Where'd It Go?

lyrics

We used to cherish all the greatness/
We used to love ours creatives/
We used to praise innovators/
And get wowed by entertainers/
We used to push ourselves and our limits/
We done fell and got stitches/
Went through hell but yo listen/
We done came back and took no shit from no gimmicks/
I put my soul in this and wish for more minutes/
To spit this shit that's slick as Rick I'm rich/
But no figures can sink or slow this ship/
No matter whoever my opponent is. I'm known for this/
But now they telling me to go slow/
I'm too smart too fast. That's a a no-no?/
So now I'm looking around and I ask where'd it go?/
Cuz the bar is so damn low/


Whatever happened to the fire and the passion?/
Whatever happened to inspiring the masses?/
Cuz I feel like I'm only getting a fraction/


I can't even see no more, no/
I can't even see it no more/
Makes me believe that the bar is the floor/
And now I'm having to ask where'd it go cuz the bar is so damn low/


I get scared for the state of the music it's all for amusement/
The opposite of smart it is stupid/
No song moves me they are useless/
It's like we are courage and the entertainment bizz is Eustace/
And I'm just trying to give my two cents/
Cuz hardly any artist has anything to do with/
Future human improvement. It's only pollution/
And I'm looking around like who's got the solution/
Cuz these kids are too faded and too jaded/
Only care about you if you famous/
Only care about the image that you making/
Then they rep it likes its there's like "It's cool ain't it?"/
It's all about the branding endorsements/
Instead your message nah that's not important/
So I'm looking around and I'm having to ask where'd it go/
Cuz the bar is so damn low/


Whatever happened to the fire and the passion?/
Whatever happened to inspiring the masses?/
Cuz I feel like I'm only getting a fraction/
