[[Automatic pencil sharpener sound effect]]

Over the years..Most my peers lying in the dirt...got lost in the struggle wit no father to run to, no siblings to bug you, just a mother to love you/I guess young niggas forced to smoke a few wit the local crews/& niggas at school always wanna fuck with you cuz niggas rocking Jordan's & Momz saying these Chuck's a do/show love as a kid Pops was reluctant to...show me how to ride a bike...show a nigga how to fight/I taught myself everything I know... so when I blow ...its to myself everything I owe/save ya jokes for the deck; take shit personally/cuz ill palm a 380 for the lady that birth me/tend to black out from the world when I'm venting verbally/sweat in every noun?, blood in every verb? Certainly/can't be mad at that man for pitching dummies/his family hungry & he had to get to the money/peeped a white collar staring at em differently, funny/that thought overlapped by his Sis with kicks in her tummy/sunny days turn to cold night...socks are doubled...forced to cuddle...nobody cooking but the stove lights/he so nice but he knows he's no carpenter/& his pencil's broke, no point, no sharpener...

[[Hook]]
In this world you gotta sharpen ya self....(ya self)
Keep on reaching you aint far from the shelf.....(the shelf)
And if u fall you can pardon ya self....(ya self)
Cuz in this world you gotta sharpen ya self...(ya self)

Just....
Keep twisting (keep twisting) keep twisting (keep twisting) x2

Damn my fucking 'point' broke again?...Just start off slowly young man & keep twisting....

He aint wanna take part; my movie moved on/different locations; always moved on/Futon; it folded out perfectly here's ya chance to read the script...made me only believe in Chris/better believe dis shit...chose my own road to follow/a hefty cast but only like one Role...model cars was rarely ever into those/rather models hopping outta cars in expensive clothes/I tend to know when I'm losing balance...or equilibrium/supposed to clash HE..I never live wit em/helping hand or pat on the back was never giving one/director cut the supporting cast must of got rid of them/but through in sum extra roles I'm grateful for the women friends/blockbuster weekends; headed for my dividends/my point is made.. It Was Written.. no cheat codes/I award myself no need for no se-quel cuz....

[[Bridge]]
(Pencil scribbling & snapping sound effect)
Ahh FUCK!........

Well I know you thinking why NOT just use a pen?...
Cuz THEN their would be nothing for me to sharpen...(stupid)
A ballpoint...You just tryna be well-rounded...
I'm on point....I'm just tryna peak hell's mountains...
And one point...wasn't a single drop of confidence
Ok I'm lying...its just now I acknowledge it...& nah
I aint tryna kick knowledge kid thought I was Tré they tried to turn me to a college kid...I want the DoughBoy...Graduate in a recession, none of em employed...its all null & void....advise you to use ya own tools to grow cuz if you aint a genius or rich you paying off student loans black.... I just wanted you to know that....
