[Intro: Jimmy Iovine]
{*applause*} "Fear, fear's a powerful thing.
I mean it's got a lot of firepower.
If you can figure out a way to wrestle that fear, to push you from behind
rather than to stand in front of you, that's very powerful. {*applause*}
I always felt that I had to work harder than the next guy,
just to do as well as the next guy.
And to do better than the next guy, I had to just kill.
And uhh, you know, to a certain extent, that's still with me in how I work.
You know, I just, go in."

[Anderson .Paak]
Uh, sittin 'bout a hundred stories up, like what the fuck?
And I'm just lookin at it all (I want it all!)
I'll be right here in Los Angeles
Lookin like a villain layin low
Nothin I can do but pack it all up
I'm goin up, but shit, I feel the love
Spotlight on me and I'm feelin so rare tonight
Actin a fool and feelin alive
I'm fuckin flawless like I live in a vault
Only type of livin I know

[Interlude: Anderson .Paak]
Only type of livin I
Only type of livin I
Only type of livin I
Only type of livin I know
Only type of livin I
Only type of livin I know

[Anderson .Paak - over Interlude]
Yeah, see, if it was you you would've killed yourself by now
Yeah, it takes a special kind of motherfucker, to live like this
And they ask me how I do it
Motherfucker just take a look around!

[Dr. Dre] + (Anderson .Paak)
Best believe I'm in the building!
I hear you motherfuckers talkin and all that but uh
(No no, don't mention me at all)
Yeah! Comin live and direct
And I know you feelin some type of way about it, but uh
(Watch your mouth, I dare yo' ass to say somethin!)
I thought it was all good (HEY!)
But now you motherfuckers crossed the line and (kinda pissin me off)
All the fans and all the fame
and though I gave everything to this game, they still complain
Now what the fuck do y'all expect me to do?!
(There's just so much fuckin pressure!)
There's so much pressure!
(It's all in a day's work)

[Marsha Ambrosius] + (Anderson .Paak)
Work, hard (workin so hard)
24/7, 3-6-5 (365)
Hard work
It's all in a day's work

[Dr. Dre] + (Anderson .Paak)
Uhh, my whole life all I ever thought about is grindin
Even though my surroundings only showed me crime and violence
That was back when a rapper needed guns way more than a stylist
And that was back when I felt like rappers was true motherfuckin riders
Or even back in the day when I was a fuckin youngster man
(Shit, I was still sayin +Fuck tha Police+) Man, FUCK the police
(Born and raised in the belly of the beast) Motherfuckin Hub City!
(I had a dream we was at peace, but I was so wrong, so wrong)
Y'all too wrapped up in the bullshit and bias
Now reality TV is talkin 'bout pulpits and choirs
Some of these hoes give less than a fuck when they runnin they life story by us
It's the worst when I'm in a hotel like a Hilton, sick and tired
And some of these +Housewives+ way too fuckin +Desperate+, these bitches thinkin fame first
I can't knock the hustle, shit it's (all in a day's work!)
But that's that shit with potential to make the game worse
Shit it's just somethin about that Hollywood curse, they just thirst

[Anderson .Paak]
Hard times (hard times)
I double my grind, fuck the part-time (part-time)
Stay ready for war, I'm on the front line (front line)
I'm gettin the feelin like it's all mine (all mine)
It's becomin the only feelin I know (only type of livin I)
Only type of livin I know (only type of livin I)
Only type of livin I know (only type of livin I)
Only type of livin I know (only type of livin I know, I know, I know...)

Yeah, alright already
It's time to get it
Gonna go to work, we gotta work
We gotta work
Gonna go to work, let's get back to work
On the grind back to work

[Dr. Dre] + (Anderson .Paak)
Let's work
Rich as fuck but, guess what?
I'm back to work (I'm back to work)
Overseas, back home, no time to sleep
I'm back to work (huh, I'm back to work)
So many people that I love that want my time
but I gotta work (I'm sorry I'm back to work)
Some of my friends don't understand
Shit I gotta work (I'm back to work!)
Always talkin 'bout bustin the club
but I'm like, "Fuck that, I gotta work" (fuck that, I'm workin)
If you really wanna do it like this
Shit you better get back to work (I'm workin!)
Back to work (huh)
Right back to work (right back to work)
Gotta get back to work (right back to work)
Shit, back to work (right back to work, huh)
