Joe Budden - All In My Head Lyrics

Quarter on the loose
Loose quarter
Few questions I ask myself

[Verse 1:]
Maybe it started with Slaughterhouse, or was it tour life?
Maybe it wouldn't had started at all if I had your life
Maybe it was needed or I was thinking immorally
If I wasn't myself could I say I gave the fans All of Me?
Can't decide if I'm more ashamed of what they saw of me
Than I am of ignoring all the lessons that was taught to me
Headed up field but couldn't dodge the last tackler
How could a forward thinker move so ass backwards
How could a dude with no regrets at all, willing to bet it all
Not realize that quicker demise, how could I neglect it all?
I'm so seasonal, some of you knew id spring back
With a heart this cold, how'd ya'll think I'd be receptive to fall
I'm plenty comfortable when danger's around
And even more so when strangers around
In a bigger picture, was sicker down on my triggers
And all the alarm enforcers
Down to a nigga, that I'm about for drugs and liquor or the harm it causes
Life and death, I tried to lynch myself
Thought I could keep it all a secret, I convinced myself
But really the folk that loved me, they could tell I was loakin
I couldn't see him, cry me a river cause it fell in the ocean
Numb to my words now, maybe felt it was open
I cut so many people loose to any need help with devotion
That's just some of the things I ask my Lord the savior
And when He calls to me, well He have done us all a favor

How did I make it here?
Who I are?
I feel so lost
Now I'm not seeing it clear
Is it my fault?
Is it my fault?
It's all in my head

[Verse 2:]
I'm looking around like this can't be happening
Round of applause for the angry rappers
Lord my girl cried me a flood then me a river
That's love depending on me when I'm a dependent on liquor
I'm up in the shoe store, she got no love to show
You ever look at a bitch she was fucking behind your bitch back like fuck I was fuckin you for, come on
I'm an artist so I'm intelligent
I would tell you to do some soul searchin
But it's hangin up in my closet with your skeleton
That's gotta be a God's work, even a diamond gotta be polished first
The quarter is on the loose and I ain't been out here getting my dollars' worth
I had to remove the goggles first
To see through the sippin patrone and 50 phonies for
I need to go get me a kidney doner
Guru, Nate Dogg, go head blink your eye
Your doctor told me you close, go ahead drink and die
Buried under the stone where the patrone 5th sits by
That reads hella somebody who never wanted to be this guy


[Verse 3:]
They say knowledge is power, great cause every day I learn
As of late been having revelations bout this hate turn
Hate the way they judge me, 2 I got the case adjourned
Hated the belly of the beast to I became it's tapeworm
When I said I'd stop getting high tried to say it's done
No, I'm the type to walk through the fire to check the way it burn
They say my brain is off, I say how can it be?
If I'm out my mind how can I be in sanity?
The people used to say that I was scared of progress
They don't know how hard a nigga tried to advance
But I don't know who's more to blame
Is it them for really not knowing me
Or is it me for never really giving them a chance?
Get too close, be too big of a threat
Now it's been little than no time
Thinking why I ain't get rid of you yet
Gotta recognize my maturity
Gotta see I'm grown
Letting my skeletons out the closet just so I never be alone
Since I got trust issues I won't discuss with you
Besides God tell me who the fuck's supposed to save you
Pop one, have one man to man, was gone half my life so
Somewhere in his head probly feel it in his place too
Plus more people will see me soon
I mean I'll be on national TV soon
So when I ask if people I have around are cancer for me
That's 4 million more that might be able to answer for me

    Sean Huesman

    schnezz07 YouTube commenters can be that stupid

  44. Tyler Porciello

    Ya. The lyrics weren't good in this song. Like, for example, "I'm so seasonal...". Do you really think it'd be "bring back". when he said seasonal?

    Cory Reinhart

    "spring back"

    Malphas Mikaelson

    @jeffrey manier Bruh. He means the lyrics in the video.

    Josh Plouffe

    Summer-spring-cold(winter ) fall..he's so seasonal ..Joey doesn't waste lines lol

  45. Ben Milli

    This is Budden and Royce at their best!!!

  46. J D

    Like TheBudden85 points out, at 0:57 he says: "I'm so seasonal, some of y'all think I'd SPRING back. With a heart this cold, how'd y'all think I'd be receptive to fall."

    Sick part


    you see..i reviewed this video at least 20 times before i uploaded and something still went over my head..makes me appreciate the line even more :)

    J D

    I even made a mistake while correcting you :P 'some of y'all knew' instead of 'some of y'all think'..

    Teddy Escoe

    I'm so seasonal, some of y'all think I'd SPRING back. With a heart this cold, how'd y'all think I'd be receptive to FALL" he also mentions, the season fall.....=]

    Mallory Shevlin

    +Teddy Escoe
    Even further with a simple twist of sounds he means
    Some of y'all = Summer y'all
    With a heart this cold= Winter heart this cold..
    He throws all seasons in the line..He's deeper than the first layer..

  47. Khue Lor

    somebody make an instrumental? this beat is too relaxing and haunting

  48. BrytOne Asapace

    I feel Joe Budden's verse. Soooo sick!

  49. Legitimacy X

    whats your point though

  50. Malphas Mikaelson

    This is probably the greatest rap song I've heard in awhile. I just love the lyrics, instrumental and the chorus fits so well.

  51. YoungJoone

    My school bus is my limo!!!!

  52. Lucas Clouthier

    I fuks wit it! Joe always went hard no homo

  53. SL0WSC0P3D

    never thought Eminem would be affiliated with Joe budden... but slaughterhouse got signed to shady interscope ... that's crazy... so pretty much Eminem and wiz khalifa and French montana all know eachother

    john atta is wiz Khalifa and French Montana related to slaughterhouse😂😂😭😭

  54. Patrick McKiernan

    Best song on the album.. And that says a lot!

  55. Angel Marrero

    This song is crazy put together amazing such a deep meaning to it both are crazy artists with amazing talents

  56. naseeb awawdeh

  57. De-Shaun Harris

    Castle from No Love Lost

  58. John Pink
