Album: Destined For Greatness
by Ty Brasel


[Verse 1]
Yeah, look I put my heart and soul
Stressing to make ends meet
24 hours no sleep at 23
That can't be healthy
Feel like 22 revolver aimed at me
Aimlessly running from the bullet
Of fading dreams can't get caught
In complacency, mhm
I became a man before 21
Faced with the trauma and obstacles
That life had brung I decided to
Put my story on wax like Afeni son
My heart sung, melodies in monotone
To monetize the microphone mhm
So 20 engineered my first mixtape
I was 19 working seven double shift days, uh-huh
18 months prior I was listening to
Professor lecture me about my A.D.D
Said you need to get inspired
Or see an advisor quick
All the while I conspired to make
17 songs with the greatest 16's on it
Yeah that'll make me rich
15 dollars to your name
Make you dream big, yeah yeah

[Chorus]
Greatness, greatness, yeah
Gotta stay patient, gotta keep praying
Back to the basics, stick to the plan yeah
Greatness, yeah yeah
Greatness, Greatness, whoa
Gotta stay patient, gotta keep praying
Back to the basics, stick to the plan yeah
Greatness, mhm

[Verse 2]
I remember young and reckless
When I turned 14, Grandma said
You gon' be special, I'm gon' watch you
On this TV screen from my living room
With Papa you best believe it but
Leave it to me to ruin my destiny
See I just wanted to get money
With my brethren one way or the next one
Yeah, we saw laws like Jason
On Friday the 13th running from 12
In my Jordan 11's jump fences
Like hurdle stepping yes man
I was just young and misled
I needed a man to show me how to
Be a man and stand on all 10, toes
Lead me to the promised land 'cause
The devil he want my soul, and deception
Glisten like gold, and 9 times out of 9
I'm tempted, to twist an 8th
Into 8 swishers and take pills instead
Try to numb the pain away
From the feeling that we feel today
It get real when life take toll and change
My heart can only take so much
On the road to greatness it's roadblocks
Detours and speedbumbs, I thought the
First time I crashed I was gonna die young
But from the 7th Heaven I heard voice like angels
They said, "don't quit, the journeys only begun"

[Chorus]
Greatness, greatness, yeah
Gotta stay patient, gotta keep praying
Back to the basics, stick to the plan yeah
Greatness, yeah yeah
Greatness, Greatness, whoa
Gotta stay patient, gotta keep praying
Back to the basics, stick to the plan yeah
Greatness, mhm

[Verse 3]
On the 6th day, God said let there be
Man and Woman, He saw it
Said it was good and said I got plans for you
Great ones, daughters and sons
I'll teach you how to make
5 loaves, from the breadcrumbs
When it look like nothing, He turn
Impossible possible
From broken homes and hospitals
From project zones and prodigals
I promise look, life will beat you down
To all 4, but this the final thing I gotta
Say to you and yours, look
In 3 days, risen came the King of glory
If God can bring life from the dead then
Rest assuring look, it's 2 sides to the story
And this where kingdom come
I wrote this song to tell you
That you the 1, you destined for greatness
