Lyrics

Uh

They say a picture's worth a thousand words

You paint a canvas, better let it shine, huh

I know I done some things that's dead wrong, huh

The flash is on this little light of mine, yeah

They say a picture's worth a thousand words

You paint a canvas, better let it shine, huh

I know I done some things that's dead wrong, uh

The flash is on this little light of mine, yeah

Uh, a picture's worth a thousand words, a video worth a million

But no amount of likes can heal up all this pain that I'm feeling

Maybe conceal it, and hide in all these problems we deal with

I grew up on the principle, to raise a child, need a village

I think we all wanna be a little Instagram famous

Deep down inside, nobody really wanna be nameless

Afraid of being forgotten, so this troll shit, we plottin'

Sittin' on this phone for hours, feel my brain getting rotten

But I can give a fuck less, dawg, a nigga is poppin'

All these bitches that's flockin', shit, a nigga got options

But what's really important is such a silly distortion

We all stuck in this matrix, tryna hide our misfortunes

They say a picture's worth a thousand words

You paint a canvas, better let it shine, huh

I know I done some things that's dead wrong, huh

The flash is on this little light of mine, yeah

They say a picture's worth a thousand words

You paint a canvas, better let it shine, huh

I know I done some things that's dead wrong, uh

The flash is on this little light of mine, yeah

Uh, living in this false reality that's in this picture gallery

Based on a nigga's profile, we guessin' salary

The lifestyle you advertise was quite strategized

Make a minimal amount and then we maximize

These niggas cappin' with lies how they capitalize

Creating they own perceptions, what a massive facade

Digital marketing schemes even broader regime

Live how you want on the internet, who thought of this thing?

I mean, I guess it ain't the worst shit, if life was picture perfect

Who could paint a picture vivid as media circus?

The surface is much deeper than even the Earth is

I searched it, lookin' for purpose like my first kiss

At the same time this shit will have you feeling worthless

Back into reality, woke up and just reversed it

Now I'm a new man, even got a new 'Gram

But let me take a picture with this money by my new Lamb'

They say a picture's worth a thousand words

You paint a canvas, better let it shine, huh

I know I done some things that's dead wrong, huh

The flash is on this little light of mine, yeah

They say a picture's worth a thousand words

You paint a canvas, better let it shine, huh

I know I done some things that's dead wrong, uh

The flash is on this little light of mine, yeah
