By Any Means
by Superlative

By Any Means was written in 2018.
Self produced, the instrumental has an air of darkness.
The chilled tempo is juxtaposed by the hard hitting drums and bass
to symbolise inner conflict.
Superlative is coming to terms with his demons
Realising that this journey of growth isn’t about fame or fortune,
but one of internal freedom.
A battle that is too familiar within creative beings, but also achievable By Any Means necessary.
lyrics
If you really want it go and get it
This ain’t the Secret boi I said it
This ain’t the place for those nice settings
But is the fame much better?
Cuz they watch every move
We musta improved
Leaving ’em confused like we front page of the news
Got me feeling like I’m loose
I wanna be free
By any means
I said by any means
(Oh oh oh)

I wanna be free
So I let my mind fly
My brother asks why
But he don’t see the bad side
The constant fight to act right
All of my bad vibes
Locked inside, a matter of time
’til it hits me back
I’m 22 but I’m feeling older
Rough round the egdes
Lacking things my mother told us
Education in abundance
I’m no dunce
I’m just not thinking straight
And it’s complication
I bun up and everything just fades

We feel that weight drop
Temperature rockets and I’m not cold now
We in the zone and yet most of my niggas zoned out
And they’ve been calling my name like I fit the throne
How did we touch base in 09 and I run the show now

I’m the King!

That’s what they tellin me
Even my enemies wanna be friends with me
I’m too mad
Pass me that Henny please
I guess if we’re doing shit that we don’t
Then I’ll take 2
Actually pass on that last request
I’m already feeling a mess
Just cuz my lyrics portray my image as blessed
I’m not blessed
Yeah we feel stress
If I did not meet with my team I’d have lost my head
I think I need another sentence
Rehabilitation was a mention
We don’t see sleep in this section
Me alone, me alone
Seeking direction
I’m screaming for them
This speech is repenting
This sequence is endless

Only my self to push all the blame
(only my self)
If only myself can resort to haze in this stage of the pain
Minimal
What if I win it all?
What if my freedom is granted but I’m not here to score?
What if they take me and shape me into a minion?
Sway the way that my vision portrayed as they a paint picture
Unstable as I’m considered
I want it that bad
But if I risk it all then I’m afraid I won’t deliver
But

If you really want it go and get it
This ain’t the Secret boi I said it
This ain’t the place for those nice settings
But is the fame much better
Cuz they watch every move
We musta improved
Leaving ’em confused
Like we front page of the news
(I did that)
Got me feeling like I’m loose
I wanna be free
By any means
I said by any means
(Oh oh)

If you really want it go and get it
This ain’t the Secret boi I said it
This ain’t the place for those nice settings
But is the fame much better
Cuz they watch every move
We musta improved
Leaving ’em confused like we front page of the news
(I did that)
Got me feeling like I’m loose
I wanna be free
By any means
I said by any means
(Oh oh oh)
