In the Bag

By L. Scatterbrain

In a lapse in the gaps of the mind or the memory
Dismemberments the penalty of traps that are set to be
Sprung like a gunshot, one by one caught
Short-term loss makes my long-term unblocked
Marksman, and I’m tracking it for one shot
Efficiency is the mission, ‘bout to flare up like a sunspot
I got a jones for the headphones and monitors with sweet zones
In the labs where the heat’s on
No crystal meth or pistol deaths
Making official steps to boost my fiscal health
Without compromising integrity
Unlikely ‘cause lies be comprising this industry
Fuck smiling and sleeping with the enemy
I’m the keeper of my destiny independence what’s best to me
And pretentiously they step to me
‘cause my obsession be spittin’ professionally

For the goals that I’ve set forth,
For the road I won’t get off…It’s in the bag
And for the suckers that fronted on me
And now they want to claim a homie…It’s in the bag
Or like the trees that you broke up
That you rolled up and toked up…It’s in the bag
Or on this road that I kept on
And I’m still getting slept on…It’s in the bag

It’s been, under consideration
The moves that I’m making, doubts that I’m creating
Shaking, my worn faith like temptation
‘til I feel the vibration and mounting motivation
Still it lingers like an ache in
the back of my head, packed in like lead so it’s weighing
heavily. I gave it my better be-
fore it was my best, now my best bets to step to the
A.M. midnight oil blazin’
Sacrifice sleep to keep the stakes raising
In and out of the Los Angeles basin
I keep up the pace while cats be freebasing
In other words, time wastin’
By lacing the beat, my feet stay in the race and
pound the concrete and reap through preparation
rewards when I’m on the boards with inspiration
For the goals that I’ve set forth,
For the road I won’t get off…It’s in the bag
And for the suckers that fronted on me
And now they want to claim a homie…It’s in the bag
Or like the trees that you broke up
That you rolled up and toked up…It’s in the bag
Or on this road that I kept on
And I’m still getting slept on…It’s in the bag

It’s a race against the clock some
Deadlines are headlines in chronicles of costing
More than all your options have weighed out
You’re thinking how your life would’ve resulted had you stayed out
Of the business that you’ve laid out
With the hunger it’s no wonder that your engine never gave out
But it seems that you’re a slave now
To the rhythm but you’re giving it a minute to get paid now
It’s a labor of love above pay how-
ever forever’s what it seems as you stay down
Refuse to lose, give up, or lay down
Can’t afford the Concorde or better than a Greyhound
And road trip through the rain while
I focus my scope, it’s vital that I don’t aim wild
But I’ll ride ‘til the streets unpaved how
ever the terrain, I play the game to stay around

For the goals that I’ve set forth,
For the road I won’t get off…It’s in the bag
And for the suckers that fronted on me
And now they want to claim a homie…It’s in the bag
Or like the trees that you broke up
That you rolled up and toked up…It’s in the bag
Or on this road that I kept on
And I’m still getting slept on…It’s in the bag
