"The Alarm" lyrics - BIG K.R.I.T.

"The Alarm"

[Verse: Big KRIT]
(Do you believe) they could call you the greatest
So you pay your bills but you barely made it
(Do you believe) that it's all on your shoulders
And everything would seem clear if you stayed sober
(Do you believe) that your heart is really in it
When you know most these folks ain't impressed with your vision
(Do you believe) that this pep talk
Will keep you in top form when so many fell off
(Do you believe) that the world feels your pain
It's kill or be killed, can you keep what you claimed
(Do you believe) that you really can sustain
This lifestyle, Sky Miles, ballin' in the chains
(Do you believe) that these niggas really fuck with you
When you hit rock bottom, look how many stuck with you
(Do you believe) that the devil's all around
If he knocking at your door, have strength to turn him down
(Do you believe) they can barely hear the real shit
In a world of fantasies, can you be a realist
(Do you believe) that the governments concealing
Their true intentions, apprehending those that won't be pillaged
(Do you believe) that doin' right will make you richer
And just because you paid these White folks still won't call you nigga
(Do you believe) that you can sacrifice it all
When the ball's in your court and your time has been called
(Do you believe) that God will forgive you
For those times that you didn't let Him steer you
For those times that you up and lost faith
'Cause you swore He couldn't hear you and nothing ever changed
(Do you believe) that screamin' out His name
When you lost your best friend is what really helped the pain
(Do you believe) that you never loved fame
And you wouldn't miss a dime if you lost it all today

Wake up! Wake up! Wake up! Wake up!
