Kanye West - Closest Thing To Einstein Lyrics

(Intro: Kanye West)
L.A time, regular lavish shit

(Verse: Kanye West)
I can't say no to nobody
And at this rate we gon' both die broke
Got friends that ask me for money knowing I'm in debt
And like my wife said, I still didn't say no
People tryna say I'm going crazy on Twitter
My friends' best advice was to stay low
I guess it's hard to decipher all of the bills
Especially when you got family members on payroll
The media said it was outlandish spendin'
The media said he's way out of control
I just feel like I'm the only one not pretending
I'm not out of control, just nothing they control
I know I'm the most influential
That TIME cover was just confirmation
This generation's closest thing to Einstein
So don't worry about me, I'm fine
I can see a thousand years from now in real life
Shit on the paradigm and shift it when I feel like
No conventional thoughts, don't even question
I know it's anger cause sometimes I get aggressive
And I will get a lecture, we down with the mission
Did it with no permission, on our own conditions
Most Blacks with money have been beaten to submission
Yeezy with the big house, get it way different
Neva listen to Hollywood producers
Don't stare at money too long, it's Medusa
The OG man gloomy, I had survived
I wasn't supposed to make it past 25

(Hook: Sampha)
And you're lookin' in the church in the night sky
Wonderin' whether doves want to say hi
I've been lookin' in the church in the night sky
And you wonder where is God in the nightlife
Yeah, you're lookin' in the church in the night sky
Wonderin' whether doves want to say hi
I feel like I'm home, babe

(Verse 2: Kanye West)
I've been getting the spins and millions more to come
I more than illegally download it without you folks with the drama
Believe in the children, listen to the kids, bro
Looking fo' familia, go and get your kids ho
One time my mama told the minister about the presentation
She sat back and smiled
Black on black rhymes is worse than black on black crime
You should hear the truth on how to make a dime
Most black men couldn't balance a checkbook
But buy a new car, talking 'bout how my neck look
Well it all looks played
Four hundred years later, we buying our own chains
Blind as we force brothers so the devil working hard
When the family stick together and see through the mirage
Cause most dreams perceptions, thoughts and reality
Who the real owner if your boss gets a salary?
I am one with the people
I am one with the people
I've been working enlightenin' this dream
Checking Instagram comments to crowdsource my self esteem
Every last thing too much, it do too much
Cause if I'm up way too much, and mad as such
I'm _____(?) it's what happened
Tell the people they'll see how right now it's not just rapping
God, I'll uphold myself before the lord
Drop my ego and confidence with my last resort
I know, I know he got a plan, I know I'm on your beams
One set of footsteps, you was carrying me
What I tell 'em on the news when they was burying me
One set of footsteps, you was carrying me
When I was negotiatin' with Apple, it was Larrying me
Telling Tim Cook to call me, I was scary to see
Only took a hundred million and they compare me to Hov
I was already gettin' it when we only have a stove
But it's betta that I stayed at home with my folks
Cause if Jay a billionaire then I'ma neva go broke
Only thing I ask is next time I'm on stage we all go
We all go
Not just by myself, lookin' for niggas like where's Waldo
She got the same shoes as my wife but she copped 'em at Aldo
Modern day MJ with an off the wall flow

(Hook: Sampha)
Flyin', flyin', walking all ova me
Walkin' all ova me
And everything I've eva sent to you bring
Flying, flying, flying ovaseas
Flying ovaseas
Oh, anywhere, everythin' but in between
And you're lookin' in the church in the night sky
Wondering whether doves want to say hi
I've been lookin' in the church in the night sky
And you wonder where is God in the nightlife
Yeah, you're lookin' in the church in the night sky
Wonderin' whetha doves want to say hi
I've been lookin' in the church in the night sky
And you wonder where is God in the nightlife

(Bridge: Sampha)
These faces that I see
Please _____(?) somethin' for me
You've been treatin' me like I'm invisible
Too invisible to you
Oh invisible _____(?)
Closer, closer what you say
Will you stand closer?
Will you stand? now I want to know
With my hands on the bible
Tell the truth and nothin' but the whole truth
And you're goin' to, follow me, follow me
To the barbershop, arms around my _____(?)
Make me build a temple for my _____(?)

(Hook: Sampha)
