Brown, Danny - Float On Lyrics




[Verse 1:]
Backwood of that good to the pain for the brain
A cup of lean for me to sleep see I be going through things
Music business got me stressed Xanax to maintain
Waking up on wrong sides got me writing in vain
Vicodin to numb me up help me cope with the struggle
Remember praying to get in there saying rap to my brothers
And now I got the whole world listening
Give your ear for a second a life changing decision
Every other minute thoughts run through my mind
About how bad I wanted this but I cannot waste time
So I'm trapped in the beat stuck on every line
Nothing else matters except my next rhyme
You can never understand all the pressure I'm against
Getting high thinking how to make it better than your last shit
Might have a mental breakdown
If it wasn't for these pills here now
And no matter how it gets I hold on
Rolling up this dope to cope I float on
Nigga I float on

[Hook x4: Charli XCX]
I float on
Let's go
Hop up in the Chevy 4 door let's roll

[Verse 2:]
Remember back when mommy sent me for the Wonder Bread
And niggas jumped me stomped on my fucking head
It's like I learned right then you either sink or you swim
And to beat your enemy you gotta think like them
So I was up late breaking day with the gremlins
Music in my heart but my thoughts wouldn't listen
Hood outta bye bye cause rap shit was sci-fi
So I'm tormented with the things I seen with these eyes
Can't get a wink unless I'm leaning off of syrup
Dreaming of my past like a nightmare so I wake up
Staring at the ceiling with this feeling that won't go away
Until the verse is done wrote all day but them shits throwaway
So I'm breaking day sniffing Adderall writing
And not for the money for the life after dying
Pray I get old just to hear I been the future
Just to see my influence in this genre of music
And might make it to see somehow
If it wasn't for these pills here now
And no matter how it gets I hold on
Rolling up this dope to cope I float on
Nigga I float on

[Hook x4: Charli XCX]

    Love Danny Brown!

  29. Sean Clark

    Him and Charli are such a weird pairing on paper, but it fits. Heard this on acid and when her parts come in it literally felt like I was floating.

    AnonsCrossfader

    Sean Clark don't do too much acid, you might float away and never come back.

    Matt Okazaki

    Charli has that effect, even when not on acid

    Khê Vũ

    @Ryan O. LOL why the triple cs tho....
     edit: or use to potentiate with the dxm's
     effect on opioids?

  32. No Newfriends

    "If it wasnt for these pills here right now, and no matter how you get to hold on, rolling up this coke i float on...................float on."

    paula mathieson

    its rolling up this dope to cope ;) 

    No Newfriends

    @paula mathieson haha thanks for the clarification, i was like, you can't smoke coke wtf. Thought maybe he was refering to crack, but i thought he just went to jail for selling crack but never did it. I get confused easily as you can tell lol.

    Eric Robertson

    No Newfriends You can smoke coke, its called freebasing. Mike Tyson emptied a cigarette out and stuffed it full of the stuff. He was with Steve-O, it was his stash.

  33. Tommy O.

    Beat sounds like it's supposed to be a more relaxed cover of "No Snakes Alive" by King Geedorah.

    Tommy O.

    *scrolls down comments*
     
    ... damn it... I'm not the first person to notice the similarity. That's cool tho.

    X Blai2

    @Tommy O. is that doom?

    Tommy O.

    yeah, DOOM produced "No Snakes Alive". 

    Cyrus Indigo

    +Tommy O. king geedorah is doom though

  34. Isaiah Kemp

    Nothing else matters except my next rhyme
    -Danny Brown Float On

  35. Jonah Lax

    Danny Brown is wonderful. And I'm glad he's becoming popular.

  36. Sam Malacca

    Badbadnotgood..

    will johnson

    "backwood of that good" is the actual lyric

    will johnson

    @***** oh ok thought he was saying that was the lyric

    Ryan O.

    @will johnson @latelydawnIII    backwood is a type of rello

    will johnson

    @Ryan O. im aware

  37. jesus martinez

    Could someone PLEASE make the instrumental to this????

  40. Jimmy Ajlouny

    hop up in that chevy 4 door, lets roll

  41. David Sabethai

    this is so dope it feels the same way like hendrix's burning of the midnight lamp.
    beautiful

  42. lili ahari

    best track of the album

  43. Luke W

    the beat is built*

  44. Luke W

    pretty sure the built is made from a slowed down sample from No Snakes Alive. If not they're incredibly similar

  45. YANG.

    I listen to this song at least twice a day..Love this fucking song..

  46. NekkoChan0801

    haha this is not a different danny brown. this is how he used to sound back in the day.

  47. Justin Wesley

    I NEED This Instrumental In My Life!!!

  48. JP Poole

    Burn a fatty to this one, ya'll

  49. LaserGunsLG

    i love this album, but i do have to agree, i think XXX is a little more polished, despite the slightly less ambitious production

  50. LeeLid337

    Is this Danny?! Wow it's different but I'm feelin it for sure

  51. David Poteat

    BAD BAD NOT GOOD

  52. Joe Weig

    no probs its nice to have a grown up youtube arguement for once lol

  53. Joe Weig

    i dont really think they are techno i just dont know what else to call them and fyi my musical ear is just fine....i was just expecting more of his old sound (ie The Hybrid & Detroit State Of Mind tapes) after hearing "Side A" and was dissapointed with most the electronic shyt, judging by the fact that the words "euro-EDM/Grime" (whatever that is) came out of your mouth tells me you enjoy electronic music while I like hip-hop so i can see why you like it more than me. agree to disagree.

  54. 890wiley

    Bought the album, gave it three listens now, It is probably the weaker between this and 30 (xxx), but its still an incredible album very well done and well produced, Float on, 25 bucks, and dip are the three best songs, Dope Song is a great pump up song for me for some reason. 4/5

  55. unSeenima

    wow so ope

  56. Luke W

    "No Snakes Alive"... no idea if it's an actual sample, just very similar

  57. Joe Weig

    which track

  58. Joe Weig

    except 75% of the techno bs songs

  59. Luke W

    King Geedorah

  60. aids514

    album is perfect
