Today, nobody cares 
But tomorrow they will, they will 
Today, nobody cares 
But, oh, tomorrow they will, they will 

They said my future was dark 
You see me now? 
Just look around 
I'm beamin' 

(We are) They used to talk 
When I wasn't around (Lasers) 
You see me now (We're not) 
(Losers) I'm beamin' 

I get my energy from my inner G 
I be in outer space, but I got inner peace 
So tell my enemies that they can't injure me 
I know that irritates, you have my sympathies 
Well, you should protest, yeah, you should picket me 
I'm on a losing strike, I'm on a winning streak 
I'm out in left field, I'm speaking mentally 
But that's a better places than where the benches be 
I'm feelin' really good, me and different beat 
Me and my different drummer, he play the timpanis 
See, that's what got me here, you hearin' me 
Me on my black man in the future shit, call me Billy Dee 
See, I'm just forward-looking, that's how I really see 
See, while you Valentimes, I'm thinking Christmas trees 
And that's how this would be, even at Mickey D's 
Semicolon, close parentheses 

They said my future was dark 
You see me now? 
Just look around 
I'm beamin' 

They used to talk 
When I wasn't around 
You see me now 
I'm beamin' 

Do you remember me, the guy from verse one? 
Failure's my last name, Never's my first one 
You see I hood a lot, and yeah I nerd some 
Hood's where the heart is, nerd's where the words from 
Don't represent either, because I merged them 
'S kids who wanna leave, and I encourage them 
Go out and see the world, never return from 
Yeah, you don't come back, unless you learn some 
And baby girl, what does it matter where your purse from? 
Your hurr done, your nails did, your ass fat, but you're dumb 
Mix Melyssa Ford with Maya Angelou 
Become a top model and Sojourner too 
I try to follow this, what Muhammad do 
It's such a old soul inside the sonic youth 
Swear I'm Ferrari'd up, and I'm conscious, too 
I don't prophesize... I promise you 

They said my future was dark 
You see me now? 
Just look around 
I'm beamin' 

They used to talk 
When I wasn't around (Lasers) 
You see me now (Ha) 
I'm beamin' 

Yeah, it's me again, the guy from verse two 
Well, this the last one, it's almost curfew 
It's almost night out, so turn your lights on 
Where all my 760s, witcha brights on? 
Yeah, they are the ones to keep your eyes on 
Like how we used to do, to keep the house warm 
Now those the type of eyes, I not cry from 
You see the tears of fire run out my cryin' songs 
Now the world's shoulders is what we cryin' on 
The world's fast lane is what I'm drivin' on 
What am I driving at? I'm tryna drive it home 
I'm in the driver's seat, but you can ride along 
'Cause never cyclops, it's never I alone 
I'm tellin' your story wherever I perform 
Now if they lookin' for me, tell 'em I've gone 
Out in the bright lights, right where I belong 

They said my future was dark 
You see me now? 
Just look around 
I'm beamin' 

They used to talk 
When I wasn't around 
You see me now 
I'm beamin'
