​Stop Fooling Yourself

This song is by Skyzoo and 9th Wonder and appears on the album Cloud 9: The 3 Day High (2006).

Feels somethin' like

I solemnly swear
What I perform in the booth
All of it is truth

I solemnly swear
What I perform in the booth
All of it is truth

I solemnly swear
What I perform in the booth
All of it is truth

Goes somethin' like this

Uh, to whoever it may concern
If you listenin', I'm lookin' for a place to turn
See it seems like, this is all I want out of life
But it's the other way around, I wanna do right
But it's moreso a question of responsibilities
So the lights stay on, but my conscience is killin' me
Gettin' my Mariano on, pitcher perfect
Still inside, I fear the Lord like "is it worth it?"
Huh, at first I say "no"
But when I open my closet, it makes say so - fuck it
And this is hustler haven, see I'm not alone
'Cause he would say that I got faith, or I got a home
So I ask God if he still love us
I don't always wanna be this drug dealin' ma'fucker but
I was playin' on, with opposite plans
And I ain't even have the decency to wash my hands

So he spoke through the clouds like

Boy, stop foolin yourself
Boy, stop

I said nevermind the mistakes, and he said

Boy, stop foolin yourself
Boy, stop

I said I'm tryin' to get through them gates, and he said

Boy, stop foolin yourself
Boy, stop

I said I'm tryin' to switch my ways, and he said

Boy, stop foolin yourself
Boy, stop

Searchin' for a way out of the bottom
Without shootin' the 3, or tryin' to serve product
I'm really just tryin' ta defy the odds
A 9 to 5 is callin' me, but I'm tryin' ta dodge
I really wanna do the school thing
The so called not cool thing
'Cause I'm gettin' tired of movin' things
So maybe Howard or Morehouse or Clark-Atlanta
But all of my friends peddle crack and spark hammers
I told 'em we could still be hood and do somethin' more
Wit our lives
And they all look surprised like
"Wasn't you the same ma'fucker?"
"That showed us how to cook up and cut the butter?"
I said "yeah but I guess I sort of had an epiphany"
"I'm tryin' to take this ride, and y'all don't wanna
Trip wit me?"
Got into NC Central and I was glad
I ripped my acceptance letter in half

Cause my dudes kept tellin' me

Boy, stop foolin yourself
Boy, stop

Tried to change my grind and they replied

Boy, stop foolin yourself
Boy, stop

I said "you changed wit time," and they was dyin' like

Boy, stop foolin yourself
Boy, stop

So I changed my mind, and stayed outside like

Boy, stop foolin yourself
Boy, stop

They say you are what you are, and you been what you been
Played the corner so long, I blend with the wind
Mind over matter
Money from the grind is a factor
Tryin' to get it wit mines gon' matter
You are what you are, and you been what you been
Played the corner so long, I blend with the wind
Mind over matter
Money from the grind is a factor
Tryin' to get it wit mines gon' matter

Cause everything else is really like

Boy, stop foolin yourself
Boy, stop

I'm playin' tug 'o war wit myself like

Boy, stop foolin yourself
Boy, stop

'Cause if I try to call for some help it's like

Boy, stop foolin yourself
Boy, stop

Scared to go to the Lord for help like

Boy, stop foolin yourself
Boy, stop

So I just say fuck it

I solemnly swear
What I perform in the booth
All of it is truth

I solemnly swear
What I perform in the booth
All of it is truth

I solemnly swear
What I perform in the booth
All of it is truth

Goes somethin' like
