Patience Is the Virtue Lyrics

Slaves
Never done it the way I should
So impatient, misunderstood
I've always let a girl dictate my feelings, yeah
Too distracted, too direct, too numb
So I neglect the things I should protect
I'm ready for what is next

I've made mistakes
You've made a judgement
Focused on a life of substance
I'm tired of waiting
I know I need to face it
I'm building
I'm zoned in
I'll never be complacent

I'm on the way up
I need to be patient, patient like I've never been
Nothing can hold me
I need to be patient, patient like I've never been

They say, "Hurry up and wait, hurry up and wait"
Eyes on the gold and everytime I see the gold I froze
Best cards in the f****** deck but I fold
It's like I'm stuck in a place that I can't call home

And I ain't circling the block no more

Why do I do this to myself over and over again?

I'm on the way up
I need to be patient, patient like I've never been
Nothing can hold me
I need to be patient, patient like I've never been
I'm on the way up
I need to be patient, patient like I've never been
Nothing can hold me
I need to be patient, patient like I've never been

And I could almost touch the sky
Keep my head down, it's my time
No feeling done, asking why
Keep my head down, it's my time
I'm ready for what is next

I'm on the way up
I need to be patient, patient like I've never been
Nothing can hold me
I need to be patient, patient like I've never been
I'm on the way up
I need to be patient, patient like I've never been
Nothing can hold me
I need to be patient, patient like I've never been
