Track Name: Universe Works (ft. Steph the Sapphic Songstress)
Substantial
Take a look in the mirror, do you like you?
Are things getting any clearer, are you strike-through?
Do you live on lies, are you in disguise?
Do you ig' em or respond to your children cries?
Do you spend the time, to fulfill their needs?
Are you driven by money, do you live for a greed?
Are you even concerned with your people at all?
Are you the type of person that people can call?
When they luck run out, do you share with your partner
Or cut them out? Do you care?
Are you harder to get a long with cause you stuck in your ways?
Do you listen or you always got something to say?
And do you say something when you notice injustice?
Do you judge a man on what he hold in his clutches
cars and clothes, money wads and hoes
Do you lend a helping hand to the starving po'?
Because

Steph
What you do, what you say
May come back to you someday they say
That's how the Universe Works
That's how the Universe Works
Some lies soothe and the say the truth hurts
And um, that's how the universe works

Substantial
Do you teach or mislead?
Are you known to deceive?
or prove to be worthy of trust.
Would you give a live show to only thirty of us?
Or half ass through it, and act mad foolish?
Are you what most consider a bullshitter?
Would you rather strive for peace or pull triggers?
Are you a lazy bum or go getter?
Baby got shovels for hands, gold digger
Get what you put out, careful what you say and do
Can't talk shit. then get mad at what they say to you
Quick to play games, but hate when they playin' you
Love to dish it out, time to learn how to take it too
No instruction manual, don't know what to make of you
Those you fronted on now take turns to fake on you
Reevaluate your moves, really think it through
Life's full circle, homie Imma pray for you!

Steph
It's the law of life
For every wrong, a right
Watch what you say and do
'Cause it just might happen to you
Karma will come to get'cha
It's well documented in every scripture
Really do you get the picture
What goes around comes around back again
The cycle never ends my friend
So they say...

What you do, what you say
May come back to you someday they say
That's how the Universe Works
That's how the Universe Works
Some lies soothe and the say the truth hurts
And um, that's how the universe works
