Intro x4)
I get ma energy from ma inner G

Hook)
I get ma energy from ma inner G
I get ma energy from ma inner gang
I get ma energy from ma inner galaxy
Nobody can even fake it, can imitate

I get ma energy from ma inner G
I get ma energy from ma inner gang
I get ma energy from ma inner galaxy
Nobody can even scheme it, can imitate

Verse 1)
The top keeps spinning, my dream will never stop
Your head is my totem, I don’t stop
So I get ma energy from moving
up, and down again, my fingertips ride waves

they make me get up, I just wait
uh for the sun to set. PM and AM
are interchanged on my watch. A huge cerebrum
I vomit out the right part, ah, ah, I made it again1)Wordplay: “vomit out,” “made it again,” and “more to achieve” (see following line) all sound similar in Korean

Ah, there are still way more things to achieve
Boom boom, I fly while just exploding my potential
A shower of cheers like light above the clouds, they growl
That is my energy, my guarantee, that is my power

Climb)
I get ma energy from ma inner G

Hook)
I get ma energy from ma inner G
I get ma energy from ma inner gang
I get ma energy from ma inner galaxy
Nobody can even scheme it, can imitate

I get ma energy from ma inner G
I get ma energy from ma inner gang
I get ma energy from ma inner galaxy
Nobody can even fake it, can imitate

Verse 2)
Ma energy ma flow
I don’t ever confine you, I just let you flow
Following that blood vessel there, making natural movements
The greatest feeling possible of being moved by music

I brag all the time, I brag lika python
Music is my asset, so I am rich alright
The most expensive amongst my accessories are
ma energy, ma flow

Outro x4)
Uh uh, you just follow ma energy ma flow

Hook)

I rap lika python
I swag lika python
I brag lika python

I rap I swag I brag lika python
I rap lika python
I brag lika python
Ay

Verse)
daze alive,2)Sleeq’s label lil colossus,3)= Sleeq; reference to her song ‘Little Colossus’ we’re ready
Jerry4)Jerry.k is the CEO of daze alive got the python,5)= Sleeq the rarest item
It’s a role that nobody in this game can manage to play
Not a bitch not a hoe, cause I’m not a prostitute

My occupation is being a rapper, an iron bowl6)Implies that she / her presence in the scene is strong; also see here
I do not take off my clothes, I told ya I’m not a prostitute
I’m making a living by using my voice, right, uh
It’s a commotion, “Who’s that kid?”

Uh, yes I’m small and spicy, jalapeño
After listening, everyone is astonished7)Pun; in Korean, to be astonished lit. means ‘to brandish the tongue’ → because she’s spicy (see previous line)
But I still have a lot to do, like Al Pacino when he finished ‘The Godfather’
After that: Scarface, Montana shit

One out of all kinds of rumors:
people talk about which female rapper is the best these days
Stop talking about looks, in this scene
there is exactly one proper female rapper

Without a break, I run, I run, I run like a marathon
The bastards who thought it was short-distance now have a stomachache
They’re jealous of what I do8)Pun; in Korean, jealous lit. means ‘to have a stomachache’ (see previous line)
Now their heads hurt from looking up at me

This battlefield is like The Matrix,
virus vs. vaccine9)Implies that Sleeq is the vaccine to the viruses aka the other (female?) rappers.
I’m the one player that will survive
I fight until the end, I never withdraw10)Pun; in Korean, “not withdraw” here is ‘안철수’ (ahn cheol soo), and Ahn Cheol-soo is a businessman and politician who ran for presidency in 2012 but dropped out

I’m curious about my next verse
My greatest trait is that I get better and better
Since I first grabbed the mic, it has never changed
Like a knitted sweater you’ve worn for a long time, it just rucks up11)In Korean, “to ruck up” lit. means ‘to go up’, ‘to get better’

When I go up, your senses decline
I’m sorry, my cellphone will apologize instead12)Pun; in Korean, apologize (사과) can also mean ‘apple’ → reference to her cellphone being an iPhone
When my lyrics are innovative, expectations are a component
Like a dog that is losing its baby teeth, I’m biting everything

Outro)
Ay ay
daze alive
Ay
