Asher Roth - Nothing You Can't Do Lyrics

This life is all that matters,
My time is all I have and,
I came here to prove that
There's nothing that you can't do

I'm so annoyed with this world that we live in.
It's hard enough just for us to make a living.
It's the same thing
Over and over,
The world only getting
Older and older.

So we're told get a job that's safe
'Cause dreams are too fake for us to chase.
This is my life, and if that's the case,
Can I decide to design my fate?
If I wanna get high and wasted,
Then I will, and no-one can say shit.

I just hate that we're caught in this matrix,
The money we make, the government takes it,
That paves high ways, with no exits
Just more ways to get caught in traffic.
So I ask 'em,
Please do tell,
What would you do if you could not fail?

This life is all that matters,
My time is all I have and,
I came here to prove that
(There's nothing that you can't do, can't do, can't do) [x2]
There's nothing you can't-

Yeah for real, put the job on the shelf
Take a deep breath,
Spend time with yourself.
Say Hi,
Introduce you to you,
If you couldn't lose, then what would you do?

Whoop-tee-doo if you don't have a clue,
None of us do when we first leave school
You're a fool if you think that you're straight
'Cause you put on a suite and a tie everyday.
And show up to a job that you hate,
The only reason you there is 'cause you're getting paid

You waste your time,
Half awake,
For an employee discount and hourly wage.
Locked in a cage
Like a mouse with a wheel,
Patiently waiting for an occasional meal.
But with out all the bills in the mail,
What would you do if you could not fail?

This life is all that matters,
My time is all I have and,
I came here to prove that
(There's nothing that you can't do, can't do, can't do) [x2]
There's nothing you can't do

This is your life,
Take it back.
Your time here is all that you have
And it's sad,
Someone wasting their health
Working a job for somebody else

But someday, I wanna be a dad,
With a son to play cath with
And teach how to bat.
So with that,
I decided to rap,
Since then it ain't been that bad

This life is all that matters,
My time is all I have and,
I came here
To prove that
There's nothing that you can't do
Can't do, can't do [x4]
