[Natti] You can only see the stars when it's Don Cheadle black when the chips are down who dips and who reacts? folding under pressure ain't get us to where we at when all hope's lost you battle to get it back in fact, dark times are when heroes shine without them sour grapes there would be no wine let your ego dine, adversity for breakfast zero pride, in settling for less then fighting tooth and nail, no matter who prevails instead of wishing on a star grab a comet by the tail your ship ain't coming in, then you got to make a sale catch the wind and make it sail and hit the ground runnin' til ya heartbeat sound like a battle drum thumpin' those talking 'bout failure ain't talkin' 'bout nothin' you may weather the storm if you don't stop punchin' reach for the stars and you might just touch 'em
[Deacon The Villain] Our money's funny, our change is strange these days ain't sunny and the sea ain't tame we playing games where the rules ain't clearly defined in this coffee black world, knee deep in the grind be a vine in the shade, a salmon in a stream try lookin' for the stars when examining your dreams could go from street singers to pop figures from block niggaz to a brotha that is followin' stock tickers to grow in the night you gotta create light gotta be a gamma ray burst that erase sight no astronomer has seen your incredible gleam and you don't need a telescope to detect dream you blessed with a mind that can see through space on dark nights, in the stars you can find your face just look up and marvel at all the constellations Egyptians built pyramids from these creations
[Natti] Against all odds and against the grain sun becomes shelter in the midst of rain in monsoon proportions them moments of importance when victory's in vain it's the same the blood coursin of course when selfishness inside provides poison apply it to your life and let it sink in like ointment poised when them black clouds come 'round don't back down let haters be theme music playin' in the background
