    Lyrics

    [Intro - Phonte]
    This life have a nigga hustling man
    Niggas need to slow it down yo
    Sit back just chill just relax
    Speeding down the roads of life
    Yo check it

    [Verse 1 - Phonte]
    Another day to face, I'm share cropping in the paper chase
    Take a deep breath and clear my database
    It's afternoon I'm talking shit to my alarm clock
    Cause I gotta face this world of capitalistic onslaught
    Don't stop when I jump in the whip, tryin to get it off
    Beltline got me rushin like Barichnakof
    Pushin 80 miles per hour to this, call center
    Tryin to pick up a check I only see twenty percent a
    Until the weekend, it sound crazy when I'm sayin it
    But sleep is nice, got me forgettin what day it is
    Until my son two days with out speakin, looking for
    Reasons to keep my heir from goin off the deep end
    I take this shit personally, I'm makin moves
    But this treadmill lifestyle ain't workin for me
    It's from ya crib to ya lab to ya job to make a profit
    And at the days end you still got nothing accomplished
    And it's just the way it's goin down, but on the real
    I think I need to slow it down and slow it down

    [Chorus]
    This joint is goin too fast for me
    Just too fast for me
    Just too fast for me
    Just too fast for me
    This really movin too fast for me
    Just too fast for me and you

    [Verse 2 - Big Pooh & Phonte]

    [Big Pooh]
    I try to slow it down like Brand Nubian
    But hypnotic tunes like this always do me in
    Got a nigga about to go and burn the road again
    From first gear to fifth gear out of control again

    [Phonte]
    And that's the way we rolling in, needed to chill
    And take a rest stop cause my job got me slaving like
    I'm Dred Scott, take a break nah nigga you betta not
    Cause that's when the respect stops energy drain
    I need a blast like Hi-Tek got so I can grab
    The mic and make you're heads bop with the microphone check
    One two it don't stop, out of town on a quick
    Escape hoping to have a chance to slow it up and hit the breaks
    And slow it down

    [Chorus]
    This joint is goin too fast for me
    Just too fast for me
    Just too fast for me
    Just too fast for me
    This really movin too fast for me
    Just too fast for me and you

    [Verse 3 - Big Pooh & Phonte]

    [Big Pooh]
    I let me life shine in between these papers lines
    I write rhymes to incite minds
    Spending time on this pipeline, eighty-five
    North it's like mine, going eighty five to light minds
    Going ninety five to take time
    Spending days in the rays of the sunshine
    Many days those same rays went undefined
    Now forty east is where I go to have my best times
    Three lanes going sixty to perfect rhymes
    Tre dose and master craft catch punch lines
    We turning early morning late night times
    Amtrack Monday morning to come back rides
    Catch a couch on the weekend, a place I rarely did sleep in
    Tay (Phonte) car speaker knobs is tweakin
    Cause the way we be rockin it when joints is finished
    At the speed we be moving we could never be diminished

    [Phonte]
    With my energy replenished write a rhyme with puns and
    All my similes intended speed out until I finish
    Keep it on now
    We keep it, and keep it, and keep it on now
    And keep it, and keep it, we keep it on now
    We run it, we do it, we keep it on now
    We do it, we did it, we keep it on now
    We don't stop

    [Chorus x2]
    This joint is goin too fast for me
    Just too fast for me
    Just too fast for me
    Just too fast for me
    This really movin too fast for me
    Just too fast for me and you
    This joint is goin too fast for me
    Just too fast for me
    Just too fast for me
    Just too fast for me
    This really movin too fast for me
    Just too fast for me and you
