[Intro: Baby Bone]

If this is what you want

You got to push

You made it this far

Now show them what you do

 

[Verse 1: Kasland]

How many years did I stay in my room

And I slept half the day, let's say until noon

Turned my Xbox on, I'd be playing it soon

Treat my life like a flower that I'm waiting to bloom

Slowly lost all my friends then my girlfriend left

Just about a month later, me and her friend slept

Together and then on to the next girl, let me

Think I'm having fun, but I still felt empty

Pain bottled up, so I went insane

Almost lost this life like forget this game

So I write it all down, I expect this day

To be a new beginning, got to vent this pain

It takes a lot of patience, can't get anxious

Ripping up these tracks on an every day basis

Trying to launch off, so close, I can taste it

And when it finally happens it'll be outrageous

 

[Chorus: Kasland]

This is what I do with my headphones on

This is what I do when I'm in my zone

This is what I do when I write a new song

With a pen and a pad or I type it in my phone

Do it everywhere I go, from the house to the lab

Write the words on my mind, got a thousand to rap

Didn't think I'd make it when I was small, but I grew

Into the person that I am now this is what I do

 

[Verse 2: Kasland]

There's at least a half a dozen ways that I ached

Popped so many pills, wasn't able to wake

So I sought some help, I was taking a break

Had to check myself in before I made a mistake

Looking up at the ceiling every night that I slept

All the fear that I felt, I would write and I kept

Every lyric in my mind then I played that song

Every day in my head ’til I came back strong

Wake up by seven, eight at the latest

Got back in shape and I'm feeling my greatest

Released by the docs so I'm off my hiatus

I'm going all in, someone take me to Vegas

Chips are on the table now let the dice roll

When I finish this album I'm reclaiming my soul

No more deciding if I stay or I go

Imma run until I make it all the way and I blow

 

[Chorus: Kasland]

This is what I do with my headphones on

This is what I do when I'm in my zone

This is what I do when I write a new song

With a pen and a pad or I type it in my phone

Do it everywhere I go, from the house to the lab

Write the words on my mind, got a thousand to rap

Didn't think I'd make it when I was small, but I grew

Into the person that I am now this is what I do

 

[Bridge: Kasland]

No one's understanding me

Living in a fantasy

No one is a fan of one who can't stand up

Devil won't you dance with me

No one's understanding me

Living in a fantasy

No one is a fan of one who can't stand up

Devil won't you dance with me

Trying to make sense of the cards I was dealt

Started rapping nonsense, they were bars that I felt

Then I realized soon I was harming myself

Had to do something fast, I was starving for help

 

[Interlude: Baby Bone]

And that's what you are

A starving artist

You're hungry

You got to get out there and feast

 

[Verse 3: Kasland]

Do you know what it's like to be that outcast

Time is not your friend and it's running out fast

Can't wait for the ball, it's a hundred yard pass

Got to catch up with the pro's if you want to outlast

Other players on the field, got to climb your way up

To the top of the food chain, you got to stay up

Better make it on time cause it won't wait up

You only get one shot to claim that you came up

So here I am and here I stand

A stronger, braver, and better man

I'm rebuilding the life that I know I can

And if you're coming with me then take my hand, cause

 

[Chorus: Kasland]

This is what I do with my headphones on

This is what I do when I'm in my zone

This is what I do when I write a new song

With a pen and a pad or I type it in my phone

Do it everywhere I go, from the house to the lab

Write the words on my mind, got a thousand to rap

Didn't think I'd make it when I was small, but I grew

Into the person that I am now this is what I do

 

[Chorus: Kasland]

This is what I do with my headphones on

This is what I do when I'm in my zone

This is what I do when I write a new song

With a pen and a pad or I type it in my phone

Do it everywhere I go, from the house to the lab

Write the words on my mind, got a thousand to rap

Didn't think I'd make it when I was small, but I grew

Into the person that I am now this is what I do

 

[Outro: Baby Bone]

There's no time to rest

No time to think

There's hardly any time to act

There are quitters and then there's you
