[Intro]
You gotta know the truth, cause the truth will set you free

[Verse: Greg Cox]
Okay, Okay
Walking along this road for a long time
Do you mind if I take a step back around your way
Like, have you been wondering where I've been or not
Or not
Have you been me asking, yeah, ey
Annie are you okay?
Like manny are you okay, okay
Okay, okay
Manny are you ok...
Yeahhhh, yeahhhhhh

Beat switch

[Chorus: Greg Cox]
I've been doing this for a long time (Long time)
Still got the juice (Still got the juice)
Still got the juice, yeah, yeah
Still got the moves (Still got the moves)
Still got the moves, yeah, yeah
Yeah, yeah
I cannot lose (I cannot lose)
I been doing this for a long time
I've been doing this for a long time (Long time)
Still got the juice (Still got the juice)
Still got the juice, yeah, yeah
Still got the moves (Still got the moves)
Still got the moves, yeah, yeah
Yeah, yeah
I cannot lose (I cannot lose)
I been doing this for a long time

[Verse 1: Da' T.R.U.T.H.]
Started out in my mommas basement
16 when I pressed record
Rapping over Nas instrumentals
Used to get them from the record store
Back when cassette tapes popped
Boy biggie Pac and Escobar
About the time when that Jay dropped
Had a Holy Bible in my dresser drawer
Hold up now wait a minute
Back then there was no record deals
ITunes, no red carpets, no billboard, no mass appeal
Church thought that we was to carnal
World thought that we was too corny
Beatboxing on the lunch table
Boy tell them welcome to the new 40

[Chorus: Greg Cox]
I've been doing this for a long time (Long time)
Still got the juice (Still got the juice)
Still got the juice, yeah, yeah
Still got the moves (Still got the moves)
Still got the moves, yeah, yeah
Yeah, yeah
I cannot lose (I cannot lose)
I been doing this for a long time
I've been doing this for a long time (Long time)
Still got the juice (Still got the juice)
Still got the juice, yeah, yeah
Still got the moves (Still got the moves)
Still got the moves, yeah, yeah
Yeah, yeah
I cannot lose (I cannot lose)
I been doing this for a long time

[Verse 2: Da' T.R.U.T.H.]
20 years 10 albums in
Over 30 tours on the fact sheet
Indonesia, Australia, Africa, Athens Greece
4 Stellars
Grammy nods
My career was moving at a fast pace
Before Chance the Rapper did “How Great”
Did a tour with Kirk, 85 dates
First album dropped in '04
Now I'm tryna grow the genre up
I was paired with the pioneers and I seen them build it from the bottom up
Truth bragging truth boasting
Never that rules broken
I'm just trying to introduce myself to the new culture
Move over boy

[Chorus: Greg Cox]
I've been doing this for a long time (Long time)
Still got the juice (Still got the juice)
Still got the juice, yeah, yeah
Still got the moves (Still got the moves)
Still got the moves, yeah, yeah
Yeah, yeah
I cannot lose (I cannot lose)
I been doing this for a long time
I've been doing this for a long time (Long time)
Still got the juice (St1ill got the juice)
Still got the juice, yeah, yeah
Still got the moves (Still got the moves)
Still got the moves, yeah, yeah
Yeah, yeah
I cannot lose (I cannot lose)
I been doing this for a long time

Beat switch

[Verse 3: Da' T.R.U.T.H.]
Let's take it up a few notches
All the stuff that I accomplished
Boy you know it don't mean a thing if I don't introduce who my God is
I just know that my God is
Only reason I got this
Bank account don't define me
Even if it's hurting my pockets
It's okay if I take an L
At least I got a clear conscience
Walk away like Dave Chappelle
Principle over profit
Compromise not an option
South bound on my compass
No credit for my talents
Bow down to his highness boi

[Chorus 2: Greg Cox]
He been riding wid me for da whole time
Lay it down, put it all on the line
He been shining
He the greatest all time
He been right here with me for the whole time
He been riding wid me for da whole time
Lay it down, put it all on the line
He been shining
He the greatest all time
He been right here with me for the whole time
