther from
home, he's no father
He goes home and barely knows his own
daughter

00:02:29
But hold your nose, 'cause here goes the
cold water
These hoes don't want him no mo', he's
cold product

00:02:34
They moved on to the next schmoe who
flows
He nose-dove and sold nada, and so the
soap opera

00:02:40
Is told, it unfolds, I suppose it's old,
partner
But the beat goes on: da-da-dom, da-dom,
dah-dah, dah-dah

00:02:45
You better lose yourself in the music
The moment, you own it, you better never
let it go

00:02:51
You only get one shot, do not miss your
chance to blow
This opportunity comes once in a lifetime,
yo

00:02:56
You better lose yourself in the music
The moment, you own it, you better never
let it go

00:03:02
You only get one shot, do not miss your
chance to blow
This opportunity comes once in a lifetime,
yo! You better…

00:03:08
No more games, I'ma change what you call
rage
Tear this motherfuckin' roof off like two
dogs caged

00:03:13
I was playin' in the beginning, the mood
all changed
I've been chewed up and spit out and
booed off stage

00:03:19
But I kept rhymin' and stepped right in
the next cypher
Best believe somebody's payin' the Pied
Piper

00:03:25
All the pain inside amplified by the
Fact that I can't get by with my nine-to-

00:03:30
Five and I can't provide the right type
of life for my family
'Cause man, these goddamn food stamps don
't buy diapers

00:03:37
And it's no movie, there's no Mekhi
Phifer, this is my life
And these times are so hard, and it's
gettin' even harder

00:03:44
Tryna feed and water my seed, plus teeter
-totter
Caught up between bein' a father and a
prima donna

00:03:50
Baby mama drama, screamin' on her, too
much for me to wanna
Stay in one spot, another day of monotony
's

00:03:55
Gotten me to the point I'm like a snail,
I've got
To formulate a plot or end up in jail or
shot

00:04:01
Success is my only motherfuckin' option—
failure's not
Mom, I love you, but this trailer's got

00:04:06
To go; I cannot grow old in Salem's Lot
So here I go, it's my shot: feet, fail me
not

00:04:12
This may be the only opportunity that I
got

00:04:14
You better lose yourself in the music
The moment, you own it, you better never
let it go

00:04:20
You only get one shot, do not miss your
chance to blow
This opportunity comes once in a lifetime,
yo

00:04:26
You better lose yourself in the music
The moment, you own it, you better never
let it go

00:04:31
You only get one shot, do not miss your
chance to blow
This opportunity comes once in a lifetime,
yo! You better…

00:04:39
You can do anything you set your mind to,
man
