MACKLEMORE lyrics : "Jimmy lovine"

I put my life on the line
I roll them dice and I'm fine
Cause all I ever dreamt about was makin' it

They ain't giving it, I'm taking it

I'm taking it, taking it, they ain't giving it

I'm taking it, taking it, they ain't giving it
I'm taking it, taking it, they ain't giving it
I'm taking it, taking it, I need all that %#@!


If I just went in this slowly the police wouldn't notice
Gotta be strategic, creepin, go in, leave with that motive

Hold up, my plan is forming, alright, case in this building
Watch these rappers that rappin' walk in and leave out with millions
Cut in and sway there, open that front door

And it's gold printed out right by the entrance door closes
Then a metaphor, then I start towards
That front, that's right, where you check in

Dressed in an uniform, acting like a janitor
All blue, jumpsuit, why shoot?
Bloodthirsty for the money like a bull

Looking in the eyes of the matador ($#&@ you!)
Carrying 2 cans of paint, Security looks at me awkward
I say third floor I'm late, Paintin' Jimmy Iovine's office

Holding my breath 'bout to faint
I'm scared to death that he stops me
Heart beating so loud you can hear the echo in that lobby

And see I'm breaking down if I don't make it out
Then I'm leaving town with that contract
And I'm spazzing out, cover the in or out

Loose chair and I'm taking him hostage
I don't give a $#&@, step into the elevator press 3
Now I'm headed up (Heist!)

What they don't know is there is a gun and a paint can
And I'm ready and willing to bust 'em, I'm $#&@ing desperate
Stuck in this recession not what you think

But if I could get signed my life is destined
My future depends on ink
And secretary at the front of the entrance staring right at me

I walk up she whispers go ahead and then gives me a wink

I put my life on the line

I roll them dice and I'm fine
Cause all I ever dreamt about was makin' it
They ain't giving it, I'm taking it


I'm taking it, taking it, they ain't giving it
I'm taking it, taking it, they ain't giving it

I'm taking it, taking it, they ain't giving it
I'm taking it, taking it, I need all that %#@!


If I get past security, the secretary, the cubicals
But it's weird, it's like this room I've walked into is unusual
Thought it would be shiny and beautiful

Thought it would be alive and like musical
But it feels like someone died, it's got the vibe of a funeral
There's numbers on a chalkboard

CDs boxed in cardboard
Artists that flopped, that got dropped and never got to be sophomores


Graphic designers are sitting around
Waiting for albums that never come out
Complainin' that they have nobody in house

Wonderin' what they make art for
I start thinking, am I in the right place?
Just walk forward, see plaques on the wall

Aw yea, in a second those will be all yours

Finally see an office with a mounted sign, heaven sent

Big block silver letters, read it out loud: President (nice!)
This was my chance to grab that contract and turn and jet
Right then felt a cold hand grab on the back of my neck


He said: we've been watching you, so glad you could make it
Your music it's so impressive in this whole brand you created

You're one hell of a band, we here think you're destined for greatness
And with that right song we all know that you're next to be famous

Now I'm sorry, I've had a long day remind me, now what your name is?
That's right, Macklemore, of course, today has been crazy

Anyway, you ready? We'll give you a hundred thousand dollars
After your album comes out we'll need back that money that you borrowed
So it's really like a loan, a loan? Come on, no
We're a team, 360 degrees, we will reach your goals!
You'll get a third of the merch that you sell out on the road

Along with a third of the money you make when you're out doing your shows
Manager gets 20, booking agent gets 10
So %#@!, after taxes you and Ryan have 7% to split
That's not bad, I've seen a lot worse, No one will give you a better offer than us (mm-hm)
I replied I appreciate the offer, thought that this is what I wanted

Rather be a starving artist than succeed at getting $#&@ed
